"I'm your biggest fan!" the young man said. "I wanna be like you, dark, dangerous-"
Batman studied him. "Are you kind?"
"I try to be."

Does he, though? It's been a while since I've seen an incarnation of Batman try to be kind

Not my fault they're writing him wrong. ;-)
He adopts an awful lot of robins, and I think that's partly out of kindness.

@MicroSFF yeah, recent Batman movies have had a depressing lack of Robin. Maybe someone was traumatized by the Mr. Freeze movie.

Well, film Batman... While I enjoyed Nolan's films, they explicitly looked at the dark side, and since they were so successful, that seems to have stuck.
