Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_3'); })Detective Comics published the first story of "The Bat-Man" in May of 1939, written by Bill Finger and illustrated by Bob Kane. In the years since then, Batman has become one of DC's premier superheroes; along with Superman and Wonder Woman, Batman comprises a vital part of DC's Trinity. And in the decades that have followed his debut, the Caped Crusader has been influenced by a slew of great artists and writers; each having a unique interpretation of the character and a good number leaving a lasting impression on the Dark Knight and his world.Yet being published in at least one, then two, book(s) continuously for 70 years presents two problems: (1) how to keep the character of Batman interesting and (2) how to keep the character from becoming too esoteric as time goes on. Batman, like most of the DCU, had at least two attempts to reconcile this, by first separating the Golden Age Batman from the Silver Age Batman and then later by partially rebooting Batman's history with the Crisis Crossovers of Crisis on Infinite Earths and Zero Hour!.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_2'); })In the wake of Infinite Crisis, Batman's history was rebooted yet again. But as the readers would soon discover, this reboot would not remove anything from Batman's past this time around; in fact the exact opposite occurred.After the end of Batman's "One Year Later" story, noted writer Grant Morrison became the head writer for the eponymous "Batman" monthly magazine. As Morrison's run went on, fans soon discovered that all of the previously removed portions of Batman's history had been restored to full Canon status in some way or another. ALL OF IT. (Even the bits that contradict the other bits!)Morrison has stated that he intends his work to be part of a series, with "four [collected] volumes and, if the cards are right, a fifth volume, a final volume": His complete Batman run includes the following:Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_1'); }) Batman and Son The Three Ghosts of Batman The Resurrection of Ra's al Ghul (A Bat Family Crossover) The Black Glove Batman R.I.P. Last Rites ("The Butler Did It" and "What the Butler Saw") The Missing Chapters Batman and Robin Batman #700 Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne Batman: The Return Batman Inc.Previously, Morrison wrote a Batman story called Batman: Gothic, which explores some of the same themes as this run. See also Arkham Asylum: A Serious House on Serious Earth, released in 1989 by the same author.

Continuity Porn: Hey, remember all those old Silver Age stories where Batman visited other worlds?

Also, Morrison manages to bring back the entire International Club of Heroes (sometimes known as the Batmen of All Nations).

While not necessary to understand the events on what is going on per se, it can provide the proper context to the backstory of what Morrison is writing.

Death by Origin Story: Batman Inc. introduces two more characters with similarly tragic pasts to Batman. Mr. Unknown, the future Batman of Japan, took on the role after his friend and mentor was tortured and killed in a very gruesome manner. Batwing is a former child soldier from Congo whose parents died of AIDS when he was a boy.

Mythology Gag
 Grant Morrison's Batman (Comic Book) / int_26ac510e
comment
Mythology Gag: There are numerous references to the famous scene of Batman: Year One where Bruce decides on whether or not to call Alfred for help when the bat crashes in the window, implying that was the moment that man became legend. The tale of Barbatos and Hurt originated from the "Dark Knight, Dark City" arc in the Batman monthly. The Batcave West features mementos from past adventures of the Outsiders, including Black Lightning's afro mask and the costume of Dad from the Nuclear Family. There's also a giant penny with Simon Stagg's face on it, a gag on Joe Coyne's giant penny in the original Batcave. Many have speculated that Batwing owes his design to an Imagine Spot from the classic "The Batman Nobody Knows" story from the '70s.[1]◊ Mutants also make an appearance in Batman Incorporated #1, indecipherable slang and all. Referring to the 1989 Batman movie, Bruce publicly announces his "Batman Inc." program by saying, "A lot of people has asked, 'Where does Batman get all those wonderful toys?'..."

The Antichrist: Assuming Batman is the Christ: Devil-Batman is initially implied to be this. Batman mentions having visions of his son Damian becoming the Anti-Antichrist in a possible future. It's later implied that the Heretic might be the real deal. His origins do seem strangely prophetic.

Out of Focus
 Grant Morrison's Batman (Comic Book) / int_32da91b8
comment
Out of Focus: His run excludes a portion of Batman's supporting cast (particularly Oracle, Huntress, the police other than Gordon) as well as most of his rogues gallery (with the main exceptions being The Joker and Talia, as well as brief appearances by Harley and Langstrom) in favor of new characters as well as the characters being brought back from obscurity. Although on the flipside, most of the characters he ignores are covered in Paul Dini's Bat-books. This is a Justified Trope in that most of the Rogues Gallery is in either Arkham or prison. Subverted in Batman Inc., where most of the characters Morrison was accused of excluding have appeared. Oracle, Batgirl, Cassandra Cain, and Red Robin have all shown up in some capacity so far. Then played straight again - Batwoman, Oracle and Batgirl are all absent from the New 52's version of Batman Incorporated, though with the latter two it's kinda understandable.

Batman Gambit
 Grant Morrison's Batman (Comic Book) / int_38d02d44
comment
Batman Gambit: Of course. There are a few, but the one from Return of Bruce Wayne stands out. Essentially everything after Bruce says "Trust me" to Superman in the second chapter and has his memory wiped is a scheme to confuse Darkseid's Omega Adaptor into fixating on the wrong entity (one of the archivists from Vanishing Point who impersonates Bruce) so it can be brought back to the 21st century to be separated from him and dealt with by the Justice League. It's a Batman Gambit as Bruce has no idea how the JLA will deal with the adaptor, he just knows that they'll figure it out somehow.

Character Development
 Grant Morrison's Batman (Comic Book) / int_3b113b7
comment
Character Development: Damian Wayne, who goes from being a whiny snot to a boy doing his best to live up to his father's legacy. Done more subtly and depressingly with Batman himself. Towards the end of "R.I.P." he seems exhilarated by the idea that he can confront the "ultimate evil" himself, and he openly acknowledges that he's often attracted to the evil in his more morally ambivalent or outright criminal lovers, confident in his ability to detach himself when he needs to as he does with Jezebel Jet.. After the Fate Worse than Death he escapes in battle with Darkseid and the horrifying personal and general Collateral Damage from his conflict with Talia, who sets out to be the ultimate villain specifically to win his affections, as well as learning the Awful Truth about his previous romantic partnerKathy Kane, he seems to be more sadly resigned to his endless battle with evil and troubked by his romantic interest in "bad girls" by the end of Batman, Incorporated.

Bittersweet Ending
 Grant Morrison's Batman (Comic Book) / int_40cc0c7e
comment
Bittersweet Ending: Talia, Dr. Dedalus, the Heretic, and Leviathan as a whole have been destroyed, but Damian and Knight died in the process. Ra's al-Ghul has been freed from his prison and is setting to work reforming the League of Assassins, The Joker has reinvented himself and will continue to do so as long as he lives, and attempts to investigate Spyral will most likely result in nothing of real note, meaning that they'll all get away with their crimesnote and will lead him to become desperate enough to send his olden surrogate son as a double agent later on. Dr. Hurt and the Black Glove have been defeated, Jason has redeemed himself in the eyes of the Bat-Family by temporarily acting as the new Wingman, and Squire takes on Knight's mantle. Kathy Kane is actually alive but her and Batman will never be together again. Batman Inc. go their separate ways having saved the world, but all feeling that the cost was too great. In the end Batman himself, though devastated by Damian's death, refuses to give up and sets to work protecting Gotham and the world once more being ready, willing, and able to save everyone... except himself.

Smug Super: Wingman and El Gaucho practically duel to see who gets to embody this trope; Wingman insists he came up with the "dark knight" persona before Batman did, while El Gaucho thinks Wingman is a scrub because he's never been mind controlled by a gorilla. Well maybe Wingman was. What El Gaucho was trying to say was that Wingman shouldn't look down on the Knight just because he's had some problems in the past... One of which just happened to be mind-controlled by a gorilla. Red Hood believed his was the next epoch in crime fighting. Then he got shot in the face.

Through the Eyes of Madness: The middle half of R.I.P, which takes place from the perspective of "The Batman of Zurr-En-Arr", which appears to be Bruce's mind utterly snapping under the duress of his situation. This is actually somewhat of a subversion, as it's revealed that Bruce created this "Zurr-En-Arr" personality as a backup in the event that his normal personality becomes "corrupted" somehow. Upon seeing Jezebel in danger, the personality releases control back onto Bruce, who tries to save her.

The Reveal
 Grant Morrison's Batman (Comic Book) / int_6b2b3b59
comment
The Reveal: The Resurrection of Ra's al Ghul revealed that the Sensei was Ra's's father. You know what Gravediggers are also referred to in Shakespearean literature? Clowns. Now what is old Oberon's real name again? After the Black Glove's escape from Arkham, it had been revealed that almost all of the core members were murdered over the course of several months. At first, we are lead to believe that it was due to the League of Assassins. As it turns out, not only was the League not responsible, all the murders had a striking similarity to them: they were murdered in such a way that only the Joker would find them funny. Doctor Hurt is a result of Darkseid's fall through space and time prior to Final Crisis. More specifically, Doctor Hurt was "Thomas Wayne", an 18th century ancestor of Bruce Wayne's who worshipped a Bat Devil known as "Barbatos". However, "Barbatos" turned out to be Darkseid's Omega Adaptor, which turned Thomas immortal and insane (moreso). Bruce's parents tried to help Hurt by putting him in Willowood Asylum (a reference to an old Silver Age story where Bruce has a brother, Thomas Wayne Jr, who went insane and had to be put in an asylum), but he didn't want their pity, so (after they were dead) Hurt arranged to tarnish their names and summon "Barbatos" again using a secret box that's said to bring about the end of the world when opened. What's inside the box, though? A batarang and a note that says "Gotcha". The Heretic, Talia's Elite Mook in Batman Incorporated, is a clone of Damian birthed inside of a whale.

Meaningful Name: Oberon Sexton, "The Gravedigger." Not only are Shakespearean Gravediggers also referred to as "Clowns", as mentioned below, but Oberon's the King of the Fairies, or, alternately, King of the Fey. Fey-king = Faking. It's a joke, kids! Much earlier, Harley Quinn breaks into Arkham Asylum to break the Joker by pretending to be a psychiatrist named "Jane Wisakedjak". As Batman points immediately points out, Wisakedjak is an Algonquin trickster spirit. The joke is rather spoiled by the fact that there was a real psychiatrist of that name, and Harley simply killed her and stole her credentials.

Driven to Suicide: In Batman 673, this seems to be established as Joe Chill's latest canon fate; after stalking/tormenting Chill, Batman finally reveals his identity and then gives the depressed Chill the same handgun that he had used to kill Bruce's parents. The next page shows Batman stoically staring on with two gunshots being fired. Also, winds up being Professor Carter Nichols' fate in Batman 700.

Superman Stays Out of Gotham
 Grant Morrison's Batman (Comic Book) / int_70489c17
comment
Superman Stays Out of Gotham: The events of Batman Incorporated has worldwide ramifications that sends Gotham into a state of anarchy and chaos that has deteriorated to the point of Batman becoming a wanted vigilante for the first time since his inception. Despite this, none of the Justice League, which Batman is a member of both before and during the New 52, seem to take notice and lend a hand. And before that, we have The Return of Bruce Wayne, which averts this as it deals with the Justice League trying to figure out how to prevent Batman from destroying the universe. However, it plays it straight once more as Batman And Robin's "Batman and Robin Must Die!" arc is happening simultaneously as Return and the Justice League don't join Batman in taking back his city. After this, Morrison's run separates itself completely from the larger DC universe.

And the Adventure Continues: The final issue ends on an usually somber version of this. Talia is dead, Gotham is saved and Bruce sincerely wants to retire as Batman but that fantasy is short lived as Damian and Talia's graves have been robbed and Ra's Al Ghul seems to be mounting a new plan using Damian's clones. The last issue ends with the acknowledgement that Batman's mission will never end.

I Coulda Been a Contender!: Played straight and subverted with the different members of the Batmen of All Nations; the team-up that could have propelled them to international repute ended up sputtering out after only two meetings. The members ended up reacting quite differently, running the spectrum of this trope; some, like El Gaucho and Man Of Bats, ended up thriving and being quite content operating within their local spheres of influence rather than as an international JLA-style powerhouse (and Man Of Bats actually prefers being a defender of the little guy). On the flip side of the coin, we have Wingman, who for all his over-compensating clearly suffers from this trope worst of all. It's what prompts his Face–Heel Turn.

Entertainingly Wrong: Batman concludes that the Joker's playing card suits were a reference to the red and black poisoned flower petals used against Batman during the climax. They weren't. The Joker was addressing Batman's skill at solving these kinds of things by providing a riddle with no answer. The Joker's crazy, you can't expect him to be honest all the time.

Eldritch Abomination: Darkseid in Final Crisis, whose very presence is enough to bring about Earth's Darkest Hour and potentially send all of reality into a dark oblivion. Darkseid's pet Hyper-Adapter. A time-travelling squid thing that torments Bruce Wayne in The Return of Bruce Wayne. It's implied that the Hyper-Adapter is the reason Dr. Hurt and Vandal Savage were able to live beyond their mortal lifespans, simply by coming into contact with it. Mandrakk, the Vampire Monitor. An ancient entity that lives in the darkest depths of the universe, waiting for Darkseid to drag reality right into his open drooling maw. What the hell was that thing on Bat-Mite's back?

Cerebus Retcon
 Grant Morrison's Batman (Comic Book) / int_8b67aba7
comment
Cerebus Retcon: Applied to the Silver Age stories. Although they are brought back from Canon Discontinuity status, they are done so in a darker light as they are associated with drug influence or resulting from Batman's containment experiment. Many scenes from the Silver Age comics are redone in darker and creepier ways (particularly the "Robin Dies at Dawn!" and the altered version of the Joe Chill story). It;s especially evident in the revised origin and backstory for the 1950s Batwoman, now revealed to be a master spy whose entire heroic career was an assignment to learn all of Batman's secrets and possibly the daughter of an unrepentant Nazi war criminal It's a far cry from the early Silver Age innocence that the character usually signifies.

Wham Episode
 Grant Morrison's Batman (Comic Book) / int_8e20979
comment
Wham Episode: Batman #680. Along with the Face–Heel Turn, Batman actually unmasks and reveals his secret identity to The Joker of all people. Joker doesn't seem to care about this and then starts indirectly addressing the audience. Honestly, though, The Joker probably doesn't care who's under the mask or may be just crazy enough to forget about it anyway. The Joker pretty clearly already knew - and didn't give a damn. In Arkham Asylum (also by Grant Morrison), the Joker makes it clear he doesn't care who's under the mask when the other inmates want to see Batman's real face, stating the mask is his real face. Batman #701-702: After resting for three days after his confrontation with Hurt in Batman R.I.P., Bruce finally ventures into the Room Full of Crazy hidden in Wayne Manor, with the names "Barbatos" and "Thomas" scribbled all over the walls. You think Darkseid just used the Omega Sanction on Bruce? WRONG. After hitting Bruce with the Omega Sanction Darkseid pulls out the Ancestor Box which, as the box itself puts it: "It learns! It knows! It bonds! It lives to become the fate you can't escape! Omega is death that gives and gives forever. Omega ‘tailor makes’ an unbeatable ‘life trap’ just for you. It uses 'history’ to do it!” Aside from learning about the most important elements from RIP and Doctor Hurt, Bruce's narrative from RIP came from the beginning of BTROBW. Three consecutively in the New 52's Batman Inc. #6 - Knight gets his neck snapped by Talia's Elite Mook The Heretic, and Batman is captured by Leviathan. Building upon the former point there, Batman Inc. #7 reveals the Heretic is actually Damian's clone, shown at the end of Batman and Robin #12. #8 - The Heretic brutally murders Damian on Talia's orders, although lately is revealed that she didn't order Damian's death. It was the impulse of her large, unstable Damian clone and her Leviathan goons.

His run excludes a portion of Batman's supporting cast (particularly Oracle, Huntress, the police other than Gordon) as well as most of his rogues gallery (with the main exceptions being The Joker and Talia, as well as brief appearances by Harley and Langstrom) in favor of new characters as well as the characters being brought back from obscurity. Although on the flipside, most of the characters he ignores are covered in Paul Dini's Bat-books. This is a Justified Trope in that most of the Rogues Gallery is in either Arkham or prison.

Took a Level in Badass
 Grant Morrison's Batman (Comic Book) / int_9bcd82c0
comment
Took a Level in Badass: The Batmen of All Nations. Most of them, though. The Knight and the Gaucho both qualify, given the Gaucho is considered an A-List superhero in Argentina and one of the most competent people at Mayhew's get-together. To drive this further home, the Gaucho saves Batman at one point, and Batman thanks him. The Musketeer actually retired from regular crime fighting after he wrote a book about his time in an insane asylum and made millions. The Ranger changed his name to Dark Ranger in order to keep up with the ever-changing underworld, although he points out that he did so out of necessity and doesn't come across as a typical nineties antihero. He's one of the more amicable and rational of those at the party. The Legionary let his city fall into the hands of Charlie Caligula and has let himself go badly. Instead he spends his time regaling himself on past victories when not stuffing his face or wallowing in misery. Though he does go out heroically. Wingman is the most pathetic of the bunch, given that he more resembles Batman now then did previously, and tells people that he thought of his crime fighting identity a year before Batman did. He also tries to assert his superiority over Batman in the others in a "casual" way. There's also Man-Of-Bats, who seems more down to Earth than the rest and comes to believe that, while most of the group perform heroic deeds, they're just men in costumes who were inspired by another man in costume to remake themselves. In Batman, Inc #7 we see out of costume he's a doctor on a reservation in South Dakota, but also spends most of his time in costume performing work for the community. Despite the seeming troubled relationship with his son/sidekick, Raven Red, the two genuinely love each other and whatever trouble they do have isn't as bad as when first presented. Beyond the Club of Heroes, there's also Morrison's reworking of Kathy Kane, the first Batwoman, in Batman Incorporated #4. Originally a circus stuntwoman who inherited money from a dead uncle and later becoming a token "girlfriend figure" for Batman, here, Kathy Kane (nee Web) was a stuntwoman, an underground film director, and an author before she married Nathan Kane. After he died, Kathy was approached by a representative of the spy organization called Spyral, and joined as part of an investigation into the life of Batman. Kathy legitimately fell in love with Batman and decided to quit Spyral after learning the organization was run by Otto Netz, a.k.a. Doctor Daedalus. And is possibly her birth father. Kathy is still good, only now she's become the Headmistress of Spyral/Agent Zero and has been acting as a mole in Leviathan along with her young operatives. She ends up shooting Talia in the head. Really, Damian. From the start of Batman Incorporated pre-Flashpoint to the New 52's Batman Incorporated #7, he's survived a gunshot wound to the head, did a short stint as the vigilante Redbird when he knew his mother was out for his blood, managed to keep hold of three lively pets without killing them, can imitate Bruce's voice well enough to foil Wayne Manor's vocal sensors, and can hack through most of the rest of Bats' security measures to keep him in the cave. All this from a kid who, despite his training, regularly got his ass handed to him by circus villains and Red Hood. As he states at the end of #7, "There really is no stopping me."

Foreshadowing
 Grant Morrison's Batman (Comic Book) / int_9d12bbc1
comment
Foreshadowing: The creation of Batman Inc. is foreshadowed from the beginning of the story, with Batman encountering multiple impostors to his name and wondering if there's a better way to strike terror into criminals. Much of the later "R.I.P." arc is foreshadowed with with the Joker prose story, "The Clown at Midnight," as are some elements of the Batman and Robin arc. Also in Batman 666, which introduced Professor Pyg and Flamingo long before their present-day debuts in Batman: Reborn. Also in the same issue, Damian claims he was never as good as Bruce or Dick, implying that Dick would also become Batman. Damian's description of Oberon Sexton: There's something funny about him. Additionally, there's Commissioner Gordon's introduction of him: "His face was scarred by criminals who killed his wife, which is inadvertently True From A Certain Point Of View. And Sexton's own first on-panel dialogue: "It seems we have a mutual interest in crime. Cassandra Cain's cameo in Fabian Nicieza's Red Robin #17 heavily foreshadowed her eventual involvement in Batman Inc., where Morrison made her into the Batman of Hong Kong in issue #6. There was a portrait of Mordecai Wayne in Wayne Manor during R.I.P., which was actually a portrait of an amnesiac and time-lost Bruce. The minor reveal that El Penitente is Simon Hurt is foreshadowed by his use of inverted religious motifs, just as he did with his "Anti Christ Batman" the last time out. After all, he is a former Puritan turned pseudo-devil-worshipper. Batman's description of the "ultimate villain" in Batman #674 mentions this hypothetical foe possessing "access to allies, weapons, and tactics [Batman] couldn't imagine" as well as being "[a]n adversary whose plots and grand designs were so vast, so elaborate, that they went unnoticed." While this sets up the Black Glove and Dr. Hurt, it also sounds suspiciously like a description of Darkseid, who turns out to be the Greater Scope Villain of Batman RIP and The Return of Bruce Wayne. Likewise, the devil imagery effectively sets up the Religion of Crime, as well as Darkseid's traditional role as the archfiend of the DC Universe. At the end of "Batman R.I.P.", the Joker bets against the Black Glove and on Batman, even making an argument that he fits the membership criteria for the organization and killing one of the five members to free up a slot for himself. Much later in Batman and Robin, it's revealed that the Joker, as Oberon Sexton, is essentially playing a murderous game of dominoes against Hurt from the first issue. And killing the remaining Black Glove members, making him the only person Hurt can play against. In "Batman R.I.P.," Bruce notes that he was attracted to "the bad in" Jezebel Jet much as he was in women like Catwoman and Talia; this not only sets up Talia's motivation in Batman, Incorporated, but also foreshadows the Retcon of Kathy Kane in the same series.

Doing It for the Art:invoked To hear El Sombrero say it, this is the appeal behind creating complicated deathtraps - the potential for aesthetic appreciation. Plus the fact that compared to most criminals' brilliant plans of "shoot the guy, go to a strip club, do cocaine", they often are works of art.

The later issues of Batman Inc contain a heavy stream of Take Thats at DC, the New 52, and the very concept of Status Quo Is God, finally culminating in Talia telling Batman to just go back to beating up mental patients before Kathy Kane, a character who hadn't appeared for decades, shoots her in the head.

Fate Worse than Death
 Grant Morrison's Batman (Comic Book) / int_b1346878
comment
Done more subtly and depressingly with Batman himself. Towards the end of "R.I.P." he seems exhilarated by the idea that he can confront the "ultimate evil" himself, and he openly acknowledges that he's often attracted to the evil in his more morally ambivalent or outright criminal lovers, confident in his ability to detach himself when he needs to as he does with Jezebel Jet.. After the Fate Worse than Death he escapes in battle with Darkseid and the horrifying personal and general Collateral Damage from his conflict with Talia, who sets out to be the ultimate villain specifically to win his affections, as well as learning the Awful Truth about his previous romantic partnerKathy Kane, he seems to be more sadly resigned to his endless battle with evil and troubked by his romantic interest in "bad girls" by the end of Batman, Incorporated.

Take That!

comment
"The Three Ghosts of Batman" and "RIP" seem to be a concerted Take That! and deconstruction of the dominant Frank Miller-inspired interpretation of Batman as just as mad as his enemies, and Bruce Wayne as a mask. Both stories show what a "Batman" without the compassion, determination and restraint of Bruce Wayne would be like, and it's reminiscent of All-Star Batman & Robin, the Boy Wonder.

Came Back Wrong: A serious case by the looks of it. According to Superman, if Bruce returns to the 21st century on his own, Everybody Dies. Although Superman was not exactly at his brightest during Bruce's absence and completely failed to consider that the Goddamn Batman might know what he was doing. Even after Bruce said "Trust me", Superman's reaction was to try to smash the time sphere being constructed around him and the other heroes.

Shout-Out
 Grant Morrison's Batman (Comic Book) / int_c75df49a
comment
Shout-Out: A rather cruel use of the trope - Near the end of "The Revenge of the Red Hood", Jason Todd finds himself shot, unmasked, beaten and at the total mercy of a gaudily dressed psychopath. Said psycho has a LOVELLLLLLYYYYY smile by the way... Morrison has stated that he intended to leave as many Joker shout-outs in Batman and Robin as he could without being too obvious. At the end of the Pyg arc, Batman and Gordon meet to arrest the gang and Gordon states he wishes he could burn the circus base down to the ground. That's when you realize that the base Pyg used was the Joker Circus from The Killing Joke. Scorpiana's distinctive fluted stinger-helmet might just be a coincidence, or might not. Chris Sims, writer for Comics Alliance, host of War Rocket Ajax and "the world's foremost Batmanologist", makes an appearance in Batman Inc. #6 — as a rotting corpse being eaten by Gotham City seagulls. Congrats Chris! The Swagman's armour is very clearly modelled on that of Ned Kelly. In Batman Inc. (vol. 2) #11, a Japanese villainess refers to a schoolgirl as "Sailor Pizza Face". Batman Japan's post-New 52 costume was explicitly inspired by that of the original Kamen Rider, according to the artist.

Unspoken Plan Guarantee: Made really obvious in Batman, Inc #6, in which Batman briefs his various allies on what's going on, but all the reader gets are the bits where he says "Listen carefully, I will say this only once..." or "... and now you know as much as I do", without any of the good stuff in between. Not to mention the bit where Batman and an ally are going over a plan that relies on nobody knowing the ally's identity — including, apparently, the readers.

comment
Hypocrite: In the final issue of Batman: Incorporated, Talia al'Ghul sneers that Batman is a "pompous, posturing bastard". While a fair criticism, no one from the House of al'Ghul — Talia included — has much room to be criticising others on any of those counts.

 Grant Morrison's Batman (Comic Book) / int_d7c3ba61
comment
Race Lift: There is a trio of obscure female Batman villains from back in the 1960's named Tiger Moth, Silken Spider, and Dragon Fly. In their first (and for several decades, ONLY) appearance, all three women were white. When they finally reappeared 40 years later during The Resurrection of Ra's Al Ghul storyline, Silken Spider was now shown to be black, while Dragon Fly was Asian-American.

comment
Arc Welding: A particularly epic example, as everything from the origin of Vandal Savage to various wacky 1960s adventures are tied together as the work of Darkseid's Hyper-Adaptor and its eventual host, Simon Hurt/Thomas Wayne. Several ideas from Morrison's JLA run also make a return here, such as his interpretation of the fifth dimension and the Arc Words of "Batman and Robin will never die!" being from there as well.

Continuity Snarl
 Grant Morrison's Batman (Comic Book) / int_df582b0b
comment
Continuity Snarl: All of which seem to stem from Morrison's apparent uncertainty of whether or not his run has connections to the wider DC Universe. In Blackest Night, Bruce Wayne's skull is dug up and transformed into a Black Lantern to invoke an emotional response in all of Batman's allies while Dick Grayson is busy attempting to ward off all the undead villains that are attacking Gotham. Meanwhile, in Morrison's run, the Blackest Night is apparently not happening in Gotham or in London as Grayson had transported Wayne's body (which is kept under Wayne Tower as opposed to the unmarked grave Blackest Night claims it is buried in) to the latter in an attempt to resurrect Batman using a Lazarus Pit. There's a throwaway Continuity Nod in which Batwoman expresses dismay that Grayson is "talking about raising the dead...after what the whole world's just been through." This still doesn't explain the Batman skull from the Blackest Knight tie-in miniseries, though and there are some complications with Damian being temporarily paralyzed in Morrison's series and running around with Batman in the Blackest Night tie-in. Batman #700, "Time and the Batman" features Chief O'Hara alongside Commissioner Gordon when they come to the aid of Batman, Robin, and Professor Nichols. The problem? Post-Crisis, the death of Chief O'Hara kicked off the events of Dark Victory, his death being a full year before Dick became Robin.

The Epic: A massive storyline that spans across the globe and across time; starting from the Dawn of Man to the heat death of the universe. And if we were to completely count all of Final Crisis, the story also spans the entire multiverse. Meta-wise, it grows in scale by incorporating all of Batman's history.

Reconstruction: A common theme of Morrison's. This is essentially meant to show that all of the goofier stuff (such as Silver Age stories and plot devices) can still be awesome if done right, and that Batman can be cool and entertaining even if he isn't a brooding grimdark Anti-Hero.

Continuity Lockout: The run is famous for liberally referencing the wackiness of The Silver Age of Comic Books; however, many of those comics have fallen into obscurity over the years.

Canon Immigrant: Terry McGinnis, at least in a 'future' continuity of New Earth that may never be. Zig-Zagged with Lord Death Man, a villain from Japan in Batman, Inc. While he is identified with the earlier villain "Death Man," he's far more closely based on the version who appeared in the 1960s licensed Batman manga, but had become a Breakout Villain in the US fandom when selections of the manga were translated into English and published in the US in 2008. At the end of the second issue, after Jiro has become Batman Japan, we also see Professor Gorilla, another one of the original villains from the manga. (Who was also loosely based on a one-off villain from an earlier American comic.)

Brick Joke: Odd, reverse example - Dick occassionally complains how difficult crime fighting with a cape is. Guess what article of the original Batsuit Damian didn't include in the previously published 666th Batman issue? A more straightforward example where Batman Incorporated: Leviathan Strikes! #1 has Knight and Squire asking Batman about a rumor that he had a shrink ray. Later, Batman Japan tells Batman about a fellow superhero he has a crush on who is only a few inches tall...and asks for the shrink ray.
