I fail to see how I don't have a point. Nothing that I said there was untrue.

Neither Batman '89 nor Batman Returns were origin stories. Batman Begins was nothing BUT an origin story.
Neither was Spider-Man 2 an origin story, but it still addressed a lot of Peter's personal demons about being Spider-Man. Even re-visited his guilt over Uncle Ben's death again.

It doesn't have to be an origin story to explore the hero. Burton just made the conscious choice not to.
