And I'm sure that Bruce's parents, if they were alive, would never want Batman for Bruce. They wouldn't be disappointed in him for doing his best and moving on for his own good. That's why I thought Bruce bequeathing Wayne Manor for orphans was such great closure - that's what his parents would want their memory to be. Not Batman. Not for their only son.
So are you saying Bruce was right or wrong for leaving the equipment to Blake? Blake clearly eschewed the path of working within the system, we see that in his scene of throwing away his badge and in his scene with Gordon at the end. Unless Blake is going to be just sitting in the batcave and not trying to be the symbol Bruce was, he is likely going to cause and destruction as the first Batman did
