I agree. In addition, I think the general audience took the release dates of BB and TDK as bookending the main period of Batman’s activity. That’s three years - plenty of time to establish a reputation, a legacy and the legend. Even if (as some analytical fans have concluded) it was only a year, it might be assumed that the enigmatic Batman was making his presence known (and making the newspapers) at least once a week during this period. That’s over 50 appearances - again, enough to create a legendary status. And this doesn’t include the speculation and rumors that would have percolated during the mysterious 8-year exile; nor does it include Batman’s dramatic reappearance and martyrdom. Sounds like enough stuff to make an indelible impact - and a notable career.

But if your objection is that the accumulated Batman time wasn’t sufficient, killing him off wouldn’t fix that.
