Re: Stuff you like to believe happened in Nolan's series
I like to believe that jakinj's webcomics happened, and that Batman made 9 covert appearances to stop major crime during his absence before he couldn't carry on any further. The "new Batman" isn't required to act very often though, but still gets advice from Bruce from time-to-time.
"But that's the thing about Batman. Batman thinks of everything."
