Re: In hindsight what changes would you do
For the record, I don't think TDK Returns Batman wanted to die either. Musing on something grim doesn't mean you desire it. Clearly his desire is to protect Gotham and stop injustice, and since that is in direct conflict with him dying, it demonstrably overrides any kind of death wish one might accuse him of having. If the desire is there, it is by far secondary to his will to survive and fight.
"My city needs me."
Why do we fall?
