I wasn't talking to you directly, but when I keep seeing people bring up points of Batman's retirement, and laying claims that since it was in TDKReturns, that it is somehow "faithful" to the cannon, when clearly, that shouldn't be the case at all.

And I thought that's what this thread was about: being "faithful"? Elseworld tales are a lot of fun to read, but I wouldn't consider the majority of them to be "faithful". That's the point to those stories.....
