I take it you don't like The Dark Knight Returns having a crippled Bruce Wayne who slaps on some mechanical bits to his arms and knees and is as good as new?
He was monologue-ing through the entire comic about how decrepit and debilitating his body was and cursing how much better the young cops had it. It wasn't tossed aside instantly like TDKR's knee injury was.

Alan Moore on comics:

They've lost a lot of their original innocence, and they can't get that back. And, they're stuck, it seems, in this kind of depressive ghetto of grimness and psychosis. I'm not too proud of being the author of that regrettable trend.
