perhaps batman's poor knee was karma for Batman screwing up Sal Maroni's legs. Who was the head of the mob but in actuality was the biggest mob informant for the FBI, getting to keep his throne by ratting out his closest associates, placed there by God himself. The only way Batman could redeem himself was to put the cowl back on and be a Superhero, explaining the magical healing of his knee. His redemption was complete, tying in to the broader redemption of his overall arc.
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.
