Batman elects to style his iconography on a creature that is deemed dirty, ugly, and capable of inciting hateful emotions on anybody who gazes upon it. Batman then goes out exclusively at night and beats the holy hell out of (mostly poor and impoverished) criminals while never showing his face to the light. It is perfectly logical why Batman would be met with at best ambivalence, at worst hate and distrust.

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.
