I liked Loeb's run, but, I had some problems with his characterization of Batman. There's a part in Batman #612, where Bats says something like, "Superman is essentially a good person, and, deep down, I am not." That's just not how I see Batman (never will), and I very much doubt he would see himself that way. I understand that he's not as altruistic as his Kryptonian ally, but Batman, in my eyes, is still a good man at heart.

"He (Batman) is perhaps the only genuine hero amongst them. The trauma of his parents' death is what motivates him and forces him to go on, but what makes him Batman is a decision. He took a decision to be a good guy, which is a decision in life not too many people make. He is a self-made character. He didn't get superpowers, he's not a cyborg, he made a choice to be what he is."
