There've been cases of the heroic male "redeeming" the bad female. Catwoman being one, obviously.
It's creepy because he dated her grandmother.

That's not the same dynamic at all because Batman himself is dark, obsessive and vengeful, not a good guy saving a bad girl.

And the idea of Sharon taking the lead in a relationship with Steve instead of vice versa is very 21st century and empowering, and creates some obvious awkwardness for old-fashioned Steve that audiences would love and find endearing.
It's the granddaughter of the woman he loved, that is creepy no matter how you slice it.

Her taking the lead of her Gran's man doesn't change anything.
