Joker gets away in the copter. Batman and Vicki still fall, and Bats stops the fall and tosses her into a window before the line breaks. He falls, and is crippled. cut to Wayne Manor. Batman is paralyzed, and puttering around in a floating wheelchair, just like Xavier has in the comics, except its all black and nearly encases her entire body. He always has his cowl on, and he's insanely bitter about the turn of events. The last shot of the movie is him glaring out a huge window, with the camera pulling back as lightning constantly flashes in the background. OK, its not really a better ending, but I've been having some bizarre dreams lately. I don't know what brought this one on.
