Batman the animated series was a masterpiece and I’m glad that Justice League Unlimited expanded the DC Universe. Hell, it even expanded Batman’s character. At the end of the day, he’s just a guy that doesn’t want anyone to die. The scene above was the most real moment of that series. It’s agonizingly touching and the-powers-that-be didn’t overdue it, something cartoons aren’t typical known for.
This is why the “Bruce Timm” Batman—-the “Kevin Conroy” Batman is the greatest of all time. He wore all the hats and interpreted the emotional spectrum like a boss… Occasionally, he was allowed to do some sweet shit.
