I haven't watched Batman "89" in ages. I didn't realize when I watched it at 9 years old in the cinema, but now I agree with some of the bad things that people say about it:

- Commissioner Gordon's lack of importance: I agree with this. Tim Burton not reading comics as a child because "he didn't know what panel he should read next" was probably a main cause for it.
- Sleeping with Vicky Vale too fast: I agree with this. Batman is normally more cautious.
- Michael Keaton being too short and thin: I agree with this. A good actor that the director already knew, but I'm sure other choice would have been better. Christian Bale is an example of a better choice.
- The bulletproof thing: I kind of disagree. It's another version of Batman where he uses other techniques to avoid being killed. More realistic than avoiding all bullets, probably. Was not an issue for me as a child.
- Batman killing people: I agree that this is not OK, even if I didn't know about it in 1989.
- The Joker killing Bruce's parents: I disagree with this being an issue. The change made the story more interesting.
- The Joker being "a different character in each scene": I disagree with this being a problem. It's more fun this way, right?
- Bruce Wayne being too selfish: I probably disagree with this, assuming Bruce is only using that personality as a shield so that people think he doesn't care about crime and moral.
The Batman 89 2021 comic is weird not only because Michael Keaton's face is terribly drawn, but because it does things like introducing a new hero in issue #1. They should have made a Batman 70 (based in the comics) instead.
