But gradually, Miller's bitter aged Batman became the standard characterisation (although I do think that's lightened a bit in the last few years).
Yeah, I've gathered that Batman's been going in that direction lately, or at least that some (Morrison?) have tried to take him in that direction.
A more upbeat Batman? You mean like in the 60s TV show?
That's one extreme, the Milleresque psycho is the other extreme. Batman has more generally existed in the middle ground between those.
