Batman may be known as one of the greatest superheroes of the DC multiverse, but over his decades of crime fighting the vigilante has strayed the line on several occasions - crossing from one of the World's Finest to an all-star jerk.
Sometimes the original Dark Knight isn't directly to blame, with his successors twisting the bat-mantle into something even darker, usually with devastating results. Though, even if Bruce wasn't the direct cause of his successors' actions, he often has a hand in leading them down that path - and that's on top of the villainous acts he has committed personally.
To be fair to Wayne, us readers should have probably seen a lot more of these coming - seeing as the character is, in the simplest terms, a deranged billionaire that dresses up as a bat to punch crime with his child soldiers. Sure, there's a little more nuance to it than that, but that nuance doesn't exactly stop such a set-up from seeming far more evil than heroic.
So, without further ado, let's set about ruining the image of a character that was probably your childhood hero!
