Batman is undoubtedly a task master when it comes to giving out orders and expecting results. What can you expect, he's the world's greatest detective and the Dark Knight. But just as he can go too far in punishing criminals, how often does his style cross the line with his own proteges?

considering the cost if the Robins don't live up to it (Jason Todd and Stephany Brown). I think his harshness is necessary.

Agreed. Look how well Dick and Tim turned out.

@Crom-Cruach:
Maybe it wasn't his approach, but their own limitations that made them fail. Maybe the pressure was too great. Could he have approached Jason and Stephanie differently, perhaps?

Who knows? Bruce is human, despite what his fanboys might lead us to believe. He makes mistakes, and he can be arrogant at times. Once he comes back, he'll have chance to start over with Stephanie being as she is the new batgirl. As for Jason, unfortunately, his place is in a padded prison cell.

He's not too harsh toward his protegés; he looks at them like his children. 
 
Miller's Batman is a psycho though, that version is an abusive nutjob toward Dick.

What do you expect, after Dark Knight returns, Miller began a slow descent into insanity that eventually led to the awful Dark Knight strikes again.

I know. I have a soft spot for that book because my parents bought it for me to cheer me up, (they just scanned for any Batman graphic novel I didn't have lol), but it's really not a good story. 
 
Miller is just exploitative and, like you said, insane in his writing now, to the point of it being ridiculous. I think Mark Millar is heading down a similar path with his Icon work.

What are you talking about? Didn't you know that women are all over-sexualised and insatiable creatures that want to sleep with psychotic vigilantes?

@Crom-Cruach: Something I could never understand, what's with his obsession for the term "Nuke"? Robocop 2 and Born Again (which I love) both use the term quite a lot.

@FadeToBlackBolt: some handicap in the lower section perhaps? Also the source of his growing insanity?
