All you need to know about the Batman of Zur-En-Arrh is that writer Grant Morrison made Batman into a lunatic hobo-clown guided by a spirit animal who looks like a thalidomide baby. Instead of sorely offending geeks to the point that we won't even acknowledge that bats are real animals, he penned one of the best stories Batman's ever face-stomped his way through.
There are only two possible explanations: Grant Morrison is even crazier than Batman, which we've already established is like being wetter than water ...
... OR BATMAN NEVER LOSES, and Morrison is a genius who had faith in that. He chucked Bats into the most humiliating situation possible, and the Caped Crusader found a way out of it that made him stronger. That's Batman's superpower. If you ever manage to wound the Bat, he'll bleed into your eyes and poison you, because no one shares Bruce Wayne's blood type of Vengeance-positive.
What This Means for the Movie:
Crazy cannot be defeated, it can only be diverted.
Bane has a plan to upheave Gotham. But you know who else had plans? The Waynes, Ra's Al Ghul and Harvey Dent. All of those people are dead now. You know who didn't make plans? The Joker, because he was crazy. And he survived.
It is lunacy, my friends, that settles the day in Gotham City. Sure, Bane is brilliant and powerful, but he made one mistake: He brought logic to a crazy-fight.
What was his plan if there wasn't a Moon Scorpion handy?
That's not to say Batman doesn't take charge of every situation, but he's more about the tactics than the strategy. That's why the controller configuration for Batman: Arkham City boiled down to "Break that guy's bones" and "Don't break that guy's bones yet." The only talent necessary to become Batman is to determine whether a thug needs pain, and the criterion for that is "Is he standing where Batman can see him?"
Why, he breaks his own spine for fun on weekends!
As we've established, Gotham is where plans go to die (and get stitched back together in hideous mockeries of their aspirations). That's why some people say the Joker's a perfect foil for Batman -- he's the embodiment of chaos. This view overlooks the fact that Batman is, too.
