    Actually, I think he stopped using the gun around the time Robin debuted, which was 1940 (a year after him).

    By my count bruce was in his mid fifties when he stopped being bats and i was like most of you all said due his realisation that he had grown to old .

    know how smart Bruce was i wouldnt be surprised if he had know what amanda was up to.On a side note did it seem weird the way Amanda talked about batmans almost like she had feelings for him or am i reading to much into it.

    I don't think it was anything romantic or lustful. More like she had spent her life trying to protect the world (although in ways that most people thought were just as bad as what she was trying to protect it from) and looking back on her life and his has a great admiration for his accomplishments and dedication.

    Hardly...she rigged the whole thing together...the only coincidence was that his dad died anyways, by the Jokers, and if you read into it, it wasnt much of a coincidence. (Im guessing that she chose someone with a potentially dangerous job as a contingency, or way to get out of killing if possible)
