And that is why I am here today with a proposition: of all the decades of Batman stories in a huge variety of media, there is only one that will forever be tied to the character.

Fans have claimed that Miller has lost his mindhe has certainly revealed that his overblown politics in Dark Knight Returns were not a parody, but his belief that heroic fascism is the answer to our current political problems.
