  1. I thought the idea of Batman using a drug to “enhance” himself didn’t feel true to who he was. I could see him taking a tried and tested treatment that extends life (because he wouldn’t feel his job is done), I could see him enhancing himself through technology, both terrestrial and alien, maybe even use magic if he really had to. But using an enhancement drug… To me, it just didn’t feel like Batman.
