Batman: The Dark Knight Returns

I’m sure all you real Batman fans saw the Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice teaser trailer recently.  You may be saying “Why are Batman and Superman fighting?”  or “Why is Batman (or Batfleck) wearing that armor?”  Many of us recognize that at least some inspiration for this movie must come from the 1986 Frank Miller story Batman the Dark Knight Returns.   

The 4 issue miniseries was set in a possible future (In the pre-New 52 continuity, this story was set on Earth 31).  The story begins with a now 55 year old Bruce Wayne, now retired from crime fighting for 10 years.
