It is a bit sad, but that's the thing with Batman. Most of everything is sad. I've never heard of any bad ending in Superman comics or some other such comic. Well, let me rephrase that. I've never heard of anything grey in continuities like the Superman world. Everything I've heard about is clearly set apart in good and evil, while in Batman, you can't just say "Well, they hate Batman, that's what's wrong with them."
But yes, it is rather sad.
