A HUMBLED GOTHAM — Things have never been easy for Batman, despite his billions of dollars. He lost his parents at a young age, he lost the only woman he loved, and he even lost his mansion (which had been in the Wayne family for generations) when it was burned to the ground. To cap it off, he had his back broken by Bane. But out of all the loss, pain and heartache, I think this surprise attack by Spider-Man hurt more than all the others combined.
The Dark Knight was out playing some moody music on his ukulele. The man may not be on key, but it's about the emotion of what he's singing and not how well it's done. He's putting his heart into it as he belts out the beautifully written lines, "Batman ... Batman ... Batman." You can feel his pain through his lyrics.
Then it happens. The worst attack the Caped Crusader has ever experienced. The Joker has never been as cavalier and merciless as this. Spider-Man takes things to a whole new level.

Another superhero who lost his parents, his beloved uncle and his girlfriend has decided to not be quite as moody, but just as ferocious as Batman — if not more so.
Right in the middle of the world's greatest detective's ballad, the web slinger rides in, literally, and shows up the Batman. Spidey is riding a unicycle while playing his theme song on the bagpipes. He's wearing a face-covering mask, people, and he's playing the bagpipes! If that isn't enough, he then shoots fire from the bagpipes. Batman doesn't know what to do: all he can do is just sit there and watch in awe with everyone else. Then, to add insult to injury, the wall crawler shoots his webs at Batman and hits him right in the face. The ever-stoic Batman snaps — and can't help but scream, "Come on!"
Spider-Man then rides off into the sunset and Batman is left questioning his entire existence after receiving the beating of his life from a bagpipe playing, unicycle riding, fire spouting web slinger.
