Since the New 52 started, it seems that DC has been making an effort to connect Batman villains to Bruce Wayne. So far, we've seen that both Mr. Freeze and Poison Ivy worked for Bruce before taking on their villainous personas. And the Riddler (from what I hear) also had some connections to Wayne Enterprises in Zero Year before Bruce took over.
So my question is whether or not this was necessary. Do we need to see villains more connected to Bruce? It honestly doesn't make too great a difference to me. But I'd be lying if I said that there wasn't something about the changes that doesn't sit right with me. Perhaps its because seeing the villains have a vendetta against Bruce isn't something that I'm interested in. Or perhaps I just feel that it was an unnecessary change.
But I would like to see others' opinions. Perhaps I'm the minority here and other people really like the effort to connect Batman's villains to his Bruce Wayne persona.
