Why would you take off motorcycle helmet before getting into a fight? Their visors are wide enough so you don't lose any real peripheral vision, and a helmet good enough for a motorcycle is also good for protecting your most vulnerable body part, that also happens to be targetted the most.
I think that there is a TV Tropes entry for heroes never wearing helmets. (I was reminded only the other night, watching the Punisher TV series.) Helmets are a wonderful invention for everyone except artists and lead actors.
Which was what makes Hugo Weaving & Karl Urban some great actors imo. Put on a mask for a movie that required the mask the whole time for the character they were playing :)

Ahhh, but you forget, helmets also makes great weapon, which it wouldn't be one if it's being worn. Notice in the third/fifth panel how her hand is behind the wall? Holding the helmet... to whack this guy with.
Not that I'd want to be headbutted by Cammi in a helmet...

“Batman Dark”? Really? Just because the lights are down?

“Dark” is if somebody kills somebody or reveals childhood trauma or sonething. This is just a comedy change-of-pace “BOO!” scene.
I was exaggerating. You got me. It still wouldn't be out of place in the start of a superhero comic, what with faces-cast-in-shadow, Aaina's Spider-Man-esque pose and this guy running into a dark alleyway to get away from the heroes. You could make a drinking game out of all the times something like this has happened in a superhero comic or superhero comic adaptation and especially those of Batman.

Yes, such a trope exists. Here it is.
No it isn’t. Here it is.

Proofread, old chum. Proofread.
Grumble grumble. That's literally never happened before on this forum, so apparently my browser just wanted to troll me today. Got almost the entire web address correct but one little bit at the start is missing and it gets all mucked up. Fixed it, but still really annoying. Grumble grumble.

Thanks for pointing it out, though.

Aaina's pose also reminds me of Spawn.
