How do you feel about the BATMAN ?
He's... I...

A riddle ?

Riddle time again ! RIDDLE-ME-HEHEHOOHOO !

When is a man a city ?

Er...
When it's Batman.
 

Or when it's Gotham, I'd take either answer.

Batman IS this city, understand that. You HAVE to understand that.

That's why we're here. That's why we STAY.

We're trying to survive in the city. It's HUGE and contradictory and DARK and funny and threatening. It's sordid and bright, romantic and violent, depressing and eccentric. Sometimes it's good, sometimes it's bad. But it's ours.

And it does raise so many QUESTIONS. Why the darkness ? Why the pain ? Why did he leave a couple of roses in that alley that night ? Does it really matter ? Why not keep the mystery ?
