Arkham Oranges - Justice is Blind as a Bat by TheGouldenWay Arkham Oranges - Justice is Blind as a Bat by TheGouldenWay
This is a common superhero mentality that just about EVERYONE who I've watched a superhero movie with has pointed out to me.  Superman can throw his enemies through ten buildings, knocking each one over onto a couple blocks of smaller buildings, but the moment he sees ONE person dangling off a roof, that suddenly becomes the most important thing.  Oh well.  It's superheroes!  Collateral damage be damned!

Gotham City News: "Are your loved ones truly protected from a costumed caper whose methods hurt more than the criminals he targets? Your cause for worry may not be unfounded, but perhaps you aren't worried enough. A new Gotham has vigilante appeared, a la Batman, under the name 'Collateral Carmine', and judging from his methods, police speculate that the two may get along just fine if they haven't met already."

Actualy as i remember in 90-s cartoon Batman had  a habit of hanging people too... but was doing it properly - after he tied criminals he'll leave them hanging on nearest lamp post but in normal way not upside down and always on safe height. Actually if you think about it there were more thought about consequences of his actions in this old cartoon then anywhere else Oo

Huh.  That's interesting.  You can see more recent media taking him farther from his human detective roots and placing emphasis on the "superhero" aspect with more action at the cost of realism.

I've seen this a few times and I still don't get the significance of the guy who went out to procure supplies for emergency surgery on his wife. I mean, in-game there are no civilians, only criminals. So... I dungettit, surry sah

Still laughed at the comic as a whole. So true. And the game even brings this up like, every five minutes!

Yeah, sorry about the vague-ivity-ness of the doctor thing.  The idea is that, although civilians are supposed to be indoors, he went out to get supplies.  This included a knife, and when Batman showed up and saw him holding a knife, his Bat-Vision (or whatever) registered him as a threat.  He's the guy you run up and punch before he even knows your there, so this comic is satirizing the idea that just one of those guys might not necessarily have been evil.  Thanks for the feedback!  I strive for clarity, so it's good to know if I screw up.

Still, the only people in the game either A) stand around chatting, or B) patrol an area on a set path. That's why it's not readily clear, but I do get what you were going for now.

This is awesome!!

And yeah, Bruce's habit of hanging people off buildings and leaving them there for the cops to pick up has always bugged me. It's just not possible that NONE of the crooks he left dangling like a Christmas ornament ever fell to the ground, slammed into the building wall, or had a deadly brain hemorrhage. The fact that he can do that to common thugs but can't bring himself to put a bullet in the Joker's face is just weird. LOL

No kidding.  Superman even says that he only sees what he wants to see.  That's, like, the epitome of this trope.

Yeah, and especially in the latest movie.  I'm supposed to believe that he struggled killing Zod?  There's no way that people didn't die in his fight with Zod.  I laughed in the theater when after the fight, people started poking their heads out of rubble and behind cars as if to say, "Hey, we're ok!  I know that we should have died in the carnage, but here is a shot establishing that even though buildings were toppling to the ground, Superman never killed us.  It was either Zod killing us or we lived."  :)

This is why Batman is my favorite Disney princess.
