Re: Next Batman Villain?
Yes, it is carried from the comics, namely his first appearance where he clearly states when and where he is gonna kill somebody, because he already set up how is he gonna murder them, as if they were already dead. In the movie he only fails with Harvey Dent, but he makes up for it, killing Patrick Harvey and Richard Dent.
A hero can be anyone. Even a man doing something as simple and reassuring as putting a coat around a young boy's shoulders to let him know that the world hadn't ended.
