Re: Someone please explain why....
Because people, and societies, slide over time. Gotham wasn't always a cesspool - it became one after years of deterioration.
The symbol of the Batman, of the people of Gotham, needs to be present in people's minds, continuing to inspire them. Otherwise, it will be forgotten and, over time, Gotham will eventually slip back into corruption and decay.
The fight for justice can never be definitively WON forever, but as long as there are men willing to stand up and keep fighting forever, then it's also never LOST.
Only one site has Batman news that they secretly knew all along but kept secret from you for your sake until someone else reported it!
The ORIGINAL Batman movie news site!
