Re: The mob - make it more intimidating
I personally wouldn't want to see another Year One Frank Miller , Batman vs Mob style story again. We've had it done in B89, BB, TDK, BMOTP, and BY1. I could see a Black Mask or Penguin story as has been suggusted but using the Mob or a crime family as a main thread or focus again, really isn't all that appealing to me.
I think that a new francise should try strive for something new or tell the story from a different perspective instead of going back to the Frank Miller well again, or trying to rehash story points that have been covered before.
