Re: Favourite Ra's al Ghul in the media
He was someone the League could keep a leash on. Scarecrow was, thematically, meant to be an anti-climax. That's why he was played up as big and menacing. He did get the jump on Bats, though.
I liked BB Ra's. The vigilante-ninja master angle was more interesting than the eco terrorist of the comics and cartoon.
