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.
"I defeated your uncle Victarion and his Iron Fleet off Fair Isle, the first time your father crowned himself. I held Storm's End against the power of the Reach for a year, and took Dragonstone from the Targaryens. I smashed Mance Rayder at the Wall, though he had twenty times my numbers. Tell me, turncloak, what battles has the Bastard of Bolton ever won that I should fear him?" - Stannis Baratheon
