How is that "realistic"?

The Punisher is the most realistic vigilante.

to be fair, i'm of the belief that no single vigilante would be successful for too long.

I would imagine them setting up some sort of underground vigilante cell with approximately 50-250 dormant cells who could be activated at any time. In a sense any powerless vigilante scheme would have to be run like a bizzarro terrorist group.

a batman figure COULD be the head of this organization but his role would very much be centric to the batcave as the eyes and ears of the entire thing. I imagine it being like batman beyond with 50 odd terrys

but as you up the numbers, you up the costs and lower the chances of anonymity.

the real problem in batman comics (and in most comics) is you have very limited exposure to how the media and the everyday public view them, it's incredibly simplistic and all you have to do is pick up a newspaper to see our world just doesn't operate like that.
