First you said there was no implication that Gotham was corrupt from that line. Now that I've clarified why I would read into such a specifically chosen word for that line (a word that has connotations of judgement and vengeance for past offenses, which, in conjunction with him spouting off about fulfilling Ra's' destiny at multiple times in the film brings further support to this line of interpretation), you tell me I'm just extrapolating.

I'd like to know, what is your interpretation of that line? Why would Bane be Gotham's reckoning instead of simply its conqueror or destroyer?
