* SuperheroParadox: [[http://archiveofourown.org/works/5241824/chapters/14680672 Chapter 12]] has one of the better examinations out there; heroes draw villains, but Batman deliberately keeps things low-key to keep the city-smashers out of his city. As a mere human, he poses no apparent challenge to world-class threats, so while the tourists avoid Gotham, the businesses flock there because their buildings are unlikely to get knocked down. Wonder Woman shows up after Batman was hospitalized by Sasuke, and Cheetah shows up within the week. SupermanStaysOutOfGotham because Batman asks nicely.
-->'''Batman''': ''Meta-criminals have no interest in Gotham. Gangsters do, because it is the only place most feel they have a chance. But so do businesses, research centers, and new families. While Metropolis’ tourism business has been booming, Gotham’s industry and population have been growing at unprecedented rates. Most people would rather live in a city where the buildings stay standing.''
** OTOH, Batman sees something he can't ignore after Wonder Woman shows up; people stop HoldingOutForAHero. The bright, shiny heroes ''[[IdealHero inspire]]'' people to resist their situations.
--->'''Batman''': ''The gangs, cartels, and mobs have been falling apart. Members are leaving, children on the streets no longer flock to the nearest racket boss. And there’s more. The people in Gotham have started to stand up against the criminals. Just small reports, mind you—an officer who refused to cooperate, a clerk who tackled a gunman—but it’s something I’d never thought to see.''
