[[folder: Why is Gotham a Hotspot for criminals?]]
* Although my question might sound weird to those who are well read on the story, but for a person who has only seen the animated cartoons, this has always been in my head.
Why is Gotham soooo corruption heavy when there's the Batman there to scare them away? Even when a supervillain comes and claim their turf, Batman can always call the Justice League when the trouble escalates.
Shouldn't they move to a place where there are no costumed heroes? I mean I'm sure there are illegal activities underground but wouldn't it dwindle once its members keep getting threatened, since the police has a costumed vigilante on their side?

** I think I just get now why Alfred got a special British force record added to his background, he was Batman's first mentor.

*** That seems a bit unfair to this troper. I'm not the OP, but perhaps the question may have arisen less from Draco in Leather Pants and more from serious, genuine curiosity. From what I understand, the legal system can be quite confusing, and it can be difficult even for those involved in it to identify and judge specific crimes, especially with all the [[ArtisticLicenseLaw Inaccuracies in media]] that writers tend to have. So while it's obvious that Scarecrow is breaking the law, I can comprehend someone Being confused what specific crimes he's committing.

** Batman doesn't like other heroes meddling with his business plus Joker is even more dangerous if you remind him of his past since he goes ballistic.

** Because unless he steals weapon routinely that doesn't make much sense. How can a soldier can maintain a car and a jet like that without funds and how come the gadgets look like some of Wayne Tech's prototype? Plus the playboy millionaire is surprisingly recluse and invest in gargoyles all over Gotham.

** There's probably some people who might think such, but none of that would matter if Bruce gets ''caught''. Nobody's going to say, "It can't be Bruce Wayne!" if someone catches Bruce Wayne in costume acting as Batman.

* Why are some fans worried about Bruce getting caught? In universe and real life, can you really see a playboy millionaire risking his life to save the little people? The idea would seem absurd, right? Wouldn't you think a discharged US soldier is using stolen military tech to help people? How do they know this soldier didn't steal weapons and tech from the army and customized them to make them bat-theme? For all they know, this soldier could have stepped in a bat cave during a rescue mission and got the idea to create a bat persona.
