*** [[TheShawshankRedemption Every prison has a guy who knows how to "get things".]] I think Arkham's is either [[ComicBook/ArkhamAsylumLivingHell Great White Shark or Junkyard Dog]], right?

*** Actually, the reason is that Batman thinks that killing the Joker is "too damned easy" and if he killed him he might not be able to stop. Do remember that while SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker is the worst of these monsters, the majority of them are still bad enough in their own right and still murder plenty of random people themselves, so if he is willing to kill the Joker he doesn't really have much excuse to not kill, say, the Scarecrow, the Riddler, or Ras Al-Ghul (''especially'' Ra's Al-Ghul, even- thatís probably even easier to justify than killing the Joker). The above is somewhat true, but this is the deeper reason- his own deep-seated fear that he is NotSoDifferent from the lunatics he battles every night. And if Batman jumped off the slippery slope, nobody could stop him- after all, he's Batman.

** Also, it's probably just WayneTech stock lenses from an experimental night-vision cowl or something. It probably came like that.

*** So Batman spontaneously heals after every fight, and the amount of health he recovers is dependent on the number of enemies you fought. Isn't this basically identical to the LifeDrain mechanic found in other games? It's as if you're playing as some sort of vampire...bat...man.

* It doesn't even make sense for the Riddler to accuse Batman of looking up answers on the internet. All his challenges are custom-made, so nobody would know anything about them to be able to put that information online. The only internet that could be of help to Batman is the one that exists beyond the fourth wall.

*** Just to put a real-world example on the table: Modern stealth technology (the B-2 and F-117) are more concerned with reducing radar and infrared signature, not reducing noise. Even though they're subsonic, the idea is that by the time you can hear it, you're about to be VERY dead. I can't find any information on how many decibels the B-2 and F-117 produce, and it's probably classified information anyway; but at a distance of 100 feet, the engines of a commercial airliner produce around 140 dB. (For comparison, OSHA regulations won't allow you to work for more than 15 minutes at more than 115 dB without protection; the NIOSH, which is part of the CDC, sets the threshold even lower, at 100 dB.) Inside the cockpit, the pilot would probably be subjected to around 75 dB if he wasn't wearing a headset.

*** It could also be a case where he wanted to distract the cops but also keep others focused on him when the time was right, if bombs were going off around the city he might not have had a chance to get that new helicopter to record his victory over Batman as they would have been busy covering the destruction

**** There's still a time delay of anywhere from 10 seconds to 10 minutes on "live" broadcasts, so that the censors have time to insert a bleep if someone says one of the Seven Words You Can't Say On TV. While it doesn't answer the question (the correct answer is below this one), it does mean that (depending on the length of the broadcast and the length of the delay), that interception is still possible.

** Couldn't resist adding this somewhere, and this folder seems to be the most appropriate place to put it. Exactly HOW do you punch someone who is already face-down, in the BUTT so hard it knocks them unconscious? (Yeah, I know, I know. "It's Batman." If anyone could figure out how to knock someone unconscious by punching them in the ass, it's him. Maybe my sense of humor is a little juvenile, but I find it incredibly funny on the rare occasions that this occurs.)
