** I think that some of these replies have missed the point; the original headscratcher is that Alfred is telling Batman he needs to go save ''Gotham'' city, not ''Arkham'' city. The op is talking about how Protocol 10 was not putting ''Gotham'' city in danger, and yet Alfred tells Batman to stop the plan as if it is. The explanation that he needed to stop protocol 10 to save the cure also isn't a very good explanation because that endangers only some of the people in Gotham, not the whole city. I guess that from an in-story standpoint, Alfred meant "you need to save Gotham city" as in "you need to think about more people than just Talia" and not that all of Gotham was literally in danger. It's just that for all intents and purposes, Arkham City ''is'' a significant chunk of Gotham.

* I thought it was the victims that people claimed looked like Wayne, at least the first one, since Hush was actively looking for people with a resemblance to Bruce. Alternatively, he didn't add all the pieces at once, rather he sewed them onto his face as he got them, and had to re-bandage himself up after each surgery

** Given that when Superman broke that rule, he [[VideoGame/InjusticeGodsAmongUs quickly degenerated]] into a murderous tyrant, it may just ''be what happens'' when a modern superhero breaks that cardinal rule. I'd say Batman is just ProperlyParanoid about the dangers of [[ArtisticLicensePsychology Comic Book Psychology]].

** Remember that the Joker works by sowing the seeds of chaos. [[spoiler: If he has tainted blood sent to hospitals (and it can be safely assumed that he had it send to a number of different hospitals well-disguised in order to make identifying it difficult, and had key people bribed or blackmailed for their participation as mentioned below), then even if people figure out what's going on before too long then that still means that the blood donation and transfusion is effectively shut down until they can isolate and destroy the tainted packs. So even if it's only people of a certain blood group who are affected (which is unlikely; they'll probably have to analyze and / or destroy the entire supply just to be on the safe side, just in case the Joker thought it would be funny to taint other packs as well), that sill means that there's now a huge supply of blood which has to be tested and / or destroyed just in case. And then that blood needs to be replaced from clean, uncontaminated sources. This takes time. This means that a huge and essential part of the medical system is essentially shut down. That means that there's still a lot of people who may urgently need blood transfusions ''who are now unable to get them.'' It means that people who may die without an immediate transfusion are probably ''going to die'' where they wouldn't have had the Joker not interfered. And, of course, it means that the people who were given the tainted blood before the problem was identified are still dying unless Batman finds the cure. And then there's the natural panic that sets in once word spreads that the Joker's contaminated the blood donation system. Even if only a few people are exposed to the tainted blood, the ripples spread out and engulf Gotham's entire medical system. It's actually quite a clever supervillain plan.]]

** IIRC at several points the game (and background information) suggests that Two-Face is both (a) a fairly recent inmate of Arkham City, having only been imprisoned there not long before the events of the game, and (b) fairly low-down on the pecking order of crime bosses and struggling to get any kind of foothold between the Joker and the Penguin, who've carved Arkham City up between them. So Batman likely just assumes that between both of those points he probably wouldn't have any useful information to begin with.

*** I think the point they're trying to make is, when this billionaire pretty boy who people seem to assume has never even been in a fight started doling out moves out of nowhere, those being eerily similar to those used by a certain masked vigilante, how did nobody even START putting the pieces in place to think they were one and the same?
