Batman Quotes Comics
Bats frighten me. It’s time my enemies share my dread.

The public likes you. That’s the only reason that this might fly, but it’s all on you. They’re all gonna come after you, now. Politicians, journalists, cops.

Batman Quotes On Fear
This is what happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object. You truly are incorruptible, aren’t you? You won’t kill me out of some misplaced sense of self-righteousness. And I won’t kill you because you’re just too much fun. I think you and I are destined to do this forever.

You see, their morals, their code, it’s a bad joke. Dropped at the first sign of trouble. They’re only as good as the world allows them to be. I’ll show you. When the chips are down, these… these civilized people, they’ll eat each other. See, I’m not a monster. I’m just ahead of the curve.
