So you came back to die with your city.
“…Even a man doing something as simple and reassuring as putting a coat over a little boy’s shoulder to let him know the world hadn’t ended.”
“They’ll kill us if they can, Bruce. Every year they grow smaller. Every year they hate us more. We must not remind them that giants walk the earth.”

A BATMAN SUPERPOST
In the Gotham justice system, there are three enforcers of the law: the police, the judicial system, and Batman. Batman is a really rich and really moody dude who saw his parents get killed when he was a kid and who runs around wearing a cape, angsting across the skyline and fighting crime as a way of self diagnosed therapy.
Okay, the first thing you need to know about the Batverse is that it’s flippin’ enormous. Like, Batman authors have to be the most profilic sons of bitches out there. But here’s a few comics to get you started.
Batman: Year One (Year One comics are always a good place to start)
The Killing Joke (there are no words)
Arkham Asylum: A Serious House on Serious Earth (terrifying, yet ensorcelling)
The Man of Steel comes across The Dark Knight.
