Have to agree with m'learned co-Mod

Gotham is the way to go

and call me old fashioned but I'll take their 1980's or so incarnations over most of the iterations of this day and age; Criminals all, but NOT all mass-murdering megabastards...

Criminals, robbers, thieves who could actually challenge Batman in trying to fathom and solve their crimes, rather than just leaving with him trying to work out which sicko killed THIS bunch of random innocents in ther pursuit of being EEEVILL!!!

I'm not saying that these guys NEVER killed, but that they didn't revel in it all the time. A successful crimewave was not measured by bodycount but by how well they outsmarted Batman and Robin.

And whilst they schemed and planned, and built terribly creative death-traps for our heroes, they did it with a certain degree of style. If they couldn't stamp THEIR personalities on a crimewave, they might as well stay at home...

Not EVERY plan is a winner... even when it DOES work.
