Obviously, Batman works best at night, where he can use stealth and intimidation to their maximum advantage. For a lot of fans, the idea of Batman going out during the day reminds them of the garish 1940s-1950s Dick Sprang era, or of Adam West.

But... I think that Batman is a driven enough character, focused enough on justice and protecting people that he would go out in the daytime if he needed to. For example, if the Joker took a bunch of hostages at a restaurant during the noontime rush, Batman wouldn't wait until sundown to deal with the issue, he'd be over there as soon as he heard about it.

What do you guys think?

He does if it's necessary, but his chief weapon is still fear. Fear and surprise. His two chief weapons are fear, surprise, and a ruthless efficien... okay, enough of that.

Anyway, he knows that the whole Bat persona is a lot less intimidating and fear-inspiring in the light when people can clearly see that he's just a man in a suit. At night, when he can seem to melt in and out of the shadows, or throw a scary disembodied voice out of the darkness, he can be seen as something much larger and more fearsome. Scared people make bad decisions and don't aim well, and that gives him better protection than the body armor when facing down multiple gun-wielding foes.
