Interesting question. How would Batman fare in the MU? The first problem is, would all of his supporting cast come over? Would Gordon? Because Miller brought up a good point in The Dark Knight; without Gordon's help, Batman could not function in Gotham City.

And another problem is if you look at Batman and Superman, their very cities are like supporting characters. Metropolis and Gotham have their own identities and because they are fictional cities the writers and artists have far more creative liscence.

So I don't think Bats belongs in the MU, with is so very much NYC-centric

This scenario does include the supporting cast of the Batman
comics.

And it's likely that the TPTB at Marvel would've had Commissioner
Gordan, Barbara Gordan, Nightwing (Dick Grayson), Robin (Jason Todd),
Alfred Pennyworth, Harvey Dent/Two-Face, Joker, Penguin, Poison Ivy,
Killer Croc, Scarecrow (Johnathan Crane), Hugo Strange and possibly
Matt Hagen, Basil and/or the third Clayface too.

I believe Marvel would've definitely had Gotham City integrated
into the main MU.

Do ya'll think that Jason Todd would've still been Robin today,
get killed/became deceased, retired from crime-fighting or do you
think he would've still been a crime-fighter with a new
costumed idenity and alias?
