> 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.\

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.

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

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?

I don't see why. If you look at the history of Marvel they have no problem creating fictional countries, but all their American cities are real. They do not have a history of creating fictional cities and for them to make an exception for Batman...

Well, I just don't see it.

And Batman existing without a Gotham just doesn't feel right.

What, you mean if the fans did not vote to kill him off twenty or so years ago? I suppose so. But Jim Starlin did such a bang up job at making people despise the little creep that he was voted to be killed off pretty much based on his writing.

And it upsets me that the decision was reversed, that Todd was brought back. Todd should have stayed dead, darn it!
