Are you so desperate to fight criminals that you lock yourself in to take them on one at a time ?

The city needs Bruce Wayne, your resources, your knowledge. It doesn't need your body or your life. That time is past.

My name is Merely Ducard but I speak for Ra's al Ghul... a man greatly feared by the criminal underworld. A mon who can offer you a path. Someone like you is only here by choice. You have been exploring the criminal fraternity but whatever your original intentions you have to become truly lost. The path of a man who shares his hatred of evil and wishes to serve true justice. The path of the League of Shadows.

This town deserves a better class of criminal and I'm gonna give it to them. Tell your men they work for me now. This is my city.

Okay. Now... Hardened Kevlar plates over titanium-dipped, tri-weave fibers for flexibility. You'll be lighter, faster, more agile.

I got another another job. Your.
