Batman Begins tells the story anew, when Bruce Wayne flees Western civilization following the murder of his parents. He is taken in by a mysterious instructor named Ducard and urged to become a ninja in the League of Shadows, but he instead returns to his native Gotham City resolved to end the mob rule that is strangling it. But are there forces even more sinister at hand?
Batman: [knocks on new Bat-signal] Nice.
Gordon: Couldn’t find any mob bosses.
Batman: Well, Sergeant?
Gordon: Oh, it’s lieutenant now. You really started something. Bent cops running scared, hope on the streets…
Gordon: The Narrows is lost. And we still haven’t picked up Crane or half the inmates of Arkham that he freed.
Batman: We will. We can bring Gotham back.
Gordon: And what about escalation?
Gordon: We start carrying semi-automatics, they buy automatics. We start wearing Kevlar…they buy armor-piercing rounds.
Gordon: And you’re wearing a mask… and jumping off rooftops. Now, take this new guy. Armed robbery, double homicide. Got a taste for the theatrical. Like you. Leaves a calling card. [hands Batman a Joker playing card]
Batman: I’ll look into it. [walks to edge of roof]
Gordon: I never said thank you.
Batman: [turns around to look at Gordon] And you’ll never have to.
[Batman spreads his cape and leaps off the roof]
