Batman in Hells Kitchen

#1 Posted by ULTRAstarkiller (5942 posts) - - Show Bio

If batman and Daredevil switched comics how would crime be in Gothem and Hells Kitchen. Would Batman strike more fear into Daredevils villains and vice versa. Also whos intimidation techniques are more effective.

Sorry about the title I had no idea it was already used till a few seconds ago.

I dont actually know that much about DD, but id say that Bats would strike fear big time!

Hells Kitchen is a lot smaller. Batman spreads his presence over all of Gotham.

DD's city is called Hells Kitchen? uncreativety at its finest there :P

It would be interesting to see DareDevil take on some of the stranger characters in Batman's rogues gallery (Mr. Freeze, Scar Face, Poison Ivy) because I feel that most of the rivals he faces in his books are mostly ninjas and more down to earth mob criminals. Batman would have Hell's Kitchen cleaned up in a week because he doesn't have any of Matt Murdock's personal responsibilities (lawyering) and problems. It would be fun to see him take on Elektra and the Hand.

@FatihBATMAN: Actually its supposed to be the Hell's Kitchen in Manhattan. Marvel isn't like the DC universe. In Marvel everything is supposed to be happening in real locations (usually New York) unlike DC's Metropolis and Gotham cities.

... Batman, all of his focus concentrated into a single neighborhood alone?

It's as close to Christmas as he's ever likely to get.

Inner City of New York where Daredevil reigns supreme. Also known as Clinton.

Clinton (aka Hell's Kitchen) is a part of New York City

This pretty much. I see crime ending a lot faster in Hell's kitchen.

@FatihBATMAN: But it's a real place that's actually called that. While we're at it, Gotham is a bit heavy-handed. Evoking the word "gothic" and then spamming the place with gargoyles and shadows and rain forever and ever and ever isn't exactly subtle either.

I'm somewhat new to Daredevil, but I don't see quite the same kind of fear in the common criminal toward Daredevil that I do Batman. In Marvel's NY, these people are used to living around super powered heroes. DD is just the one that happens to patrol their neighborhood. I've also seen a couple mentions where criminals comment how DD won't kill them. I know Batman doesn't kill either, but his persona and legendary reputation seems a lot more played up around Gotham.

Another difference I see is that Batman's quest has changed more than Dardevil's. Now Batman spends more time taking out psychotic super freaks, training proteges, and assisting with JLA-level threats. DD on the other hand still seems to be dealing with crime bosses and the one-man street-level war on crime. While Batman still goes out from time to time to "patrol," I get the impression that in many ways he's moved beyond that.

The crime rate will drop but only in Hell's kitchen.

@FatihBATMAN: Also Hell's Kitchen use to have a lot of Irish Americans and since Matt Murdock (DD) is Irish it makes a lot of sense. However these days Hell's Kitchen is so far I understand pretty safe and not what it used to be.

DD hasn't always been like that it is fairly new. Before Miller he was more like a cheap version of Spider-man. He was off in SF with BW for some time and also had a Sci-fi inspired period. Batman did a lot of different things before he got transformed in the 80's. Ironic enough also by Frank Miller. It is funny how people think that DD always has been this crime noir superhero.

Yeah, I understand that much of the status quo has to do with Frank Miller. And like most, I think Frank's changes were for the best. They certainly were in the short-term, seeing as the book was about to be canceled. I haven't been following Mark Waid's current run, but my impression has been that DD is still a street-level superhero. He's not getting calls from the Avengers, like Batman gets from the JLA.

Well DD is a street level character make him fight with the Avengers would just seems stupid. He has nothing to do in a fight with Thanos, Loki or Galaticus. Even though he has done some quest appearances lately.Some changes a good, some just plain stupid. This would be plain stupid and make no sense. Also people should stop see DD as Marvels Batman. It is way to simple and they are to were different characters. Both in their civilian lifes and as superheroes.
