I am working on if the best that we can hope for is revenge
, next story I have planned for othersideverse. It's going to show how Steph got from Point A to Point B: her parents' deaths to Babs and Cass (and Shiva). I'd post the first section, but I need to do some research on correlating high school dropouts to poverty, teenage pregnancy to poverty, and figure out just what killing off all the criminals in a high-crime city like Gotham would do to its economy. "Criminals started dying everywhere, and everybody was a criminal, more or less, in Gotham." The best tactical solution to killing all the criminals in Gotham then would be to drop a nuke; so Bruce has to have a line somewhere, if the innocents are worth saving. Although I suspect this Bruce's motivations
are skewed more towards punishing the guilty than protecting the innocent, which is why Steph's mom dies.
Huh. He really has a lot in common with the Punisher.
