Batman Standing at a podium out side of the New York Court House. It's 10:00pm at night, lights streaming from every direction. Thousands of people
shouting support or swear words, Police, swat, national guard surrounding the entire vicinity, cameras flashing continuously, the sound of helicopters
swooshing from every which way and direction all come to a calm as Batman begins to say his first words.
"People of America, I am Batman, no more....I can no longer protect you....I don't have the funds, nor do I have the will....I have been
defeated....By the Riddler!" Batman finishes by slamming his fist on the podium.
Shouts of support start coming from the crowed.
"Listen to me!...5 years ago, a few months before the gulf oil spill, I heavily invested in a corporation in order to gain a position on the
board...I did this because I was following a lead..a bread crumb trail...a riddle...left by a very dangerous adversary." Batman pauses for every one
to soak in the information.
"Thanks to my investments I was able to gain the information about what would happen if we drilled at that depth...Because of the pressure we would
not be able to stop the oil from coming out...I needed to prevent the catastrophe that I knew would happen...The Oil Spill. I invested even more but I
was to late......Once the sea life started to die despite all the money we all used to try to stop the flow the company stock fell. I became a poor
man over night. It was a trap." His words came to a stop as he started choking on his anger.
The burst of noise sprung up from the crowed as some voiced the obvious question "BP?" "No it can't be" "Are you serious!?!?!?".
Batman noting that the crowed was beginning to realize who he was felt his time running out so he continued "Yes People of America, now that the seas
are virtually dead from years and years of oil and dispersants, now that we are all displaced, now that the government has control of your lives our
companies and future, I bring you more bad news......It was all planned, there is no stopping them, And I can no longer afford to be Batman, because I
am......Bruce Wayne." As the last letters of that dreaded name come out of Bruce's mouth the same moment he took off his mask the crowed erupts into
a full blown Riot.
"Tier gas flying every where in an attempt to prevent the murder of the Countries highest profile case. Batman/Bruce Wayne simultaneously the world
most sought after terrorist and Worlds most looked for saddest tale of a Man who had it all and literally pissed it away destroying not only the gulf
of Mexico but also life as we knew it......regrettably Law enforcement were unable to hold back the angry mob and Bruce Wayne was beaten to death by
one of Batman's supporters from the crowed.....This was Tim Marks from Lox News, fair and balanced." Said a shocked reporter as the TV was turned
