Batman: Have you ever thought about how similar we are, Clark? Our methods and our cities are not that different.
Superman: Your approach is fear-based, Bruce. You operate from the shadows. And Gotham is nothing like Metropolis. Not really.
Batman: Sure it is. Maybe the crimes are different, maybe the degree of violence is different, but that’s got nothing to do with the people who commit them…and everything to do with the fear of being found out and getting caught.
Superman: People suffer all kinds of crimes, the worst of crimes, in your city, Bruce. Even children. That’s not your fault. No one can be everywhere at once. You can’t stop every crime. You can’t see everything.
Batman: But you can, Clark. You can see through walls. You can be on the other side of town in the blink of an eye. Everyone in Metropolis knows this. Is that the reason you do interviews and tell everyone that you can see through walls? Is that the reason you let everyone know about you?
Batman: When you do, Clark, you take the power out of the shadows. You steal away a criminal’s safety in the dark. You make them afraid. And people say I’m the smart one.
