Batman (Earth-203)

New Gotham was prominent for having registered the first known case of vigilantism in the figure of Batman, a brutal individual who dressed like a bat, fought against evil, and struck terror into the hearts of criminals everywhere, until the time that Catwoman was killed and Barbara Gordon was shot.[1]

Another vigilante that operated in New Gotham was Black Canary. She was the first female crime fighter and was infamous for her Canary Cry. She had worked with Batman on many occasions before his retirement, along with continuing to have a relationship with the crime fighter Batgirl.

Batman's had many proteges in his career of fighting crime. Among them being Robin, Dick Grayson, and Batgirl. All were famous for prowling the rooftops of Gotham with the Caped Crusader Batman.
