That was some stunt you pulled at the racetrack.
Keeps the blood flowing.
So long as most of it stays inside you.
Worried about me?
Let's just say I'm glad you survived Batman's retirement and I was hoping you'd keep it that way.
They call us a gang. They think we just noisy kids. Only when they die by our hands will they know Gotham City belongs to the Mutants! [crowd cheers] Take the guns, take the bombs. Storm police headquarters, and kill... and kill! Bring me the head of the old man Gordon. I will carry it through the streets. And the Batman who thinks he can mess with us... I will tear him limb from limb!
Mutants: Surrender now or be destroyed. [Mutant gang opens fire on Batmobile] Don't even wait for an order. Kids today... no respect.
[picks up shell next to fallen Mutant member] Rubber bullets. Ha! All this metal, and you don't even use it to kill! It's just a shell to keep you safe? What's the matter? Ain't you got the stomach for it? I call you coward! Come out here and face me like a man. I kill you, I eat your heart! Prove you can take me. Prove you can fight with your hands. C'mon, man! You borin' me.
Sir, you can't seriously be...?
He's in his prime. He'll kill you.
It's the only way I'll know.
We will kill the old man, Gordon. We will chop him, we will grind him. We will bathe in his blood. I, myself, will kill the fool Batman. I will rip the meat from his bones and suck them dry. Don't call us a gang. Don't call us criminals. We are the law. Gotham City belongs to the Mutants.
