They do actually ” need ” Batman to keep protecting Gotham , but after how they wanted him to turn himself in/blamed him for the city’s problems, they don’t really “deserve” him. I get the meaning of the actual line in the movie, but to be honest only the second part fully makes sense.
I never understood the last lines of the Dark Knight , what’s the point of “hes the hero Gotham deserves but not the it needs right now” “Commissioner James Gordon : Because he’s the hero Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So, we’ll hunt him, because he can take it. A Dark Knight .”
Batman was the first symbol for Gotham, and he inspired Dent just as he ( Batman ) intended to do . Dent was, therefore, the “white knight” who would come along and save Gotham, in the eyes of the public and in the eyes of Batman . Notice, however, that Gordon was always more skeptical and less trusting of Dent .
Gordon doesn’t survive, though. He prevents the Mayor’s death, but he’s seen to have been killed in the process. That makes his family safe. Joker has no limits when he targets someone, but if the target dies , it doesn’t matter.
Batman is a true hero . If their was a gotham city, I wouldn’t go if he’s not there to protect us. What makes him a hero is not his inteligence or gadgets, but his devotion to not letting people go through what he went through. In that sense, he doesn’t want others be hurt like he was when he was just a kid.
Batman is neither good or evil . He doesnt care about good or evil , and is not really capable of it. Batman is a victim. He is sick and tries to get better, but his methods are ineffective.
“If this man is everything that you say he is, then this city needs me.” – Bruce Wayne, The Dark Knight Rises. After Alfred alerts Bruce that Bane is wreaking havoc on Gotham, Bruce makes the decision to go back out into the city as Gotham’s hero, Batman .
To know just how alone you really are?”
This quote is explained by another quote in the movie about Harvey Dent “he is a hero , not the hero we deserved but the hero we needed”. When Gordon says that Batman is the hero they deserve he means that the dark and flawed city of Gotham needs a flawed and dark knight watching over them.
He wants to show the world that everyone is a monster when pushed onto the abyss. When Rachel died, Harvey lost his mind, he made it his personal mission to kill the person who couldn’t save her, Jim Gordon. The joker pushed Harvey onto the madness from where there is no return, this is why Harvey became bad .
Harvey is able to do what he does in the light — which makes him Batman’s hero — and any person who’s batman’s hero is a clear protagonist. The Dark Knight’s true hero is Harvey Dent , a character who technically lives up to his creed and dies before he becomes Harvey Two-Face, the film’s villain .
So Gordon says Harvey Dent killed five people and two of them were the cops, Wuertz and Ramirez. Among the remaining, two are Maroni and his driver. Who was the fifth one that Harvey killed ?
He is still married to his wife Barbara, and he and Barbara are the biological parents of Barbara “Babs” Gordon (aka Batgirl). During the Forever Evil storyline, commissioner Gordon enters Blackgate Penitentiary in order to save the warden.
Tied up and shot by Jerome inside the GCPD. One of the few people in Gotham City that Jim Gordon could put his full trust in, Captain-turned-Commissioner Sarah Essen shared a name with Jim’s comic book lover, though the live-action characters never got romantic.
