To go off on a tangent, I actually have an interesting theory about these Christopher Nolan movies. I read some of a book by Marc Dipaolo on comic book literature, and I compared it to the Nolan movies, and I realized that the Gotham City the three movies sells us isn't American symbolically unless you compare it to the Soviet Union in the 1980s, but invert the goals of all the major villains. Ra's al-Ghul is a businessman, capitalist, or labor organizer that wants to fight socialism, Scarecrow is an intellectual or professional that knows psychology or ethics or logic that wants to fight corruption, Zsasz is a scapegoat, Joker is a survivor of a political pogrom, Harvey Dent is a victim of his own regime, once a hero, and Bane is a soldier returning from Afghanistan that realizes what life is like, both in terms of how the rest of the world views the Soviet Union, and how much they desire for freedom. If you look at that, with the characters inverted, you have a Bohemian Grove theory present, called the Effigy. Being that, (and the Bohemian Grove is involved in Hollywood and music, since at least as far back as the Grateful Dead), if you take a fictional villain and put someone in their place, you'll empower people that are easily swayed by popular culture (normative individuals, not Byronic individuals, the 'specialists' as Stalin called them) by making them feel socially adapted and adjusted by targeting regime enemies.
It's a controversial theory, and I'm not sure if it's really what's on screen, but it would make for a good sub-strata theme (the 'feel') for this art deco Manhattan MUSH, if you want to brush up on your late Cold War history.
