Violence: A lot. Some, quite disturbing. A group of terrorists threaten to rape gotham. Batman takes these guys out frequently by beating the poop out of them (sometimes killing them)(BLOOD) The joker kills children and adults by shooting and basing them. Batman kills him by mutilating his body. Overall, there is a lot of death some, quite bloody.
