No good deed goes unpunished! Freeing the world from Brother Eye was only the beginning—with Neo-Gotham now standing as the only stable society in the known world, thousands of refugees have fled their war-torn cities to come knocking at the gates. But when the mayor of Neo-Gotham claims his city can’t support the whole world, the fate of these people will rest on Batman’s shoulders.
While I think I was looking more for a villain for Batman to punch in the face and whatnot, I do like the idea of making this world that Tim Drake inhabits feel real and there isn't anything that screams real like refugees. This future world is in a shit place right now and like it or not, it has to have some time to get back to some semblance of normal. Hopefully along the line though, Batman will find someone to punch in the face.
