While the fact remains that the Batman does sometimes break the law, he has also helped expose corruption within the FBI two years ago when they were being manipulated by the criminal Roman Sionis. As such, I have decided to grant the Batman and his team full presidential pardons for any illegal activities they have done and I am calling off the case against Mayor Bruce Wayne. I have doubts that the Mayor of Gotham City is Batman due to his obligations, but even if he was, I refuse to allow the FBI and anyone within my government to hunt and persecute a man who has helped save lives as well as expose our flaws. Mask or not, the Batman is a hero and he will not be condemned for his actions and Bruce Wayne will no longer be accused of being a vigilante, nor will he continue being the subject of an unwarranted investigation. Thank-you". Because of this, Armand's case against Bruce is thrown out and Batman is now a national hero.
