Batman is not perfect and Arkham Batman is not the same as the cartoons or the movies or comics. There's simply good written stories and bad written stories. And there are good stories with parts that make no sense. And this is one of them. Batman can't save people from old age and that is why this part in the DLC makes no sense. All of a sudden creating a moral dilema where there shouldn't be any just for the drama.
And now he's creating some moral dillema in the DLC because a criminal with unnatural life span is about to hit the sack because he's too old? She made an excuse for the scar on her back as Bruce traced it with his fingers. Miranda suggested that they leave Gotham together on her plane, to which he replied, "Someday perhaps.

When Fredericks' life was threatened, Miranda told them to stop and the reactor was turned on with her and Lucius's hand prints. Leonid Pavela nuclear physicist kidnapped by Bane, turned the reactor into a nuclear bomb and Bane had the core removed. Miranda and Lucius were then released.
The bomb was taken to the Gotham City Stadium and there the world was told by Bane that an anonymous citizen, an "unsung hero," controlled the trigger to its detonation. The bomb was later taken to a truck to patrol the streets of Gotham. After Bane took over Gotham, Miranda and the other Wayne Enterprise board members hid with the help of a rag tag group of cops that hoped to free the city.
Special forces men led by Captain Jones from the U. However, Bane and the mercenaries arrived there and killed the special forces men.

Selina helped to rescue Lucius and Batman rescued Gordon, from whom he was told that Bane had Miranda. Batman presented Selina with the Batpodand she muttered, "You're gonna wage a war to save your stuck-up girlfriend.
Batman damaged Bane's mask in their confrontation at city hall and caused him immense pain and Batman gained the advantage over him in the fight. As Batman interrogated him on where the trigger to the nuclear bomb resided, Miranda stabbed Batman and revealed her true identity as Talia, the child of Ra's al Ghul, and the anonymous citizen who had the trigger to the bomb.

Despite being aware of Batman's true identity as Bruce Wayne since their first meeting, Ra's has never exposed that information to the public or Batman's other foes; something Batman once attributed to Ra's' personal code of honor.
However, Ra's has repeatedly used that knowledge to his own advantage when fomenting plans and contingencies against Batman. In the story "Resurrection Night" in BatmanRa's helps all of Batman's foes to escape from Arkham Asylum and the Gotham State Penitentiary, setting them on a plan to abduct certain individuals across Gotham City who are linked in one form or another to Batman.

Two Elseworlds stories, Kingdom Come and Brotherhood of the Bat, feature two alternate versions of Ibn as an adult, coming to terms with his dual heritage.
The recent appearance of the child under the name Damian in an issue of Batman implies that this policy may have changed. Ra's offers Bruce whom he addresses as "Adversary" a chance at immortality.
Ra's has determined that if two people enter the Lazarus Pit, the Pit will merge both life forces, destroying one soul in the process and imbuing the other with youth and immortality without the ensuing madness. With his only alternatives being a fifty-fifty chance at death in the Pit or being murdered by Ra's' men, Bruce agrees to the process.
He survive exposure to the Pit and subsequently uses Ra's' criminal empire to clandestinely set up an international humanitarian network. He also becomes a near-immortal, aging one year for every century. New Age Dawning crossover book considered an Elseworlds storyRa's begins plans for worldwide devastation.
