Goofs

In Batman Begins Lucius Fox says about the Batsuit: "This sucker will stop a knife." In "The Dark Knight Rises", Batman gets stabbed. However, in The Dark Knight, Fox gives Batman a new suit that makes him more agile but also "more vulnerable to knives and gunfire". If Batman kept his old suit, it's likely that the knife would've been less effective.
