Dark Knight

"I am vengeance. I am the knight. I am Batman."

Not a good day for the Batman. And that was almost certainly "I am the Dark Knight", btw.

A 6-foot-tall, 275-pound bearded man crashed a children's birthday party in Oak Forest, identified himself as "vengeance," then helped himself to a piece of cake, police said.

And then... ***Dave and Neil Gaiman think the intruder said something else. I think my speculation is better.

The Chicago cops should question the proprieter of the "Android's Dungeon and Baseball Card Shop"

"I am vengeance ... I am the night ... I am Batman!" was a frequently-played sound blurb on Cartoon Network for Batman - The Animated Series (which sound blurb or network may or may not have made up to the wilds of Canada), which I think is a much more likely quote. (It's actually from a TAS episode, though I cannot find a WAV file for it.)

If that weren't the case, I'd say you were correct.
