Batmans rule is stupid. No killing criminals who have killed hundreds of people. They go to jail they escape. Kill a hundred more bats puts them back in wash rinse repeat.
@BlazingBowman, he’s not the only hero in both dc and marvel that does that
@megamanx181x, still its a stupid rule
@BlazingBowman, it's a stupid rule sometimes. Someone like the Joker? Yeah. Maybe kill that one. Sszasz? Yeah, murder him, too. But someone like Catwoman that's just into property damage and stealing? Or Riddler who isn't super violent, I understand the rule.
@megamanx181x, Well its pretty typical because comics go on forever. So you can't have the hero killing off all his well known villains.
@Weird Porn Stash, bingo, I mean these stories would be over in a heart beat if everyone died
@BlazingBowman, they said it in one comic, for him killing would break the last bit of his sanity. But yeah it's mainly an excuse to realistically keep his villains around
@BlazingBowman, in batman's case it's often presented as part of his flaws. He's so tormented that to him the only thing separating him from his villains is his one rule. Other characters like Jason Todd kill people, but because they're not on the brink of insanity they can tell the difference between justified killing and murder. It's a dumb rule but an interesting story element.
@BlazingBowman, its a story....we can have jumps of logic for sake of the message....also just cause u think its stupid it dont mean jt is.....all im saying is dont make your opinion a fact or u will hurt yourself with that logic in the future
@BlazingBowman, watch/read batman: under the hood (i thinks thats whats they are called i dont know for sure) batman tels the reason he doesnt kill
@Urraca Mesa, No, no capes.
Read the early issues, pre Comic Approval Code era Batman. He killed numerous times.
@Suicide Squad Sucks, yeah, back when he was cool and had sweet pearl handled .45s
@Hot Coffee, and was played by Sean Connery! LOL
