This is something that bugs me about DC's main heroes, none of them do their job right and their villains come back over and over again. On the occasion that we look at an alternate universe where their heroes kill a villain they usually go insane and become evil. Which means they're not really heroes, just costumed freaks beating people up and leaving them there to get angrier.
@The Omega Username, this is exactly why Rorschach from Watchmen is one of my favorite comic book characters
@The Omega Username, I agree with you on principle, but of course the real reason for this is that it is difficult to come up with compelling villains that the audience will like and so it is easier and therefore profitable to reuse previously established villains.
As a side note, you probably shouldn’t apologize for the length of a comment, especially when it’s barely one full paragraph. I apologize for long comments when my comments hit the character limit on three subsequent comments.
It’s like apologizing for talking. You shouldn’t put yourself down like that.
@The Omega Username, i think they just don't want to kill humans. I think it's a different story when aliens is around
@The Omega Username,
At least marvel characters don't make that mistake. Sh!t, even carnage was contained and then thrown into a protester to try and kill him so he would stop killing the innocent. Marvels problem is they have convienent ways for villains to come back, but DC never solves any of its problems.
@The Omega Username, Batman said it only takes one killing to be justified for dam to break
@The Omega Username, this is the best comment I have read in a long time. I legit broke out in crazy laughter and now I have to explain to my African parents wtf superheroes, memes and what this comment means in relation to those things listed.
Seems I'll return tomorrow. Nay. Next year. It's time to spread the meme bible.
Guess I'll start at the book of Dank.
@I Are Lebo, you're right, I'm gonna edit out my saying sorry on that, I have nothing to be sorry for. Wait, should I leave it to give context to your comment?
@The Omega Username, 🤷🏻♂️ you do you
@The Omega Username, Batman did have a sort of goofy, campy kind of start as a comic book hero, as did most heroes, and wasn’t nearly as dark as he is portrayed now. He’s a man teetering just on the edge of madness and uses these moral codes as a way of keeping himself in check. Not to mention most of the villains he fights has something mentally wrong with them which is why they are taken to an Asylum. In many instances in real life people are less inclined to want the death penalty for someone who is deemed clinically insane, so their only option comes down to locking them up. If these villains are arrested and brought to trial, then it’s also societies fault that these psychopaths in Gotham have an opportunity to escape and the blood of everyone that was killed by them is also on their hands by that logic.
It's pretty well established that batman isn't the most mentally sound guy so he doesn't trust himself to make that call and leaves it to the courts to decide.
@ReeseBobby, yeah his choice of sidekicks make that abundantly clear
On a serious note tho, in the universe where batman did kill joker didn’t he literally become just like him?! Because of toxic blood and such?
@JuztAD00d, dark multiverse
@Sir LancesALot, Joker, Clayface, Two-Face, Calendar Man, Poison Ivy, The Riddler, The Red Hood, and a few others are all super villains either directly or indirectly because of the existence and actions of Batman.
You may be right about him using lethal force creating more villains, you may be wrong. But him NOT using lethal force certainly creates villains.
What if looking at batman to solve our problems is the problem? Let's look at our justice system.
Both are wrong. It's incorrect that Batman would be just like the joker if he killed him and it's incorrect that the deaths caused by the joker are on Batman. They are on the joker and nobody else.
The very premise that killing someone makes you a terrible person or evil is the problem to me. Does Batman look at cops with disgust because they stoop to killing? No even firefighters start fires to stop bigger fires
If the joker was sentenced to be executed, but the night before his execution he escapes.
Batman catches him bit through some circumstance, either kills him or let's him go forever....
What would happen to birds of gravity pulled in a different direction?
Not exactly, if he killed, then it would just create more villains than if he didn't. He knows this because he himself almost became a murderer. He walks a thin line, and one misstep can lead him to losing it all. Also, it's more the justice systems fault because they keep from actually killing the joker because he is "insane"
That's just how people are you can't kill no matter what. If you're a hero and you kill that makes killing always justified.
I am completely sick of these. A couple weeks ago I turned to immediate down vote for the first time ever, and left ones that at least have a grin blank but fmfl. These are generally not remotely funny or clever and this trash meme is beyond overused. Sorry to go off on this particular post but jebus - this one needs to fscking die.
Thinking of Superman from Injustice and the Justice Lords after reading this.
What if he only killed those who have killed like 100 people. Bat man has a limit and can’t kill anyone who isn’t bad
Red hood debating with nightwing (2018 colorized)
Batman doesnt kill joker because "it be to dam easy" he has had dreams where killed the joker and made him pay for everything he has done
