People have been asking why Batman doesn't kill Joker for nearly a century now

And yet, the only actual answer DC has given is:
>Because he'll turn into a genocidal schizo and will gain near-infinite godlike power that threatens to destroy the multiverse!
That's it. THAT'S their best argument.

      I honestly can't believe that isn't canon already. Like, they could even play with it like "we don't know he's immortal" but he keeps getting "killed" maybe Batman is hallucinating him, maybe he is a meme and people keep "becoming" him "but that doesn't make sense."

      Joker knows about Lazarus Pits and seems to have had access to one before he and Bruce destroyed it and lost their memories temporarily due to "trauma scars" being "healed over".

    This is a pseud question only non comic readers struggle with. Batman is mentally ill and has been characterised as such for decades. His code is not supposed to be objective right and wrong or even be sensible. He’s a schizo.

    >Batman why won't you just kill the Joker? he has probably killed millions and millions more the longer you keep him around
    >Because if I start killing, I won't stop :*~~*~~)
    Batman is a gay and severely mentally ill, his entire crusade against crime is just to experience eternal thrills and to fulfill his moronic self righteousness. This is also due to writers not wanting to kill off his eternal arch-nemesis, Joker brings in the money and attention, can't have one without the other, it's a sad state of the entire franchise. I would just make Joker an evil spirit at this point, goes around possessing people with the potential to go full society. this way, writers can actually have Joker die often due to someone he pissed off finally taking revenge, and Batman instead of doing the eternal capture-Joker-throw-in-jail-Joker-escape-repeat cycle, can actually be trying to get rid of this evil Joker spirit for good, but he can't find a way to exorcise him entirely, it would be the GREASTEST MYSTERY that the WORLD'S GREATEST DETECTIVE will dedicate his life to trying to solve, this way it won't make Batman seem ignorant of the consequences of keeping Joker alive.

                Sure it does, if you're looking at morality through an actual lens that matters such as the legality of killing another human being, assuming laws are just and moral. If you're going to swerve off in to "Never moral to kill" territory, frick off with your metaphysical moral absolutism that means jack shit in any practical discussion.

                The law has plenty of rules that define when it is and isn't murder when you use lethal force. Should Bruce be murdering the Joker in his sleep? No. Should he use lethal force in the defense of himself or others? Absolutely, especially in a case where the guy he's fighting has demonstrated over and over that he will continue to kill other people.

                if this thread is any indication, the only "people" tired of it are vocal minority idiots like you.
                A lack of a dividing line is exactly why he should not kill.

                The issue is basically every long running Joker story has basically become a metajoke about the whole concept itself. The joker's motivation has basically become "how far do I have to go before someone drops me?" He concocts increasingly elaborate trolley problems with higher stakes just to see if Batman will ever just flip the switch and mow him down.

                I mean the not killing thing is fine when the Joker is relatively harmless, or at least not so bad as to not justify putting him down any more than any other dipshit on the street, but when we're talking global threat, chemical/nuclear weapons Joker, we're so far past the bar of "defense of self or others" and having a personal deep aversion to ending someone's life it becomes comical. Maybe that's why they call him the Joker, because its a cosmic fricking joke no one has put him in the ground yet.

                He is downplaying it, because he's expecting his own way of coping to be automatically universal based off his own isolated experience. Other people affected more severely than him will have no confidence in the legal system, it's unlikely for them to adopt a legalist worldview.

                No, that is half-egoism and half-survival instincts in uniting with same-looking/smelling/sounding species and not trusting others for the sake of being able to reproduce and not to be eaten on the instincts side and not to be eaten and to be protected on the egoistic side. Through that altruism as a subtype of egoism is born - helping your society is good, others are food, thar helps to survive, or a threat, that prevents your survival, and should be avoided or destroyed for the sake of yourself and your tribe.
                Works until there is not enough territory for all, that is when wars and mixing of incompatible groups happens.
                Very few are inherently evil, that is more of a mental disease. Most just want to live and live happy, safe, comfortably and without any threats on their territory. As it is impossible - morals are being applied to prevent egoism to apply evil, as this will create further aggression, more evil spreading faster and faster until remaing groups are too far away from each other or until everything dies (because nukes and possibility to wipe out entire planet several times are unnatural and shouldn't have existed at all).
                Hence everybody is egoistic, some are insane hence evil, some others are also insane hence altruistic toward groups they don't belong to and have no use of.

        If I were a cop in Gotham, I would gladly accept a little bit of jail time and being beaten up by a mentally ill rich guy in a fursuit if it meant being the one to finally kill the Joker. Given how high the guy's kill count usually is, there is a decently high chance that I would be pardoned before even having spent a single day in jail.

    This entire thing is the comic world's biggest bullshit.

    The "no kill" rule has always been an external thing and has never been properly implemented in a Batman story to this date because when they created the fricking crazy bat costume wearing vigilante, he did kill, and it would have been weird for him not to.

    It was something first created because of censorship, and then because of fan legacy. Batman can't just be like any other sane hero and try to not kill and only kill when its necesarry because DC are backed in the biggest writing corner in fictiona human history.

    The only thing writers can do about it that isn't god awful is portray Batman as a geniunenly insane psychothic piece of shit that should not be a hero in the first place and portray his no kill as objectively bad.

      What about he doesn’t want to kill people becuase he’s aegis parents gunned down in front of him, so maybe he doesn’t like murder so much? What’s wrong with that?

        No one likes murder, and almost every single hero avoids murder like the plague. The wrong part is that it is geniunely psychothic mentally unwell behavior to not kill a person for the sake of protecting others. Anyone with an actual functioning brain and psyche would kill most of the people in Batman's villain roster and it would be 100% justified and a good thing.

    It is the same reason why Batman doesn't molest people. If he molests his villains then what next? Does he start molesting his robins? The bats in his cave? Alfred? When does it stop? If he crosses that line then he could not stop himself from molesting everyone.

    It's honestly kind of disturbing you need a narratively engaging rationalization for someone, much less a hero, choosing not to kill. Either you're struggling to find a reason not to kill, or you believe that is the default state of everyone else. Neither are a good place to be.

              Batman doesn't kill because murder IS a simple and efficient, but morally bad globally way to stop Joker from killing. And because is it such an easy and effective way, Batman would be unable to stop himself from killing first big bad guys, than just bad guys, than potentially bad guys, which is an entire planet. At this point murders by Batman would outweight murders by everyone else and will eventually lead to acceptance of murder as a solution globally, extinction of humanity and, potentially, extinction of everything else Batman would be able to reach to prevent murders being committed by others.

                Kevin Conroy? The no-kill rule has been a thing since 15 years before Kevin Conroy was BORN.
                Killtards like you are legit morons who want to ruin the character, you don't even know anything about Batman.

                See Paul McCartney's influence on Lisa Simpson, there's precedent for permanently changing a character based off the wishes of an actor
                It wasn't until Conroy's version of the character that the role started to be heavily enforced and become the de-facto standard, the live-action Batman films of the time did not follow this rule which may have contributed to their increasingly negative receptions. The difference is back then the writers and artists were still allowed the freedom to treat this rule as an option instead of a mandate

                No, that's absolute bullshit you made up. You unironically know nothing about Batman and are now trying to sabotage his perception when all you actually know about him is shit gossip you must've heard on a spiderman slop thread or something.
                You're probably the same idiot in this thread who bought that lie that the Aurora shooting was "inspired by Joker" when that was said multiple times by police to be fake and a gossip magazine rumor.

                The no-kill rule became a hardline no-exceptions-allowed rule in Batman 16, in 1943, almost 50 YEARS before btas started. It existed since Batman 1, but the silly panels of Batman sometimes breaking his rule by accidents or throwing people into hazards stopped after Batman 15.
                This was because editor Whitney Ellsworth told Finger to stop letting Batman use guns in stories and created a policy that none of the other heroes should be allowed to kill either.

                What was moronic in BTAS is last second censorship in this episodes with assassins and hypnobaron Whatshismame, when snitch, who had falled down from statue was not killed, but "swam away", while two assassins after saying their "glory to arstorska" and gassimg themselves had "erased their personalities". And exatly the same thing by extension in beyond, when deadly blue-skinned arabian female assassin just "erased league of assassins' leaders personalities" insteas of killing them.

          His only confirmed (through Damian's existence) sex with him using his dick had been with Talia al'Ghul, but his dick is still functional. That means, that he had alreadu figured, that he had to create and always carry with himself his superfleshlight a.k.a. Bat-wienersucker to maintain full functionality of his body. Of course, after that cave, he would have to replace it with clean new Bat-wienersucker 2.0.

    The problem is that western hero comics are made with no end in sight, they just want to keep making stories with the same characters over and over and over. It never reaches a conclusion, and even when it does, some dumbass writer years later just decides to undo everything, ressurecting dead characters and plots for no reason other than to keep the story going with character people recognize.
    So, killing joker or any other greater villain would be taking away a major feature from a comic that has no intention of ever ending.

    What comics need to learn from mangas is that stories need to have a set end. It might take decades, but it needs to end. After it ends, you can do a reimagining or some shit, but the main story needs to end at some point.
