    Good luck with this thread, anon. The last time I tried to have this discussion here the DCSlop and Marvelshit enjoyers ganged up on me and started making horrendous slippery slope arguments.
    One even went as far as to say that if you allow the heroes to start killing criminals they may as well just murder everyone in the entire world because we're all guilty of something.
    These people are braindead. Enjoy your thread.

      The main issue Is that Is really fricking easy to kill someone that didn't do anything wrong, that's why you need trials and shit (and even them you can make mistakes), so It depends on how okay you are with knowing you are going to end up offing some inocent people or not.

        The main issue is that you guys always have to invent these moronic scenarios where an innocent person gets killed when we're clearly talking about putting down the sick dogs like the Joker who are KNOWN to have committed mass murder and are likely to kill again.

        Frick's sake you people are so fricking annoying, don't reply to me ever again, forget low quality posts, your entire fricking life is low quality.

        Stupid being to quick to judge the situation is why society needs those things not why you as an induvial shouldn't kill an obvious mass murder. There's a difference between acting as a society and as an induvial. Also if you really want to play the slippery slope argument courts get things wrong all the time doesn't mean we can just let all criminal just walk free just in case their innocent, there's a balance to these things.

Most heroes can stop murderers without resorting to killing, most super criminales like the Joker have a million ways to make you confuse. On of the Joker's objectives is making Batman fall, so making him kill someone by mistake would be his greatest achivement.

              Is like you guys are purposely moronic on this threads, trying to ignore that Batman doesn't need to kill the joker because he's fricking Batman, he can stop the Joker in a million different ways besides killing him, because he's a superhero. And the joker is a supervillain , even if he gets kill he has a million ways to come back. Is like the irony of Jason, a guy who got magically resurrected and still think killing is the best choice, is lost on you.
              Comic books operate in their own logic, they have magic and technology beyond our real world, so normal means don't work here. How are you going to kill Solomon Grundy b***h? He's already dead. Of course this thread have convoluted ways of explaining how killing bad guys doesn't solve the issue, because it;s how comic books work.

Or he would revive the joker himself, like he did in an alternate universe where batman decided that reviving the joker would clear grayson from the crime or murdering the joker.

                If there is a reason this plotpoint keeps being brought up is because the comics went above and beyond to make it as moronic as possible, especially because they apply it to a hero that started out using guns to eliminate the villain of the week and that also ends up killing in every live action movie adaptation.

      Batman's application of "I only catch criminals, I'm not the judge, jury, or executioner" falls flat when you realize how utterly corrupt Gotham city is that no justice will ever be served for some of the worst and most heinous criminals in DC's entire universe. Bruce Wayne is not doing the city a service by being Batman, he needs to use his billions to run for Mayor and then overhaul the city's entire court system. Better yet just execute every last supervillain as the evidence of their crimes is undeniable and overwhelming.

        I kinda feel like the failings in most of these is the court system and you're supposed to just wholesale not think about how a court would ever release any given super villain. I honestly don't think it's a failing of super heroes but the suspension of disbelief required for a court to just shrug and give light sentences or refuse to execute.
        But the major flaw is at one point or another of the very premise of the most atrocious super villains returning again and again is simply unrealistic and emblematic of properties and characters that probably shouldn't go on indefinitely. You can have long running series, but the idea of a recurring villain lasting indefinitely asks these questions with difficult or no answers.
        At the end of the day, certain characters need to be retired. If you cannot continue to create new compelling villains consistently, that may be the sign that you have run out of stories and the series needs to end.

        In my opinion, the issue isn't making a believable explanation for why the villains keep coming back. It's creating a believable explanation why characters like these continue to be used indefinitely.

        I don't want to draw comparisons, but there's other series out there that have a defined beginning and end state and are allowed to reach a conclusion where certain characters have lived, and certain characters have died, and that's just what happened. And I think the big two are particularly lacking in this department. If they need to do one offs stories with the same characters in alternate worlds or settings or what have you, that's fine. But if it begins, then let it end. And I don't mean just a single one comic and done sorta deal. That said, overall - the big two need to simply start making new stories. And corn-holing everything into its own part of a grander multi-verse probably doesn't do them any favors.

          This. DC created the worst and most moronic universe logic because the company is there to milk an IP through a forever on-going, and hire edgelord fanboys who constantly needs to top each other to write that. All that could be solved by only doing independant elseworld stories from then on, but DC would lose the completionist and the batgays with a stockholm syndrom if they did, so it's not happening.

          There's literally no moral dilemma here. Red Hood was the bad guy. He doesn't even have the flimsy excuse Punisher does, because he's also a criminal.

          >"Controlling" the criminal underworld by pushing drugs, robberies and weapons deals all under what you define as "ethical" (like EVERY CRIMINAL GANG EVER)
          You're reading a lot into utrh. His endgoal is not even to control crime but to burn shit down until Bruce catch up to him. Re-read the dialogues where he and Sionis talk face-to-face at the end. He also doesn't pretend to represent any ideals. In fact, Winnick wrote Jason like a guy who can finally be who he was meant to be and utrh only make sense if you accept that Jason is a bad apple.
          You're right about there having no moral dilemna, though. Utrh is just a former Robin turned Batman's villain presenting a trolley problem to Batman, and Batman only.

            No, that's not the problem.

            The problem with Batman, that is very unique to Batman, is that the writers drew attention to his no-killing and then tried to justify it in-universe when from the get-go they should have just ignored it. No one asks why after 50 years Wolverine still has recurring villains, because the writers don't try to dedicate entire story arcs to Logan sparing certain villains- who deserve death- while butchering all their henchman. That certain bad guys just conveniently live to be bad another day is left to suspension of disbelief.

            Batman's dumb shit is what happens when you have writers who think they're smarter than they really are.

              Not only that but that they put depicted many of his villains as mass murderers.

When you have villains that just kept killing and killing and nothing is done eventually readers will get fed with it.

      Because it's murder and murder is against the law and if you break the law your a criminal and heroes aren't criminals.

      It's really quite simple.

      No it’s very subjective. Several arkham crazies have been rehabilitated. Even Joker has at two points. 90% of the batfamily are former villains and criminal murderers. And many arkham crazies are revenge killers just like you’re trying to force Batman to be, such as Black Spider and Freeze and Clayface.
      If you want to say Jason should be allowed to kill Joker then Freeze should be allowed to kill Ferris Boyle and Clayface can kill Dagget and Joker can kill all the staff at ACE and then Batman.
      Oh wait that last one was already the plot of Man who Laughs.
      Frick, Poison Ivy kills people in revenge for plants because to her they are alive and so everyone who ever stepped on grass is a remorseless murderer. That’s the definition of subjective.

      anon, murder is illegal, being a vigilante is also illegal but you know...stuff

      It's not murder at all though. Murder is defined as an unlawful or unjustified killing. Meaning you can carry out a lawful or justified killing. American courts have been so cut and dry on this issue for centuries, only in recent times with corrupt activist judges has it been any different. But under a non corrupt American court no jury would call you guilty if you shot the joker while he was gassing kids or something. A prosecutor would sound so stupid trying to argue to a jury that you weren't justified.

                Pretty much.
                Judd Winick said the story was supposed to end inconclusively, that you wouldn't know what happens to Jason after the warehouse blew and that for him, his story ended there. Whether he died or survived and disappeared, Bruce would be left with the thoughts of failure.
                Dan DiDio liked the response the Jason comeback was getting though, and decided the answer was "survive" and that Dick should die in Infinite Crisis and Jason take over as Nightwing. He got talked down from the idea, but not before some art was drawn up of Jason!Nightwing and the IC scene of Dick getting what was supposed to be the fatal blast.

                DC I guess figured that last UTRH issue to be a good way to tie into IC, so there was the final page of all those multiversal Bats screaming for Jason. The purple reality sparkles during the explosion plant some fan theories that ripples during the Crisis stopped the explosion from killing Bruce, Jason, and Joker and just magically healed the Batarang wound or something.

    It's not illegal to kill in self defense. It's not illegal to kill in self defense of others. Up until the 20th century it was common knowledge that the responsobility of enforcing the law was on the heads of the citizenry when the government failed to do so. If the sheriff wasn't doing his job, it was your duty as an American to kill the murderous bandits who were pillaging the town. Batman is an American citizen, Batman has the responisbility to uphold the law when the government fails to do so. The law says that mass murders are sentenced to death.when Batman does not follow through on this, he's breaking the law.

            It doesn't matter because even if they did, the joker has to continue to live forever because DC could never create an antagonist that did as well as he does at selling comics.
            The Joker lives because he sells comics, movies, games and cartoons/live action series. Arguably, creating a new animated series with its own continuity separate from others even if with a similar premise is one of the few ways I see DC being able to make something with a defined beginning and end point necessary to make something truly believably great. Not gonna make comparisons, but there's stuff out there where, "ok, this character dies." And that's what happens. They have an ending planned for the series from the start, even if the beats in the middle can sometimes change as it comes out, the ending of who lives and dies is still set and the story still progresses towards that end. What is happening in comics in my smelly popinyot is that the story just progresses to the next storybeat or plot event. It's not moving towards an ending, because they want it to continue forever.

Being a counter-culture weirdo who doesn't care that he kills a bunch of people but still understands what killing is and intended to do it is mentally competent, no matter if mommy touched his no no place or he has a brain tumor or his skinned got bleached.

            The thing is even if Lenny murders a girl in 2024 because he hugged a girl like he hugs the rabbits until they stop moving, he doesn't get to walk. He gets locked up in a mental hospital for the rest of his life. If, somehow, he escapes, the cops are basically going to put the moron with moron strength down unless he immediately capitulates, which he probably doesn't understand to do given he's a moron.

            yeah I thought about that too. Like, if there were a Joker fricking around in Gotham, but the other Joker hadn't escaped yet, wouldn't people immediately notice? Or like, if they took Joker back into Arkham, wouldn't they see another Joker was still there? Did the other Jokers know to escape right when the other one arose?

            I don't have a good memory of the story and I didn't keep track of it at all, so this isn't actually a criticism per se -- even if the concept of three different Jokers is inherently pretty convoluted. The way I'm describing it doesn't really add up.

                I mean, I actually kinda like the idea of multiple people taking up the Joker mantle. Like, the idea of Joker being an idea, a force of chaos and destruction, not tied down to any one single person, is pretty cool.

                I just don't know if you can do it retroactively in the mainline DC universe without it being really convoluted or contrived. Like, isn't Batman the world's greatest detective? Wouldn't he eventually notice that Joker kinda sounds or looks different sometimes? Wouldn't there be photographs or surveillance footage he could compare and say "hey, what the frick is this?"

    I agree. Superheros shouldn't murder criminals.
    But why doesn't the state? An episode of Superman TAS showed a criminal getting executed in Metropolis, but why doesn't Gotham? I don't care if the Arkham patients are considered insane, an insanity plea will only get you so far when you have the blood of hundreds upon thousands on your hands.

    I like to think that there's an alternate timeline where they did kill the Joker off for good, but now they're trapped in a cycle where there's just an endless stream of psycho supervillains to replace the last so nothing really changes. Over nearly a hundred years, AU Batman has killed countless villains, but editorial forces it so that Gotham can never actually get better. Also the more popular villains simply come back to life over and over.

      That or you get the Infinite Joker Crisis. You kill one, and he spawns more clones like a Hydra and they keep populating the Earth until it's overrun by Jokers.

      When you compare the city Batman has jurisdiction over compared to literally every single other member of the Justice League, Batman not being willing to kill his villains comes up a lot because Gotham is such a shithole and has the most psychotic and dangerous villains in comparison. Why would you choose to live in Gotham compared to Superman's metropolis? Honestly why? It makes no sense. Batman has failed at his job to keep the city safe because it is so crime ridden.

    I've always kinda wanted like a complete Batman serial that details his career from start to finish. In it, Joker would only appear a handful of times. He's not necessarily Batman's most frequent villain, but he's the most unpredictable and potentially the most devastating. In his final appearance, he would appear to perish but as they never find his body, Bruce can never be truly certain.

    Every time this thread gets made, I always ask the same question, and every time none of you can ever answer it: if you truly believe in vigilante justice, why don't you buy a gun or a knife right now (or a fricking wrench if you're so broke), look up sexual offenders near your area (which is public information, so you can't even use the excuse of "I don't know where to find criminals"), and go to them right now? What excuse are you going to throw at me now to explain why you won't?

    If you aren't going to do it, then either shut up or admit you're a coward expecting someone else to do the hard work for you.

        In real life he would have been either gunned down by the cops at one of his many legal escapades or killed by the military after the government declared him a terrorist and national threat. The no-kill rule itself is fine; the problem is the hidden rule that the authorities must behave preposterously and forfeit their literal primary responsibilities.

        Frank is a dick and I love him, but he hates crime and does everything he can to shut it down. Jason became a criminal kingpin under the flimsy guise that crime couldn't be destroyed, only controlled to do the least amount of damage. Something Frank would hate because the entire motivating factor for his life is his neverending war on crime. If it actually worked, it would render his life's mission redundant and ruin everything. If it didn't work, Jason would just be another thug.

          The gangs subplot is only here to pad the issues until Bruce decid to confront a ghost from his past and Jason only "long-term" plan is to burn down that part of Gotham. I don't know how you guys managed to lose track of such a basic fricking plot.

          It's supposedly still canon, which means Jason's a cringe simp for Barbara. Next thing you know we'll find out Tim's been harboring a boner too but has to vent his horniness into Bernard.

    No, Damnit! No.... I can't kill him because he's too damn marketable. This might be an alternate timeline, but DC wants the option to make a sequel if we're popular enough and the audience rolls their eyes at that "ghost of Joker" shit. I know we have the Lazarus pits but our writers aren't talented enough to make crazy crazier, they'll probably just do something stupid like say "crazy + crazy = sane." Don't you see what's at stake? I raised you better than this, Jason. I raised you with money.

    Jason was never right or genuinely trying to make a point. Everything he does revolves around either pissing off Bruce or trying to make Bruce prove he loves him. He could have killed the Joker or any number of supervillains quietly at any time after his revival when no one in Gotham was expecting him. That’s the actual smart, pragmatic option.

    It's as simple as this:
    Option A: An idealistic world of heroes where life is always worth saving.
    Option B: A realistic world of heroes where killing is permitted.

    The choice sets the tone of heroism, and both are fine as long as you don't start mixing them. You can have moralgays and The Punisher in the same universe, but one of them has to be morally right. Marvel and DC generally follow option A, meaning that killers are always on some level wrong. And that is the heroic ideal.

    Reminder the no kill rule is applied only because writers don't want to brainstorm new criminals.
    It only worked in lighthearted stuff like the Adam West Batman. But when it all got dead serious and kept getting worse with the Joker committing acts of genocide, then leaving him alive is the most brain-dead, moronic and unjust thing in the world.

      Not really. The no kill rule was started back in the 40's when they were making new villaisn every month.
      Also funny enough- Adam West Batman (accidentally) killed some goons, as well as outright threatened to kill villains for threatening a Catwoman who was in disguise as an Eastern european woman.

      If the joker's jokes weren't always horridly mean-spirited for no reason and didn't always involve 'recreating the Gangi river in Gotham out of pulverized toddlers' levels of senseless violence, then Gotham's continued tolerance of his existence would make more sense.
      But no, I guess ungrounded psychotic edge is easier to write than devising humorous, but highly disruptive, ways to troll society at large.

    So if the Joker was trying to kidnap someone and kill them with laughing gas, but the guy had a CC permit and put 10 in the Joker's chest in self-defense, killing him, would the guy in question become the Joker? Would Batman swoop down and tell him some bullshit about the amount of killers in the world remaining 1?

    Because if that is truly the case then Batman singlehandedly dispels any notion that anybody should be permitted to use lethal force to defend themselves, something that is otherwise argued as vital if, for example, some insane man in a clown costume hired a bunch of thugs to kidnap you and chemically lobotomize you. And if that's NOT the case then what Batman should really be doing is running as a right-wing politician who expands gun rights and allows common people to defend themselves against his entire rogue's gallery, as a granny packing a .45 would do more in three seconds than the Batman persona accomplished in 45 years.

    Also Superman could gore his entire body by just flying into him at moderate speed whereas Batman struggles a lot with the fights themself so the moral reservations are way more of a challenge here.
