Yyyyyyeeeeaaaah-hh... this is a tad beyond the pale. I mean, I know this is the JOKER we're talking about, but when you get right down to it, he's still a helpless, handcuffed man being beaten with a crowbar in a police interrogation room. I already knew that Damian was a little bastard who has no patience with protocol, but still, this is a bit much for someone who wears the Robin costume. I do not approve.

Many would argue that the Joker is never truly helpless, any more than Batman is ever truly helpless.

I suppose, but it really doesn't matter, in this case, WHO the person getting beaten by a crowbar is - it's someone getting beaten by a CROWBAR. In the HEAD. While handcuffed and unable to adequately defend himself. I mean, I know that the Joker himself is notorious for doing exactly the same thing to Jason Todd, which makes this 'eye for an eye', but the Bat-clan are HEROES; they're supposed to be above this sort of thing. 'Eye for an eye' tactics used with a grinning maniac like the Joker don't achieve justice, they simply bring the heroes down to his level. Now, perhaps this is a deliberate tactic being used by the Joker - perhaps, as in 'The Killing Joke' and pretty much the entirety of 'Dark Knight', he's trying to bring the heroes down to his level, and succeeding. I don't care - the fact that Damian is falling into his clutches so EASILY, so QUICKLY, speaks very badly of him, in my opinion. As far as I'm concerned, this is a low point for the character, and I hope someone calls him on it.
