Greetings True Believers!

Normally I don't swim in the DC pool but I couldn't resist this time.

We've had a lot of Batman/Joker posts with the horrible things the Clown Prince of Crime has done and what should be done with him.

It reminded me of this Robot Chicken skit (Mark Hamill FTW!).


Plus a funny of image of the Dark Knight I found.

I love Robot Chicken. Tasteless and they have an impressive memory.


Plus this image. I like it. If a normal ever comes up to you and says, "You're a grown man/woman/entity and you read comic books? Go to comic book conventions? You have over 10 comic book related t-shirts?"

Just smirk and think of this image.

Thor approved.

He wouldn't have to even bend it if the judicial body legally empowered to execute people exercised it's authority.

Bruce Wayne doesn't trust his judgement on who lives and who dies on shades beyond 'all'. To him, it's still a line that's be very damaging to his code to break, and "Batman" is based on such things.

I agree. It's more than just a code to him, it's a line that he feels he personally has no right to cross because he feels if he does he will be just like the criminals. It's not quite like the no-kill codes of other superheroes, which are based more on the logic of killing = murder = wrong =/= heroic, which isn't an absolute.

Pretty sure Joker would be a federal criminal/threat to national security and killed by the Army at some point, reguardless of Gothams stance on the death penalty, tbh.

Actually, I think the state has put him to death a couple times now, but he whipped up some chemicals that allowed him to survive the executions. Once by electric chair and once by lethal, but I might be wrong about that second one.

Admittedly I know death is a revolving door in comics, but that doesn't explain why he hasn't been shot- in excessive multiples, in the brain and vital organs, then had his body burned and the ashes scattered.

in DC that won't be perminant, but it could at least buy the world 6 months to a year.

I mean as a vigilante, doesn't he handle problems we can't or won't?-

Can't, maybe, but they can deal with Joker.

He's not the one to decide on ones the people actively decided against, though.
