What the fuck is wrong with Batman?Why is he defending the Joker? Dude killed his child, crippled his friend, made his life hell for years and murdered hundreds. Why does Batman ALWAYS defend him like Joker is his girlfriend?
>>122176165What book is this from?
>>122176898Punisher Batman: Deadly Knights from October 1994not to be confused for the terrible Batman Punisher Lake of Fire from earlier in the year
>>122176143Because the writer wanted to gush about Punisher, so everyone acts retarded whenever he's around.
>>122176143>joker's actually afraid of someone with a gun>batman tells joker to run instead of taking out frank on his way down and knocking out joker a second laterImagine having to butcher two characters just to make Punisher look good.
>>122176143>Why is he defending the Joker? Dude killed his child, crippled his friend, made his life hell for years and murdered hundreds. Why does Batman ALWAYS defend him like Joker is his girlfriend?Because he doesn't like to watch people die.
>>122176143Because he wants the Joker to fuck him
>>122176143FACE IT BATMAN. YOU HATE ME BECAUSE I AM WHAT YOU'D BE IF YOU HAD THE BALLS.
>>122176143>Why does Batman ALWAYS defend him like Joker is his girlfriend?>Joker is his girlfriend
>>122179661injustice superman was kinda right at the beggining but he took a hard nose dive
>>122176143>What the fuck is wrong with Batman?
>>122178439>Because he doesn't like to watch people die.Look. I can understand turning the joker over to the law when you've captured him. But Batman multiple times in every incarnation, always goes out of his way to save Joker from the consequences of his evil actions. Which comes off to me that he cares more about Joker in a sick twisted fucked up way than he does the likely thousands of people he's killed over the seven or twelve years of in-universe time that have passed.
>>122176143Well, come to think of it, the child returned back to life (he's going through an edgy phase, but still), crippled friend got better and now she's hopping rooftops with the best of them, Gordon doesn't even remember about his dead wife at this point and Gothamites now just treat Joker as a minor inconvienience.So, really, he's not THAT much or a threat.
>>122180337Because when he kills the Joker he turns into Batman Who Ayys
>>122178404>>joker's actually afraid of someone with a gunThe implication isn't that the gun is scary, it's the Joker is in a state of shock realizing a "cape" is breaking the rules of Gotham >>batman tells joker to run instead of taking out frank on his way down and knocking out joker a second laterBatman doesn't have super tactical skills any more than Punisher does, Punisher is probably a better tactician considering he actually has military training, not...."ninja" training.
>>122181651Everyone knows ninjas > soldiers
>>122176143Batman is crazy. It's as simple as that. He's not trying to "save" anyone. He's just obsessed with pretending to be Zorro.
>>122176143So that DC can keep milking him for money.
>>122181651>The implication isn't that the gun is scary, it's the Joker is in a state of shock realizing a "cape" is breaking the rules of GothamJoker already met Vigilante and Question.
>>122181651What? Joker has never been surprised someone other than Batman has tried to kill him. In the previous page, Joker is not only in disbelief, he's actually afraid of dying. He's completely out of character.
>>122176143Because unlike you, Batman's not a jaded asshole. He believes that getting people the mental health care that they need, is the correct way to solve the problem, and not murdering it.Besides, it's not Batman's fault that Arkham can't keep the inmates contained. Batman's role isn't Judge, Jury, and Executioner, but vigilante crime fighter. He takes extra-legal actions to bring people the justice they deserve.Now, go back to reading about your sociopath who doesn't trust his coworkers, and is an unlikable jerk.
>>122178439>>122178462>>122180337essentially Batman has a phobia of seeing other people die that would be crippling for a normal person, he's able to work past it when it happens in a way he couldn't prevent but if he could and it happens anyways, that's when it becomes a problem for him, this is part of why he doesn't kill and why he often actively tries to save even his worst enemies, cause to do otherwise would probably be the thing to finally break him, and a Broken Batman is a very dangerous thing indeed(as Batkek has shown)
Bruce deliberately keeps things shitty and protects Criminals because they give him purpose. He opposes any attempts to actually fix anything, and has nearly killed people who were just trying to protect people by killing the mass murderers.Batman considers mass murderers more important than their victims.
>>122181884Batman is pretty fucked up even if he doesn't kill people. You know what rights POLICE don't have? They don't have the right to break every bone in a criminals body for committing a crime, which Batman routinely does.
>>122181919What's Spider-Man's excuse?
>>122181850Punisher is cooler than those dweebs, and more to the point
>>122181941As I said, go back to reading about your sociopath. "Batman" died by the time they wrote Identity Crisis and then wrote Batman like a lunatic with a spy satellite watching capes.Now it's just the shell of what he's supposed to be.
>>122181850Why? Joker was pretty scared of dying before. He was afraid of Bane, afraid of Red Hood when he started threatening him with a crowbar, hell, even Barbara once scared him during the Death of the Family arc when he realized she's done fucking around and actually has a loaded gun.And he was plenty scared of dying in BTAS (non-canon, I know, but still).
>>122181919I laugh at this shit, the animated movie was way better.
>>122181951At least Spiderman almost attempt to kill his villains every time he is pushed off the edge.
>>122181985>even Spider-Man is dragged through the mud>no heroes can just be reasonable, healthy people who don't want to murder their problems away
>>122181966Oh, you seem to go back far with Batman
>>122181972>things that never happenedWhen he was kidnapped by Jason he was laughing nonstop. Even when Jason had a gun to his head. >>122181919
>>122178439>>122178462>he doesn't like to watch people die>but he will still gladly save the joker from frank knowing that he'll likely kill a hundred people and cripple barbara again while on the way back to his hideout, and batman will have to watch all those dead bodies while investigating because only he can stop the jokerthis is why people dont read capeshit. it's retarded how much willing the writers are gonna go to keep the stupid statuos quo going.
>>122182064Has there been explanation why Joker laughs to pain?
>>122181951He almost killed sin eater during the death of jean dewolff storyline had it not been for daredevil's interference.
>>122176143Cause it honestly proves Batman wrong if someone kills Joker. His whole no killing rule isn't based on what's best for everyone else, it's just giving himself moral justification to be above the law and to beat people up to feel better about himself. Joker gets killed, Gotham actually becomes less of a shit place and it proves that Batman isn't acting for the greater good by letting him live every fucking time he does something abhorrent and then goes on to do it again. Of course this arguement also applies to every retard politican running Gotham for not implementing the death penalty.
>>122182138shit forgive my autism
>>122181009Kill him with a sniper rifle lmao>b-but Batman is afraid of guns!Kill him with a batarang he modifies into a Batkek-seeking drone lmao. He sure as shit doesn't have any hesitation about relying on electrified harpoon traps or having ALFRED use a gun
>>122181884Unlike me, Batman's also fucking wrong about the setting he's in because DC will never, ever kill off the Joker for popularity reasons so the system he operates in is locked into a constant state of no winning.
>>122182301Obviously Joker has secret Jokerdrones with Jokerizer darts hovering around Gotham to get around that.
>>122179661The seeds for Bruce x harley are being groomed for years....
>>122182127Joker has passive awareness he cant die. Think Deadpool but without Constant fourth wall breaks.
>>122182097hey, it is writters blame they cant find out any way to make Joker threatening without him going full Columbine.
>>122183024what the fuck are you talking about
>>122182127He finds suffering funny, whether it be other people’s or his own. It’s something the movie got right about him - he just has a really fucked up sense of humor
>>122181917Based and only right answer
>>122181917essentially Batman cares more about feeling good with himself than about preventing the death of innocent people.Nice here you got there.
>>122176143>dude idealism LMAO
>>122181919my headcanon is that he, as Bruce Banner, gives donations to the police department and the mental health centers, to keep them disfunctional, and they go along with Batman bullshit because they know he's actually bruce banner
>>122178404Yeah. Joker's reaction here is to either laugh in Frank's face or set off the bomb he set in the alley just in case he needs to make a quick escape.
>>122185312>calling Batman Bruce Banner not once but twice
>>122185830its almost like these threads are created by casuals
Because Batman is a mentally retarded manchild. It's one thing to put regular criminals behind bars, but it's another thing to keep letting a mass murdering lunatic on the loose who kills dozens every time he's let out. The most unbelievable part of Gotham City is that a police officer or any of the relatives of Joker's endless sea of victims doesn't just put a bullet in his head.
>>122185830fuck, I even wrote bruce wayne then corrected myself. I should get some sleep
>>122186500>The most unbelievable part of Gotham City is that a police officer or any of the relatives of Joker's endless sea of victims doesn't just put a bullet in his head.Do you know what would happen if they tried? The gun would squirt water, then Joker laughs cause he had replaced all the police guns with water pistols, then kills the cop.
