Maybe the Joke’s on all of us.
#4. Alan Moore Had Batman Kill the Joker and No One Noticed
[In Batman: The Killing Joke] is Batman leaning on the Joker as he convulses with laughter…or is he reaching over to snap his neck? According to comics superstar Grant Morrison, it’s clearly the latter. … As Morrison points out, immediately after the ‘choking’ panel, the laughter comes to an abrupt stop and the comic ends, presumably along with the Joker’s pulse. What’s even more significant is that this reading makes total sense with the themes of the story: The Killing Joke is all about Batman recognizing that he is trapped in an endless, self-destructive cycle with the Joker and doing something to stop it.

You just have to love the optimism here…
Nice, sadly, the collector’s edition statue I got was of Wonder Woman beating Batman’s ass…

Remember, remember the 5th of November. The gunpowder, treason, and plot. I know of no reason why the gunpowder, treason should ever be forgot.
Justice League Unlimited presented two little seen aspects of Batman as those that made him unique amongst the Justice League. First, that he is a man who feels very keenly the pain of children (for obvious reasons), and that he is a man who can’t stand to see a child be completely alone (for the same obvious reasons). Those two details, set in conflict with his obsessive need to be a costumed vigilante, make the subtlest, saddest, and yet one of the most compelling arguments for “why Robin,” in any medium.
(For context, the little girl is Ace, she’s been engineered and raised to be a psychic torture machine. She’s dying because brain overload from evil science. The Justice League understands that they don’t kill her, she’ll leave half a city comatose when she dies. Batman volunteers to go in alone. Instead he sits with her, and she dies calmly, killing no one.)
Oh my god
I remember this episode
Batman’s dog is named Ace.
He named his dog after her.
