Why doesn't he kill his foes??

He has stated why he doesn't kill like 40 times...

In short, he doesn't want to stoop to the lows of his villains--he would be no better than they are if he killed.

To separate himself from criminals. But the real reason is because he wouldn't be able to stop killing if he started. He isn't 100% against killing all the time. He was going to kill the joker on at least two occasions. But if he did that, he wouldn't be able to stop. And no killing darkseid doesn't count since darkseid's essense lived on. He doesn't have an issue killing people that come back to life it seems.

You said it yourself

What you're missing is Batman IS a comic. So if Gotham didn't have problems, and cases /situations for Batman to get into and out of, there'd be no reason to publish Batman comics. (And where would DC be without him?). Since he IS a comic, to have him not kill because that's how comics work is a totally legit answer. It's also why Captain America doesn't kill, and Spider-Man and Superman. (As general rules, there are cases for all these characters where that notion has been broken.) In short, he doesn't kill because that's a rule the comics folks have made as part of his personality. You can agree/disagree with his methodology, just as in real life people disagree over the death penalty, but it's part of his characters make-up because the higher-ups at DC say so.

Batman is unstable?? Really?? How??

I am actually saying that he should kill the joker and the other villains . Why should he corrupt officials?? That makes no sense .

Why would people fear batman if he shows them that he is a good guy .

And tell me this .

If batman kills the joker , bane , deathstroke and every other villain , that wouldn't help?? Of course that would help . There would be far far less crime rate and people will think ten times more than they do before committing a crime . And gotham will be safe . And batman's life will become more peaceful .

I don't agree with the "it's a comic" justification. There are good superhero comics that have totally sympathetic protagonists that have been forced to kill from time to time, even though they are completely moral.

The real answer is "because the company line is that the story need to stay always the same". Not all companies choose to do that.

I don't wanna read Batman on a killing spree. But if Batman got pushed to the point were he had to kill, I wouldn't brown my shorts over it. I'm not all for keeping things the same for the sake of tradition. If that happened I think it would open the door for a lot of interesting stories to be told. I still wish Bruce had offed Joker at the end of Death Of The Family.

How is Batman unstable? Let's go through the list:

1. Obsesses over justice to the point of exhaustion and near-starvation.

2. Obsesses over his parents' murder.

3. Trains to the pinnacle of ability.

4. Dresses like a bat.

5. Goes outside the law.

6. Severely injures criminals.

7. Tortures them for information.

8. Trains kids to be soldiers.

9. Cold and distant.

10. Perfectionist.

11. 1,000,000,000 contingency plans.

12. Extreme Paranoia.

Don't you understand? The problem with Gotham is not that there are psychopaths running around. It's that the police department is corrupt. The judges are corrupt. They are in league with the mobs. THESE PEOPLE DO THE MOST DAMAGE!

People fear Batman because he is a vigilante with no real affiliation with the law who goes around breaking due process and bones.

If Batman kills all criminals, then he is no different from Ra's or Lock-Up. Sure, we would be safer, but who's to say Batman is correct? Who's to say that Batman wouldn't go too far? As I said, he isn't stable.

And, if he kills, what separates him from all the psychopaths that kill because they feel they've been wrong. Zsasz is sure, SURE that getting his mark is right. Ra's is SURE genocide is best. Joker is SURE that he is right. If Batman kills, what separates him from the other murderers? He walks a thin line as it is!

It's literally one of the only things separating him from his enemies. He's a cut above so to speak, but his older incarnations have killed in pretty spectacular ways. Now if Gotham was in Texas, I'm sure we wouldn't see nearly as many repeat offenders :D

What about some random thug who's killed ten people? Or one? Then what about sex offenders, thiefs, those people that download movies illeagally??

Okay, that last part was a joke, but I think you get the point I'm trying to make. :P

The only part I take issue with is when he goes out of his way to save someone like Joker. But then you have the whole "if it was in his power to save so-and-so and he chose not to, he might as well have killed him anyway" thing.

Well , he should only kill the main villains like ra's joker bane etc .

LoL

That's the only thing that I hate about batman more than his no killing rule . WTH does he saves joker for?? To escape the jail and try to destroy gotham or kill batman or kill many innocents ?? He should let him die at such points :P

@theamazingbatman:

Bruce's parents were killed. He watched them be killed as a kid, and it broke him - it tore him and made him another man. Bruce isn't angry now, there's no reason for him to kill. He just doesn't want to be as bad as the man who killed his parents. It's simple.
