I never want to see Joe Chill with superpowers.

Joe Chill with superpowers would ruin Batman. Why does he even NEED them? To shoot his parents with energy and reduce them to ash so as to never be heard from again?

If he had superpowers, he would be terrorizing Gotham, he wouldn't be reduced to a simple mugging. That's ridiculous.

I'm not sure if it was an other world but Batman tricked him into killing himself, at least that is what the wiki said and they had a picture soooo

I just went through my trade with that story, Batman gives him the gun and Joe states "I can't live like this... How am I supposed to live like this?" while holding the gun and crying. It's never shown if he shoots himself or not though.

I haven't read the book so I could easily be wrong, but I think I remember a picture where Batman stood on the roof smiling as the sound effects of a gun going is shown, which was supposed to imply that Joe killed himself. As I said before I haven't read the book and this could be from somewhere else

Yeah. I just looked at that one too, it's in The Black Glove. Since it's Morrison and Batman was near-death, I'm still unsure whether it happened or not.

I sort of have a hard time believing Batman would drive someone to kill himself, but then again, it is Joe Chill.

@The_Tree: He was smiling? ...Why does that feel unsettling to me?

#14 Posted by hectorsquall (1137 posts) - - Show Bio

@Gambit1024: I'd be smiling too if the guy who killed my parents shot himself because of me. After all he is still human, even if it's The Goddamn Batman.

@hectorsquall: I could see why that'd be a good thing, but... Idk. The idea of Batman smiling after anyone commits suicide is weird to me.

@Gambit1024: He's not really smiling when he hears the gun go off, but he is when he hands Joe the guns and says "Sweet dreams, Joe." But he does look pretty sinister.

@The_Tree: I'm not sure how I feel about that...
