Would you like Joker to die?

Okay, I know I'll have lots of hate-response for this, but whatever.

So, 2014 will be year of Batman 75th Anniversary, and I believe it's time to give Clown Prince to die new character evolution. As we know in One Million universe there's a character Laughing Virus, who appears to be ghost of the Joker, who was murdered in 21st century, and Batman failed to save him. So, would you like Joker to die and transform into something new? If you do, then who should kill him? And who should take a mantle of Clown Prince?

Nope... Joker shouldn't/couldn't/won't die. Nothing else will be the same and honestly, after 73 years, Joker is still insanely epically awesome.

@joygirl:

Okay, then how will you prolong his life, lazarus pit-baths, new body (poor Tim) or something else? By the way, do you think he should have his face back?

Why would you want to kill off arguably the best villain in comics?

I don't want him to die, but I want him to see fear, true fear and not laugh when superman punches a hole in his gut. I want to see him actually afraid. TAS one was less insane than the comic one, and has displayed fear of dying.

There was an issue, teen titans annual or something like that (pre new 52). Raven tried to scare Joker, yeah he had fears, he just finds them funny, so he was crying laughing. But I agree would love to see him afraid. Like when Batman Impostor shoot him in the face.

He's old enough (outside of new 52 stupid time line). Besides he still needs to die in 21st century, so why not on anniversary? And that wouldn't be completely killing, just character evolution.

Maybe finds the Philosopher's Stone or sells his soul for immortality or something. And yeah he definitely needs his face back.

Yeah, I think he should.

Maybe a fake death at the hands of Damian.

@joygirl Or just make another reboot with everyone young.

Unfortunately I kinda agree, don't see any writer at DC to kill off Joker yet. But I really thought that Snyder would kill him in №17 especially with that One Million reference in №13. But no, he just ruined him.

@shrinkagenecrosis: I actually thought DotF was good until the end. But yeah, the end ruined it all.

@joygirl I really hated how he made him from Batman's archnemesis into just master planner. I mean, he made him absolutely incapable of fighting. He punched him just once, ONCE, and yet Bruce was paralyzed. And this is for a character who once took on Justice league alone.

Joker needs to die at the same time as Batman in a fight against each other, that will be the only acceptable death for the Joker (To me)
