as much as i would hate to see the clown prince of crime die, I think it would make a great story. Like Joker killed another Robin (Tim Drake or maybe a newer one) and Batman lost it and killed him out of Rage. Or maybe Jason Todd could finally get his revenge. I think if the death of the Joker makes a good story i would be ok with it. What do you think?
Put Joker up against Superman for three seconds with no prep and no editorial protection ("We can't let him die! He makes us so much cash!") and he is dead. As hell. "
Yeah you don't say. How does that in anyway detract from Joker as a villain?"
It limits the amount of credible stories you can write with him outside of a Batman comic. "
I don't know about that, Joker has genius level intelligence so a good writer can write what I is considered a "credible" story in a comic book, not sure I have read to many of those to be honest. Joker is primarly a Batman villain and that is where he is at his brilliant best. Dude's who are super powerful are great and they have their place, but whats even scarier is a normal ass dude who is crazy enough to take on earths greatest heroes.
100% think your right. if anyone here has read last laugh, then that proves it isn't as easy as it looks to take down one ordinary guy, even for superman and umpteen other heroes put together! that story was "credible" ,and is among other credible storys involving joker and super powerd heroes (eg. Empreror Joker)
