I feel like I'm seeing a lot of Batman family vs Joker over the last couple of years. I understand the attraction to using Joker but it seems a bit much to me. With the latest comic covers I just feel its starting to get to the point of saturation. Not everyone will agree. A lot of fans love Joker but I think part of the mythos of a good villain is that the threat of the them is mostly in the background, subtle. So that when they do gain a story focus it adds just that bit more of importance, is more of a shock. Marvel went through a similar thing with Magneto and Apocalyse a few years ago. Too many stories focused on them. I found the impact of their evil diminished. It was like "Them again.. Meh". Lets be honest. There are different classes of villain. Joker is in the major don't-mess-with-this-one-at-anytime category. If you see him messing with everyone on a regular basis I worry that he'll drop down a few levels. Even if he doesn't lose his senior ranking I may ultimately go "Him again?... Meh".
