Let’s face it folks. This rivalry has been going on for way too long. We’ve seen too many movies, read too many comics, and have written just too many theories when all along we should have realized that the answer was right in front of us the entire time.
There’s a reason these two never killed each other. There’s a reason both of these guys are putting on such a spectacle around each other. It’s not to protect the city. It’s not to destroy the city. In fact it’s got nothing to do with morality or insanity.
It has everything to do with the one common emotion that can drive all of us over the edge. It has to do with love. The Joker and Batman are no different than any other couple do anything and everything they can to get each other’s attention. This comic illustrates it beautifully. I will say this though
No judgement or anything, but please stop blowing up half the city to get the guy’s attention will ya?
