Actually it's implied a lot, especially in the Alan Moore and Grant Morrison runs, that there are some awkward homoerotic things going on there...

But in the Arkhamverse it comes down to the simple rule that the Joker is Batman's responsibility, as a villain that he played a part in creating, and thus his to 'take care of'. There's also the obvious fact that some things about the Joker and his Titan and such don't need to get out.

Thalia, on the other hand, commands a legion of super-ninjas with the power to bring her back to life virtually whenever they need to, IF they need to. Heck they even remove Ras' body from where it got impaled. She's fine.


Grant Morrison was a nutjob who couldn't tell a decent story. He wanted the Joker in drag for the Arkham Asylum graphic novel, which is btw the most over rated comic book of all time.

Otherwise I'm with ya on all points.

Talia was picked off the floor before you start duking it out with Clayface, Batman didn't have anyone else to carry out. Besides that carrying scene goes all the way back to the first scene of the game, where you see the painting of Kain and Abel. It's some very nicely done symbolic stuff.

Symoblically and literature device wise, it was amazing.

Plot wise, it's very confusing. I think we'll have to wait for future DLC/games to really comprehend the relationship between the Joker and Batman

Did you really just insult Grant Morrison? Really?

Am I wrong? What work has he done that wasn't just ridiculous and over the top. He has cool ideas, like the idea that Batman has a "back up operating system", but he tells terrible stories

Frank Miller put all the nails in Robocops coffin.

and is ARKHAM ASYLUM the novel the one in which Joker grabs Batman on the butt, to have Bruce only respond with "Take your filthy hands hands off of me!"? Yikes, that was odd.

That quote was from the novel, but I think he directs it at some diseased person who is supposed to be a representation of Clay-Face or something to that extent.

No clue what you're talking about with the butt grab
