Well, Superman's willpower > Batman. This was shown in "Emperor Joker", correct? Batman eventually broke (albeit, several hundred years/deaths later or some shit), but Supes held on juuust a little longer.

It's actually even more embarrassing for Batman than that.

I mean, all props to him for holding on as long as he did, and keeping it together long enough to help Superman win, but ultimately the trauma was too much for him and at the end of the story the Spectre was asked, by Superman, to place all of that trauma into him, because otherwise Batman would have been a broken shell of a man.

The story ends with Superman going to see Lois to be his rock, and a more charitable person to Loeb would posit the possibility that he was making the very important point that a good woman/strong family ties can help a man through anything, and that was the fundamental difference as to why Superman could deal with what Batman could not.

But nah.
No clue why this isn't in the thread proper, but when I click reply, it's there.

SO HENNYWAYS

I can only see it if I click reply, or quote someone and then look at prior posts.

Going through the thread on my own, I see nothing.

Plus with his skills and resources no one would ever find out he did it

"Could Batman commit a crime so perfect even Batman couldn't solve it?" is the nerd equivalent of "could God create a boulder so heavy even he couldn't move it"

Batman can't even keep his identity secret. How many fucking people in DC know he's Wayne? A dozen? More? He'd let it slip at some point.

Whoa...cool idea!
Seriously Bats should build a prison cell in the cave specifically just for The Joker.
Monitor him 24/7 & try & rehabilitate him personally.
Hell, keep him in an induced coma!

I like this idea.  Do to Joker what the Mad Hatter did to Bruce in that episode of BTAS.  And even if Joker can eventually figure out he's in a dream, surely Bruce can enhance the tech so it keeps wiping his mind of that fact and keeping him locked in the dream state.
Truten forever!

Those two solutions are rife with problems

Monitor and try to rehabilitate Hannibal Lecter? Stupid

Put him in a dream? Stupid. He'd figure it out, and then he would want out, and then he would get out

This has been happening sporadically to me as well.  Hopefully they can figure out the glitch soon.
