My point of view is different. The Joker did not win, because Batman decided to put the blame of Two-Face murders, keeping the criminals in jail and Gotham's soul at peace. But that doesn't mean Batman came up literally triumphant either. It was a sacrifice, it didn't matter what happened to him if that meant keeping Gotham safe. He won by losing, if that makes sense.
A hero can be anyone. Even a man doing something as simple and reassuring as putting a coat around a young boy's shoulders to let him know that the world hadn't ended.
