Re: am I the only one who DIDN'T think Nicholson nailed joker??
No, I'm saying he was after Batman because he dropped him in the chemicals. Sure he may have been annoyed that Batman later stole some of his press, but he wasn't after Batman for that. It was for what he did to him in Axis.
Batman had not been a threat to the mob. Even Grissom never mentioned him. It was Harvey Dent that had them worried. "If he ties us in with Axis Chemicals we're dead and buried. We should move immediately". "Harvey Dent has been sniffing around one of our front companies" etc.
