because you're such a big fan of the Joker and only agree with certain interpretations.
What you mean good and valid interpretations?

No, I just don't like the artistic choices he made. How does that make me prejudiced? Neither did thousands of other Batman fans as evidenced above.

So I guess the Batman fan base is "narrow minded", too

Batman's villains have always metaphorically symbolized a shade of Batman himself, and Burton's films are no different. Batman "created" Joker just as Jack "created" Batman. That's what defines their relationship in these movies. That's why their destines are intertwined.
No, that's how Burton wrote it. Not how it actually is between Batman and Joker. Hence why their relationship for decades was never predicated on it. Nor was it after Batman '89 either.

If it was such an improvement on their relationship as you keep claiming, why did it never get adapted into the comics? It wouldn't be the first time DC took ideas for characterizations from movies or cartoons. Look at Mr. Freeze and Harley Quinn for example.

I'll tell you why, because it's a terrible idea. Or maybe you're just too "narrow minded" to see that?
