You're missing the point. I never said that the Joker is a Riddler rip-off.
So why are you even discussing this then?

You're getting bogged down in tiny details.
Details are what make the difference.

Tell me why Nolan decided not to use Riddler in TDKR - even though the studio wanted it and Riddler was in the original draft (apparently)?
Because he wanted a villain who could challenge Batman physically. He had not had that yet.

Yes, he may have a point, but we're not supposed to know what it is. Hence, his crimes seem random.
We ALWAYS know what it is because he always says so. Take the story that Batman quote about Joker and his motives is taken from; The Laughing Fish. One of the classics. Joker says he wants to patent fish by making them look like him so he can make a fortune off their sales.
