    ...do you prefer? Not the person himself, but the background?
    -A criminal sent out by a mastermind to specifically murder the Waynes, as presented in the comics.
    -A random thug committing a random robbery, a la B89.
    -A humanized down-on-his-luck man affected by an economic depression just trying to get by, as presented in BB?

    Vote and discuss.

    I'm kinda torn between the first and third one.

    current status quo: Joe Chill was a random mugger in the DCU
    I prefer that.

    The first answer was the silver age/bronze age one, when Lew Moxon ordered the kill after the first batman escaped him.

    ^^^ not having actually read any current stories (other than one-shots), i wasn't aware of that. thanks. i guess that would go with the second choice then.

    let's keep the silver/bronze age one in there just to have that extra choice.

    Is this a refrance to the Tim Burtand 89 Batman movie????

    The reason I ask is because in that movie Bruce's parents were killed by Jack Napier who would become the Joker not Joe Chill.

    ^^^i know that...i was just asking if you might prefer that TYPE of character (a random thug, not Jack Napier) in that style, as opposed to the others.

    Joe In Batman 89? That's the Joker
    I hate HATE that version
    Joe In the Comics was just a average thug in moden times
    Silver age he was Hired
    but either way the comics were the best
    Batman Begins was good
    except someone killed joe which I didn't like
    I would of liked to him get off and disappear
    so Batman would never know where he is
    but I understand in "movies" you need to change this
    but the comic book version is the best

    average criminal just mugging someone and killing them, never knowing what he'd create

    uh I hate Batman 89 because Joker made batman.....so corny

    if you read my posts, you will see that i was not referring to him as the guy who became the joker, just someone that was LIKE jack in the fact that he was a random thug.

    I like the current status quo. With Joe being a random mugger and nothing more. That works for me.

    thank you, 2000. i was about to flip my lid.

    oh, off topic, 2000. how do you pronounce where you're from. my in-laws, who are from long island, say it's pronounced "rock-chester", which i have never heard of. i say it's "ra-chester". they say it's a regional thing. do you pronounce it "rock" or ever heard it that way?

    Random mugger. And I didn't really see a humanized Joe in Batman Begins, that was just sleazy defense attorney speak.
