Classic debate: Is the Joker redeemable?

U all have most likely had this discussion before, but I gotta ask- if captured, should the Joker be put to death? And if the government were to decide to kill him via capital punishment, would Batman intervene?

I would say give him a fair trial, even if he’s guilty.

Well, he was born into this world, so hopefully the world did not create a being that is incapable of redemption. The best way to find out is if he would ever share his childhood with someone (even if the audience/reader doesn’t know). If he shares, he is redeemable. If not, then there is unfortunately no hope for him.

The Joker is an overrated circus act. Harvey should have left the acrobats alone and took out the clown!

@Reaganfan78 okay. But if the fair trial resulted in him getting the death penalty? Would u agree with that? And should the Bat rescue him since it breaks his no killing rule?

@The Riddler I don’t completely disagree, but should Harley be the one to do it?

@Harleys Puddin so does the Joker have any regrets? Any particular deaths that truly bother him?

I have no conscience, no regrets. Maybe just one, but then I laugh it off!

Joker has to have a conscious, otherwise he just an empty vessel possessed by an evil entity.

@abfgmsw, to regret is to show weakness, why would I do that?

@Harleys Puddin well if that’s true, then no judge is gonna think you’re worth saving. Hate to say it but you’re likely to be executed if captured…

Regret actually shows strength. It means you have grown from doing a bad deed and recognizing that you can be better.

Also, I forgot to include an “is” in my last post.

If the state did it then I think Batman would just let it be.

No…

Would I get death by crowbar, @Redhood? HAHAHAHA

Can one redeem a force of nature meant to push heroes forward into their best true selves?

I think it depends on the version we’re talking about. Maybe the 66 can be redeemed, and White Knight shows a redeemed Joker. The regular, Prime Earth Joker? Hell no.
