(Continued from part 1, part 2, part 3)

This is a conclusion to my ongoing mini-series about Batman and the ethics of killing the Joker. We first look into one last popular justification for the famous "one rule", and then propose an altogether unsatisfactory way of making sense of all this mess.

Reason 3 for not killing- Unforeseen consequences

Batman, despite being the symbol of ethical excellence that he is, has a major flaw in his moral reasoning: his refusal to kill the Joker. Parts 2 through 4 of this series are dedicated to looking at some of the ethical justifications usually given for this. My plan is to demonstrate that none of these reasonings hold water, and by not killing the Joker, Batman is ultimately flaunting his moral duty.

Batman is without a doubt my favorite superhero.

Long-time Batman fans would know the point of Batman isn't someone who's a 'hero' in the sense of being a glorified problem solver.
