I think the Joker would be happy if Batman died. Then he’ll go unhappy wondering what happened to Bruce Wayne as well as wonder what to do next.
I’ve been glad; now I’m really glad I was automatically subscribed to “FoxTrot Classics”.
God, like a parent knows what his children will do, lets us make our decisions but knows exactly what they will be. Thus free will and predestination.
If we are granted free will, why are we punished when we exercise it?
It’s already been established, as part of DC continuity, that the Joker will never kill Batman, or try to find out his identity. He actually enjoys his fights with Batman and would be devastated if he died.
Peter may be a big-bang denier, or may believe that everything in the universe has causation except for the origin of the universe.
“I envisioned a world without Batman and it was so…..boring.”
I used to have a teacher who’s favorite saying was, “Your free will to punch me in the face ends where my nose begins.” As high school students, we were able to comprehend such things, go figure.
This certainly got too deep for me…

great ’toons invoke great conversation . . . this cartoon is the opposite of amusement.
Would the Joker be happy if Batman died?No, he would not
If I had a friend who had a habit of climbing the tree outside his house every day, even though it’s dangerous to do so, I could easily wake up one morning and thing “Gee, I bet that friend of mine is going to climb the tree again”. If I was right, I would not be violating my friend’s free will by accurately predicting what he was going to do. And it wouldn’t be my fault, nor would I be “punishing” my friend for “exercising his free will”, if he fell off the tree and got hurt, even if I had, say, planted or placed the tree there in the first place.
Analogies have a tendency to not “measure up” to that which they describe. It’s kind of the point.
If batman died, Joker would be happy because he had finally succeeded in what he had been trying to do for decades, then sad, because he could no longer be able to try to kill batman, then happy again because Dick Grayson would take over the roll.
