i thought it fitting, dispite mark never actually doing the monologue
by far one of my favorite joker stories

Mark retired from voicing the Joker after Arkham City, so if we ever want to hear this speech, I think it'll have to be John DiMaggio

actually mark said he'd come back to do the killing joke, although it'll probably be a while before he does it, since DC is focusing on animating DKR at the moment
here's to hoping though

oh ****, what was I thinking?
I love that. It's my second favorite Batman comic
Year One, then Dark Knight Returns
those two comics completely sum up everything Batman is.

really does man
it's a batman comic as it should be
i also use it as a reference in the arguments of why batman would beat superman in a fight

lol that's a terrible reference for that argument
Batman dies in that fight
batman's better than Superman because he loses that fight
Being the better hero isn't about being a god, it's about being awesome
Batman could win any fight, but he'd have to be less Batman and more Deathstroke
like when he just straight up shoots Darkseid. He draws a gun faster than the speed of light, cocks it, and shoots Darkseid before his eye lasers can reach him.
It was awesome, but it wasn't really in the spirit of Batman

dude i completely agree
i use it as a reference, not because of who actually wins the fight, but because it wasn't about winning but about sending a message
Batman is the only person who can beat the everloving **** out of Superman just to send a message
if he wanted to, he could have won that fight hands down, but he wasn't trying to win, which makes it all the more awesome
And i final crisis really threw me off because of Batman shooting Darkseid, it was too out of character for Batman to be using guns in the first place

Plus, the skill with which he handles that gun really messed with me
When I read that, I was thinking, "why the hell is Batman so good with that gun?"
he must practice sharpshooting a lot for someone who doesn't like guns

well he is Batman so that automatically makes him the best at everything forever so I imagine the writers were banking on that
personally i think they weren't really thinking about the character but more-so on the impact that Batman's "death" would have on the DCU
