Maybe not, but what about the planet's other cities? Joker would like to see the whole world burn, but I never got the sense that the LOS was intent on destroying, say Honolulu. Kinda makes a huge lot of difference if you happen to live in Honolulu.
If Heath Ledger had lived, do you think the third film would have been called Joker Does Honolulu?

Agreed, but a movie with one-dimensional villains is rarely "deep" or "sophisticated".
How "deep" or "sophisticated" is a conflicted villain by virtue of being fashionable?

I forgot about it because it wasn't important.
It suddenly becomes important again when you start talking about the character having no humanity.

He proves to be a total monster, yet still comes across as more sympathetic than any of Nolan's big baddies, because, as monstrous as he may be, he at least believes in something[/URL] - a world free of human-on-mutant oppression.
If only Nolan's villains believed in something, such as a world free of corruption, or, failing that, free of Gotham.
