I guess a lawyer could argue insanity what with him being semi possessed by an alien. But honestly hes killed countless people and shows zero remorse.

There's soooo much to write about the way comics abuse the concepts of diminished capacity and insanity to keep villains out of the execution chamber. Batman's book is hardly to blame on that score, as such tricks were being done back in the Golden Age when Batman's own villains were, with the exception of Two-Face and some other accident-victim types, treated as totally sane and sent to regular prisons.

In fact, the Joker actually had a story in the 1950s that had him faking insanity in order to be committed to an asylum!

Say, wasn't this Marvel board once upon a time? I think I took a wrong turn at Albuquerque.
