One of the things that annoys me about super heroes is the old adage: heroes never kill villains no matter how evil they are. This would be unseemingly because it would make the hero no better than the villain.
But come on...where do you draw the line here? Take Batman for example...I think every time the Joker or Two Face kill someone Batman is partly to blame. Why? Because he constantly catches these guys and instead of finishing them he locks them up someplace like Arkham Asylum knowing FULL WELL that within weeks those psychopaths will escape and kill again!!
How many times has he stopped the Joker? How many more times before he realizes that no prison will hold him and no one will reform him?
And about heroes not killing because that would put them in the same moral level as villains...I call BS on that. If a child kills a child molester no one argues that they are morally the same. We clearly accept that one acted in a moral way and the other did not.
If Batman grabbed the Joker and dropped him off a tall building to his demise below I would applaud him. He just saved hundreds of future victims.
