Before I start, I know, I know, it's a comic book it's a fictional story and without the villains, it ceases to be interesting. But have they ever explained in the batman series, why there is no death penalty?

It'll illegal to kill those not mentally capable of understanding the weight of their actions, aka the whole insanity thing.

If there was a death penalty Batman would have nothing to do.


What's his stand on the death penalty anyway?

@Gambit1024: you may be right - I don't remember any reference to his stance now that I think about it.

He as Bruce Wayne would probably lobby against it being implemented, and we all know money talks. Besides it isn't the city that gets to decide it's the state isn't it? Where's Gotham these days? New Jersey?

Yeah I just finished Arkham Asylum, and was thinking man, Batman could make his life way easier if they just snuffed some of these fools.

@sagesebas: Kinda the defining factor is that he doesn't kill.

it worked in Justice Lords world. Poison Ivy as a gardener, Joker as a superintendant of Arkham Asylum.
And Doc Savage used brain surgery to "fix" his villains too.

It'd be interesting to see what Batman would do without any villains to fight.

Would'nt matter to me much cause my favourite batvillians like Ra's and Bane barely get caught  in the first place.

In The Joker: Devil's Advocate, Joker was about to be executed for a crime he did not commit but was saved by Batman. I would imagine that had to be very agonizing for Bruce to do.

I don't know if they ever explained why they don't use it but all I know is that I think Joker should put some place he could never escape. I mean he has escaped from Arkham several times and yet, they keep putting him in the same place. Isn't this clear to anyone else! They should move him to a place that has more security or... /\/\/\/\__________ KILL HIM!

As Aztek said, a lot of them are considered legally insane. But even if they weren't, death penalty isn't something that happens the day after they get caught. A lot of years pass until they are finally executed. What stops them from escaping again in that time?
