For me, the Riddler steps on to the stage

and challenges that fundamental element...

...of Batman's capabilities that needs

to be there almost more than any other.

I mean, that's Batman's superpower.

He's the greatest detective of all time.

The relationship between a villain

and their rival is more complicated...

...than a question of right

versus wrong, good versus evil.

Together, they form a dynamic

that is, at times, interdependent.

A villain cannot exist without a

hero and a hero, his or her villain.

They're in a symbiotic relationship in that

if the villains were to do off the hero...

...I think they would probably

find themselves a little listless.

When we did "Death of

the Family" story...

...he comes at Batman saying, Deep

down, we really love each other. "

And, of course, Batman says, "I hate

nothing more on the earth than you, Joker. "

The Joker feels that the family that Batman

has built around him all these years... dragging him down.

He says, These people

are draining your soul.

These other members, they're

sucking the life out of you.

I'm your friend. I wanna make

you be the best that you can be... that we can both have a relationship

that we could enjoy for so many years...

...without these knuckleheads on

the side constantly draining you.

And so I'm gonna take care of them for you,

and I will wipe out all these family members... you can be free

of their encumbrance. "

What the Joker, at his

core, is saying is that:

"You might not love us

the way that we love you...

...or you might not want to admit

you love us the way we love you.

This rogues' gallery that you have,"

he's like, "All of us love you.

All of us are here only to
