Batman is, hands down, one of the most popular superheroes of all time. His grizzled demeanor and willingness to do what it takes to save Gotham is truly astounding. And he does it all without any special powers whatsoever. His rogues gallery is probably the best to ever hit the panels of a comic book. Personally, he's my favorite hero of all time.
But as any self-respecting Batman fan will tell you, the Dark Knight operates under one rule and one rule only- he never takes a life. It serves as some of the greatest points of contention throughout his struggles with many villains. They constantly use his love of life against him, which is probably why all the baddies keep coming back to give Gotham City a hard time.
However, just because it's his one rule, doesn't mean that he hasn't broken it before. Yes, friends, the Caped Crusader has taken many lives before, despite the current media telling you otherwise. It's happened in comics, and film alike, and there's no denying that because of it, Batman could have more of a sadistic nature than we would like to admit. Sure he's not known to openly slaughter the Joker in the comics, but that would make too much sense now, wouldn't it?
Prepare yourselves for a shocking revelation about Hollywood's most beloved superhero. Here are 10 times when Batman broke his one rule.
10 Crushing With Cars
9 Grinding Gears
8 Hanging On High
7 Leaving Ra's al Ghul
6 Acid Bath
5 Human Shield
4 Dropping a Statue
2 Shooting Darkseid
1 Dropping the Clown
The 1989 Batman film is definitely a contender for the best in the entire franchise. In that movie, Batman isn't afraid to take a life, more notably, the life of his adversary. While we've all got The Dark Knight Joker fresh in our minds, many people forget exactly how Michael Keaton stopped Jack Nicholson's Joker. Dropping him off a building. Once he faced the Joker, he even told the evil clown "I'm going to kill you." Then in the end, he does just that by throwing him off of the tower used in their climactic battle. And you didn't feel a thing, unlike in Arkham City.
