Why do so many writers like to depict Batman acting tenderly towards a dying Joker?

>Endgame part 6
>Killing Joke
>Arkham City

How can Bruce ignore all the personal trauma Joker's caused?
>>
Has to do with the metafixaction of him being Batman's archfoe. They see that as important so they have Bruce react accordingly. There's no real reason nor justification for it in-universe.

I wouldn't say he was tender in Arkham City. He was just showing everyone that the menace of Joker was over.
>>
>>77775155
>Killing Joke
It's sad how many people completely reinterpret this story from loose memory.

Go read it again. Batman was trying and going to beat the ever living shit out of Joker, the Joker gave up, he wasn't dying or anything he just realized he was not physically capable of stopping Batman from putting him in a full body cast. There's a panel expressly for this.

Batman instead of indulging further pointless violence, didn't act "tenderly", he just asked
>What the fuck was even the point of all this?
And Joker decided since he had lost anyway in more ways than one and was outmatched by Batman and about to be arrested to go out with a joke. Batman was just listening and keeping him in place until the cops showed up.
The morbid analogy about them, not the trauma Joker has caused to others, just happened to be amusing is all.

He treated the body well, cradled him like a baby, didn't drop him to the floor

You're right, I didn't remember it well.

I still can't imagine how anyone could flick from red hot anger to slight amusement so quickly

Who knows half the reasons Bruce does what he does?
>>
>>77775813
I wish he just dropped his body on the police car like in the Arkham Knight prequel comic instead of tenderly placing it there.
>>
>>77775966
He's actually portrayed as kind of insane in KJ whereas everywhere else he's just evil.
>>
>>77775437
He was more upset over Joker being dead than Talia.

The worse one is how Batman keeps dying/retiring in elseworlds shit like he's Superman

>TDKR
>Arkham Knight
>Endgame #6
>>
>>77775155
It's shit in Endgame because Bat's has no reason to be nice to Joker.
It makes more sense in Killing Joke because he wants to help Joker because just beating the shit out of him isn't going to accomplish anything.
