DC Comictician thought of the week:
In the post, Evil Everywhere Pt. 2, my friend Rosie asks:
"Perhaps this is Captain Boomerang's attempt at redemption of some sort. Perhaps he's launching a war against vile, evil pittage."
Before we begin, we must understand that Rosie is an Anime'itheist, a mystical faith from the far east that doesn't have any real boundaries when comes to right and wrong. Unless we're talking about Catwoman, these boundaries are clear to those who practice DC Comictology. Frankly, I'm glad my exposure to Anime'itheism is limited because it all sounds so confusing when you've been raised to know the Truth. But as with those Marvel-ous people like Anne, we must learn to hate the comics, but not the comic fans.
It's not unusual for those outside the fold to wonder if Captain Boomerang, the Penguin, Black Manta or the Cheetah can be reformed. But those of us who are familiar with the scriptures realize that they're is no saving these evil-doers. Arkham punishes, they do not reform.
In Batman 1:87, the Bat tells us:
"You played your last hand, Joker"
There is no sound of forgiveness as Batman takes down the Joker.
And Batman 1, Frame 89 explains the true nature of the supervillian:
But even as Bruce speaks, at the state prison, the Joker is plotting another for his escape! "They can't keep me here! I know a way out- the Joker will yet have the last laugh"
I think the Word is is very clear about this. There is no saving the Riddler or Toyman, but it's not too late for non-believers, Marvelites and Anime'itheists to accept Supergirl into their hearts and know that Batman, Robin, Batgirl, Zatanna, and Nightwing are the true saviors of Gotham.
So please, step into the light; don't let the Joker have the last laugh.
