I've always wondered just why a criminal organisation would follow a leader in a crazy costume. I mean, sure the money is there, but one would assume that a saner person would try to supplant them so that they weren't laughing stocks.

I can understand the Kingpins but what about Bats rouge gallery, a lot of them seem to be loonies who attract underlings to commit crimes but are constantly being thwarted. At least with a guy like Kingpin he has an established criminal empire and succeeds at commuting crime.

Stop watching the Spiderman cartoons.In the comics hes a really strong normal guy.Spiderman can lift a semi

Anyways in DC theres a thriving market of henchmen work for these sort of guys.Usually guys like Riddler have better than average payoffs and therea a prestige factor too because these guys are usually JUST that good.Sure let a normal guy try and outsmart Riddler and supplant him iim sure he would end up dying some ironically appropriate death in the end

Guys like Joker are probably different.The guys working for him are probably in trouble cant get henchmen work elsewhere or are unhinged themselves

>> No.10212309

2 things:

1. There's one episode of Batman TAS that concerned the Joker basically making a dude his henchman by STALKING THE FUCK OUT OF HIM. The Dark Knight, however, explained that regular crazies (the other patients at Arkham) usually end up in the employ of the masked folks (which would make a lot of sense). For the rest, Gotham's a rough place. If you can't afford medicine for your kid, and your neighbor says he knows a guy who knocked over a clock factory for the Clock King or some shit and walked away with $2,500 without so much as a Robin sighting, you might be tempted. You know, just once.

2. This is more dangerous than you'd think. There's one arc where the Joker decides that the reason Batman always defeats him is not that he's inferior to Batman, but that his henchmen continually fail him. So, naturally, he starts hunting down every henchman he's ever employed and murdering them all. Batman had to save them.

Batman has a never proven IQ drain that only works on his allies. The original JLA has a high incidence of highly trained scientists, super intelligent beings, and mad science. They ALL get stupid when Batman is around.

Not to mention plit induced stupidity is the only way to keep him relevant.A better version of the badass normal gadgeteer type character would be Mr.Terrific from the JSA who manages to be a major character without being overly written up or simply making a supersuit like Stee;/Ironman and turning into a bruiser
