joker is batmans greatest foe. has to be that way in the comics. or did wayne's parents fall off the cliff while snow skying, like all the other senerios you see in comics and movies....THE BATMOBILE LOST ITS WHEELS, THE JOKER GOT AWAY.

i think lil bruce wayne hired a hitman to kill his parents so he could inherit their fortune but after they died he felt guilty so he became batman...makes sense.........the comics always had his parents bein murdered comin outa a movie thearter..where did u get snow sking from?
He was first identified as Joe Chill in Batman #47.
Contrary to what many of the posts in this thread claim Joe Chill remained the name of the killer even after 'Crisis on Infinite Earths' which was published in from 1985-1986.
It was during the 'Zero Hour' series published in 1994 that the name of the killer was temporarily removed.
During the 'Infinite Crisis' published in 2006 it is again established that Joe Chill killed Bruce's parents.
Batman finally confronts Joe Chill in 'Batman' #673 from March of 2008. However, like much of the Grant Morrison run on Batman it is hard to say if the events of this particular issue are real or imagined.
Joe Chill appears again in the post Batman-RIP story 'Whatever Happened to the Caped Crusader'. The events in this story don't actually happen but the appearance of Chill in Batman's mind and Chill's statement that he was present at the birth of Batman further establish that he is the killer.

Oh, good. I loved the story presented in Batman Begins, so I'm glad to hear that that has very offical canon written all over it. That also shows that Nolan did his research, which makes me even more happy.
Does Bruce Wayne get his skills from the League of Shadows in the comics as well? Or, prime answer,
How does Batman Begins compare to the "creation" stories in the comics?
It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.
it doesnt make any sense because those two idiots Burton and Schumacher screwed up those Batman movies not being faithful to the comicbook like Nolan was for the most part.He took liberties as well but not to the extremes those two fools did. You got things mixed up though,in Batman Forever,Two face killed Robins parents which never happened in the comics,Also in Batman 89,The Joker killed his parents which betrayed the comicbook because The Joker did not kill his parents in the comics,it was a criminal named Joe Chill who killed his parents.Thank God for Nolan,he got it right.

Only in the Burton's films, is it established that a young Joker killed Bruce Wayne's parents (and that only happened to give explanations for Jack Nicholson's age.) Virtually every other continuity, it's Joe Chill. Case closed.
