Subj: Gotham's "Joker" won't be called "the Joker"

Pretty dumb if you ask me. Why even introduce the character if he's not going to be called the Joker? If he's not going to be called the Joker, then there really is no point in the character showing up. He's just another insane lunatic who laughs a lot. Looks like the show runners just gave us a guy who laughs and looks like the Joker but won't be called the Joker "because he isn't actually the Joker". This makes this nothing more than cleverly disguised fan service by making the fans "think" they got the Joker without actually giving the fans what they want. It's like being given a candy made of carob and being told it's chocolate.

Dumb...just dumb.

It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
