    I'd say it's more the duty of the state than of Batman or Superman to do the chore.


I'd agree with that on a literal level with a couple of caveats:

1) Superheroes (like Superman) often represent "the state" on some abstract level; or actually work with the approval of the state. Superman is deputized and recognized pubic figure. Maybe offing the Joker after he's captured is too far (maybe), but to kill the Joker in self-defense or defense of others is a no-brainer.

2) One of the whole mythical reasons for vigilantes is the need for a lone individual to render justice when society and the state has collapsed into total corruption.
