He sought the chair’s knowledge of the Joker’s true identity but the answer he received was a bigger mystery than the one he wanted solved. Many Batman fans were enraged with the thought of removing the ambiguity out of the Clown Prince of Crime. But it appears that DC isn’t exactly intent on doing that.
