Both would die, but the Joker would win. Hannibal would kill the Joker early on in the fight, and would prepare him as a meal.
However, Joker spent the day leading up to the fight ingesting enough “Joker Venom,” which he’s built up an immunity to over the years, so his body was practically saturated with the stuff.
Three bites into the meal, Hannibal starts to succumb to the poison, and he suffocates laughing at the Joker’s final joke.
I know a lot of people who watched the Dark Knight Rises and critiqued it by saying “everyone in Gotham is just going to die of radiation poisoning from the fallout of the nuclear bomb that detonated right outside the city”
Except the bomb in the movie was a fusion bomb, and fusion bombs only leave fallout radiation because they use a fission reaction to achieve the levels of heat necessary to create a fusion reaction
And the movie’s bomb was powered by Bruce Wayne’s fusion reactor, which is very explicitly described thusly: “No radiation, no fossil fuels. Free, clean energy for an entire city.”
So while it sounds like they’ve just noticed a glaring plothole, what they’re actually saying is “I wasn’t super duper paying attention during the movie but the screenwriters stepped outside of my very limited understanding of nuclear reactions and I assume that means they wrote the movie poorly.”
Watched “Son of Batman” last night!
Basically I had this idea for a DC animated movie, set in its own isolated continuity. The plot would essentially be this:
Dr. Harleen Quinzel has recently had her license to practice revoked and was fired from Arkham Asylum for engaging in a romantic and sexual relationship with a patient and inmate, the Joker. Falling on some hard financial times, she calls upon her old college roommate, and occasional girlfriend, Dr. Pamela Isley.
Dr. Isley was a prominent botanist and genetic engineer at Powers Industries, until exposure to an experimental mutagen infused her with plant DNA. The main side effects of this were turning her skin green and giving her the ability to synthesize energy from sunlight, but it also left her unable to ingest food normally. Powers Industries let her go to avoid a scandal, and Isley attempted to sue because they’d fired her for a disability that resulted from an accident in the workplace, but they had some of the most powerful attorneys in the world, and she was left unemployed and penniless.
So the two women rekindled their relationship and came up with a business venture: Isley’s last remaining asset was her lab at home, and Harley was an expert in psychiatric medications. Together, they would genetically engineer vegetables that are not only more addictive than cigarettes, but also suppress the instinct to question the ingredients, and compel anyone who eats them to share them with their friends and family and get them hooked as well.
This plan would be a money-making machine that would leave them set for life, and all they needed was some startup money. For this, they turned to the mob, specifically, a new mobster in Gotham who went by the name “Daddy Dark Side.” He gave them a loan, and they used it to purchase a small food truck. The venture was so successful that they were able to pay him back, with interest, within one week.
Daddy Dark Side, however, was not pleased with their repayment. It would, at this point, be revealed that he was actually a puppet bod for Darkseid, an alien warlord who uses a mathematical formula known as Anti-Life to force people to do his bidding. As it turns out, Famous Ivy’s “organic” wraps left anyone who ate them immune to Anti-Life, and beyond Darkseid’s grasp.
As a result, Darkseid hopes to kill Harley and Ivy and destroy their truck until the wraps were out of everyone’s systems and he could once again control whoever he liked.
Harley and Ivy, acting quickly, isolate the part of the vegetables which create an immunity to anti-life, and create a strain of incredibly potent vegetables that will, over the course of a few weeks, replace all vegetation on earth with identical vegetation that shields the population from Anti-Life.
This frees all of Darkseid’s followers from his thrall, and leaves him powerless on earth. Since his vessel’s power is derived from the people he controls, it simply gives out and dies.
However, even though Harley and Ivy are safe, the fact that everyone on earth is eating their vegetables eventually builds up a tolerance, and soon enough, their truck starts losing money. However, they have a new plan for how to stay afloat: They don costumes and embark on a life of crime.

Part of the thing I like about Batman taking Robin under his wing is that he was never inducting Robin into his crusade. Robin was already there, and Batman knew that if that child insisted on walking the same miserable road as him, there was no way he should be allowed to walk it alone.
