I dont understand your gripe with giving him an origin. Sure I cant think of, if they even did make him an origin in any of the comic-verses or cartoons and such, but I think it adds to the rogues gallery of villains they can bring in when they want to, as well, they couldnt have just brought the Joker in as the Joker yet, and having such an interesting psychopath on the cast makes for fun TV in my opinion. I am just wondering what direction they are going to take Gotham. As much as I love it how it is, following Gordon and Bruce back in their early days, I really wanna see how it would pan out into Batman stories. I am pissed that I dont get to see the future of this universe, with Batman, Joker, Penguin, and all the villains in their full glory.
