DESPITE FIERCE competition from a colorful Rogues Gallery that is arguably the best in comics, The Joker will continue to stand alone as Batman's No. 1 adversary. "That seems to be the case," said Image Comics' Erik Larsen. "Not for any thematic reason - he's not a mirror image of Batman or any of that nonsense - it's more a sense of him being the coolest character of the lot. " "No doubt," said 12 Gauge Comics' Keven Gardner. "Batman is order and The Joker lives to create chaos.

'CRIMINALS, hear me loud, hear me clearly: There is law and order in New Orleans," said Louisiana Gov. Kathleen Blanco. After a bloody weekend in which six people were killed in population-depleted New Orleans, Mayor Ray Nagin had had it. He asked the governor to send in the National Guard to help police get a handle on the violence - and she did. Maybe that's exactly the kind of bracing, real-life solution the mayor of our own violence-weary city...

LIVERPOOL, ENGLAND SLAIN TOT TO BE BURIED TODAY Two weeks after his grisly murder sparked a bitter debate over law and order in Britain, 2-year-old James Bulger was to be buried today in this rundown northern English city. The little boy was murdered after he was separated from his mother in a shopping mall. He was last seen - on security videotapes - being led away by two older boys. Two 10-year-olds have been charged with his murder. Bulger's funeral will be held at the Sacred Heart Church in the poor Kirkby area of Liverpool.

IWHOLEHEARTEDLY agree with Robert Ziemba in his letter "Natural doesn't equal appropriate" (Oct. 8). S. Epatha Merkerson plays a police lieutenant on "Law and Order. " In real life, she wears baby dreds, on the show she rocks the straight wig. Her employers dictate the hairstyle, and she wears the wig proudly. As a black woman who chooses to wear her hair straight, the type of hairstyle I wear does not make me any blacker than the next person who does not share my views. As Mr. Ziemba stated, we must make accommodations for the job we choose to take.

I'VE READ several letters regarding the need and purpose of a black caucus in the state legislature. There are many ethnic and non-ethnic caucuses: Democratic, Republican, coal, Irish, Italian, sportsmen and veterans. They discuss legislation that would affect their constituents. I support the Pennsylvania Black Caucus because I understand their need to get legislation passed for the restoration of law and order in the inner cities for the masses of law-abiding, tax-paying, voting, concerned citizens all over the commonwealth.

Your front page story Jan. 12 exposing the frightening epidemic of young, black, male homicides has the root of the solution buried within it. Judges, professors and doctors should re-read the words quoted from Sharon McCray, sister of two men dead by violence and another awaiting sentencing for fratricide. She says, "We didn't have a fatherly figure in the house. . . . It's hard to raise a whole lot of kids, especially bigheaded boys, with no fatherly figure. " Is it male irresponsibility, either by neglect or bastardy, that also removes a built-in biological crime deterrent from the family - the father?

THE STERLING image enjoyed by Archbishop Desmond Tutu shall be forever tarnished, given that he's using a trip to Pennsylvania to visit with Mumia Abu-Jamal, the convicted murderer of Philadelphia Police Officer Daniel Faulkner. Tutu is seen by many as a man of peace and goodwill. Apparently those admirable traits are not extended to the family of Officer Faulkner. There should be no welcome mat for Tutu as he comes to our state to stick his thumb in the eye of society through a blatant and callous contempt for law and order and the proper administration of justice.

It is infuriating and depressing that rampaging mobs of young hooligans have trashed yet another Center City celebration. Hundreds converted a parade to honor Julius Erving into a nightmare of looting and violence. Their behavior demeaned the salute to Mr. Erving and hurt the reputation of the city. There is no excuse for it. All arrested for Monday's acts of wanton vandalism should be prosecuted. Perhaps the saddest thing is that this happens with appalling regularity in Philadelphia.

On Jan. 6, nearly three years after Texas jurors sentenced Andrea Yates to life in prison for drowning her children, an appeals court overturned the conviction and ordered a new trial. The three-judge panel in the First Court of Appeals cited false testimony by the state's psychiatrist - testimony that, by affecting how the jury deliberated, may have violated the defendant's rights. Who was actually to blame for this error? It is a bit of a mystery. But who is ultimately responsible is not. Expert witnesses should take care to ensure the veracity of their statements - especially in capital cases.

George Bush may be trying to distinguish himself from President Reagan on the campaign trail, but in the process he is sounding a lot like former President Richard M. Nixon in one key respect. It was Nixon, running for president in 1968, who used "law and order" rhetoric on the heels of urban riots to rally white voters against Democrats whom he suggested were soft on crime. Now, in a strategy many political analysts say could backfire, Bush is trying to cast himself as the modern-day champion of law and order and paint his likely Democratic rival, Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis, as a liberal who is soft on crime.

BEN Bernanke exits his two terms as Fed chief this week generally regarded as the wonky econ nerd and student of the Great Depression who used his megamind to save our collapsed economy. He's credited with taking drastic action to restore some semblance of confidence in the financial system, and this he did. He bought up $4 trillion in mortgage bonds and securities from the big banks, shored up their balance sheets, paid off their worthless IOUs (the AIG bailout) and in the process kept rates low to help goose our anemic recovery.

Charles J. Musumeci had a resumé to make your head spin. It was not top-heavy with titles, not burnished with awards. Rather, it defined a venturesome spirit, best known as "Moose," who wasn't content to do just one thing in life, or even a half-dozen things; who got creative with his 58 years and, it is said, had a smile on his face from start to finish. At Cherry Hill High School East, Mr. Musumeci substitute-taught any subject; coached baseball, cross-country and cheerleading; coordinated standardized testing, and directed student plays.

As the sun sets on Election Day less than two weeks from now, look to the skyline for smoke around City Hall, for we are about to witness the greatest burning of dead wood in City Council's long and undistinguished history. On Nov. 8, voters will select replacements for six Council incumbents who will have collectively held office for 128 years by January. Few will notice their absence. With one or two exceptions, they have done little except further cement the public perception that Council is, as former Mayor Bill Green succinctly put it, "the worst legislative body in the free world.

Though it probably wasn't the first time they'd been told that "a split-second choice can change everything," students at Haddon Township High School were sent that message powerfully Friday from those who know firsthand. At the school's third presentation of Project P.R.I.D.E. (Promoting Responsibility in Drug Education) - just a week before the prom - students in grades nine through 12 heard the hard truth from three people behind bars for vehicular homicide. "I took someone's life.

By Silvio Laccetti The boys are back in town. So are the girls. With their testosterone-fueled tantrums and hormonal hysteria, the cast of MTV's Jersey Shore recently returned to Seaside Heights, and there was trouble soon after they set foot on the sand. Cast member Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi was arrested for disorderly conduct; news reports say she was unbelievably inebriated. Then, last week, co-star Ronnie Ortiz-Magro was hauled to police headquarters for outstanding warrants.

Chester County's district attorney made an unusual job offer yesterday - urging citizens to join his staff of crime-fighters to maintain community safety. The invitation comes with a hitch: The positions are volunteer. So even though they might satisfy CSI cravings, they won't pay any bills. "I can't offer much in the way of a tangible reward beyond some tokens of appreciation," Joseph W. Carroll wrote in a news release. "But I can guarantee that the opportunity to do important public service work that helps keep our community safe will bring a sense of satisfaction that money can't buy. " Of course, it was money - or lack thereof - that motivated his request.

FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover once said justice is incidental to law and order. Similarly, when it comes to our police force, keeping order on the street doesn't necessarily foster a culture of mutual respect. The balance between order and respect is even more delicate when it comes to policing teenagers. An alarming number of the adolescents I teach admit in class discussions that they don't like cops. Many feel regularly disrespected by police, and complain that cops are always "in their face" when they're talking on a street corner, for example, or congregating at a playground.
