Y'know, seeing this...
I wonder what would have happened when Judge Fear was more like a crazy mash-up of a Boggart and a Dementor, y'know, becoming that what you fear most, with the dementor cranking that up to 9000!!! (lol, no) ...but up to 12.
And then, in the first crossing of ways of meeting Dredd, theBogmentor changes into the Batman. A man who doesn't kill, a man who could defeat superhumans, mutants, aliens, and everything in between. A man who does a Judges job better, faster and without killing and thus having the moral high ground.
In all: Doing a Judges job, without becoming one.
