    Instead, the Joker flanked by an army of "Jokerized" supervillains launches a final crime spree. This is because he tricked Superman into killing his own wife Lois Lane and nuking Metropolis, then pulling a Strike Me Down with All of Your Hatred on the poor guy who that set him on the path to becoming a tyrant, and for what reason? When the supervillain then tries to destroy the universe, his reluctance to eliminate Batman makes him lose control, and Superman defeats him. The supervillain returns in "The Clown at Midnight" as a cruel, enigmatic force who awakens and tries to kill Harley Quinn to prove to Batman that he has become more than human. The murders are condemned by billionaire mayoral candidate Thomas Waynewho calls those envious of more successful people "clowns.

    Building off of that, his plans weren't really "insane" until the Silver Age at which point it's not even fair to say this was exclusive to himnor was there any question of the character's mental stability. The Scorsese connection is pretty pronounced - which isn't surprising, since Martin Scorsese was attached to the film as a producer, early on in the process not anymore though. Superman's powerful will allows him to fight off the Joker's influence enough to make contact with the weakened Mxyzptlk, who along with a less-powerful Spectreencourages Superman to work out the Joker's weakness before reality is destroyed by the Joker's misuse of Mxyzptlk's power. Although the Joker refuses, he shows his appreciation by sharing a joke with Batman.

    It depicts him as originally being an engineer at a chemical plant who quit his job to pursue his dream of being a stand-up comedian, only to fail miserably. The last or so get 5 stars. At these moments, the Joker is depicted as expressing remorse for his acts; [] [] however, during a medically induced period of partial sanity in Batman: Cacophony he tells his opponent, "I don't hate you 'cause I'm crazy. To him, it's all just part of the joke.

The joker book

It is suggested that the Joker is sane, and feigns insanity to avoid the death penalty. In fact, part and parcel of what makes the Joker's plans devastating is The joker book he knows how to hide the punchline for lack of a better word.

While it is unlike other films in the shared big screen universe by existing in its own space, it is also different in every other imaginable way -- from all comic book movies before it.

The Joker helped free the original Dark Judges in exchange for immortality. Then we hit the millennium and it was like the writers said "You thought that was evil?

It's not completely free of ties to a larger world but it has no desire to set any stage for future installments, spinoffs, sequels, or expansions -- which is almost a shame given how great of a launch it is for a compelling character.

In one issue of New 52he claims to have been driven insane by an abusive grandmother, who also bleached his skin to its present pallor. The accident also drives Luthor insane, and he attempts to destroy Gotham City with an army of thugs, but is stopped by Batman.

Believing that Robin Tim Drake has been killed in the chaos, Dick Grayson beats the Joker to death although Batman revives his foe to keep Grayson from being a murdererand the villain succeeds in making a member of the Bat-family break their rule against killing.

Earth[ edit ] On this alternate Earth, the children of metahuman heroes and villains have been forced into apparent retirement due to the efficiency of Superman robots. Ironically, the turning point came in "Joker Walks the Last Mile" Detective Comics 64when the Joker was actually executed in the electric chair only to be chemically revived by henchmen.

Higher primates apparently do not qualify but a lot more effort went into that one. Throughout his decades-long war with Batman, he has committed crimes both whimsical and inhumanly brutal, all with a logic and reasoning that, in Batman's words, "make sense to him alone.

Bond Villain Stupidity : In a "Detective Comics" story written by Paul Dinithe Joker while impersonating a stage magician he had previously murdered shot Zatanna in the throat so she couldn't recite a spell to save herself, then locked her in a tank of water while strapping Batman in an electric chair.

Later on, he'd learn to giggle while remaining terrifying. Hyena used his enhancements to become a psychopathic killer.

The Joker tries to kill Carnage with a bomb, but Carnage drapes a piece of symbiote over a corpse to fake his death. According to Phillips, Joker was created from his idea to create a different, more grounded comic book film.

Critical Psychoanalysis Failure : Happens frequently, though this may be an indication of the competence of the staff at Arkham. So, the first pages get 1.

The shift was derided for moving away from tamer superheroes and villainsbut comic audiences were no longer primarily children. Bill Finger had a book with a photograph of Conrad Veidt and showed it to me and said, 'Here's the Joker.
