SUPERVILLAIN REVIEW: THE JOKER

One of the most terrifying and iconic supervillains is Batman’s nemesis: the Joker. In many ways, I find the Joker to be a model supervillain because not only is he a complete and utter psychopath, but he is cunning, unpredictable, and craves chaos for the sake of chaos. My favorite incarnation of the Joker is Heath Ledger’s version from The Dark Knight because he was anarchic and frighteningly convincing. Jared Leto’s version of the Joker in the Suicide Squad film looks promising, but Leto has some serious shoes to fill after Ledger’s performance. One thing I find interesting about the Joker is that even though he has caused Batman pain from time to time such as when he murdered the second Robin, Jason Todd, the Joker cannot imagine a world without Batman. With that in mind, it would be fair to say that the Joker finds his battles with Batman to be a never-ending game that he enjoys.
