The joker is meant to be a creation that is like Batman only that in that the joker lost all he had. He's the batman with just one bad day added in where he lost everything that he loved. He was given that one last push that killed who ever he was.

Batman is still Bruce because he never lost everything but the joker had nothing in the past. They were both nobody till they added one more push. Batman's push made him the Batman and yet he was able to put the cape away and remain Bruce at the end of the night. But the joker's final push made him push back in every way he had been pushed. Because if the joker ever stopped pushing back he would return to that shell he was as the early full on emptiness and despair.

The joker is who he is because the alternative is to be nothing at all. And it is the world biggest joke that he is something from nothing. And nothing all the same.

Perhaps one of the saddest parts of the Joker was the fact that there WAS actually a time when he was a normal man trying to live a normal life.

Seeing glimpses of that past somehow brings understanding that a killer with no motive or connection could ever have.
User avatar #75 to #25 - Kainim (05/02/2013) [-]
that is one of the possible stories of who he was, there's mutliple universes so there's no REAL story behind joker (like, the reason batman became batman is the same in every universe)
#185 to #25 - anon (05/02/2013) [-]
So before he was the joker, he was Bill Nye?

#27 to #25 - shrapnelleader ONLINE (05/02/2013) [-]
For me, one of these sad inner-Joker moments was when he killed Sarah Gordon.

She had a gun on him, but when she dropped it to save an infant, he shot her with a cold "Merry Christmas." Oddly enough, the Joker found no humor in this murder and even surrendered himself to the police. Seeing him sad and contemplative like that after what would normally be a typical event was actually a bit moving.

For people who don't know the source of that picture of alfred being the joker it's from a comic series called whatever happened to the caped crusader. Where batman is dead and listening to different stories from everyone he knows explaining different ways how he died and alfred's story was him and afew of his buddies dressed up as villians.
#84 - knitey (05/02/2013) [-]
it all ended in a laugh
User avatar #129 to #84 - Blargosnarf ONLINE (05/02/2013) [-]
...I am confused as to what I'm looking at. Sure, they're laughing, does Batman push him into the truck? Do they both get hit by the truck? Is he choking the **** out of him in the middle panel?
User avatar #200 to #129 - blackfalcon (05/02/2013) [-]
batman is just leaning on the joker, to not fall while laughing.
After all they've both gone through, they are now like friends to eachother, at least for this one moment.
then with the coming of the police cars, they both realise what they must do. the Joker gets arrested and batman leaves...

If you are a batman fan, you must read this comic 'The Killing Joke' (downloadable on piratebay) and you'll have to read 'through' the story, if you know what I mean. You will then lean to understand what those two characters mean for eachother in a very psychotic way.... It truly is one of the best batman stories ever written

There's a couple different origin stories. In The Killing Joke, which this excerpt is from, He was double crossed by the Red Hood Gang during a job on a chemical plant. Under the shock of getting shot at, betrayed, losing his wife(or fiancé, it's been awhile) and getting mutated(hence his coloration) he snapped and became the criminal genius we all know and love.

Does he die here? and how?
User avatar #58 to #57 - iamkagji ONLINE (05/02/2013) [-]
No. The Joker say's "What do you think I am, crazy?" and starts laughing. Batman stares at him for a second before joining in as the police cars arrive. It's almost sadder that way, though. Death would have been a form of closure.
User avatar #59 to #58 - newmainman (05/02/2013) [-]
True, any idea how the joker dies or if he does die?
User avatar #61 to #59 - iamkagji ONLINE (05/02/2013) [-]
Nah, no idea.

Aww man. Oh well, thanks for the insight. Have a good one.
User avatar #64 to #62 - iamkagji ONLINE (05/02/2013) [-]
Oh I found the joke, bro.

See, there were these two guys in a lunatic asylum... and one night, one night they decide they don't like living in an asylum any more. They decide they're going to escape! So, like, they get up onto the roof, and there, just across this narrow gap, they see the rooftops of the town, stretching away in the moon light... stretching away to freedom. Now, the first guy, he jumps right across with no problem. But his friend, his friend didn't dare make the leap. Y'see... Y'see, he's afraid of falling. So then, the first guy has an idea... He says 'Hey! I have my flashlight with me! I'll shine it across the gap between the buildings. You can walk along the beam and join me!' B-but the second guy just shakes his head. He suh-says... He says 'Wh-what do you think I am? Crazy? You'd turn it off when I was half way across!

The only time I've seen the Joker ACTUALLY die is in The Dark Knight Returns which is written by Frank Miller and possibly the best graphic novel I've ever read...

The animated film(s) isn't half bad either, I strongly recommend it.
User avatar #60 to #57 - iamkagji ONLINE (05/02/2013) [-]
"What do you think I am, crazy?" is the punchline to a joke I can't remember the rest of, by the way.

well, if you don't mind a spoiler to the start, its all I really know about it, he had Dollmaker cut off his face, and left it in a prison. People think batman killed the joker. He then steals it back from the police department.

You can read them online, but I try to purchase the comics I enjoy, or just the softcover books of them when released. Right now, I love the suicide squad. It's basically Villains forced to do the governments dirty work

i want to read the complete story!
can you please tell me the names of the issues etc. and where i can purchase them.
and if i can read them online can you please fill me in on what i need to read?
User avatar #41 to #40 - VincentKing ONLINE (05/02/2013) [-]
The main series of it is Batman issues 13-17, while the others that join in on it, giving more depth to it, as well as their own stories, are as follows.
Batgirl 13-15
Catwoman 13-15
Suicide squad 14-15
Batman and robin 15-16
detective comics 15-16
nightwing 15-16
red hood 15-16
teen titans 15-16

Quite a lot, and some require past issues to understand it all. All I now need is batgirl number 13 with the first print cover, and I will be happy
User avatar #42 to #41 - ilikeweed (05/02/2013) [-]

I think Joker's main objective is to have Batman kill him. Think about it, he routinely beats cops, even members of the Justice League. Hell, he's outsmarted Superman. But whenever he comes against Batman, he goes easy. I think he's trying to break the unbreakable mind of Batman and force him to end his life
#210 to #134 - RageGuyyourmom (05/05/2013) [-]
"Hell, he's outsmarted Superman." Unless I missed something Superman is really just of average intelligence while joker on the other hand I could see rivaling Luther in many aspects.
User avatar #213 to #210 - titsandgtfo (05/05/2013) [-]
you're wrong. Very wrong, actually. Superman is a genius, speaks several languages, and is a technical mastermind. He's peered into some of Batman's weapons and instantly sees ways to improve them.
#214 to #213 - RageGuyyourmom (05/06/2013) [-]
I feel like you are giving too much to credence Supermans intelligence that he actually got from braniacs information orbs.

Yes, multiple ones. Look up Under the Red Hood
User avatar #77 to #15 - angelious (05/02/2013) [-]
there is many backstories for joker.the most common one was that he was a comedian who got into trouble and had to pose as a robber.he then got thrown into a vat of chemical acids that turned him ******* insane and his skin to the color it is now.

other stories place him as a gangster who went insane or just gangster who uses clown gimmic.

the backstory varies from time to time and none of these are "official" backstory for him.

Yes, the one by Alan Moore (this panel is actually from the comic) is generally accepted as the origin story. He's had others, but most of them are just variations of this one.

User avatar #21 to #19 - antisocialtwilight (05/02/2013) [-]
That's just how he became the Joker, but nobody knew who he was before the Red Hood. I don't think even he knows.

Not since the accident.
User avatar #83 to #21 - benjaminbutton (05/02/2013) [-]
Well all we know is that his wife was pregnant, and he being a comedian needed ends to meet, so he agreed to a sabotage operation or something of that caliber. At the last minute he tried backing out, but the thugs wouldn't let him. His wife and child died, and he fell into the vat and became who we know as the Joker.

"So... I see you received the free ticket I sent you. I'm glad. I did so want you to be here. You see it doesn't matter if you catch me and send me back to the asylum... Gordon's been driven mad. I've proved my point. I've demonstrated there's no difference between me and everyone else! All it takes is one bad day to reduce the sanest man alive to lunacy. That's how far the world is from where I am. Just one bad day. You had a bad day once, am I right? I know I am. I can tell. You had a bad day and everything changed. Why else would you dress up as a flying rat? You had a bad day, and it drove you as crazy as everybody else... Only you won't admit it! You have to keep pretending that life makes sense, that there's some point to all this struggling! God you make me want to puke. I mean, what is it with you? What made you what you are? Girlfriend killed by the mob, maybe? Brother carved up by some mugger? Something like that, I bet. Something like that... Something like that happened to me, you know. I... I'm not exactly sure what it was. Sometimes I remember it one way, sometimes another... If I'm going to have a past, I prefer it to be multiple choice! Ha ha ha! But my point is... My point is, I went crazy. When I saw what a black, awful joke the world was, I went crazy as a coot! I admit it! Why can't you? I mean, you're not unintelligent! You must see the reality of the situation. Do you know how many times we've come close to world war three over a flock of geese on a computer screen? Do you know what triggered the last world war? An argument over how many telegraph poles Germany owed its war debt creditors! Telegraph poles! Ha ha ha ha HA! It's all a joke! Everything anybody ever valued or struggled for... it's all a monstrous, demented gag! So why can't you see the funny side? Why aren't you laughing?"

Thought. Maybe the Joker was a good honest person, doing the right thing in life. But his love/kids/family/friends all died. He literally has nothing left to live for but laughs. Over time his sense of humour deteriorates and turns to more... dark parts. So he becomes the Joker because he just wants to smile again. Just a thought.
