Joker, the name itself will result in us picturing a guy with green hair, scars on his face, wearing a green coat and a grin that would scare the bejesus out of us. The Joker is often considered as one of the greatest villains of all time and he hasn’t earned that tag easily. Be it his love for Batman or his crazy theatrics with Harley Quinn, he justifies the tag, ‘The Clown Prince of Crime’.
Following are some crazy facts you didn’t know about Joker.
1.Superman killed Joker
In the video game, Injustice: Gods Among Us, the Joker kidnaps Louis Lane, who happens to be pregnant with Superman’s kid. He takes Louis to the submarine where he was going to perform an open heart surgery on her. When Superman finds them, the Joker releases Scarecrow’s fear gas which is mixed with Kryptonite that makes him hallucinate about Doomsday. He acts on his instincts and takes Doomsday to space with him, killing him out of lack of oxygen. When the effect of the gas wears of, Superman realises that he has actually killed Louis Lane and their unborn child. In a fit of rage, he rams his hand through Joker’s chest which killed him instantly.
2-The Joker actually isn’t Insane
Here’s the catch, Joker is conscious of his actions and its consequences; he is also aware that what he is doing is wrong.
Furthermore, it’s not as if he’s suffering from what’s known as an irresistible impulse, such as automatism, he is completely under control of his own actions. The Joker clearly rejects the general popular consensus on right and wrong and his actions are such that they can make you question your own sanity.
3 -Harley was almost killed by the joker over a joke
The joker had narrated a joke which Harley decide to improvise. They had caught the Batman and where planning to feed him to the piranhas. She had hung Batman upside down so that his perception of the piranhas would be altered because she feared the carnivorous fish would frown. She thought she actually improvised the joke well, only to make the Joker angrier. He stated that if a Joke had to be explained, it wasn’t a joke on the first place.
Seeing him angry, she grabbed a sword fish to protect herself, which only provoked him further. In rage, the joker pushed her out of the window because she didn’t get the joke right in the first place.
4- The joker has also appeared in Scooby doo
In an episode titled, ‘Scooby Doo meets Batman’, the Joker and The Penguin are disguised as skeletons and they try to scare the gang away. Scooby scares The Joker and Penguin who accidentally run through the door that leads into a pit where they are caught and unmasked by The Caped Crusaders. the Joker and Penguin reveal that they have been stashing the same counterfeit money as in the crate.
