Batman The Joker Hero

Good Essays
Without villains movies, comics and games would not be an intersecting art form. Without these antagonist heroes like Batman won 't be the same without the Joker. Villains are important to the one we call the hero and one of the greatest Villains of all time is the Prince of crime himself the Joker. There is something about a maniacal clown going around a city, killing people for no reason other than just for fun people love. The joker is one the most recognizable fictional characters in the world. His green hair, white skin, and giant red smile are the perfect ingredients to make one of the simplest yet complex character in history. The joker has been seen in many works, but he is most famous in comics, movies and video games. This villain…show more content…
But my favorite rendition of The Joker has to be the joker from "The Dark Knight" by Christopher Nolan. In this rendition of the Joker he has a scared smile from a back story that is vague. With three different stories on how he got the scars it each story gets different scarier and brutal. From all the jokers that have been created this is the greatest one because it is the most human version possible. With many fan theories on why he is the way he is personally I don 't care why he is that way because I admire the chaos he brings to the street of Gotham. This joker is portrayed by Heath Ledger, and to this day I find it that this is the most realistic and evil Joker that can be seen. Heath Ledger managed to capture the sense of evil we all have within us with the joker. In my opinion, this joker felt to be the most realistic joker of all time. I say this because the back story of other rendition of The Joker, he is a man who fell into a tub of acid that bleached his skin white and made his hair green, but Heath Ledger had a different idea on how the prince of crime should be portrayed. Heath Ledger cane up with the idea of what seems to be a war veteran who has a Glasgow smile who wears makeup and dyes his hair green, and for an insignia use a joker card. This is what a real villain should be, not some type of extraterrestrial life form that is trying to take over the world.

Unlike Batman the joker doesn 't have a motive "I 'm like a dog chasing cars, I wouldn 't know what to do with one if I caught it...I just do things" The Joker. With the mentality that he just does things for doing them, we can notice that he is a deranged lunatic. The joker is so derange that he believes that Batman and he are the same and he is so clever, and brilliant that we start to believe him. "Don 't talk like one of them. You 're not! Even if you 'd like to be. To them, you 're just a freak, like me! They need you right now, but when they don 't, they 'll cast you out, like a leper! You see, their morals, their code, it 's a bad joke. Dropped at the first sign of trouble. They 're only as good as the world allows them to be. I 'll show you. When the chips are down, these... these civilized people, they 'll eat each other. See, I 'm not a monster. I 'm
