I only started reading the Joker-Comics now,
but whats a Batman-Comic-fans opinion on the Joker-movie?

Didn't the Joker appear to be too low IQ somehow? Not like a crazy planning mastermind, but rather a sociopath who is angry because hes a loser who laughs all the time?

It wasn't a bad movie imho, but it was a bad Joker-movie.
Or am I wrong?

The comics also have plenty of shitty takes on the Joker, especially in comics taking place outside the main continuity (alt-timelines and shit). We pick and choose our favorite Joker comics and then say "This is the Joker. This is how he should act/behave". Then we get pissed off at any Joker that doesn't perfectly match our idea of him. Folks gotta just roll with the fact that he's a diverse dude.

I hear DC is putting out a new book called The Three Jokers by Geoff Johns (the dude who does all their books that are major canon-adding events) and it supposedly will reveal that there are multiple Jokers and that that's why fans have such diverse opinions on what his personality is, because we've been watching 3 different Jokers and mistakenly thinking they're one dude. Or I could be wrong and The Three Jokers is just a goofy dimension-hopping story where Batman goes to three earths and fights a joker on them all.

Basically this, interpretations of the joker vary wildly.


The three jokers book is supposedly a follow up to what happened during Final Crisis where Batman sat on the mobius chair and asked who the Joker is. At some point we find out that the answer was that there are three jokers.

I'm curious how they're gonna handle it because it's a concept that's pretty easy to fuck up and/or upset people.

In Marvel, they have The Maker, who is Reed Richards from an alt-universe that is now destroyed. I figure that's what the other 2 Jokers are, little assholes who sneakily survived the apocalypse of their timeline. I'm guessing the Joker who is native to that world (New 52) is the one Grant Morrison and Scott Snyder have been writing about. Then one of the others will be the super campy Joker from the really early stuff and who was portrayed in TAS by Hammill. Then the 2nd Joker will be the one that sort of meets in the middle, the 80s/90s era dude.

I think that's kinda the idea.
If the cover is anything to go by I think we've got The Killing Joke Joker, A Death in the Family Joker, and new52 Joker.

The Joker movie is a completely different take on the Joker, something that seems more grounded in 'our reality'. No giant vat in an Ace Chemicals factory, no Batman chase, just a dude in clown make-up losing it.

God knows what the Batman looks like in that universe, maybe Bruce Wayne didn't pick up the cowl? Imagine a movie that explores Bruce Wayne's life as a WayneTech CEO and millionaire playboy.

I'm thinking of a mix between Citizen Kane and The Wolf of Wallstreet.

oh and a light sprinkle of American Psycho (not the murder stuff) depending on how angsty and vain they want to make Bruce.

Jason todd killing, Iranian Joker - the pop culture antagonist
Killing joke, forcing batman to betray his ideals Joker - Lucifer
Mastermind, finding batman's secret identity, isolating gotham, crime lord d00d - idk the movie one probably.

two out of three ain't bad, but the archetypes are strongest when batman is a defined hero rather than an childish ideal of heroism.

My joker is entropy.

Unpopular opinion, probably but I liked this incarnation of the Joker. He was pretty manipulative and focused on wacky hijinks for a guy who looks like a Rastafarian Gorillaz bouncer. Also his Harley Quinn was HOT AF.

Joaquin Phoenix "Joker" is an ISTP that wants to be an ENTP, he is not some criminal mastermind he is just Passion of the Christ for I ncel Juggalos. The morons that want a sequel don't realize it would just be three hours of him smearing his shit on the walls of his Arkaham cell.

They don't diagnose him at all,real mental disorders are not ambiguous. That is one of the many reasons it was such lazy pretentious garbage. He had plot convenient schizophrenia and antisocial traits.

The problem with Meyers Briggs is that people think it's more than it is. It's a test that gives you broadly descriptive characteristics and describes common traits in people with those sets.

What Augustus said ends up being treated like a clinical or absolute type when actually what he really said is
>he's a measured introvert who wants to be more of an instinctive extrovert
Which isn't a particularly disagreeable statement. It's just that people tend to use the MBT to put people onto boxes rather than measure which part of a series of scales they fall on. And they also forget that people's behaviors also change in different situations. Someone may be one thing at work and another at home and a third thing with friends and something else going out and meeting strangers.

However the problem is people like nice easy neat answers. When you teach people to use a toolset like MBT (and many based on it, and they work when they're used with appropriate training by their intended audience) the first thing you do is say "these are not absolute" "these are not constant" "these are rough guideliness and vary" before you tell someone what they are.

In short MBT isn't actually too bad. The real issue is internet pseuds whacking labels on stuff to feel smart.

My opinion is that he will likely develop into a more meticulous, criminal mastermind of a person as his mania grows.

He's talking about in the film universe, not real life.
