Overrated Works | Batman: The Killing Joke

This may be strange coming from someone who loves the Joker (and the Batman franchise as a whole) so much. It would only make sense that I love a Joker story as much as everybody else loves it... I enjoy The Killing Joke, but I certainly don't think it's great. Even it's own creator, Alan Moore, … Continue reading Overrated Works | Batman: The Killing Joke

Not Opposites – Batman and the Joker

It seems obvious that a hero needs his greatest enemy to be his opposite equal. Someone who can match the hero in every way, but their goals, methods, and even personalities are as close to opposite as possible. But, this is not the case with Batman and the Joker.

Now they have an idea as ridiculous … Continue reading Joker Origin Movie (My Thoughts)

The 6 Greatest Villains In All Fiction, and Why

Voldemort (Harry Potter)      I'm surprised I ultimately chose to include Voldemort on this list at all, but I have my reasons. He's basically Adolf Hitler of the magical … Continue reading The 6 Greatest Villains In All Fiction, and Why

The Joker’s Backstory (My Theory)

Joker is easily my favorite fictional character, of any franchise, of all time. Since DC has never 'officially' released any backstory for the Joker, I've come up with my own theory. DC seems to allow others to create their own origin story (such as The Killing Joke, and Tim Burton's 1989 movie Batman), but since no official … Continue reading The Joker’s Backstory (My Theory)
