The reasons why the Joker was disguised as the Red Hood, and his identity before his transformation have changed over time. The character was introduced in Batman 1 , in which he announces that he will kill three of Gotham's prominent citizens including Henry Claridge.
Although the police protect Claridge, the Joker had poisoned him before making his announcement and Claridge dies with a ghastly grin on his face; Batman eventually defeats him, sending him to prison.
His resulting disfigurement led him to adopt the name "Joker", from the playing card figure he came to resemble. In this story, the Joker is obsessed with maintaining his illusion of wealth and celebrity as a criminal folk hero, afraid to let Gotham's citizens know that he is penniless and was tricked out of his fortune.
Batman: The Killing Joke built on the Joker's origin story, portraying him as a failed comedian pressured into committing crime as the Red Hood to support his pregnant wife.
Batman's interference causes him to leap into a chemical vat, which disfigures him. This, combined with the trauma of his wife's earlier accidental death, causes him to go insane and become the Joker.
Although the Joker refuses, he shows his appreciation by sharing a joke with Batman. In the story "A Death in the Family", the Joker beats Jason Todd with a crowbar and leaves him to die in an explosion.
Todd's death haunts Batman, and for the first time he considers killing the Joker. In the " No Man's Land " storyline, the Joker murders Commissioner Gordon's second wife, Sarah , as she shields a group of infants.
The Joker, lamenting that he may never walk again, collapses with laughter when he realizes that the commissioner has avenged Barbara's paralysis.
The s began with the crossover story "Emperor Joker", in which the Joker steals Mister Mxyzptlk 's reality-altering power and remakes the universe in his image torturing and killing Batman daily, before resurrecting him.
When the supervillain then tries to destroy the universe, his reluctance to eliminate Batman makes him lose control, and Superman defeats him.
Instead, the Joker flanked by an army of "Jokerized" supervillains launches a final crime spree. Believing that Robin Tim Drake has been killed in the chaos, Dick Grayson beats the Joker to death although Batman revives his foe to keep Grayson from being a murderer , and the villain succeeds in making a member of the Bat-family break their rule against killing.
In " Under the Hood " , a resurrected Todd tries to force Batman to avenge his death by killing the Joker. Batman refuses, arguing that if he allows himself to kill the Joker, he will not be able to stop killing other criminals.
The supervillain returns in "The Clown at Midnight" as a cruel, enigmatic force who awakens and tries to kill Harley Quinn to prove to Batman that he has become more than human.
When the Joker escapes, he attacks the Black Glove, burying its leader Simon Hurt alive after the supervillain considers him a failure as an opponent; the Joker is then defeated by the recently returned Batman.
Batman later informs Hal Jordan that the Mobius Chair revealed that "there are three. The first issue was released on August 25, and ended on October 28, Although a number of backstories have been given, a definitive one has not yet been established for the Joker.
An unreliable narrator , the character is uncertain of who he was before and how he became the Joker: "Sometimes I remember it one way, sometimes another He falls into a vat of chemical waste when his heist is thwarted by Batman, emerging with bleached white skin, red lips, green hair and a permanent grin.
This story was the basis for the most often-cited origin tale, Moore's one-shot The Killing Joke. Unsuccessful, he agrees to help mobsters with a robbery and becomes the Red Hood.
The heist goes awry; the comedian leaps into a chemical vat to escape Batman, surfacing disfigured. This, combined with the earlier accidental death of his wife and unborn child, drives the comedian insane and he becomes the Joker.
The miniseries also reveals that Batman knows the Joker's identity, and has kept it secret out of knowledge it would put his wife and son in danger.
However, the Joker's unreliable memory has allowed writers to develop other origins for the character. He has his fateful first meeting with Batman, which results in his disfigurement.
It is suggested that the Joker is sane, and feigns insanity to avoid the death penalty. In Batman Confidential 7—12, the character, Jack, is a talented criminal who is bored with his work.
He encounters and becomes obsessed with Batman during a heist, embarking on a crime spree to attract his attention. After Jack injures Batman's girlfriend, Batman scars Jack's face with a permanent grin and betrays him to a group of mobsters, who torture him in a chemical plant.
Jack escapes, but falls into an empty vat as gunfire punctures chemical tanks above him. The flood of chemicals used in anti-psychotic medication alters his appearance and completes his transformation.
The Joker has claimed a number of origins, including being the child of an abusive father who broke his nose, and the long-lived jester of an Egyptian pharaoh.
As Batman says: "Like any other comedian, he uses whatever material will work. A number of alternate universes in DC Comics publications allow writers to introduce variations on the Joker, in which the character's origins, behavior, and morality differ from the mainstream setting.
Renowned as Batman's greatest enemy,     the Joker is known by a number of nicknames, including the Clown Prince of Crime, the Harlequin of Hate, the Ace of Knaves, and the Jester of Genocide.
The original, dominant image is that of an extreme psychopath ,  with genius-level intelligence and a warped, sadistic sense of humor.
This appearance is such a fundamental aspect of the character that when the animated series The Batman placed the Joker in a straitjacket, it quickly redesigned him in his familiar suit.
The Joker is obsessed with Batman, the pair representing a yin-yang of opposing dark and light force; although it is the Joker who represents humor and color and Batman who dwells in the dark.
Spectacle is more important than success for the Joker, and if it is not spectacular it is boring.
Despite this body count, he is always found not guilty by reason of insanity and sent to Arkham Asylum, avoiding the death penalty.
The villain displays no instinct for self-preservation, and is willing to die to prove his point.
The Joker's main characteristic is his apparent insanity, although he is not described as having any particular psychological disorder.
Like a psychopath, he lacks empathy, a conscience, and concern over right and wrong. In Arkham Asylum: A Serious House on Serious Earth , the Joker is described as capable of processing outside sensory information only by adapting to it.
This enables him to create a new personality every day depending on what would benefit him and explains why, at different times, he is a mischievous clown or a psychopathic killer.
The Killing Joke in which the Joker is the unreliable narrator explains the roots of his insanity as "one bad day": losing his wife and unborn child and being disfigured by chemicals, paralleling Batman's origin in the loss of his parents.
He tries and fails to prove that anyone can become like him after one bad day by torturing Commissioner Gordon, physically and psychologically.
Englehart's "The Laughing Fish" demonstrates the character's illogical nature: trying to copyright fish that bear his face, and not understanding why threatening the copyright clerk cannot produce the desired result.
The Joker is alternatively depicted as sexual and asexual. Frank Miller interpreted the character as fixated on death and uninterested in sexual relationships, while Robinson believed that the Joker is capable of a romantic relationship.
Harley loves him, but the Joker does not reciprocate her feelings, chiding her for distracting him from other plans. Snyder's "Death of the Family" describes the Joker as in love with Batman, although not in a traditionally romantic way.
The Joker believes that Batman has not killed him because he makes Batman better and he loves the villain for that. The Joker is often depicted as defining his existence through his conflict with Batman.
In 's "Going Sane", the villain tries to lead a normal life after Batman's apparent death, only to become his old self again when Batman reappears; in "Emperor Joker", an apparently omnipotent Joker cannot destroy Batman without undoing himself.
Since the Joker is simply "the Joker", he believes that Batman is "Batman" with or without the costume and has no interest in what is behind Batman's mask, ignoring opportunities to learn Batman's secret identity.
The Joker is portrayed as having no fear; when fellow supervillain Scarecrow doses him with fear toxin in Knightfall , the Joker merely laughs and says "Boo!
At these moments, the Joker is depicted as expressing remorse for his acts;   however, during a medically induced period of partial sanity in Batman: Cacophony he tells his opponent, "I don't hate you 'cause I'm crazy.
I'm crazy 'cause I hate you," and confirms that he will only stop murdering when Batman is dead. The Joker has no inherent superhuman abilities.
The flower in his lapel sprays acid, and his hand often holds a lethal joy buzzer conducting a million volts of electricity, although both items were introduced in as harmless joke items.
The Joker has used venom since his debut; only he knows the formula, and is shown to be gifted enough to manufacture the toxin from ordinary household chemicals.
Another version of the venom used in Joker: Last Laugh makes its victims resemble the Joker, susceptible to his orders. The character's arsenal is inspired by his nemesis' weaponry, such as batarangs.
In "The Joker's Utility Belt" , he mimicked Batman's utility belt with non-lethal items, such as Mexican jumping beans and sneezing powder.
His technical genius is not limited by practicality, allowing him to hijack Gotham's television airwaves to issue threats, transform buildings into death traps, launch a gas attack on the city and rain poisoned glass shards on its citizens from an airship.
The Joker is portrayed as skilled in melee combat, from his initial appearances when he defeats Batman in a sword fight nearly killing him , and others when he overwhelms Batman but declines to kill him.
The Joker's unpredictable, homicidal nature makes him one of the most feared supervillains in the DC Universe; the Trickster says in the miniseries Underworld Unleashed , "When super-villains want to scare each other, they tell Joker stories.
He has collaborated with criminals like the Penguin , the Riddler and Two-Face , although these partnerships rarely end well due to the Joker's desire for unbridled chaos, and he uses his stature to lead others such as Killer Croc and the Scarecrow.
Although they have a friendly partnership in 's World's Finest Comics 88, later unions emphasized their mutual hostility and clashing egos.
Despite his tendency to kill subordinates on a whim, the Joker has no difficulty attracting henchmen with a seemingly infinite cash supply and intimidation: they are too afraid of their employer to refuse his demands that they wear red clown noses or laugh at macabre jokes.
Although Quinn loves the Joker, he is obsessed with Batman and uses her to achieve his goals at her expense. Despite violent abuse, she returns to him.
Although his chief obsession is Batman, the character has occasionally ventured outside Gotham City to fight Batman's superhero allies.
The story is notable for the Joker taking on a relative god and the ease with which Superman defeats him—it took only 17 pages.
Asked why he came to Metropolis, the Joker replies simply: "Oh Superman, why not? Since the Bronze Age of Comics, the Joker has been interpreted as an archetypal trickster , displaying talents for cunning intelligence, social engineering, pranks, theatricality, and idiomatic humor.
Like the trickster, the Joker alternates between malicious violence and clever, harmless whimsy. The trickster is simultaneously subhuman and superhuman, a being that indicates a lack of unity in body and mind.
Rather than the typical anarchist interpretation, others have analysed the character as a Marxist opposite to Batman's capitalist , arguing that anarchism requires the rejection of all authority in favor of uncontrolled freedom.
Ryan Litsey described the Joker as an example of a " Nietzschean Superman ," arguing that a fundamental aspect of Friedrich Nietzsche 's Superman , the "will to power," is exemplified in all of the Joker's actions, providing a master morality to Batman's slave morality.
The Joker's controlling and abusive relationship with Harley Quinn has been analyzed as a means of the Joker reinforcing his own belief in his power in a world where he may be killed or neutralized by another villain or Batman.
Harley's co-creator, Paul Dini, describes their relationship as Harley being someone who makes the Joker feel better about himself, and who can do the work that he does not want to do himself.
The Joker is considered one of the most-recognizable and iconic fictional characters in popular culture,    one of the best comic villains, and one of the greatest villains of all time.
These debates weigh the positive stopping the Joker permanently against its effect on Batman's character and the possibility that he might begin killing all criminals.
The Joker's popularity and his role as Batman's enemy has involved the character in most Batman -related media, from television to video games.
The Joker has appeared in a variety of media, including television series, animated and live-action films. WorldCat a catalog of libraries in countries records over productions featuring the Joker as a subject, including films, books, and video games,  and Batman films featuring the character are typically the most successful.
The role was a defining performance in Nicholson's career and was considered to overshadow Batman's, with film critic Roger Ebert saying that the audience must sometimes remind themselves not to root for the Joker.
Voiced by Mark Hamill , the Joker retained the darker tone of the comics in stories acceptable for young children.
After Christopher Nolan 's successful Batman film reboot, Batman Begins , which ended with a teaser for the Joker 's involvement in a sequel, the character appeared in 's The Dark Knight , played by Heath Ledger as an avatar of anarchy and chaos.
The film received critical acclaim for Phoenix's performance, and criticism for its portrayal of mental illness and violence.
The Joker has also been featured in video games. Hamill returned to voice the character in 's critically acclaimed Batman: Arkham Asylum , its equally praised sequel Batman: Arkham City and the multiplayer DC Universe Online.

Veidt's grinning visage inspired the Joker design. That doesn't seem to matter—just how he is now. I never intended to give a reason for his appearance.
We discussed that and Bill [Finger] and I never wanted to change it at that time. I thought—and he agreed—that it takes away some of the essential mystery.

Taglines: Welcome to a world without rules. Edit Did You Know? Trivia The lenses that cover Batman's eyes during the hostage rescue scene give him a look that's close to the comic and animated adaptations, where Batman's eyes are often visible in the dark, while the rest of his body is blackened out.
Goofs at around 1h 22 mins Following the truck flip at the end of the car chase, the Joker approaches Batman, and 2 of his henchmen are visible: One who touches Batman's mask and gets electrocuted, and another who stands to the left of the screen, doing apparently nothing.
This henchman disappears completely after Joker spits on the other, and is nowhere to be seen when Gordon arrives.

This is because these scenes were filmed in IMAX, whose format is 1. Was this review helpful to you? Yes No Report this. His face is covered in a cracked and runny layer of white clown makeup, with his sunken eyes thickly rimmed in black.
A sloppy red grin is painted across his mouth and cheeks, partly obscuring the scars of a Glasgow smile. The character's mannerisms carry a quality of unpredictability.
His voice frequently shifts in pitch, so that he speaks his dialogue hitting higher notes, followed by an immediate lower voice capable of landing two octaves below.
Nolan acknowledges this unpredictability to be part of the character's slinky physical movements as well, saying that Ledger's performance "[is] always a surprise".
Steve Alexander, Heath Ledger's agent, said the actor had a " pay-or-play " deal on The Dark Knight , "so he felt free to do whatever he wanted to do as the Joker, no matter how crazy.
During a span of six weeks, Ledger "locked" himself away in a hotel room, forming a character diary and experimenting with voices. Christopher Hooton , writing for The Independent , said that the 'Joker journal' had several stills from Stanley Kubrick 's film A Clockwork Orange , joker cards , photos of hyenas, unhinged clown makeup and the word "chaos" highlighted in green.
Furthermore, it contains a list of things the Joker would find funny, such as AIDS , landmines , and geniuses suffering brain damage.
Ledger highlighted the importance of finding an iconic voice and laugh for the character, relating the voice as "the key to the demented killer".
The filmmaker also acknowledged that the voice performance was based on the Alexander technique. Ledger developed the Joker's voice and mannerisms slowly over time and during camera tests.
In hair and makeup tests, Ledger would start exploring the movements of the character. While test recording without sound, he shared his take on the Joker's voice and physicality, and "in that way he sort of sneaked upon it".
The actor developed the physical appearance of the character, being "very involved" with the painting of his face, says prosthetic supervisor Conor O'Sullivan.
Ledger also got to choose the Joker's weapon among different rubber knives, and he worked closely with costume designer Lindy Hemming on deciding the look for the character.
Nolan noted, "We gave a Francis Bacon spin to [his face]. This corruption, this decay in the texture of the look itself. It's grubby. You can almost imagine what he smells like.
She tried to present a backstory for the character "that he really doesn't look after himself". Application of Heath Ledger's makeup was done with the actor scrunching special facial expressions.
Caglione called the application work "a dance". This technique created facial textures for white paint. As Ledger closed his eyes tight, Caglione put on the black makeup.
Then, water was sprayed over the eyes and the actor would squeeze his eyes and shake his head to create imperfections in the makeup. To get in character for filming, Ledger used his Joker diary which he carried with him on set.
Between takes, Ledger would stay in costume and makeup just being himself. The actor would goof around, skateboarding while in his Joker costume on set, and smoking cigarettes.
John Caglione described Ledger as helping others around to relax, never letting "the intense nature of the roles overwhelm him". The first sequence shot was the film's IMAX opening, the "prologue".
As the Joker wears a mask through the scene with minimal dialogue, Nolan set the prologue first in the schedule because he wanted to put off performance worries, allowing Ledger to enjoy that relief.
The interrogation scene between Batman and the Joker was the first scene shot with Ledger really showing the full performance altogether.
During rehearsals, the actors kept things loose and improvisational, saving for the actual shoot. Bale confirmed that Ledger did not perform the Joker's voice during rehearsals, waiting to get in character when the cameras rolled.
Ledger was allowed to shoot and direct the threat videos the Joker sends out as warnings. Each take Ledger made was different from the last.
Nolan was impressed enough with the first video shoot that he chose to not be present when Ledger shot the video with a kidnapped reporter Anthony Michael Hall.
Heath Ledger always showed up early onset. The first thing he would do, according to Caglione, was to give bear hugs to cast and crew members around the set.
On 22 January , after he had completed filming The Dark Knight , Ledger died, aged 28, of an accidental prescription drug overdose , leading to intense press attention and memorial tributes.
Ledger's death affected the marketing campaign for The Dark Knight  and also both the production and marketing of Terry Gilliam 's film The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus ; both Nolan and Gilliam celebrated and paid tribute to Ledger's work in these films.
However, with the first trailer released in , the film and its portrayal of the Joker received very positive response from audiences and entertainment industry professionals alike.
Mexican filmmaker Guillermo del Toro gushed of his impression for Ledger's performance, finding it "really, really edgy and scary". Loeb, who had been critical of Jack Nicholson 's portrayal of the Joker in 's Batman , expressed his excitement for Ledger's interpretation, saying the casting felt "just about right.
I eagerly anticipate more! Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times stated that Heath Ledger's portrayal is a "key performance" and pondered whether he would become the first posthumous Academy Award -winning actor since Peter Finch in It is a towering performance.
A force of nature". Tim Teeman commented for The Times that "Ledger is so terrifying and unpredictable that his very presence on screen makes you nervous.
This is the definitive Joker", calling the performance "a masterpiece". Denby called Ledger "mesmerising" and said, "His performance is a heroic, unsettling final act: this young actor looked into the abyss.
Film critics, co-stars Maggie Gyllenhaal and Michael Caine , and many of Ledger's colleagues in the film community joined Bale in calling for and predicting a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor in recognition of Ledger's performance in The Dark Knight.
