One of my favorite supervillain out there is The Joker. Like the lead superhero he fights, he is very much human, and never had special powers. Yet I found him more unsettling simply because he resembles psychos in real life, especially in recent reincarnations.

Up to now, I can’t decide who is the best Joker in the cimenatic universe. It could be Jack Nicholson’s gangster clown, Heath Ledgers anarchist, or Joaquim Phoenix’s demented comedian. They are good in their own rights, and each represents the different horrors of humanity, which added to the depth of their character. Jack Nicholson’s Joker is a nod to the organized crime boss, while Heath Ledger’s Joker is the personification of terrorism. Joaquim Phoenix mentally disturbed Joker seems to tell the world what the incels could do to the public.
