Everyone is wrong about the Joker

This post is about the CHARACTER of the Joker across all media, not the movie.

There seems to be two reactions to the Joker. On one side are the people who like him as a character and are neutral towards him as a person(the gamer meme is an exaggerated version of this). On the other side there’s the Joker antis, who hate him as a person AND as a character. Personally, I like the Joker as a character and hate him as a person. What both sides get wrong is that they think the point of the Joker is to send this nihilistic message that nothing actually matters, and then to think he might be right. The people who like the Joker think this is good writing and the antis think this is bad writing. However, this is just theJoker’s philosophy, not the message you’re supposed to take away. The Joker IS a well written character, but because you’re supposed to be AFRAID of him. You aren’t supposed to relate to his philosophy. Just like Batman, you’re supposed to be ALARMED that the Joker thinks this way. This is why they’re such great foils. They represent humanity and inhumanity, justice and injustice, order and chaos. What makes this so fascinating(and terrifying) is that there ARE people in the real world who think like the Joker. Serial Killers and mass murderers who place no value in human life. The Joker is supposed to make us afraid of the fact that there are people like him in our own world. His philosophy is bullshit, it isn’t meant to make sense. I think many people fail to see this aspect of his character because the Joker isn’t actually scary, he’s entertaining. He’s a comic book villain, not a horror character. Unlike Pennywise from Stephen King’s IT, he isn’t some horrifying monster, he’s just a man. But the fact that he’s just a man IS what makes him so horrifying. He shows how capable many humans are of doing horrible things. Of course, this is all subjective and you don’t have to like him as a character, but hopefully this might change your opinion if you previously thought he was just supposed to send some nihilistic message. EVERYONE should hate him as a person though. Many people are neutral towards him as a person, just because of how fun and entertaining he is. But once you take away the clown stuff, the charisma, and the jokes, there isn’t anything fun or entertaining about him. This is why he’s hated so much by the people who don’t find him entertaining. He’s awful: he abused Harley Quinn, sexually assaulted Barbara Gordon, and murdered Jason Todd(amongst many others). He’s a cool character who’s fun to watch, but I still despise him as a person. Overall, the Joker is just a well written scumbag who happens to be kind’ve funny.

Okay so I’ve been thinking, with all these new Batman movies coming up and with amazing casting, I began to think, if they were to someday make a live action TellTale Batman game. Who would be the perfect casting, so here i’ve rounded the actors who would fit perfectly.

So … I might be over reading matters, but the conjunction of pastel pink and blue that swirls around Harley Quinn seems to me redolent of the trans flag. And I for one welcome any ally to our cause. And Harley is just such a plucky anti-heroine I feel entirely justified appropriating her character to my own Fantabulous Emancipation.
