Quick Thought #3-The Perfect Super Villain
I am going a little off the norm here, but there is something so beautiful about the character that is The Joker. I know Batman fans are either for or completely against the most recent movies. I only just recently watched Batman- The Dark Night and having already fallen in love Heath Ledger from his role in my favorite 90’s romcom “10 Things I Hate About You”, I was intrigued.
The character of The Joker is the embodiment of the Perfect Killer, he is detailed oriented, without emotion and absolutely insane. Also, the fact he has been interpreted countless different ways yet the foundation of his true identity is always there and no matter how hard an artist or movie producer tries to manipulate it he is a perfect villain. His process of thinking is an unspoken rule in the world of evil, “don’t think, just do”. He perfectly describes himself as an “agent of chaos”. He has a way to take the scum of Gotham City and make an army of killer clowns, he even has a way to corrupt those who dedicate their lives to saving the innocent. If there ever was a perfect criminal, gangster, mobster, and all the other types of interpretation of him, The Joker is the perfect whirlwind of crazy, and chaos that is, if he was real, would swallow us all.
