Joker's name officially revealed

Recommended Posts

The Joker's mysterious origins were always a part of the "charm" of the character. Pigeonholing his identity serves no purpose to the character and is just a way for the current DC staff to point at themselves and say, "Look at ME!"

 

Mind you, the story premise touched upon in that article is clearly an Elseworlds type of event, so the mainstream Joker might remain the avatar of chaos that he always has been.

Haven't read the spoiler, but when Batman sat on the Monitor's chair and asked it the Joker's name, it gave him 3. This led to he and Flash finding the Button (the one suspiciously like the one from the Watchmen). So, revealing 1 name doesn't mean it is The Joker.

Jerome, from Gotham, though that seems to be more of a proto-Joker. I have not seen the post-resurrection storyline for him. Still, the actor did a great job portraying him. Throw some green air and white greasepaint on him and you have one of the best Joker's out there.

<shrug>  Gotta point out that the Joker has already been that guy and that was one of the better Jokers.  It's not that big a deal when Jokers are all over the place.
