The Joker Background Information

The JoThe Jocker informationker was born in the 1940s when he was created by artist Bob Kane and his team as one of the many villains for the Batman comics. He later evolved to the psychopath beloved by fans today. Undoubtedly, he and Batman will keep battling it out until one of them succeeds.

According to the comics, the Joker is said to have been driven mad by falling into a vat of chemicals that bleached his skin and lightened his hair to green. It also caused the permanent smile, leaving comic and movie fans with a visage too horrible to forget.
The Joker costume has remained quite unchanged since his inception in the 40s.

Early drawings show him clad in a 1940s purple zoot suit with huge lapels. The suit has been updated through the years to accommodate the passage of time but it has essentially remained the same, along with the rictus grin and green hair.

The Joker Movies and TV Shows

The Jocker moviesDespite the lack of changes in the character design, Joker has been a mainstay of the Batman franchise since the beginning.

Although Joker has been featured in all the animated versions of Batman and the live action Batman series in the 1960s, two memorable performances have defined him for this generation.

The first is Jack Nicholson’s crazy take on the Joker for the 1989 film Batman. The iconic purple suit is given the gangster treatment in this film and in one scene Nicholson’s Joker is actually wearing blue and purple plaid pants and a fedora.

But the creepiest version of the Joker appeared in the Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight. Heath Ledger turned him into a psychopathic, completely mad criminal with no morals.

Needless to say, this version of the Joker clicked. Strangely enough, the Joker had been portrayed as a psychopath in the comics for years but this performance brought it to public attention. Fans went crazy for this Joker costume and it really does not take a genius to see why.
