Batman and the Joker have been archenemies for decades. They're arguably the best-known hero-villain combo in popular culture. Largely considered a perfect antithesis for the Caped Crusader, the Joker is a psychopath and a murderer, a pure anarchist who would burn down a city for one good laugh.

'Increased production in the U.S. meant that spot prices weren't reacting quite as much as in previous geopolitical incidents,' Mr. Hansen said.

Without further ado, let’s count down the times the Joker tempted you to dance with the Devil in the pale moonlight. Here are 16 Times The Joker Made More Sense Than Batman.


16 He says Batman is just the lesser of two evils

Batman and the Joker Shows Their Cards

The ongoing Elseworlds storyline White Knight has taken Batman and the Joker into unfamiliar territory. In this alternate universe, Batman is a villain, and the Joker has to save Gotham from him. What’s interesting about this story is that these versions of Batman and the Joker aren’t all that different from their normal portrayals: Batman is still a crime-fighter and the Joker is still a criminal.

15 Batman can’t give up this life, but the Joker can

The 1994 story Going Sane begins with the Joker seemingly killing Batman once and for all. Naturally, the Caped Crusader isn’t really dead, as it is revealed a doctor found him and treated his wounds. During his convalescence, Bruce considers giving up his superhero mantle, but rejects the idea based primarily on his fear of what the Joker is getting up to in Gotham.

14 He knows Batman is his soulmate

Batman and the Joker Walking Arm in Arm

A lot of the Joker’s most famous storylines involve him proclaiming his intense attachment to Batman. “You complete me,” he says to Bats in The Dark Knight. “Don’t leave me,” he shouts in video games when the hero dies. It’s a topic he loves to bring up at a climactic showdown with Batman, and it’s a reality the World’s Greatest Detective refuses to acknowledge.


Summly and Yahoo refused to comment on the deal’s terms.
One of the most discussed potential use cases of the block chain is as a decentralized Uber. Instead of using an app, customers could order a car and pay the driver directly, cutting out the middleman. (Sorry, Travis Kalanick.) The block chain can be utilized for everything from the storage of secure documents (that is, a decentralized Dropbox, too) to “watermarking,” in which a specific coin could contain, say, the deed to your house. “The block chain is going to spawn decades of innovation,” says Ryan Selkis, director of investments at the Digital Currency Group, created by former SecondMarket founder Barry Silbert. “It could lead to things like frictionless share issuance, title transfers, smart contracts. Collectively these things make up the backbone of the economy. If you wanted to create a decentralized Uber, Dropbox, Facebook, you could reinvent the Internet.”

13 He doesn’t dwell on his painful memories

Forex reserves fell $87bn in November, near the record $94bn decline suffered in August — the same month that the central bank surprised global markets by allowing the renminbi to depreciate by 3 per cent in three days.
“Who’s going to pay for that?” said Marc J. Luxemburg, the president of the Council of New York Cooperatives and Condominiums. “This has a real-world cost for many buildings.”

On the other hand, the Joker’s origin has always been murky. Whether it was a factory accident or a mob hit or Batman himself, there is no consistent, agreed-upon tale that explains how the Joker became this way. The Joker himself doesn’t care— in a scene from the 2013 video game Arkham Origins (and inspired by The Killing Joke), Joker rebels against the very idea of having to deal with painful memories, something that anyone can relate to.

To a viewer watching The New Batman Adventures, hearing the Joker say “I’m crazy enough to take on Batman, but the IRS? Nooo, thank you!” felt like a breath of fresh air. For a brief instant, viewers identified with the Joker in his fear of dealing with taxes. More than a few probably thought that, if they had to choose between doing their taxes and a life of crime, they might pick the latter.


10 He doesn’t work for free

Heath Ledger as the Joker in The Dark Knight

The Joker is a lot of things, but one of his defining characteristics (at least in The Dark Knight) is his practicality. He offers a service to the organized crime bosses of Gotham, and he knows it’s a service no one else can deliver: to kill the Batman. He knows there’s a lucrative market for his services, so he says to the bosses: “If you’re good at something, never do it for free.

9 He finds sanity unpleasant

Batman Puts the Joker in a Lazarus Pit

In Legends of the Dark Knight #145, the Joker dies and Batman takes his corpse to the Lazarus Pits, which have the capacity to revivify any mortal. Everyone who emerges from the pit acts oddly for a little while, and for the Joker, this manifests as a brief moment of sanity.

He did several makeup tests to get the look that would so dramatically change Mr. Carell. “We were literally creating a new human being,” Mr. Corso said.



8 He believes in "One Bad Day"

Joker in The Killing Joke

Another recurring theme for the Joker is his insistence that normal, everyday people are closer to madness than you think. He makes this point in many of his appearances, but it might be a famous quote from The Killing Joke that says it best: “all it takes is one bad day.”

Bernard Baumohl, chief global economist of the Economic Outlook Group, said he is even more optimistic. "The next two years could be the best two we have seen in at least a decade," he said. "There is clearly a lot of evidence the economy is gaining a lot of momentum."

7 His bodycount in Suicide Squad is lower than Batman's in Batman v Superman

DCEU Suicide Squad Joker

The Joker wasn’t much of a player in the final cut of David Ayers’ Suicide Squad, but that actually ends up being to his advantage for the purposes of this list. See, while his gang may shoot a lot of prison guards, Joker himself kills very few people. And while Batman supposedly has one ultimate rule for never killing anyone, criminal or otherwise, he sure kills a lot of criminals in Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman.

It was a puzzling moment for Batfans to see Batfleck crush, blow up, and run over criminals in Batman v Superman. Most incarnations of Batman avoid killing anyone, but apparently the DC Cinematic Universe didn’t think that was right for the character.

China’s reserves have fallen for nine of 11 months this year and stand at $3.43tn, as investors sell renminbi assets to protect themselves against depreciation and the central bank sells dollars from its reserves to curb renminbi weakness. Falling interest rates in China and expectations of an imminent rate rise by the US Federal Reserve have also fuelled outflows.

3 He knows nobody can out-crazy him

Nicholson Joker Promotional Still

This famous scene in Tim Burton’s 1989 Batman may be better known for Joker’s other major quote (“Ever danced with the Devil in the pale moonlight?”), but the real wisdom comes later. Wayne attempts to intimidate the Joker by waving a poker around, shouting “Let’s get nuts!” To the Joker, of course, this is simply laughable.


Naturally, the Joker isn’t scared in the slightest, and after shooting Bruce Wayne, he says “never rub another man’s rhubarb.” On the surface, this remark rebukes Bruce for muscling in on Vicki Vale, whom the Joker fancies. But it works better to remind Bruce that it is useless to act crazy around the Joker—there is no amount of madness that scares the Clown Prince of Crime. It’s a miscalculation on the part of Batman, who’s lucky to escape with his life.


2 He embraces the madness of the world

Batman and the Joker Share a Twisted Laugh

The Killing Joke was an instant classic in the Batman canon, largely because it articulated the Joker’s worldview in a painfully honest, philosophical manner. In a signature monologue from the tale, the Joker says that what drove him off the deep end was simply realizing what a terrible joke the entire world was.

“The worker threw a brick through the window with the words ‘I quit’ written on it.”

Here are the news events that the search engine Baidu says most captured Internet users' attention in 2015:

The Joker adheres to an extremely cynical brand of nihilism, taking an absurdist view on mankind’s suffering. It’s hard to make a viewpoint like that resonate with viewers, but The Killing Joke succeeded, if only for a moment.
