Who’s your Joker?

batman   WHO’s YOUR JOKER?

Batman Arkham Asylum: A serious House on Serious Earth by Grant Morrison and Dave McKean is a graphic novel dealing with the two most infamous icons of our generation, Batman and Joker.   Beautiful art work exists throughout this book making it a pleasure to read.  Beyond that lies a story of survival and dependency. 

Sure Batman has built a reputation over the years as being heroic and outgoing but he is nothing without his nemesis, The Joker.  The Joker is psychotic and passes the point of crazy.  As such, Batman spends most of his time trying to undue the works of Joker and his men and other inmates.

The Joker is the Ying to Batman’s Yang. Batman needs The Joker in order to remain sane and The Joker needs Batman to have the feeling of being pursued and important. The Joker suppresses the craziness down inside of Batman because he is crazy enough by himself.

We all have a Joker in our lives that we spend countless times trying to prove ourselves to or trying to stop them from destroying our dreams.  Yet, somehow they create a perfect balance in our life’s by causing us to reach levels we have never reached or come to realizations about our self that make us a better person.

    The Joker is just a really good villain to me. I’m a die hard Superman fan and when I think of really great villains Lex Luthor is the first one to pop into my head.
