Joker may not be the strongest villain in comics, but he sure is the
sickest. Whenever you think you have seen him at his worst, The Clown
Prince of Crime manages to one up himself with something so twisted it
would make the Devil blush.
Even during his first appearance, the killer wasted no time and murdered multiple people over his eleven-page
debut. Over the years that followed, The Joker kept up his fearful
reputation and these days, he can do nothing to shock us. Yet the lack
of surprise doesn't help readers feel any less nauseous when he kills his own mother or literally melts Batman's face off.
most terrifying thing about the character is that, because he isn't
superpowered, he has to come up with highly elaborate ways of hurting
his victims. Yet, they always have some sense of realism to them. The
idea that a man could think up such depraved acts is almost scarier than
the acts themselves, and it's that fear that gives him control over
not everyone likes to fall in line. This means The Clown Prince of Crime has had to
make regular examples of those who would dare wrong him. For those
unlucky victims, they experience the full horror that The Joker can unleash.
