The Joker: 10 Most Famous Comic Book Origins Ranked Worst To Best
8. Serenading Harley Quinn
Joker has rarely chosen to associate himself with people, instead preferring to
keep his distance and force others to do his bidding. But the one individual
who he seems to somewhat care for is Harley Quinn, who made her cinematic debut
in Suicide Squad.
that film chose not to go into too much detail about the Joker’s origins, the
comic sees the Prince of Crime opening up to Harley and spinning her a rather
demented tale in a bid to gain her love.
When in Arkham, and she is assigned to
him, Joker tells her that he used to enjoy going to the circus with his father,
who would then relish laughing at the clowns as they dropped their trousers.
However, when his father’s pants dropped, his old man lashed out at a young Joker,
giving him a broken nose and seemingly paving the way for a lifetime of chaos
in the process.
Ranking explained: The reason this ranks so low on the list
is, well, it’s just a bit lame. Try telling that to someone you have your eye
on. Guaranteed it will not have the same effect it did on Harley.
Sport and Film. I love them both.
And I'm extremely lucky to write about two of my biggest passions in life.
Most of the time, I'm at the Daily Express newspaper writing about football, tennis and F1.
But, when I'm out of there, I let my imagination run wild and pen down my thoughts on the film series' I love.
WhatCulture gives me the chance to write about the movie industry - an industry I really care about.
And for that, I'm extremely grateful. And hope you, if you're reading this, enjoy what I think about stuff.
