Bio:
If I'm going to have a past, I prefer it to be multiple choice! ...

Notes:
The behind-the-scenes origin of the Joker is obscure, mainly because "the big three" early Batman creators--Bob Kane, Bill Finger and Jerry Robinson--all claim to have created him. Robinson says that the Joker was simply inspired by the playing card, but Finger points to the 1927 film, The Man Who Laughs. There is room for both points of view as both are likely to be true in some regard. It is somewhat eerie, however, just how much Conrad Veidt's "Gwynnplaine" from the film--a young gypsy whose face is cut into a permanent grin--matches up with the most prevalent early images of the character. Finger's son has said in later years that there was a strong relationship between the Joker's visual form and a face on the entrance to the Steeplechase Pavilion of the Fun at Coney Island amusement park.

In several stories, the Joker is referred to as "Jack" before he becomes the Joker. However, this is not confirmed to be his real name.

"you ever dance with the devil in the pale moon light"

""If I weren't crazy!, I'd be insane!" - Batman:dark detective "

"(To Batman) All it takes is one bad day to reduce the sanest man alive to lunacy. That’s how far the world is from where I am: just one bad day. You had a bad day once, am I right? I know I am. I can tell. You had a bad day and everything changed—why else would you dress up like a flying rat? You had a bad day, and it drove you as crazy as everybody else…only you won’t admit it! You have to keep pretending that life makes sense; that there’s some point to all this struggling! God, you make me want to puke…It’s all a joke! Everything anybody ever valued or struggled for…it’s all a monstrous, demented gag! So why can’t you see the funny side? Why aren’t you laughing? "

""I did it! I finally killed Batman! In front of a bunch of vulnerable, disabled kids!!!! Now get me Santa Claus!""

""In my dream, the world had suffered a terrible disaster. A black haze shut out the sun, and the darkness was alive with the moans and screams of wounded people. Suddenly, a small light glowed. A candle flickered into life, symbol of hope for millions. A single tiny candle, shining in the ugly dark. I laughed and blew it out.""

"They could put me in a helicopter and fly me up into the air and line up the bodies head to toe on the ground in delightful geometric patterns like an endless June Taylor dancers routine—and it would never be enough. No, I don’t keep count. But you do. And I love you for it."

"Oh, yes! fill the churches with dirty thoughts! Introduce honesty to the white house! Write letters in dead languages to people you've never met! Paint filthy words on the foreheads of children! Burn your credit cards and wear high heels! Asylum doors stand open! Fill the suburbs with murder and rape! Divine madness! Let there be ecstacy, ecstacy in the streets! Laugh and the world laughs with you!"

""Wait Till They Get A Load Of Me" - Jack Nicholson As The Joker In The Official Movie (1989)"

"See I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve"

""Why so serious?" - Heath Ledger as The Joker in The Dark Knight"

"•The guy goes into the hospital, okay? His wife’s just had a baby and he can’t wait to see them both. So he meets the doctor and he says, ‘Oh, Doc, I’ve been so worried. How are they?’ And the doctor smiles and says, ‘They’re fine. Just fine. Your wife’s delivered a healthy baby boy and they’re both in tip-top form. You’re one lucky guy.’ So the guy rushes into the maternity ward with his flowers. But it’s empty. His wife’s bed is empty. ‘Doc?’ He says and turns around and the doctor and all the nurses wave their arms and scream in his face. ‘April fool! Your wife’s dead and the baby’s a spastic!!’” "

""I’m like a dog chasing cars. I wouldn’t know what to do if I caught one…I’d just do things." "I believe… whatever doesn’t kill you simply makes you…stranger." "You know, madness is a lot like gravity… sometimes all you need is a little push." "Introduce a little anarchy, upset the established order, and everything becomes chaos, I’m an agent of chaos , and you know the thing about chaos? It’s fair." "

""I don’t want to kill you. What would I do without you? Go back to ripen off mob dealers, no, no, no, no, you…You complete…me.""

""You… you just couldn’t let me go could you? This is what happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object. You are truly incorruptable aren’t you. You won’t kill me because of some misplaced sense of self-rightousness. And I won’t kill you because…you’re just too much fun. I get the feeling that you and I are destined to do this forever.""

""Shoot the kids and drown the neighbors! We've got a winner!" "

""Kidnapping... it's not just for kids... anymore." "
