A superhero wouldn’t be as good if he didn’t have an arch nemesis, and we know that the Joker brings out the best (or worst) in Batman. While they hunt and fight each other with a passion, there seems to be an underlying bad bromance somewhere in there.
As the Joker said to Batman:
I don’t want to kill you! What would I do without you? Go back to ripping off mob dealers? No, no, NO! No. You… you… complete me.
The Joker may be one of the worst villains ever, but he’s also one of the most captivating ones. For this week’s Fandom Friday, let’s put the spotlight on this mad man.
