It was secretly Commissioner Gordon the whole time! Jinkies!
Considering how politicised comics have become recently (although it does seem to be happening more in Marvel than DC) I wouldn't be surprised if it turned out to be Donald Trump, and then he goes into a censored rant about unsolicited opinions on Mexican wall building.monkeymangler said:IF you do it by internet vote, he'll be one of the following:wizzy555 said:Do it by internet vote.

OT: Think it will last any longer than "Jack" from the Michael Keaton Batman movie?
Even better, just Jo Ker.Li Mu said:
Yeah, I have to agree, Jack Napier's been used for the Joker in the Tim Burton Batman movie and the DC Animated Universe and I never heard anyone complain about it.Ukomba said:No mention of Jack Napier? Come on people, Joker has had a name since 1989.
You're mixing a couple things up: The Joker was the Red Hood first. When Jason (the second Robin, who died and then came back and went nuts) died and then came back and went nuts, he adopted the title, both to remind Batman of his failures, and to match Batman by dressing as something that he (Jason) found frightening: Bruce chose bats, Jason chose the Joker.Sampler said:Isn't the red hood Robin, therefore this former red hood Joker is Robin? (I'll admit my DC knowledge isn't all that up to scratch)
Yeah, I'm not accepting it. He'll always be nameless because that's a piece of him. I'm not considering it cannon.Chester Rabbit said:Yeah sure why not. Go ahead and demystify the fuck out of one of your best villains DC. Go all out.
Okay, sounds kinda interesting. Was the story good? In the spoiler section I mean.Soulrender95 said:They did cure him in the aftermath of Endgame, he and Bruce both had their respective traumas healed and became regular people
I'm guessing Thomas Wayne Senior or his Uncle Philip Kane.
because they toyed with the idea in Flashpoint of one of the Bruces family being the Joker and DC loves to reboot ideas Philip was a member of the Red Hood gang and died protecting Bruce.
But terrible idea all round, the idea of just one bad day creating the Joker from a nobody is the most terrifying aspect of the character, that he could be anyone.
I agree with the first part; I'm not privy to enough comics lore to comment on the part about Wolverine.Darth_Payn said:I can see it in character for Batman to find out the Joker's true identity, because he is the World's Greatest Detective, and mysteries exist to be solved. You can only keep stringing something like that along for so long until you run out of ideas and just reveal it, and if it works, hey! you got more story ideas! Just look at Wolverine.
You need to win an award of some kind for that.Hero in a half shell said:Considering how politicised comics have become recently (although it does seem to be happening more in Marvel than DC) I wouldn't be surprised if it turned out to be Donald Trump, and then he goes into a censored rant about unsolicited opinions on Mexican wall building.
You have missed the most obvious meme. Shame on you!monkeymangler said:
Which given how End Game went, I sadly wouldn't be that surprised.Citizen Graves said:It will probably be something really stupid like Bruce Waynes long lost brother/sister/cousin/nephew/dog or whatever. Or something even stupider. I know! They'll reveal the Joker to be biblical figure and traitor to the messiah, Judas Iscariot, who went completely mental somewhere during his ca. 2000 years of guilt-ridden immortality.
