Good Morning Geekery #10

Welcome to the tenth  edition of Good Morning Geekery! Every Monday and Friday morning @ 9am we’ll be posting geeky and nerdy questions and want to get your opinions. They could be from comics, gaming, my first year biology textbook, or any other area of geek and nerd culture. After all, what’s more fun than a Never Ending Raging Debate?!

Good Morning Geekery # 10

July 20th is almost upon us! Light the bat symbol! The Dark Knight Rises!

Bring it on!

In honour of this glorious day we will have a Good Morning Geekery each day this week dealing with different aspects of the Batverse.

So, the week of Batman continues;

One of the most iconic villains in the Batverse is obviously the Joker. The crazy clown has been played by a few different actors throughout the years.

Who is your favourite Joker and why?

Heath Leger (2008)

Jack Nicholson (1989)

Cesar Romero (1966)

Mark Hamill (Yes he was from the animated series’ but he was Joker for almost 20 yrs!)

One thought on “Good Morning Geekery #10

  1. Ledger. He’s so self-aware that he’s an agent of chaos that it gives me shivers. The whole monologue with Dent at the hospital strikes to the core of his Joker and makes me love him.

    from http://www.whysanity.net

    Joker: Do I really look like a guy with a plan? You know what I am? I’m a dog chasing cars. I wouldn’t know what to do with one if I caught it. You know, I just… do things. The mob has plans, the cops have plans, Gordon’s got plans. You know, they’re schemers. Schemers trying to control their little worlds. I’m not a schemer. I try to show the schemers how pathetic their attempts to control things really are. So, when I say… Ah, come here.
    (He takes Dent’s hand into his own)
    Joker: When I say that you and your girlfriend was nothing personal, you know that I’m telling the truth. It’s the schemers that put you where you are. You were a schemer, you had plans, and look where that got you.
    (Dent tries to grab the Joker.)
    Joker: I just did what I do best. I took your little plan and I turned it on itself. Look what I did to this city with a few drums of gas and a couple of bullets. Hmmm? You know… You know what I’ve noticed? Nobody panics when things go “according to plan.” Even if the plan is horrifying! If, tomorrow, I tell the press that, like, a gang banger will get shot, or a truckload of soldiers will be blown up, nobody panics, because it’s all “part of the plan.” But when I say that one little old mayor will die, well then everyone loses their minds!
    (Joker hands Two-Face a gun and points it at his forehead.)
    Joker: Introduce a little anarchy. Upset the established order, and everything becomes chaos. I’m an agent of chaos. Oh, and you know the thing about chaos? It’s fair!
    (still holding the gun, Two-Face pauses and takes out his half-scarred coin.)
    Two-Face: (shows the clean side) You live.
    Joker: Mm-hmm.
    Two-Face: (shows the scarred side) You die.
    Joker: Mmm, now we’re talking.
