Along with Batman, Spider-Man, and Superman, the Joker stands out as one of the most recognizable comics characters in popular culture. While there has been a great deal of scholarly attention on superheroes, very little has been done to understand supervillains. This is the first academic work to provide a comprehensive study of this villain, illustrating why the Joker appears so relevant to audiences today. Batman’s foe has cropped up in thousands of comics, numerous animated series, and three major blockbuster feature films since 1966. Actually, the Joker debuted in DC comics Batman 1 (1940) as the typical gangster, but the character evolved steadily into one of the most ominous in the history of sequential art. Batman and the Joker almost seemed to define each other as opposites, hero and nemesis, in a kind of psychological duality. Scholars from a wide array of disciplines look at the Joker through the lens of feature films, video games, comics, politics, magic and mysticism, psychology, animation, television, performance studies, and philosophy. As the first volume that examines the Joker as complex cultural and cross-media phenomenon, this collection adds to our understanding of the role comic book and cinematic villains play in the world and the ways various media affect their interpretation. Connecting the Clown Prince of Crime to bodies of thought as divergent as Karl Marx and Friedrich Nietzsche, contributors demonstrate the frightening ways in which we get the monsters we need.

True happiness begins in the heart. Our memories and emotions can play tricks on us, though, and divert oneÕs reality into something completely different. The Batman Who Laughs has based his entire worldview on this very concept, and it is in this moment that he must finally confront the one man who stands in his way, the one man who could complete or halt his planÉthe last Bruce Wayne. It is here, on the home turf of Wayne Manor, that Bruce relives the happiest moment of his lifeÑthe moment he became the Batman Who Laughs. Will Batman be able to outthink the Dark Multiverse version of himself and stop his most sinister end? Or will the original Dark Knight succumb fully and let go of his morality? While good almost always wins, this issue is the start of something moreÉsetting up a larger plan based in the ultimate betrayal of infection, loyalty and true happiness. This is not the endÉitÕs only the beginning.

The Man Who Laughs features one of Hugo's most compelling characters, Gwynplaine, a boy whose face has been forcibly deformed to appear as though he is always smiling. After being attacked and abandoned, Gwynplaine finds a blind, orphaned infant in the wilderness. Nearly starving himself, he carries the dying baby to a nearby shack, the home of carnival performer, Ursus, and his pet wolf, Homo.?The story continues as Ursus takes care of Gwynplaine and the baby, Dea, using Gwynplaine and his clown-like deformity in a comedic performance at fairs and carnivals to make money. Gwynplaine falls in love with Dea, and just before confessing his love, is taken away by Wapentake, a servant of Queen Anne. After an incredibly interesting series of events, Gwynplaine escapes to reunite with his family, but he may be too late.?Although one of Hugo's more obscure works, The Man Who Laughs has been alluded to in several contemporary films and writings. H.G. Wells'?The Island of Doctor Moreau refers to the novel when Moreau is explaining the nature of his crazy experiments. J.D. Salinger's Nine Stories features a short story entitled The Laughing Man featuring a disfigured character. Most notably, the appearance of the Joker from the famous Batman comics and movies was inspired by the clown-like, permanent smile of Gwynplaine. While certainly not his most famous work, Hugo's The Man Who Laughs has made a lasting impression, even over 100 years after it was written.

Why doesn't Batman just kill the Joker and end everyone's misery? Can we hold the Joker morally responsible for his actions? Is Batman better than Superman? If everyone followed Batman's example, would Gotham be a better place? What is the Tao of the Bat? Batman is one of the most complex characters ever to appear in comic books, graphic novels, and on the big screen. What philosophical trials does this superhero confront in order to keep Gotham safe? Combing through seventy years of comic books, television shows, and movies, Batman and Philosophy explores how the Dark Knight grapples with ethical conundrums, moral responsibility, his identity crisis, the moral weight he carries to avenge his murdered parents, and much more. How does this caped crusader measure up against the teachings of Plato, Aristotle, Kant, Kierkegaard, and Lao Tzu?
