There are times in comics, for example “The Killing Joke”, that have more or less proven this point. For example, at the end of the comic, while the two stand in the rain waiting for the police to arrive, the Joker tells Batman a joke. The Jokers is practically hysterically laughing at this point, but a small moment passes, and then…. Batman joins him. At first it’s a small chuckle, but very soon he is cackling alongside the crook. Some believe this is where the Joker truly breaks the Bat, making said hero a little more like himself. But there are, of course, several ways that they are different. One being the obvious, Batman being The Dark Knight, the other, The Clown Prince of Crime. Now, while they both come from terrible tragedies, Batman has chosen the side of good.

    The best villain I know is from one of my favorite books, “Horses of the Dawn”. The villain in this story is the ship owners because they abused the horses and the ones that were useless they threw out at sea. This really isn’t my favorite villain, but this was the only one I could think of. Before you go ranting about how I’m a so called animal hater.
