On a crazed homicidal level...did Nicholsons Jker display ANY hint of being the kind of guy who would kill and torture people the way he does in the comics? Aside from a hygiene product that kills you with a smile...any ruthless crowbar beatings? And torturing of a girl while her dad is helpless to stop it? So, either he aced that, or he was a second rate homicidal maniac.
I don't think killing your own henchman with the guy's own gun, killing another guy with a pen, and frying a guy with a joy buzzer is second-rate homicidal stuff. At least in this era.
