Re: The Joker A Reality?
There are various real-life serial killers that some people would describe as almost as flamboyant and insane, though extremely lucid, as the Joker - Charles Manson being one of them. Listening to him in interviews was eerie, because he's so similar. He's not as violent as the Joker probably would be, and he constantly makes self-depreciating claims like, "Look, man! I'm just a simple car thief," and so on. But, yes. Given the right set of circumstances, someone like the Joker could exist.
