Re: The Joker A Reality?
While not on the same level as the Joker, if Ted Bundy had bigger plans than "rape, kill, and then have sex with the bodies of young girls" he could have probably been a real life version of the Joker. He was charming, serene, charismatic, and a monster. He even escaped from jail, in broad daylight, and was only caught cause he got sloppy when he resumed killing (in Florida, he moved across the country from the west coast).
If you were to take someone like him, and give him the drive of someone like a Charles Manson or Osama Bin Laden, you could easily have a real life Joker.
