Re: The Official Batman (1989) Thread - Part 3
I take it that he in the moment when he looks into the plastic surgeon's mirror, he snaps. He's not trying to convince himself that he looks good as a coping mechanism, he truly does think that, he does embrace it, he uses this as a way to start remaking himself and then Gotham. I'm not rejecting complexity or hidden meanings, but I think that when he says, "I'm the world's first fully functioning homicidal artist," that's exactly it. In one of the Simpsons flashback episodes, Marge hands Homer a picture that Bart's just drawn, which we don't see, and Homer looks, then huddles and screams, "Send it to Hell!" I think that's essentially this Joker, an artist who now has the means and ability to pursue his vision. A vision that's the most twisted, gruesome joke.
