Re: The Official Batman (1989) Thread - Part 3
But what did he mean when he said to Batman
"You dropped me into that vat of chemicals. That wasn't easy to get over and don't think that I didn't try"?
That could mean he did snap and lost his mind at the sight of his disfigurement. That what he looked like before (his idea of perfect) was destroyed and he did try to cope by doing what he did. His mind could have coped by convincing himself that what he's looking at as 'perfection'.
He's a man who believes his own bull****. He genuinely doesn't see himself as a killer as the Joker, but rather chillingly as an artist painting a pretty picture. He see's himself as art and everything he does as art.
