I thought it was interesting that the Joker in TDK borrowed some elements from real life killers or psychos, grounding him more in reality, while on the other hand, keeping the trademark theatrical, flamboyant, unrealistic characteristics. Great balance imo.

Even though Nolan secularized the mythology, it still lies within the realm of fantasy.
