Ah, I understand. I hope that is explored more. I think the mob henchman origin was also used in TAS, or at least referenced in MOTP.
I do think Nicholson's Joker came across as deadly and insane, but I do agree he lacked scariness. I hope they do an excellent job on Ledger's make-up job. I think he has the right face for the Joker, or at least to use as a base with prosthetics.
