The Arkham Sessions, Ep. 9: “Be a Clown”

Gotham’s most dangerous villain is back—this time, with something to prove!  We’ve deconstructed yet another episode of Batman: The Animated Series which features The Joker! This portrayal of the “psychotic clown” shows his callous, destructive side as well as his jovial, charming nature. We can’t deny that we’re just a little bit into that.  In this episode of The Arkham Sessions, we talk about the Joker’s most likely mental health condition, discuss the personality trait known as “risk-taking,” and question why clowns freak us the bat out!

Listen to the episode on YouTube if that’s what you’re into.

    I always hated the mayor who thinks Batman and… “criminals like the Joker are cut from the same cloth…” Batman is not like the Joker and the others (Poison Ivy, Two-Face,Mad Hatter,etc.) you bastard!
