Actor’s name: The Joker
The Joker has a personality of persistent, fearless, high intelligence, and aggression.
The Joker holds a strength of being persistent in the things he does. He makes sure that his plans will turn out as how he planned it to be. Even though there were complication in between, he makes sure he finds alternatives to get his job done. Take for an example, when the top mob members of the Gotham city were having a meeting discussing about the illegal money stash has been tracked down by the police officers. Joker shows up and proposed a plan to help the mobsters to find a better way to deal with their business in the future which includes in killing Batman and by taking half cut of the money as reward. Because Gambol thinks that the plan was ridiculous, they declined it and threatened to kill The Joker. This however did not stop him. He took the alternative in pretending to be killed by other gang members just so he could get closer to Gambol, to show that he has power to order people to do things for him …show more content…
This personality can help him to find the ways to complete whatever he thinks that it is important. For instance, Batman is catching the criminals continuously as this is what he wanted to do when he started to be Batman. Batman is a rule-oriented person. This can be good because Batman would not easy to be seduced by any person with any offer as he barely break his own rules. Hence, Batman is considered as a thoughtful person as he would think about any possible consequences before he takes any action. And yet, this may become his weakness. It is because he would be inflexible in his life whenever he is facing problems and situations. For example, a few people died because of Batman indirectly. It is because he could not fulfill the Joker’s request which he has to show his real face to the public. He suffered and almost surrender to the
Another common thing that the Joker does is that he attempts to conceal the true reasons for his actions. In other words, the Joker uses defense mechanisms to distance himself from reality as a means to protect himself from the horrid things he has done (Friedman & Schustack, 2009). He demonstrates the specific defence mechanism of rationalization and he does this by trying to justify murdering Harvey Dent's, a pivotal character to the film's plot, girlfriend. He explains to Dent that her death was not his fault and he does such things (i.e., killing innocent people) to show others how pathetic they are for believing that they have control in their lives “ “ (De La Noy & Nolan,
The Joker has many unsettling characteristics about him. Such as his impulsivity, lack of remorse, and insanity. He is extremely out of touch with reality, after an accident in his early life, he totally lost his mind. He has no sense if reality, or remorse, making him a great fit for a supervillain. He had no clear reason to why he wants to cause chaos, no issues with anyone in Gotham, no grudge against anyone, he simply does it for
The Joker, is a purposeless criminal. He will destroy anything, or anyone who gets in his way, just to accomplish his goal, to break Batman's personal rules, to never kill or harm anyone, but to save Gotham City from danger and
The Joker has no alter ego. He walks around the way he is with his deformed face full of scars and in some versions, with his bright colored hair and bleached skin, always with that maniac, chilling laughter which always makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up. He has no personal agenda to all the brutality he inflicts, no thirst for revenge or materialistic goals made him reach this point. He lives to dismantle the codes the society lives by and all he hopes for is to rip apart the expected codes of morality, so the people can then be free of any faith, any belief of right or wrong. He creates situations for the people of his town
At the beginning of the movie we are introduced to the Joker who is set on creating mayhem and villainy for the sheer sport of it. All he wants is to bring the world down to his level and make them see through his eyes and thus understand that all men are inherently evil.He is antisocial in all ways, but seems to have more realism than anyone else. He robs a bank that is owned by Gotham’s gangs and by doing so makes himself a target for them. Batman is left puzzled by this a strained villain who seems to pose no real threat, except that he needs to be caught. Through the movie Joker is seemly one-step ahead of Batman until the District Attorney, Harvey Dent, realizes that The Joker is a mad genius and needs to be sought after.
The Dark Knight is a 2008 film based on the Dc Comics character Batman and his struggle and journey in combating the most demented villain ever, The Joker. The Joker is a psychopathic, mass murdering, schizophrenic clown with zero empathy. Due to The Joker’s insane nature, it is appropriate to use Dr. Sigmund Freud’s method of Psychoanalysis to better understand why The Joker is the way he is.
He is fearless in protecting his home, Gaetland, as well as the people of Danes and King Hrothgar. He easily gains the people’s trust and proves that he is reliable. Like Beowulf, Batman is also a loyal
There are many other reasons as to why Bruce Wayne is not just a superhero but rather a person who has a disorder. When he "switches" from Bruce Wayne to Batman, he does not even notice. It is almost as if it is automatic. Nobody realizes that the respectable businessman Bruce Wayne is Batman by night. It appears that he is Batman for many reasons but a major one is that he fears that something terrible will happen to other people just like it happened to him when he was younger. He tries to save others from getting hurt from outlaws and evildoers.
Many assume that to get from one point to another, similar paths are typically taken. Both the Joker from the Dark Knight and the Islamic state bring chaos into the world with the intention to ultimately cleanse the world of its sinners and uncover what they believe the truth of humanity is. Yet the Joker, however, believes he unveils the truth while ISIS believes they exterminate the lies. Circumstances such as these are similar in its root while opposite in its execution.
Batman is one of the many fictional superheroes which appears in the “American comic books” that is published by the DC comics. The character is a secret identity for Bruce Wayne, the only heir to Wayne Enterprises. Bruce Wayne swore an oath of vengeance when he witnessed the death of his parents;Thomas Wayne and Martha Wayne (Diamond, 2015). Bat man combats criminals in Gotham: a fictional city, with assistance from various characters, for example, his butler Alfred and Gordon; Gotham city police commissioner. Unlike many of the superheroes characters, Batman possesses no powers .Bruce Wayne trained himself intellectually and physically .it is from dedication to training he possessed the useful traits of physical prowess, martial arts skills, detective skills and indomitable will to fight for justice. Though his motive is to combat crime and protect people of Gotham city from criminals, the justice system in most of the times views Batman as a villain and vigilante. He can inflict fear to Gotham city criminals thereby bringing calmness to the city. I identify myself with the Batman character through his selfless will for justice, his strong determination to do good
Let’s start with the joker. Now as see he is just sanding, but look at his fist they are clenched. I thought this was a lot like Kouros. When looking through the book trying to find sculptures that made me think of one of these five images. I know funny how the first one I find to match is to the first image given to me as well as the oldest sculpture for me to refers. This is an Archaic 530 BEC Marble statue, they have yet to hit the perfect human body. Now if you want to get into the psychological side with the joker. He is nowhere near perfect, he is a very twisted and unperfected person. The way his body is presented shows he isn’t quite there, which is also true for the Kouros. They both also have physical feature that aren’t quite right. The joker has his scars on his face and Kouros still lacks details of the normal human being.
Another way in which Batman displays himself as a Byronic hero is his function as a subversive character which refuses to submit to demonic forces. He tries to appear to be a man who is morally upright. However, Batman is unable to separate himself from the pain of his parents ' untimely death, which gives him a new identity as a mysterious masked crime fighter. In most books and films, he tries to put this tragic incident behind him without much success. As Peter J. Tomasi indicates, “instead we see a presentation of Batman’s powers by exacting strange acts in the name of justice like teleporting hotheaded” (1).
It really captured him in the best way possible. The film showed a brilliant criminal mind who got bored doing what normal criminals do. His apathy led him to seek out Batman. He spent the whole movie just trying to make a point that Batman was just as corruptible as the rest of us. He nearly destroyed half of Gotham to in the process, but that was the extent of what he wanted to do. The little dialogue between Batman and the Joker at the police station showed it best. He didn't care about anything, other than chaos. The Joker is a purification about the dark side of a part of us that we don't acknowledge. He is part of the darker side of the way of thinking, not only does he not wants to follow the rules of society, but he actively seeks to destroy the rules as we understand them. In his mind, chaos is the only actual truth in the
Batman’s violent actions in Frank’s Miller comic book demonstrated the darkness of his heroic personality. After ten year retirement, Batman became more troubled to Gotham City turning to a crime-ridden and a fugitive. According to Joseph Campbell words “everything begins with a story”. The beginning of Batman’s story started after the death of his parents. They were shot by some criminals because they were going to steal and hurt them. Having to experienced this horrible scene on his childhood, traumatized Batman
At that point, according to the Joker, they drop their phony façade and behave like the chaotic, selfish animals that we all are. I submit that his motivation is to conduct social experiments to prove himself correct- that at the core people are controlled by their own selfish needs (while he is only controlled by his own delusion of pretentiousness). He has two men fight to the death with one sharp stick between them. He gives two boatloads of people the detonator to bombs on the other ship. He tells Batman that if he [Batman] wants to catch him [the Joker], that he’s going to have to break his One Rule that was brought up at the end of the first movie—to not kill.
