The History of Joker Explained | The Ringer

by The Ringer

With the release of ‘Joker,’ directed by Todd Phillips, The Ringer’s Jason Concepcion goes all the way back to 1940 to break down the Joker’s full history within the Batman universe. We cover nearly every Joker appearance, going from his debut in ‘Batman’ No. 1 to the extremely grim 1988 one-shot ‘Batman: The Killing Joke,’ and even all of the onscreen portrayals of the famous villain.
