When you think of The Joker you think of the classic Gotham City villain, the arch-nemesis to Batman and of course the insanity that accompanies his methods and his madness. What you don’t think of is superpowers, or at least I never have, especially when compared to villains such as Deadshot, Bane, Killer Croc or Poison Ivy who all seem to possess what would be classified traditionally as a superpower.
To me, the Joker is a super villain who possesses no superpowers but is still able to get the best of Batman and often the upper hand on a regular basis. While Batman may catch Joker, it’s often not for long as the genius of Joker usually means that his escape is imminent.
While I used to believe that the Joker had zero superpowers after watching the above video from Comic Book Resources, I’m not so sure I was right. The CBR team really lays out a compelling case for 10 superpowers they think that the Joker may have and the evidence is pretty compelling.
What do you think? Is the Joker a super powered super villain? Or just insane? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
