It’s been nearly a decade that we lost the most powerful live comic book actor, Heath Ledger, who died on 22nd January in 2008, from an overdose of painkillers. All above, no other actor in the history of Joker lived the character so well than Heath Ledger. Created by Jerry Robinson, Bill Finger and Bob Kane, the iconic comic book character first appeared in Batman #1 in 1940. He is popularly known to be a crime lord of Gotham City.
“All it takes is one bad day to reduce the sanest man alive to lunacy. That’s how far the world is from where I am. Just one bad day. You had a bad day once. Am I right? I know I am. I can tell. You had a bad day and everything changed. Why else would you dress up like a flying rat? You had a bad day, and it drove you as crazy as everybody else… Only you won’t admit it!” says Joker.
Remembering his short yet fascinating legacy as Joker, we bring you four awesome abilities that reflect his wickedness and insanity.
1. Pain resistance
Joker is highly resistant to pain and enjoys being in that state. No wonder. His constant exposure to chemicals has increased his power of tolerance of pain that he deals so casually with it. So is he laughing wickedly because of this? Man, we just have solved a Joker riddle.
2. Contaminated blood
Yes, he has contaminated blood but that’s totally cool for him but nit his bloodsuckers. Who sucks his blood by the way? I am talking about mosquitoes here. Being immune to poisons and a regular consumer of his own products, a mosquito can choke on his tainted blood if it penetrates its needle and sucks his blood. So all the bloodsucker, get this now or you will die like a mosquito.
3. Cosmic Sense
We generally see him as one of the fully aware comic book characters, but there have been times where he directly conversed with comic book readers and this is something you would never expect from comic books. But Joker has it.
4. Death Cheater
There have been several instances where Joker escaped the death in lethal predicaments. After being shot repeatedly, gutted in explosions, electrocuted and falling from great heights, this man always shows us how badass and stubborn he is in cheating death.
