Will DC Comics finally reveal The Joker’s true identity?
According to IGN, fans would soon find out who this fictional super villain is. “Justice League” writer Geoff Johns and artist Jason Fabok confirmed they will be revealing the identity of the Joker in Justice League #50. The creative team behind “Justice League” made the announcement during the DC Rebirth event at WonderCon.
The “Suicide Squad” villain is known as Batman’s archenemy. In a previous “Justice League” issue, the Dark Knight already found out what “Joker’s true name” is. Issue #42 found Batman sitting on the Mobius Chair. According to IGN, the Chair granted him “access to all knowledge.” He first asked the chair who killed his parents and the Chair confirmed that it was Joe Chill. He then asked, “What’s the Joker’s true name?” The chair did respond. But Batman alone heard the answer. Justice League #50 will finally clue fans in to what the Caped Crusader heard.
“The answer probably won’t be an answer people predict,” Johns told IGN. The origins of this Gotham City terrorist has always been a mystery. In “The Killing Joke,” the Joker himself said, “If I’m going to have a past, I prefer it to be multiple choice!”
With the upcoming reveal, Movie Pilot said, Johns and Fabok will “bring one of the biggest comic fan debates to rest.” Who is the man behind Joker? The movie blog earlier came up with two possible suspects: Thomas Wayne and Alfred. Batman’s dad, Thomas, is famously dead. Alfred, on the other hand, is Batman’s loyal butler. But some fans still speculate that either one could be the Joker. Could they be right?
Who is the Joker, really? Fans will have to wait for the upcoming comic book issue to find out. Justice League #50 is set to hit bookstores on May 25.
