The Joker's fatal illness?

#1ReaperkenswolfPosted 4/8/2011 7:22:50 PM
Just read the sneak peek to the prequel comic for Arkham City. Joker narrates this pretty much just stating how Batman beat him at the end of Arkham Asylum. However, he mentions another little doosy. Apparently, the Titan formula screwed with his body and he is now slowly dying. Do you guys really think he's gonna die in Arkham City? Yes or No?

I'm gonna go with no for now, only because of what was said in the gameplay trailer. Of course if it's Hamill's last time Joker they could potentially kill him off, but that's not something I'd imagine Paul Dini (is he still writing this?) would want to do.
You're pretty good! (b='_' )b=

I agree. I don't think Dini is willing to kill off the Joker. It will be interesting to see how the comics and the scene from the gameplay trailer can eventually mesh together though, and make sense...

In the newest trailer, Joker is seen walking toward the screen, smiling of course, and Batman says he was faking the whole time saying there is nothing wrong with him (Joker). Joker then says he (Batman) of all people should know there is something wrong with him.

So no, Joker will not die. Even without this trailer I think everyone knows Joker wouldn't die. And I don't mean that in a bad way. They're just not going to kill the Joker like that.

Ever heard of Joker Immunity? Yeah, he's the trope namer for that.

It would be a massive surprise if in fact, he did die. But I seriously doubt it. If anything, everything is just a joke, one that it may appear even Batman fell for based on the trailer.

yeah I wouldn't be surprised if Joker was faking, its Joker we're talking about. Trying to gets sympathy from someone, only to torture/kill/use later on. Yeah of course he'c gonna suffer side affects, that's a given, but I don't think they'll be fatal.

The fact that very few people are willing to believe Joker in itself makes it seem like the sort of thing that'd happen.

Hell, Joker himself'd make it happen just to prove you all wrong.
