Rick Baker’s “Joker” Design Is The Sickest (and Coolest) Thing Ever


The Joker is one of the greatest (if not THE greatest) fictional bad guy of all time. From his iconic looks to the many ways he has been represented on-screen and in comics, there is no one on this planet who does not know who the Joker is. And while many may be talking about Jared Leto’s new Joker/Marylin Manson look, have you ever wondered what The Joker would have looked like if special effects genius Rick Baker would have designed him? Well, be prepared to see what might be the coolest Joker interpretation ever.


What do you even say about that? For those who don’t know, Joker lost his face recently in the comics and had it re-attached, so the look actually goes with the new 52 DC lineup quite well. My only thoughts are, why is THIS version not making it onto the screen? Perhaps a bit too scary for the kids.

Hell, that may even be a bit too scary for some adults. Still, the Joker should inspire fear. I, for one, love it. You? Leave your thoughts in our comments!
