The Joker – Psychoanalysis

Moment of Madness – The Joker, The Killing Joke

One of the luxuries of being hospitalized is that you have a lot of time to do stuff. Apart from digging Cosmology and Math, I am reading a lot of comic books as well. Almost all of them are Batman Comics. The richness and variety of the Batman Universe is unparalleled in my opinion. The gallery of villains presents a great potential for psychoanalysis.

I have been obsessed with The Joker for many many years. But, now my focus is on the psychological analysis of him. I have been able to analyze his character layer by layer, in context with modern psychiatric text and it has been an enjoyable experience, so far.

I would like to post my analysis of The Joker in a few posts from now on. Whether it makes any sense or not, I will leave it to you folks.
