Most Underrated Versions of The Joker

The Joker is my all-time favorite DC villain and my favorite villain in general! Ever since he’s been created, there have obviously been so many versions of the character that include the comics, cartoons, movies, etc. My personal favorite iteration of him from the comics is the one from The Killing Joke. My personal favorite iteration of him from the movies is Heath Ledger’s. They’re both absolutely fantastic. But which Jokers do you guys think are severely overlooked? :joker_smilehqtas:

i think the 00s batman series joker is kind of underrated because of how much they changed the design and his personality a bit

but i really like him and i think he deserves more love
i mean as much love as joker could deserve
since he’s a horrible person and all

I also really like the Telltale Joker, John Doe, because he’s kind of just a sweet dumba$s in the beginning

I would pick the filmation of the first animated Joker, that was the first cartoon of Joker I ever liked before Mark Hamill Joker. :grinning:

Ahhh! The Batman cartoon’s Joker is underrated. I thought he was pretty cool and horrifying at the same time.
The Telltale Joker is also really awesome too, since you could also make him a vigilante in the game. That’s a very interesting take on the Joker, though I feel it took slight inspiration by the way he acts in White Knight if he does become a vigilante.
And Lego Batman Movie Joker is just hilarious!

Batman ‘66/Cesar Romero

I think the mustache turned people away, but he’s genuinely a terrifying joker. And that laugh will haunt me. It sounds almost inhuman.

So I figured I would post this here. It’s not an underrated version of the Joker but someone who I think would make a great Joker. Hear me out. Willem Dafoe. He would make a great Joker in my opinion. And also I think that the Long Halloween Joker is underrated

Willem Dafoe is great, but I see him more as a live-action Arkham Joker. I feel if he was in his prime, he would be a perfect Joker in general. But now, I don’t see that anymore. He’s too old.
And yes, Long Halloween Joker is underrated. I really loved Tim Sale’s design of the character as well.

But in this video, he is so awesome and just chilling as the Joker. I just see him as Arkham Joker.
