Some people like “bad guys.” I might admire their intellect, courage, determination, creativity or leadership, but I never liked “bad guys.” So when people tell me that they love a “bad guy” I’m a little perplexed. One of the favorite “bad guys” is the sociopath adversary “The Joker.”
This series of pages from Batman: The Killing Joke. This comic was written by Alan Moore with art by Brian Bolland and John Higgins. Batman: The Killing Joke, illustrates why I love heroes instead of villains.
Though The Joker was a murdering killer Batman still saw some virtue in him.
That’s a lesson I’ve learned from many, but this Batman was a hero who helped me to see the hope amid the horror of life.
