Indeed, after seeing summer hit by the Batmobile and badly injured, people laughed at him, which angered him. His sidekick pointed out to him that it's his job to make people laugh, however. to which the Joker replied that he wants to be laughed at with him, not at him. Weird for a clown, don't you think?

Emotionally and psychologically fragile, the Joker does not tolerate mockery very well. towards him, although he is supposed to to be a clown. Make the gallery laugh, dress ridiculously, make disorderly gestures, that's it! the very essence of what a clown is supposed to be. TO DO. The Joker wants people to laugh, but only on his terms and under his control, like a real sociopath. As you can see, his nickname of Clown Prince of Crime is badly chosen, this villain being far too touchy to ça…
