  3. Feature-Length Fan Film Joker Rising Might Not Be Legal But Sure Has A Lot of Fans

And as loathe as we are to celebrate someone else's misery... actually, I guess we're not, especially when it's this funny!

  6. DC Comics Reveals New Joker Design on Batgirl Cover

    The world of comics is something of an oddity. Due to the publishing patterns of the various ongoing series, comics are often finished way ahead of their release. For example, the new design for Batman's archenemy, Joker, wasn't intended to be viewed in full until Batman #13 releases on October 10th. Unfortunately, DC Comics has released a new batch of covers which just so happens to include a complete image of the clown on a Batgirl cover a bit prematurely. Beyond this point, there be spoilers.

    Poisoning talk show audiences [spoilers at link] and blowing up hospitals is bad enough, but discouraging promising students? That's just evil. (Reddit via BuzzFeed)
