To conclude the week of my favorite images from Knightfall, I thought I would end it with an image that shows probably the most controversial aspect of Knightfall. The Azrael-Batman. Not only was the idea of Jean-Paul Valley taking over the mantle of Batman controversial, but also the look of his new Batman costume as well. Now I never really liked Jean-Paul Valley as Batman, and I do think his suit is a bit too theatrical for Batman to be wearing, but I have to say, I did…

Editor's Note: The following article is meant to be a take on how the Joker would react to the real world outside of the DC Universe and to current events. The article is also darker because it is in fact coming from the perspective of one of the darkest characters in The Batman Universe. Viewer discretion is advised.

I always thought this image of Bane holding Batman over his head in defeat was a great way to open part 12 of Knightfall in Detective Comics #664. After part 11 ended with the cliffhanger of Bane breaking Batman, I couldn't wait to see what would happen next when I read that issue for the first time. But when I looked at this image on the first page of Detective Comics #664, I knew things were about to go from bad to worse, as it showed me Batman…

The most iconic image from Knightfall! The breaking of the Bat! Bane's claim to fame has always been that he was the one who broke Batman, and the image of him doing so in Batman #497 has become one of the most memorable images in Batman's history. While I absolutely loved seeing this moment brought to life in "The Dark Knight Rises," this is the image that still has the biggest impact on me of showing Batman actually being defeated and broken.

One of the things I liked best about Knightfall was Bane's plan to drain Batman both mentally and physically by breaking out all of Arkham's inmates, and having them wreak havoc on Gotham. In probably the most memorable encounter Batman had before his fight with Bane, Batman goes up against the Joker and Scarecrow, where he is sprayed with Scarecrow's fear toxin, and sees images of Joker killing Jason Todd. This all leads to Joker receiving a massive beat down from Batman, as he is screaming Jason's name…

Knightfall is a special story for me. It's the first story that got me to become a full fledged comic book collector as a young kid, and because of that, there are several images from that Batman story that have always stuck out to me. So to kick off my favorite images from Knightfall, I thought it would be best to show my favorite image of the main villain from the story. Bane. Since his introduction, Bane has gone through several costume designs in the comics, several animated…

Our final image of the Man Who Laughs is a classic panel from Alan Moore's "The Killing Joke," from which Tim Burton based the origin for Nicholson's Joker. Here we see the wide-brimmed hat, yet again. The hat always terrified me as a kid, perhaps because it shadows his face and his grin is all that much more prominent. Seen here sitting on a throne, this is the perfect way to see the Joker. Sitting atop a throne surrounded by the carcasses of cast away dolls, in an…

Lee Bermejo's depiction of the Joker is chilling, sadistic, and truly scary. The cut mouth is reminiscent of Heath's own interpretation of the character. Also, notice the noir-esque feel to the Clown Prince. This might be my all-time favorite rendering of Joker. Bermejo seriously did an amazing job on this book, and for those of you who are fans of the Joker, this book which is of course titled "Joker" is worth the buy and is terrifying in its presentation by both Azzarello's dialogue and script and Bermejo's…
