I love Reddit. I’ll admit that I don’t fully understand how it works… but it always provides excellent stuff to waste your precious time on.
Take, for example, this wicked theory on The Joker as a “good guy” in “The Dark Knight” by generalzee :
“I briefly checked the history by doing a few searches and didn’t see anything quite like this, but I apologize if someone else has come up with a similar theory before.
Joker, although a lying psychopath, is actually the hero in The Dark Knight. Before the Joker, Gotham was a mess. Entire sections of the city were closed off due to madness, organized crime ran rampant, and the majority of important city officials were wildly corrupt. The city even tolerated a renegade vigilante who ran around wearing a rubber suit (Okay, special armor and carbon fiber, but they don’t know that).
Along comes the Joker and by the end of a very short time, almost all organized crime was eliminated, many corrupt officials were imprisoned or dead, and the city’s Vigilante even went into hiding for 8 years. This was all part of Joker’s masterfully executed plan.”
