Copycat Jokers



"I don't believe in coincidence." ~ Batman, Justice League, "Starcrossed," 2004.

James Eagan Holmes, 2012.

I have an old posting worthy of revisiting, updated. So do please now find it here: Joker Copycats: 2008-2012. Those essays were first posted in January and March, 2009. They have been moved to a more recent location and revised, in the wake of the Aurora events of July 20, 2012.

"If coincidences are just coincidences, why do they feel so contrived?" ~ Special Agent Fox Mulder, X-Files, "Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose," 1996.

At top, a drawing, from eyewitness descriptions, of 2009's Dendermonde Joker.

I am curious as to why he dyed his hair red, if he was imitating the Joker character. I thought the Joker's hair was green in "The Dark Knight"...

Loren did you hear the story about the lady that was killed that had escaped a mall shooting just a few weeks before and when she had left the mall there was a man dressed as the joker outside the mall?
