I'm Calling It Now: Joker Dies Next Snyder Joker Arc

I dunno, it's just a baseless hunch, but I feel like it's coming. I mean,

>Joker cuts off face for like no reason
>I seriously don't believe he's going to walk around faceless for the rest of his published existence because duh comics
>Probably won't use sci-fi/fantasy reason to fix face because Batman's 2realistic4me (except he's not at all but we pretend he is)
>Snyder tried to make last Joker story a "classic" in vein of Killing Joke, and his sequel is supposed to be about hate, whereas the last was about love
>To "top" himself, he's going to try to do the ultimate Joker story where he finally dies

That way, Snyder could continue his tradition of writing fairly mediocre stories that are hailed as masterpieces that "totally redefine Batman" or some such, Joker dies, putting the no face thing to rest, and by the time another writer inevitably resurrects him, they don't have to deal with the no-face, because why can't a guy who comes back to life also get his face back somehow? I mean comics?

I know this is just a wild guess, but who else can feel Snyder doing the "last Joker story" coming? I bet you my Action Comics #1* that it's happening.

Also, I'm calling that next Joker storyline, rather than wearing his skinned-off face, he just walks around with his exposed no-face flesh to double the edgy.
*Volume 2

That stupid 'no face' idea will be funny in a couple of years. Though, it's funny for my right now.
>>
>>64254688
>Probably won't use sci-fi/fantasy reason to fix face because Batman's 2realistic4me (except he's not at all but we pretend he is)

Somebody doesn't remember the time that Batman broke his back and then had it healed by a physical therapist with magic powers.

It's still a stupid statement, though. If Joker can walk around without a face for months at a time, then he can get a prosthetic face. It's not that hard.

Yeah, it'll be funny in the Tommy Wiseau way. We'll all be laughing about how Snyder thought this was serious literature and how ridiculously grim dark it is.

Since they lost their self awareness in the Silver Age, Capes will always be the butt of the joke. Always.
>>
>>64254688
But they "killed" him in death of the family.
Is dying every time just gonna be the Joker's thing?
>>
>>64254688
Remember that time when an alternate version of Superman from a parallel universe punched a hole in reality and brought Jason Todd back to life?

so when you consider how realistic comics are Joker can get a new face, easy.
>>
>>64254688
I've been assuming that the next time we see the Joker he'll have a face and it won't be explained how/why/if it's a different person/etc.
>>
Would love it if they killed the Joker off. I have not cared for him at all in the New 52.

Just have Dick or Alfred kill him as I think they are the only two who would do it and remain who they are. Also they both carry around guns now. Bruce, Babs, and Jason are too insecure and obsessed with him.

Though in Harley Quinn's 5 years later issue the Joker is alive and has a face.
>>
>>64256040
35-years-in-the-future Joker is also alive and has a face
>>
>>64255865
No they didn't stupid, at the end of DoTF, he was in Arkham with his face back on. Also, he went missing during Forever Evil. Did you even read it or are you being a complete retard?
>>
>>64254688

Snyder here, duuuurrrrrrr hurrrrrrrrrrr

Nobody in comics is officially dead until another character carries them whilst crying
>>
>>64256062
He fell off a cliff and Batman thought he was dead, even said so to the dumb gal who declared herself Joker's Daughter.
>>
>>64256056
Aren't they combining a half dead Bruce and a half dead Joker together 35 years in the future or something?
>>
>>64256097
After that, they found him and put him in Arkham stupid.
>>
>>64254688
wtf is this grimdark shit. Trying to be Killing Joke way too hard.
>>
>>64256056
That's also the future where everyone is dead or a mindless zombie robot.
>>
>>64256120
How is it like Killing Joke? Did you read Killing Joke?
>>
>>64256112
..No. That is, in fact, a lie.
>>
>>64255865
Yeah, but this time, it's gonna be "he's really dead this time folks," I think. Maybe a body or a lot of blood, and Batman saying "he fakes his death all the time but this time I know it's real" or something

>>64255321
>>64255919

Okay, maybe I'm wrong about the "no unrealistic stuff" thing. I mean, I even contradicted myself in the OP when I said they wouldn't use sci-fi/fantasy plot devices, but would also resurrect him.

But, what I do feel pretty sure about is that Snyder is going to kill him off and be "the guy who finally did the ultimate Joker story OMG this will go down in history as a classic OMG Snyder is the next Moore," and that a few years later, he'll come back, face and all, under another writer. Hell, they may not even explain how he got his face back.
>>
>>64256100
no they're both alive

>>64256121
I know, I'm just saying
>>
>>64256120
Snyder is the next Alan Moore. Deal with it.
>>
>>64256160
And then his body will be revealed to be a bum the Joker grabbed to fake his own death.

And they said that Joker left Arkham and hadn't been seen during Forever Evil and he's alive in Future's End.
>>
Joker's best death still comes from a video game. This whole faceless thing has been stupid and will leave its mark on whatever death he gets now.

And he'll still come back the absolute second someone else gets to write.
>>
>>64256205
That scene you posted was a flashback, they flat out say this. And I dunno about Future's End because I don't read it.
>>
>>64256205
WORLD'S. GREATEST. DETECTIVE.

That's not what they said
>>
>>64256165
God, Canary's face is drawn so terribly in that panel. Like Frank is wearing some sort of graphic tee instead of a head grafted into his chest.
>>
>>64256165
Does anyone actually enjoy this?
>>
>>64256272
yes
>>
>>64256160
>"the guy who finally did the ultimate Joker story OMG this will go down in history as a classic OMG Snyder is the next Moore"

I don't think Snyder can even fathom that he'll just be another nameless writer in the history of Batman. All this legacy building is a waste of time.
>>
>>64256237
>That scene you posted was a flashback
No it isn't.
>>64256257
But it does say that Joker decided not to join with the Crime Syndicate.
>>
>>64256272
Future's End is good, how about you read it and stop taking random pages with no context and using it to judge an entire arc stupid.

That's wrong, before this he had an excellent run with Detective Comics.
>>
>>64256371
So did a lot of people. Nobody remembers them.
>>
>>64256370
When will you people who don't read comics and only come here for the movies stop trying to discuss comics with people who do read comics and try and start corporate fanboyism?
>>
>>64256308
>he'll just be another nameless writer in the history of Batman
what on earth makes you say that?

you don't write 70+ popular and acclaimed issues of Batman and get forgotten about
>>
>>64256397
Maybe when CBR let's you autistic fags back in.
>>
>>64256319
>Being this resistant to being told he's wrong

That scene was Batman telling his sidekicks about how stupid he is because he revealed his identity to The Joker but The Joker was too crazy to care so Batman got away with his stupidity
>>
>>64256395
No one who has been forgotten wrote Batman as good and as long as him.
>>
>>64255775
>We'll all be laughing about how Snyder thought this was serious literature

No one who writes comic books thinks they're serious literature, except Alan Moore

Please go back to /tv/.
>>
>>64256406
Yes. Yes, you do. Because whatever you accomplish, it will be wiped clean by your replacement.

That's the nature of comics. Even the mighty Johns will be forgotten in time.
>>
>>64256272

Yeah. It's actually fucking great
>>
>>64256419
The thing I don't understand about you people from /tv/ who come here is that you guys don't read comics, in fact, most of you are opposed to reading any comic from either Marvel or DC, but for some reason, you hold loyalties to either company and use the terms "marvelfag" or "DCasuals" seriously. At least retarded fanboys on /v/ actually play the games from the company they fanboy over.
>>
They need to do a Scarecrow story, they haven't used him in a long time.
>>
>>64256547
If you're reading shitty comics, then maybe you should read them somewhere else. Like CBR or Reddit.

You're the minority here, not me.

"Forever Evil: Best Graphic Novel of 2014"
>>
>>64256711
No, you are because you haven't read Futures End but you assume is it is shit even though people have said it's good. Also, saying shit like "DCfag" more than likely confirms you're from /tv/ and are only here to discuss GoTG, something you didn't know existed before a few months ago.
>>
>>64256751
>8 months later
>still anally devastated about that

holy shit get over it
>>
I wonder how many of you faggots realize the cut off face thing was Tony Daniel's idea.

Not to mention I the ongoing butthurt you suffer is hilarious.

It's not like Two-Face constantly lost and then fixed his face. Oh wait he did.
>>
>>64256784

I gave you a chance, /co/, and you spat in my face and confirmed that you're all plebs
>>
>>64256788
No, cutting off Joker's face was confirmed Synders' idea.
>>64256807
/tv/ please.
>>
>>64256813
>No, cutting off Joker's face was confirmed Synders' idea.
source? it happened in Daniel's book and Snyder didn't do anything with it until a year later
>>
>>64256674

Literally the second arc of the Dark Knight comic, and the Star of Forever Evil Gotham mini.
>>
>>64256839
Snyder said in interviews he gave Daniels a bunch of options and he chose the face one.
>>
>>64256840
In a comic that matters.
>>
>>64256813

Nigger you crazy

http://nothingbutcomics.wordpress.com/2013/10/31/face-off-the-story-behind-the-jokers-face/
>>
>>64256880

The only comic that's mattered for the last twenty years was X-men #1. You'd have to go back in time and arrange an inter-company crossover for that.
>>
>>64256880

Well that's never happening
>>
>>64256813
>No, cutting off Joker's face was confirmed Synders' idea.

No, it wasn't. Snyder's idea what to not use Joker for a year and try toy with new villains. Daniels got to decide the reason for Joker being out.
>>
>>64256934
Why not?
>>
>>64254688
can the Indigo Tribe come and take Joker away? please?
>>
>>64256958

Because the writers who matter Snyder/Gleason don't give a fuck about Scarecrow
>>
>>64256773
I've been around long enough to know that when you DC friends say something is good, that means is "tolerable".

You wouldn't know good if it slammed into you on the freeway.
>>
>>64257021
Oh please fuck off with your fanboyism.
>>
>>64257021

You'll never be patrician, anon. You know that, right?
>>
>>64256674
>>64256840
And Gothtopia. And I think he was in another DK storyline, as well (he was in one written by Finch/Jenkins and one written by that guy who did that Penguin mini, right?)
>>
>>64256308

I doubt he'll be forgotten any time soon. He's still young, and he'll probably be around for quite a while. He's popular this early in his career, he'll probably be at least as well remembered as Dixon, maybe O'Neil if he plays his cards right.

You're nothing but cattle, naive to world outside your pen, yet you demand that everyone live there.

That was a flashback in the Asylum.
>>
>>64254688
I'm gonna go ahead and archive this. That way, if Snyder does kill off the Joker, I can be all "I called it" and do that victory dance people do when they're correct about something on the internet. And if he doesn't, well, I'll just pretend I never started this thread, and do that victory dance people do when they're correct on the internet.
