Laughing in Fear: Twelve Moments That Defined the Joker

All the world loves a clown, so let’s all show Joker some affection for his 80th anniversary.

They say big things come in small packages. So does trouble. Take the case of the diminutive psionic super-villain Doctor Psycho.

Wonder Woman’s longtime enemy Edgar Cizko began his criminal career as a man wrongfully imprisoned due to a frame-up by a romantic rival named Ben Bradley.
