The Joker's True Name to Be Revealed In Justice League #50

Joker Reveal

When Batman sat atop Metron's Mobius Chair in Justice League #42 and asked it the true name of The Joker, his reaction was enough to tell fans that the story, if they decided to tell it, would be big.

Today, at WonderCon, Justice League writer Geoff Johns and artist Jason Fabok revealed that Justice League #50, due out next month, will tell that story.

You can see a piece of teaser art above, featuring art from a number of different Joker artists over the years -- which Johns jokingly begged co-publishers Jim Lee and Dan DiDio not to share.

In the fairly recent past, and as part of this same story, Johns has revealed the true nature of both Darkseid and the Anti-Monitor.

    I love the idea of Batman knowing who The Joker really is, but we don't need that information. As much as I admire Geoff Johns' writing, nothing he comes up with will be good enough. I'd love to be proven wrong though! Go gadget go!

  1. Bad idea. It should always be a mystery. Or have batman reveal his identify then try and verify it and have it come back as false.

    Wolverine became much less interesting when we knew his origin. Joker will be the same.

  2. This couldnt be a cheap ploy to sell comics at ALL could it...
