Legendary comic book writer Grant Morrison has offered his theory on the ending of Alan Moore's 'The Killing Joke': 'Batman kills The Joker. According to comic book writer and author of numerous Batman titles, Grant Morrison, that's exactly what happens at the end of The Killing Joke. The go-to source for comic book and superhero movie fans. The Killing Joke provides an origin story for the supervillain the Joker, loosely adapted from the 1951 story arc "The Man Behind the Red Hood!". It's worth noting that Morrison fully acknowledges the ambiguous nature of The Killing Joke's outcome, which he believes to be part of the book's brilliance.

Batman is one of the most loved DC Comics characters. The Joker tells the ‘Killing Joke’ at the end, Batman reaches out and breaks his neck, and that’s why the laughter stops and the light goes out, ’cause that was the last chance at crossing that bridge.

Check out the script page below (courtesy of The Adventures of Mr. Phil): And perhaps the light going out in the final panel really symbolizes how the boundaries that distinguish Batman from The Joker have disappeared, providing further illustration to The Joker's belief that they're two sides of the same coin. Here are Morrison's words from the 'Fatman on Batman' podcast: That’s why it’s called 'The Killing Joke.' Moreover, the script doesn't indicate anything as far as Batman strangling The Joker goes.

That’s why it’s called The Killing Joke.'. How can Batman possibly justify doing things "by the book," as Gordon implores him to, this time? The fact that the Oracle repeatedly shows up in subsequent Batman features and that The Joker continues to be a thorn in Batman's side solidifies The Killing Joke's events as canon.

In the aftermath of what The Joker has put Batman - not to mention Jim and Barbara Gordon - through over the course of the narrative, one may wonder how The Killing Joke could end any other way. The Joker's origin is presented via flashback, while simultaneously depicting his attempt to drive Jim Gordon insane and Batman's desperate attempt to stop him. On this, he's 100% correct, and now we put it to you, Screen Ranters: what do you think happens at the end of The Killing Joke? A one-stop shop for all things video games.

On the other hand, the art alone appears to debunk that reading just based on where Batman places his hand, which comes to rest on The Joker's shoulder rather than wrap around his throat as Morrison states. Batman: The Killing Joke is a 1988 DC Comics one-shot graphic novel featuring the characters Batman and the Joker written by Alan Moore and illustrated by Brian Bolland. For Batman fans, The Killing Joke needs no introduction; more than twenty years after being published, Alan Moore's graphic novel remains one of the all-time iconic clashes between The Joker and the Dark Knight, and perhaps the definitive tale of the Clown Prince of Crime's tragic origin. In a recent interview with Kevin Smith about his new Wonder Woman project, Morrison spoke about Moore's work and offered his own take on what happens as Batman and The Joker laugh maniacally together in the rain, suggesting that the former actually murders the latter. He had a wife, Jeannie (Anna Vocino), and a child on the way. Take a look at The Killing Joke's final page below: It's difficult to look at that polyptych keeping Morrison's words in mind without seeing exactly what he's talking about. The flashbacks showcase the origin story of the Joker.

Does Batman stick to his code?

Could Moore's one-shot comic really be the final Joker yarn, the one where he succeeds in breaking Batman and pushes the world's greatest detective so far over the edge that he breaks his most sacred rule? All the latest gaming news, game reviews and trailers. But what if readers have been misinterpreting its conclusion since 1988? (Though in fairness, there's a lot that can happen off the page between writer and artist.). In case you haven't heard yet, Grant Morrison recently offered his take on the end of The Killing Joke, the seminal 1988 story from Alan Moore and Brian Bolland.Widely considered one of the greatest Batman stories -- and possibly the greatest Joker story -- of all time, the ending is, arguably, a bit ambiguous. 90 Day Fiancé: Are Juliana Custodio & Michael Jessen Still Together? DC Confirms: Batman Is No Longer A Billionaire.

'Batman: The Killing Joke' ending explained The Plot. And Alan Moore wrote the ultimate Batman/Joker story — he finished it. With the oft-mimicked but unmatched style found in Moore's intricate dialogue and Brian Bolland's vibrant artwork, as well as the story's in-depth exploration of the divisions that separate the arch-nemeses from one another, it's easy to see why The Killing Joke maintains a high level esteem even today. Boston-based critic Andy Crump has been writing about film for the web since 2009, and has been a Screen Rant contributor since Spring 2013. Five years hence, Morrison reintroducing this particular analysis hardly feels unique, but following the discussion with Smith, his words have sparked debate about those nine closing frames across the Internet that Bolland's simply did not. Or does he finally snap and end The Joker's madness once and for all? Did Batman Kill The Joker at the End of 'The Killing Joke'? So that leads to the big question: Is Morrison right? During The Killing Joke's events, The Joker shoots her through the spine, paralyzing her below the waist - and setting the foundation for her transformation into the Oracle. What if The Killing Joke's climactic panels depict Bruce Wayne reaching out and taking the life of his oldest foe, rather than a shared moment of madness between both men?

An interesting theory, though hardly new: as noted by Bleeding Cool, Bolland himself referenced the idea of Batman killing The Joker - which has been discussed among fans since its release - in his afterword for the recolored edition of The Killing Joke in 2008.
