After much brainstorming for the first major supervillain in my upcoming superhero book, I have decided on what he will be like. He will essentially be Karl Ruprect Kroenen, the Joker, and Dr. Frankenstein all rolled into one. Like the Joker, my character will be a nihilistic and psychopathic anarchist. Like Karl Ruprect Kroenen, my character will be a deadly fighter when the situation requires and will have done extensive and horrific modifications to his own body. Like Dr. Frankenstein, my character will be a chaotic scientist who does not care about morals or ethics as long as his thirst for knowledge is appeased in the end. Overall, my character is going to be a serious and nasty piece of work!
I had a frightening idea about the first major supervillain in my new superhero book. This guy is going to be VERY messed up both physically and mentally. He will suffer from body dysmorphic disorder, which gives him an uncontrollable urge to physically mutilate and modify himself. He also is both a sadist and a masochist, meaning that he LOVES inflicting pain and receiving pain. He also has narcissistic personality disorder, thinking anything he makes or mutilates are his masterpieces. Finally, he will be a nihilistic anarchist who wants to watch the world burn. All of this is combined with a genius level intellect allows him to use his intellect in unpredictable ways. To make him even creepier, I will be giving him a mad scientist-like accent such as Eastern European like Doctor Frankenstein. I guess you could say I am attempting to create a supervillain who is just as insane as the Joker, which is a mighty challenge because the Joker is as crazy as they come. This guy is going to be one of the darkest and most messed up supervillains I have ever made.
It looks like we will finally see Jeremiah Valeska complete his transformation into the Joker in the Gotham Series Finale. I have noticed a few things about this version of the Joker. After he fell in the vat of chemicals, he supposedly became brain dead. However, ten years later, he wakes up when Bruce Wayne returns to Gotham City. We know that Jeremiah developed a twisted obsession with Bruce Wayne and only woke up when Bruce returned. It could be that the vat of chemicals were only part of the reason Jeremiah was catatonic until now. It could be he lost all sense of fun and purpose when Bruce left Gotham, but when Bruce came back he saw a golden opportunity to have another play date with his favorite victim. However, he clearly runs into someone who is far more fun than Bruce Wayne ever was: BATMAN!!! Thus the feud between superhero and supervillain begins!
This reminds of me of what happened to the Joker in The Dark Knight Returns. After Batman was forced into retirement for ten years, the Joker became catatonic and lost all sense of fun and purpose. But when Batman returned, the Joker was back to his old homicidal self. I think this is the approach the showrunners are going with Jeremiah’s character arc as the Joker. I can’t wait to find out if I am right.
I had a new book idea that involves creating an encyclopedia of every superhuman power in the superhero genre. I have acquired a great deal of knowledge about superhumans and their powers that I feel like sharing my knowledge with the rest of the world. I thought the best way would be to compile an encyclopedia of superpowers. Let me know what you think and I will let you know when I make it.
I have always been a fan of powerful heroes battling powerful villains with epic music playing in the background. The powers that these two combatants wield would be so great that they could demolish entire cities as they clashed with one another. It is like watching two gods fighting amongst the heavens . . . a thing of utter combative beauty! I have seen these kinds of battles countless times in anime, films, and superhero comics. In the final battle of my new superhero series, I will be depicting one such duel to the death where the main character fights the main villain in a titanic struggle that would level multiple cities. I am getting goosebumps just imagining it!
I watched the first episode and trailers of the fifth season of Gotham and I look forward to seeing Jeremiah complete his transformation into the Joker. Based on what I have seen, it looks like Jeremiah will become even crazier than he was last season such as laughing more often and displaying more theatrics. On a map of Gotham City’s current state, it was revealed that every supervillain has carved out their own chunk of territory and are defending them to the death. However, when Harley Quinn snuck into the room, she drew a smily face with a mouth that said “HA HA HA”. This implies that Jeremiah is the true ruler of Gotham City’s criminal underworld and is seemingly ruling from the shadows. Later in the season, we will see Jeremiah fight Bruce Wayne within the Ace Chemical building, right above some vats of chemicals. This is obviously a reference to the Joker’s origin story in the Tim Burton Batman film. In that film, the man who would become the Joker fell into a vat of chemicals, which resulted in him becoming the Joker. With this in mind, it is obvious that Bruce is going to knock Jeremiah into one of those vats of chemicals, which will result in his completed transformation into the Joker. I hope this is what will happen because it was such a letdown when Jerome died.
Imagine being able to fire a concentrated beam of energy from your mouth. You could cause large scale death and destruction with a single breath. This would be like Cyclops’s power except the beam comes from the mouth instead of the eyes. I am thinking of giving one of the supervillains in my new superhero series this ability and it will be frightening.
