Who Is The Flashpoint Joker? (SPOILERS)

In the first issue of Flashpoint, we discovered that the Batman of this new world was Thomas Wayne, who lost his young son Bruce Wayne at the hands of a mugger, and who became an older Batman as a result.

Well in the new issue of Flashpoint: Batman: Knight Of Vengeance, which is rapidly outstripping every other tie in book, Flashpoint and Fear Itself alike as the one to watch, we discover the other side of the coin and who exactly is the Joker in this world.

And it’s very much the other side of the coin. The psychopathic murderer who taks pleasure in inflicting physical and mental pain alike, is none other than…

…Martha Wayne. Thomas Wayne’s wife. Who seems to have gone through her very own particular hell as a result of the death of her son.

This does have a rather Killing Joke feel to it all. Kidnapped children, serious injury and death. And as ever, Gordon is stuck right in the middle of it all. Some things never change, even if the details do.

Poor Selina as well…
