The Joker Vs. Iron Man



Brian Bolland can illustrate just about anything, but if there was a single character that he was born to draw, it's The Joker.  I had many issues with the story in  The Killing Joke, but the artwork in it is stunning - even more so when you see the re-colored pages in the new edition that was recently released.  If you are a fan of his work, I highly reccomend The Art of Brian Bolland and Cover Story: The DC Comics Art of Brian Bolland, two great books which contain tons of great art and insights from the artist.

I actually seriously doubt Iron Man could take down the Joker. You'd need the evil genius of Magneto (being good) to match Jokers' insanity. The Joker is..uh...no joke.

I like this clash - on one hand a man representing rationalism and science, but with a lot of personal issues an inner demons and on the other a personalized chaos and madness who is a lot smarter and more cunning that he gives an impression to be. Order vs Chaos.

Damn, I came here to pitch you the idea of Animal Man vs Kraven the Hunter, but it really pales in comparision.

I liked this one-- a nice change from pairing similar characters from different companies.
