Black Panther Vs. The Joker



Some distant footage of The Black Panther on the set of Captain America: Civil War has surfaced, and I have to say he looks great.  I am really looking forward to seeing how he fit into the story and watching him in live action.  I have a feeling I am going to be left wanting more though - with so much going on in the film and so many characters, there doesn't seem like there will be a lot of time to focus on T'Challa.  I'll have to be happy with what we get, and look forward to his solo film outing a little further down the road.

The only script-plausible reason T'challa might have a run-in with the Joker is if Gotham City was negotiating to purchase Wakandan vibranium as an earthquake-proof building material.

It's the Joker, since when does HE need a "plausible" reason for anything?

Since he was used as a pawn by Ares in "Injustice: Gods Among Us." That's when. If there's one thing the Joker is NOT crazy about, it's playing second fiddle to anybody.

I'm sure The Black Panther appearance in Civil War is a tease for his own feature.

The Joker is a force of nature. A madcap, crazy force of nature. The Joker can be part of any story. He's the secret ingredient...

I honestly didn't knoew Kirby actuallt dew the Joker, but what a pleasent surprise for me.
True the Joker never really needs a reason for anything, since he as has been pointed out a freaking force of nature.
Still if I may, perhaps he's trying become a international ambassador again like he did in "Death In The Family", as a way to stick to Batman again, while making plenty of illegal profit. True, he usually doesn't go for ding the same trick twice, but there's always that...or he he hears of the rare vibranium and decides to steal some for the latest Jokermobile or pr just because he'll try and sell it on the black market. Either way, this would be an interesting test for T'Challa. Does he kill the Joker where Batman refused, or does he simply turn him over to the CIA?

Dale Bagwell- Kirby drew the Joker for the first Super Powers mini-series back in the early 1980's. I am not sure if it was the last thing he drew for DC or not.
