Why Heath Ledger's Joker is the best

There has never been a better actor to play the role as the Joker than Heath Ledger in the film "the Dark Knight." He played the role so well that the Joker became the main star of the show than the Batman himself.

Heath Ledger's Joker character is very manipulative, clever, philosophical, a bit mysterious, and so forth. The one thing that makes him truly stand out in Batman films aside from his mannerisms is the fact that human life is all a big joke to him. Like a child, he causes so much chaos and destruction in society as if it were a game because he's come to realization that justice let alone life itself is meaningless.

Heath Ledger's Joker was a genius. He was psychologically destructive as he was physically. He was very unpredictable as a supervillain and was one step ahead of everyone else. His plans were diabolical especially when he crippled Harvey Dent to a breaking point. He was comical and sadistically hilarious. Most of all, he's nearly invincible and even when he is defeated - he behaves as if he's pulling Batman's strings.  

There will never be another Joker who is as iconic in live action Batman films other than Heath Ledger's simply because Heath Ledger immersed himself so deeply into the character.
