The Joker and the Batman...

Riddle me this...
Who laughs in the face of danger, wears a comic grin, combs his hair so green, and is happier than sin?
Who dons a cape and cowl, crouches in the night, battles crime in Gotham, and on black wings takes flight?

Okay, let's cut through the camp. There have been many different variations in comics and adaptations of the Batman and Joker characters in different media. Earlier I asked the question as to which version of Batman was people's favorite, but now I want to expand upon that simple question and ask people to discuss what versions in what mediums functions best as a duo... after all, where would ol' Batsy be without his laughable (affable) friend (fiend) the Joker?

To get people thinking, here's a link to a recent slideshow on Yahoo in which some different pairings of Batman and the Joker are commented upon.

well, that is easy. Heath Ledger and Christian Bale on film, "Death in the Famiy" in comics, Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill in the animated series...nope I am not including Adam West and that guy....

LOL! No Adam West and Cesar Romano for you? But they were so faithful... to the crappy Batman stories of the '50s!

I think that Christian Bale is the best film Batman and Jack Nicholson is the best film Joker but, they weren't paired together. So, I'll go with Woo and say Bale and Ledger. I don't know enough about the cartoons to really choose there but, I'd go with Mark Hamill and Kevin conroy, since they were the pair from the cartoon that I actually have seen.

Now that Mark Hamill is leaving the Joker behind him (for now at least), I wonder who they will choose to play him opposite Kevin Conroy in the upcoming animated adaptation of Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns.
