Just announced at WonderCon, it’s revealed DC Comics will reveal Joker’s real name.
Fans will recall back in Justice League #42 when Batman sat on the Mobius Chair that he asked it two questions: Who killed his parents (answer: Joe Chill), and what is the Joker’s real name?
Batman responded, “That’s not possible.”
Well, DC never revealed the answer, but now they will.
At the big Rebirth panel at WonderCon, both Geoff Johns and artist Jason Fabok announced they are revealing what the Mobius Chair said and unleashed the following teaser art:
Heading to Wondercon with Megan Fox and the gang this afternoon. Signing posters and answering questions and doing pushups. TMNT Movie is getting closer by the day!!

Ahead of this weekend’s big DC Comics Rebirth announcement at WonderCon, it’s learned Jonathan Hickman has come over to the direct competition.
Hickman tweeted out the “answer is yes” to DC editors and teased he would love to destroy another superhero universe.
Jonathan Hickman penned the 2013 Infinity event series for Marvel and recently Secret Wars.
Hickman’s Marvel contract has been up, and no new Marvel titles from the writer have been announced.
DC editors, you can stop emailing me. The answer is, yes.
I’ve destroyed one superhero universe, don’t think I wouldn’t love to do another.

Only the combined power of the Green Lantern Corps and the Federation stand any chance of stopping those who worship evil’s might.”

An entire universe of Green Lanterns and other supporting characters have grown out from his original adventures in the 1940’s, and this series really showcases the intergalactic scope of the franchise,” said Bob Harras, Editor-in-Chief of DC Comics.
