Which live-action Joker is the best? The answer is extremely subjective as each generation tends to have the Joker that most resonates with them. Gen Xers seem to prefer Caesar Romero’s Clown Prince of Crime, while old school Batfans treasure Jack Nicholson. Not too long ago, a new generation of Batfans were introduced to Heath Ledger’s iconic portrayal of the Joker in the Dark Knight. Since then, even with the debut of Jared Leto’s Joker, Ledger continues to reign supreme on the Internet. We may never know the true answer, but let’s at least find out who will win in physical combat.
In the same vein of Bat in the Sun’s Super Power Beat Down, Minute Match-Ups is yet another YouTube series that engages two iconic pop culture characters in fisticuffs. The boys of Ismahawk (Danny Shepherd and Jeremy Le) have managed five 2-8 minute well-choreographed action-packed shorts thus far. And their newest one pits the Joker from the Dark Knight against the Joker from Suicide Squad. Who will win?

Although I think the ending fell kinda flat, it was very well executed and their impressions are pretty convincing. What do you think? Do you agree with the outcome? Let me know.
