Arkham Asylum in Gotham City has always been a prohibition. It was intended to keep the mind ill and to treat it. But Arkham wasn’t always the sinister fans of the psychiatric facility. Arkham was relatively lovely in Batman’s earlier days. Or not that dark and violent at least
However, as The Joker #5 indicates, when the Joker arrived it all changed. Detainees who were previously non-violent were upset throughout the day, safety was enhanced and yet, because of one individual, Asylum was even worse. The Joker spoils anything he touches. He basically has the similar effect on Arkham as Harley Quinn — a progressive decrease in crazy.
Everything began, following the first time the Joker was apprehended. Jim Gordon followed him well after his first appearance and was afraid that the Joker would be committed to Arkham Asylum. Jim visited Jeremiah Arkham’s facility to talk about the amount of security that the joker would utilize, as he knew the security of the facility was too lax to effectively confine somebody such as him.
He begged for the Joker to be housed in the safe wing of Arkham, financed by a man named Sampson Sawyer. Sampson paid the safe wing to keep his brother alone under the best care. Jim did not make too much stock of this, because Mr. Sampson’s brother had not been able to hurt anybody in the medicine. Gordon called Mr. Sampson to transfer the Joker to the safe wing. Jim was compelled to depart when his request was refused.
This, however, wasn’t the end. As he entered his car, Arkham’s citizens started to do things, which never before happened. Jim immediately realized the cause and discovered the Joker eating cake calmly. He decided all night to look at the Joker in the cell if it took him. But the Joker was able to escape a slight lapse in his vigil. He just wanted to finish his pie, fortunately. However, the escape was still sufficient to hold Jim all night before his cell.
Mr. Sampson decided in the morning to fund his brother’s secure wing and the Joker will be transferred to a more secure new room. As a result, Arkham began to turn it as an opening door for some of Gotham’s most violent patients from its conventional mental health hospital. Everything because they sought to prepare for what really was the Joker. Unfortunately, though, the more they were trying to make up for his misdeeds, the worse was Asylum.
It’s nasty to think that Joker’s mere presence in an area was that influential. It is certainly meaningful that as the years went by and his eschappings from Arkham meant ever more catastrophic clashes with Batman would raise the necessity for security. However, it wouldn’t be sufficient. Joker’s escaping, killing people, then just coming back to escape and kill again.
This is a bad joke. It is a bad joke. His place is only a pit break and sometimes a complimentary lunch if he remains around long enough to eat his pie. However, while spending only a short span of time there, it turns into something that it should never have been. It is as though Arkham was Harley’s forerunner, which he steadily shaped to reflect his depravity.
