The Joker was a fictional character from the DC comic book series,Batman. The Joker made his first appearance in the comic book's very fist issue in Spring 1940. Credit for the character's creation is often disputed, with Jerry Robinson, Bill Finger, and Bob Kane all receiving some or all of the credit. Although Kane and Robinson take credit for the design of the character, they acknowledge Finger's writing contribution.
