has jokers name ever been said
Yes. A few times, but ever since the newer movies they claimed that the name he used to use was an alias. His name was Joseph Kerr. Joe Kerr. They said in it the Knigthfall story arc when Joker was escaping from Arkham. And a few times before that. In a flash back issue where it shows what happened to the Joker's wife after he fell into the chemicals in the Red Hood costume (the chemicals that made him Joker) she calls him Joe. Then they started claiming that Jack Napier was his name. Then they claimed that they were all just aliases.
Since Napier is a for-real last name & it's a pun on jackanape, it would be as clever a name as Harley's, but he has no canon "every man" name, but damn if he doesn't have more nicknames than anyone. In Lovers & Madmen, they stuck with Jack, but gave him no last name.
I guess if he somehow managed to destroy all records of his past (like he conviniently has no living friends, relatives, or acquaintances who can identify him), then there wouldn't be any harm in giving him that name for good.
Ummm, when has Alan Moore ever said that? The Killing Joke, which was written in 1988, excisted before Tim Burton's Batman, where the Joker first received the name Jack Napier. As a matter of fact, the name Jack Napier is created through the use of the surname of actor Alan Napier, who had played Alfred in the 1960s series, and the first name of Jack Nicholson.
" Alan Moore says Jack Napier and that's his name "
I know his real name. It all makes sense now. Joker hasn't been around for 75 years only roughly 74. in fact he only appeared in Batman Issue 1 not Detective Comics 27 yet they are still saying that he's been around for as long as the Dark Knight himself. So it's obvious who he really is. Let's go back to the Bat's first villain. Alfred Stryker. The man fell into a chemical, acidic tub and knowing Batman's no killing policy means he had to of survived. Know anyone else who fell into a chemical tub? The Red Hood leader who is thought of being the Joker. So would it make sense that Alfred Stryker is the Joker's real name?
