Has anyone ELSE no one else noticed how they look so smiliar? Hair, makeup, the scars for Joker even look like The Crow villains!

Sort of, although the Crow might have been inspired by an older Joker design.

Nope, he was inspired by the old harlequin masks.

It is like Beetlejuice and The Crow had a baby

Yes, I did notice similarities. Even if they are linked, I would call it homage before I called it a rip off.

I wouldn't call it a homage or a rip off....if you look for similarities in something then you're going to find them

Nope. The Crow is not at all inspired by Joker. The guy who made the Crow was inspired by 3 of his favorite musicians (Iggy Pop, Peter Murphy, Ian Curtis), some Gothic imagery from a poem, & old 'The Cure' lyrics ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Crow citations are all there). Not to sound rude I'm a little sick of how people try to act like Joker inspired everything. It makes sense Heath's Joker would be compared to the Crow though as that Joker has a grunge-rock look.... with the uncharacteristic long hair & all.

I don't know, I think modern Joker has much more in common with classic Joker than with the Crow. That's pretty close to how comic Joker would look as a human.

@TheManOfSteel456: Everything I've seen you post on here has been ridiculous and wrong.

Funny thing: when The Crow came out, everyone said Crow stole his makeup from the wrestler, Sting.
 
Sting was cool with it.
