    Worst. Idea. Ever. Takes away a lot of the Joker's mystique, IMPO.

    Especially if his name is Ping.

    Maybe it's a misdirection with a fake name.

    Hey, it's the new DC. There is nothing anywhere in the universe that can't be better with an Explanation or an Origin Story.

    I'm happy to treat most of what they're doing now the same way I treat the Christopher Nolan/Zack Snyder movies, which is the same way I treat the Halle Berry Catwoman movie: as an interesting thought experiment on what happens if you take a character's name and try to come up with something entirely different based on that.

    But then again it could be an exclusive name to this canon, but non canonical in the overall DC story.

    It might not be so bad depending on what his name and history is. I'm kinda hoping they'll go with Jack Napier.
