The process of psychological transformation of the villain that draws a parallel with our society.
The Joker, Batman 's antagonistic villain, and his constant manifestation submerged in delirium perfectly reflect the process of psychological transformation suffered by an individual who, little by little, finds in violence the only authentic resource of expression.
There are innate dominant instincts linked to these expressions that are part of our existence and that we must learn to control as we grow up. These are behaviors that are acquired by imitating close members with the same behavior.
The truth is that living in society limits our aggressive expressions, knowing that self-regulation is essential for healthy coexistence and consensus. But how do we learn to deal with the frustration that things aren't always the way we want them to be?
