In the the second edition of Shrink Wrapped: The Psychology of Super Heroes, Mental Health “Professionals” Timothy Capel, Jennifer Smith and Shawn Kidd gather in a dark, smelly room at Arkham Asylum to study the case file known as “The Killing Joke.” The team have been put on retainer by one Amanda Waller to assess if the maniac known as the Joker could qualify as a participant in the burgeoning Suicide Squad program. Join them as they discuss his inflated ego, a heartbreaking and possibly fake origin story, his connection to Batman, brutal acts of crime and indecency against Jim and Barbara Gordon and much more!
