For some reason today we celebrate the awesomeness of the Dark Knight. I’m not sure why, but I’m not complaining. So put on your Batman shirts and your Detective Comics underoos and read a comic, watch a TV show or movie or do the Batusi, anything to show your love for DC’s iconic character.
There are a lot of versions of the Joker origin story. The film The Dark Knight even offers a couple. But we think the internet has FINALLY solved the mystery!

On Tuesday, we talked about actors who gave a strong performance in a stinker of a superhero flick.

It’s Oscar season, and we are looking for a Gabbing Geek way to cover Hollywood’s biggest night, so today we take a look at the best and worst performances by an Oscar Winning performer while playing a character in a comic book superhero film. Some of them were future winners when they donned the tights, others already had the Oscars on the shelf.
We are leaving out movies like Teen Age Mutant Ninja Turtles and other non-superhero comic films, so you gotta be a superhero property to be eligible here! So who is the best and who is the worst (and a bonus for comic completionists, the full list of every Oscar winning performer to play in the genre!)? Let’s read on, shall we?
I better get the mop because Watson’s head is about to explode.
