I like Jack's better! Though its been a while since I saw Batman, I do prefer my Joker more clowny and cartoony than was portrayed in Dark Knight.
And people also forget how homicidal Nicholson's Joker was. He did kill the entire restaurant that Vicki Vale is at, many of the mob heads and tries to kill all the people at the parade, and just does that for the heck of it.

I liked Jack, but before Dark Knight Mark Hamill was always my favorite Joker. I agree the actor in Batman: Dead End was good.
Yeah, they are different types of Joker, but really I love Heath better than Jack. Again for me though, it's deciding between Hamill & Ledger. He may of only been a voice, but it was a great voice. I loved Hamill more as The Joker than I did him as Luke Skywalker. His laugh was just, magic.
No. Don't be fooled by the average fanboys on this forum, I know actors with potential when I see them. Jack blew him out of the water, but it was also how Nolan handled the character that made me made (I posted a lot more about this in the Burton vs. Nolan thread). Plus that makeup for Heath looked absolutely terrible. Just because he died, that doesn't automatically make him the best Batman villiam eva. Jack had more character. Heath had to get in character, but Jack was there from the start. His laughs didn't seem to be forced, and it looked natural. Now this could be a double-sided sword, but Burton had the balls to give him a back story. Althogh this may go against his backstory somewhat, it just made the whole experience less-confusing. Saying something isn't like the comic means virtually nothing, and I'm just glad Jack added his flare to the Joker.

I believe Jacks was a little cartoonish, he didn't real threatening too me ever, I couldn't wait for Batman too kick his arse, by the time I watch TDK I'm a big Joker nut from reading the comics and I felt like I was rewarded I guess, the insane killer with no remorse, the psychopathic clown I so feared after reading The Killing Joke, I was watching him on screen and was amazed, a little different in appearence maybe...but it's The Joker I was waiting for nonetheless.
However, even though Jacks Joker was cartoonish too me, it was still a great performance IMO, he didn't scare me though, I laughed at him mostly, but Heaths Joker, gave me goosebumps fear humour adrenaline influence inspiration...just everything.
Jack added his flare to the Joker? It's possible you're higher than me right now. Jack added a lot of Jack to the Joker.
Yeah, anything else you'd like to add? I made him more relatable. His Joker wasn't all "Jack, though." He was also cruel and sadistic, but the best part was, he took it all with a twisted sense of humor.
