So yesterday we were all treated -- I use that word lightly -- to the first full glimpse of super amazing actor Jared Leto as the most iconic and bat guano crazy villain in comic book history: the Joker.

To say public reaction was a mixed bag is a bit of an understatement.

Personally, I was a bit disappointed. This design for the Clown Prince of Crime looks like a mad scientist took Lil Wayne and Miley Cyrus and spliced them together to form a nightmarish version of everything i despise about pop culture.

And then there's the tattoos. Those tattoos, man. Yikes.

Now, despite not liking the look, I'm still positive Leto is going to put on a killer performance, but I'm not digging the look.

And apparently, neither are these folks, who took to Twitter and pretty much gave the best reactions to the Joker reveal I've come across online.

Check these out!

What they said.

Again, I'm absolutely positive Leto is going to do a fantastic job with the character, and the final look of the Joker might actually be a hundred times better than this, so I'm still holding out hope that Suicide Squad is going to be awesome.

However, this certainly doesn't do much to build my confidence.

What do you guys think of the Joker's new look? Love it or hate it? Let me know down below!
