Mark Hamill's Joker is a tough act to follow, and many expressed their doubts when video game voice actings' current hotness, Troy Baker got the job. But in a packed room of Batman fans during NYCC's Arkham Origins panel, Baker won over just about everyone with an impromptu monologue.

The scene, one of his favorite moments from the comics, is a speech featured in 1988's The Killing Joke by Alan Moore. It's a well known Joker moment, and when Baker mentioned it, fans at the show insisted he recreate it. Without skipping a beat -- well, he did have to look up the monologue on his phone -- Baker switched to his Joker voice and nailed it. Here's the clip:
