Riddle me this:

My prefix, discovered ahead.
My suffix had started instead.
My infix may point with a role.
I am cloaked by a joint super soul.

For example, a vampire flies one.
He is bold, despite a lonely son.
From a cave, he will free but requite.
He is brave, wearing me like a knight.

It is told that a joke proves to kill,
Unless saved by a stroke of good will;
Though compare me to that of a mask,
And to wear me will combat the task.

What am I?

What is the answer to the Riley Riddle?
Who is he?
What is the task?


This will be my final Riley Riddle now because I want to get back at "normal" riddles. Yes, I say this a lot, but (I think) I mean it this time. The Riley rises.

The riley riddle is

Robin

My prefix, discovered ahead.

Most languages were developed in the past, Ro is an artificial international language that discards all previous words/roots and focused on ideas.

My suffix had started instead.

In is the start of instead.

My infix may point with a role.

Obi as in Obi-wan Kenobi, he appears through the Force, trying to guide Luke

I am cloaked by a joint super soul.

He is apprenticed under Batman, so he's taken under Batman's wing. He is the one who outfits him. Batman is a super hero, part of the justice league -- a join effort.

Who is he?

Batman

For example, a vampire flies one.

A vampire is a Bat-Man

From a cave, he will free but requite.

Batman's hideout is in a cave in spite of his fear of bats

He is brave, wearing me like a knight.

Batman is Bruce Wayne's armor, and he protects the innocent even though he has no super powers

What is the task?

Catching the joker

It is told that a joke proves to kill,

Joker is a criminal

Unless saved by a stroke of good will;

Normal police can't stop him, so Batman has to step in and save whomever he targets.

Though compare me to that of a mask,

A joker, a persona you can put on

And to wear me will combat the task.

Laughter staves off fear, so put on a joker persona and you'll be able to get through bad times/the issue at hand.

    $\begingroup$ If I recall the answer correctly, yours is not it, I sadly inform. But oh, your answer can surely suffice, can it not? $(+1)$ ;) Edit: I might give you a tick, either from now to a couple of days, unless I can fully remember what the answer was... huh, would you look at that? I am riddled by my own riddle. $\endgroup$ – Feeds Mar 29 at 12:49
