Joker – Damaged Goods

Gotham City’s Clown Prince of Crime rejoices in chaos and tormenting his favorite foe, Batman, who never seems to get the joke!

Nothing is assured when it comes to the capricious Joker. Murderous maniac one moment, clownish trickster the next, his origins are as convoluted as his lethal criminal schemes. Was he the Red Hood — a criminal dosed by toxic chemicals that gave him white skin? Or was he an innocent man duped and unhinged by tragedy? Or something else entirely? Don’t try understanding the Joker’s twisted mind – he’ll make you the punchline!

Legendary Order

1-4-3/2-5

It’s unlikely Joker will be your Team Leader; other characters bring more beneficial powers to the table as leader. Adding bleeds and purges to his kit helps round him out and bring more use to him.

Synergies

Joker is all about random, high burst damage and critical attacks — making him pair nicely with his love, Harley Quinn – Quite Vexing. His bleeds also make him a nice contender for a bleed team.

Harley Quinn – Quite Vexing, Dr Poison, Cheetah, Chemo

Countered By

Because of the highly variable nature of Joker’s kit and his Support gear set, he can be pretty easily countered by Energy characters. Ones like Supergirl can cushion any critical blows he and his allies may land, while Jessica Cruz can deal some nice damage while also shielding allies from attacks.

Jessica Cruz, Supergirl, Batman Beyond, Green Lantern Hal Jordan

Notes

Joker – Damaged Goods is a rare character to obtain, but that doesn’t mean he’s anything special. His highly random kit paired with his relative rarity has made him unused for the most part.
