The Joker

Do I need to say anything? The Joker has been portrayed memorably many times on screen as well as in comics. When i think Joker though, I probably think the Arkham Games. But wherever he pops up, he’s pretty much the same.

Joker shouldn’t really be used in combat, there should really be plots and traps, henchmen and lackeys, mercenaries and assassins. If the heroes are fighting Joker in a fair fight, something went wrong.
Possible swaps for distinctions could be: Brilliant and devious, Unpredictable, Pushing the Bat’s buttons…
