Joker (DC)

From 4chan Tournaments Wiki

The Joker is a supervillain who appears in comic books published by DC. A member of Batman's Rogues Gallery, Joker's defining traits are an insane personality, green hair and clown makeup, and the use of various stage magic items as deadly weapons. He is widely regarded as one of the greatest and most enduring supervillains of all time. Joker has appeared in many more animated adaptations involving Batman, and has also gained prominence on recent various /tv/ adaptations such as Heath Ledger's acclaimed potrayal in the 2008 film The Dark Knight, Jared Leto in Suicide Squad (2016), and Joaquin Phoenix in the titular 2019 film.

In the Mr. /co/lympus Tournaments, Joker is notable for being, apropiately enough, an absolute wildcard of a competitor, going from not qualifying at all to having the potential to reach the Elite Eight if given the chance.

Tournament history[edit]

Joker would be first nominated to participate in the inaugural Mr. /co/lympus 2018. However, despite having collected enough responses to appear in the qualyfier poll, the host of the tournament failed to include him, effectively cucking Joker out of any chance of making the bracket.

The Clown Prince of Crime would quickly develop a fearsome reputation in the following Mr. /co/lympus Tournaments. In his first foray in 2019, he earned the epithet "Duck Killer" after he single-handedly spoiled a much-anticipated Duck Battle match-up by defeating Donald and Daffy in consecutive rounds, and then almost won against Skeletor in the round of 16 by just 1 vote (actually 2 votes, because the higher seed wins when tied). However, some anons claimed that Joker's run was influenced by /tv/ brigades due to the recent release of the Joker film in the United States.

Joker got a poor seed (#95) in 2020 but managed to advance into the third round by narrowly defeating both the one-eyed Mike Wazowski (despite his status as a meme character at the time ) and rising cult favourite Dan (Despite him being fearless of the IRS, who even the Joker is terrified of), before losing badly to grumpy elder Eustace Bagge.

After not qualifying in 2021, Joker returned in Mr. /co/lympus 2022. Despite his best efforts, he lost handedly to Dr. Doofenshmirtz in the first round of the tournament. Despite this, he did have somewhat of a presence early on due to roleplayers taking on the persona of the character up until his elimination. He reappeared again in 2023, but had an unceremonious loss to Space Ghost.
