#9: Arkham Origins

The Arkham Origins Joker is a very strange one indeed -- and doesn't quite fit with any of the others. His specialty is clearly Poison, and all of his traits and special powers are themed around it. It's a nice concept, and it works for the most part, but there are some issues with it.

First let's look at some standard powers -- the defense is nice. With Combat Reflexes he has an effective 19 defense in close combat, which is very formidable. The 140 point-cost is awfully high, but he's a Wild Card with Mastermind, so he's a kind of a tentpole character if you can build the right team.

(Continued below...)


Arkham Origins Joker Dial

While he's ranked in the top 10 in this list, the designers were clearly asleep at the helm at this one -- the writing is all over the place and wording of The Joker's special powers is inconsistent with other HeroClix figures. It's as if they hired a 16 year old newbie to write it. Still, the concept is and "poison theme" is very interesting... but for such a recent figure Wizkids needs to step up it's editing process.

Come on man, the batman GF Joker is the best one by far and he didn't make the list at all!?!?!?

Glad to see Joker thug in there. i love both his dials, and they are hands down the best of the clown henchmen we've received so far

No Joker Batman set and no Joker DKR 28...
Cmon bro!

i disagree on something. you didn't put in the lot Veteran Joker from Ions, way better than the Exp one in position n.8 considering the Jokers here, i would have submitted the Veteran version of joker in position n. 1 or 2

I'd agree with most of this list. Legacy experienced is still my favourite Joker ever as the unpredictability is so perfect. I'd definitely get Clown Prince in that list probably getting rid of the number 6 Heath Leger joker. It's an ok piece but any sculpt with a machine gun and 0 range goes in my never-use pile!

The straight-Jacket Joker from Arkham Asylum used to be my favourite at the 100 point mark until I got hold of the Arkham Origins Quick-Start Joker. Click for click he just does more and is worth the purchase of the set alone (which is fortunate given that the Batman sucks like a vacuum cleaner in a talcum powder factory!).

@Predator: Oh yea, how could I forget about Onslaught? I didn't partake in the other sets so much so its not a surprise that I missed them Good catch Predator.

I love that the Joker thug made the list as I've used him with a couple jokers.

@Lord Logan- Your reference to characters with 3 TAs is a little off as a quick few i can name with 3 or more are

-Superman & Superman
-Justice League Teambase
-LE Mon-El
-Onslaught(Has 4)

@Lord Logan: The PD TA doesn't need other figures with the same TA to use. As for the Batman Enemy and Underworld TAs, this makes the Sgt a little more versatile for team building -- and he becomes an excellent addition to any "wildcard" team for just 78 points!

@batfun: I agree, that was probably my favorite brick figure of them all. Either that or Super Skrull: Illuminati. I got so much use from him.

Posted by: Lord Logan on 8/29/2014 10:23:38 AM
I think that Joker as Sgt. is impressive to have 3 team abilities as there has never been a figure before or after (yet) to do this. He'd probably work best in a Police theme team for your going to need heavy hitters to make up for his constant 2 damage. These heavier hitters may most likely lack in attack thus boosting the damage. Utilization of Police TA makes this not a problem.

Come to think of it, utilization of all his team abilities is nearly impossible in a game since they all require characters with those team abilities. Thats a throw away to a theme team already.

where is the clown prince of crime LE from Arkham Asylum. he might not will that much for me when i played him but he is so random each time u use him and to me that joker
