Keep the tights and bikini bottoms - the Joker is who we really want to play in Infinite Crisis.
Developed by Turbine, Infinite Crisis sees the worlds of DC's Multiverse come crashing together, pitting twisted incarnations of some of your favorite heroes and villains, like Batman, Green Lantern, Catwoman and The Flash, against each other in head-to-head multiplayer combat. With characters like Nightmare Batman and Gaslight Catwoman, it's DC Comics superheroes like you've never seen them before!
It doesn't matter where he is, the Joker is practically guaranteed to steal the show anytime he shows up on screen. And it's safe to say now that his presence in Infinite Crisis will be no different. Developer Turbine released the Joker's champion profile yesterday, and I'm already in love. The Joker is a squishy ranged character with a strong focus on attack damage, but it seems he was designed to do one thing and one thing alone: kiting.
Kiting, for anyone unfamiliar, is keeping someone at range while retreating and doing damage simultaneously. Really, it's the most apropos role imaginable for the devious Joker.
The Joker's moves include a blink that leaves behind an exploding punching bag, an exploding present that leaves chattering teeth, and a rocket-powered fist referred to lovingly as "Mr. Punch." And of course, his ultimate is a cloud of poison gas.
From what we've seen so far, and what everyone already knows about the Joker, it looks like he'll be a real thorn in the side of any hero who opposes him. I for one just can't wait to hear that maniacal laugh after I kill someone.
