Jester src

The Jester was a member of the Justice League, who fought the Crime Syndicate.

Jester and Lex Luthor broke into a building controlled by the Crime Syndicate. He helped Luthor steal the quantum trigger, a device that allows people to travel into different universes.

An alarm set off in the building sent two villains in pursuit of Luthor and the Jester. The Jester stayed behind, sacrificing himself so that Luthor could escape (and against Luthor's objections). The Jester was attacked moments later by Angelique, and J'edd J'arkus. She plunged a fiery sword into the Jester's chest, making an apparently fatal wound.

The Jester then took a spherical bomb out of his pocket, and set it off, exploding the whole floor and taking Angelique and J'edd J'arkus with him. From the street below, Luthor said he was going to honor his death and finish what he had started.


Other Characteristics

  • The Jester is based on the Jokester, another heroic version of the Joker.
  • He had a headquarters that resembled a giant funhouse and a pet monkey named Harley.
