From Underworld Unleashed #1

Neron has gathered together just about every villain in the DCU, A-listers, B-listers right down to ZZ-listers, in a sort of demonic powerup sales pitch. The issue is told from the POV of James Jesse, the original Trickster, who has his doubts about Neron's real plan, and who makes for an interesting "voice".

To make a good first impression on the assembled throng he introduces the "High Council" of villains he has already made deals with... Abra Kadabra (Who James is honest enough to admit always slightly freaked out the other Flash Rogues), Luthor, Circe and Doctor Polaris who all comment on how impressive and powerful Neron is, and how he can make their evil dreams comes true and then...



It was a close run thing between this scene and the scene where we find out what the Joker traded his soul for, but I love the notion about how even other villains see the Joker, and it's the little caved-in skull with the domino mask and the crowbar swizzle stick that just raise the "Eeeeeewww!" factor to stratospheric levels.

Never read it - what did Joker trade his soul for?

Also: not a huge Porter fan usually, but that is some aces art right there.

He traded his soul for a box of Cuban cigars.

....They were REALLY good cigars, tho.

the only thing that would make that better is if they were the cigars that go BANG when you light them....

He did come to regret it later though, as in the Last Laugh storyline he suddenly realised that selling your soul when you're the Joker isn't that smart a move when your own death is imminent.

Oh man, I'd forgotten the dominoed skull. Probably protective amnesia. Ewwwww...

Yeah - exactly. Just what level of psychosity (is that a word? It should be) the Joker is or should be at is debatable, and much debated, but one thing all should agree on is that the dude is SCARY. There is almost no one in the DCU quite as capable of freaking people out as the Joker, and this illustrates that nicely.
