Well here’s my second attempt to enter this competition, I decided the other one I had planned had too much work still to do so I started another entry. It really was an exercise in time management as I only started him on the 21st with 8 days till deadline day.
I got this head a while back and really wanted to do something with it, I love the Joker (call me old school but Nicholson still did it best) and I LOVE MOTU so the decision to combine the two was an easy one. I also figured this could actually happen (DC vs Mortal Kombat, DCUC/MOTUC two packs).
I made up a small story as I went
The Joker awoke to find he wasn’t in Gotham anymore, he had no idea where he was or how he got there. Could this be another of my waking dreams he thought to himself. As he moved to get up and have a look around he noticed something strange. He was naked, he had heard before that trans dimensional travel often results in loss of clothing. Unphased he picked himself up and set about exploring the strange new land he found himself in.
He soon found his old trusty suit would not have served him well at all in this land of barbarians and wizards so he did not miss it. Instead he fashioned himself a new suit, one that would serve his needs much better.
After a while he started to realize this was not a dream and this was the new reality he found himself in. The constant battle that seemed to rage between good and evil presented The Joker with a unique opportunity. While He-man and the Masters were battling Skeletor, his evil warriors and Hordak and his Henchmen there was no-one watching over the underbelly of Eternia. Also strangely there was very little crime. This, The Joker planned to change.
He is now known throughout Eternia as Jo-Ker The Clown prince of Eternia and rules the underworld with an iron fist and slightly deranged manner. He knows that most of the time the enforcers of Eternia are often far too busy to bother him but when they do he’s always ready for the fight. He is proficient in the use of laser guns but his real favourites are his trusty blades, Harley, Beth, The twins and Silvia.
