The Joker's Daughter Revealed

Wait, WHAT? Come check out the alleged daughter of the Clown Prince of Crime.

According to a new teaser from DC, it looks like Batman's arch enemy has a daughter. Based on the image posted by Bob Harris, it definitely looks like the apple didn't fall far from the tree. Is she really his daughter or just a fan? How'd she get his face -- did it wash into the sewers where she lurks or does this mean the villain is still around and he passed along his lovely mug? Did he have her with Harley Quinn? Is this the New 52 introduction of Duela Dent? There's so many questions, but as of right now, all we have is this image.

Which series she'll show up in has yet to be revealed. What do you make of this, Viners?

Wouldn't mind so much if it weren't for the astonishingly dreadful design!

The face looks like a mask.

Looks like somebody wants revenge on our DC caped crusader of Gotham aka the bat who became a man.

This reminds me of the positive pregnancy test in arkham city

She's probably a Batgirl or Teen Titans villain. Maybe Nightwing, since this looks like it's designed by Brett Booth and he's taking over art on Nightwing's series.

I have a feeling it's the New 52 Duela Dent somehow.

I'm sorry, is that a broken glass pie?

Posted by Boogiepop

I'm assuming this will be Duela Dent, also that she is wearing a mask.

They'll start a new series with Harper Row as some sort of crime-fighter. This girl is just obsessed with Joker, and she'll appear as a recurring villain.

Can't wait to find out who (or what) this is!

Interesting. I was skeptical of Damien at first - but then I thought it added some depth and intrigue over time. I wasn't disappointed then so I'm willing to be patient about this. More-over, this girl could conceivably be a daughter from his previous marriage that he heretofore has never known about. We'll see.

That would kill so much of the Joker mythos that you don't known where he is coming from or who he was. He has multiple choices.

Too much. The concept can work, and parts of the appearance, but everything together just looks terrible. If anything, I think she would look tons better without the Joker mask/face. Some typical Joker clown makeup would've been more than enough. The midriff HAHAHA seems a bit much as well.

Harper Row?

I don't understand?

This is terrible news, ive always hated duela dent and this new design isnt helping at all

Posted by TheCowman

From the minds that brought you Stripper-Harley.

Posted by Bogey

Looks like fan art.

I would still mind, but so so much less. IMO worst design of the entire New52. "Hahaha" tattoo across the stomach? really?

Posted by jwalser3

.......No thank you.

Posted by Smurfboy

I think it looks silly. Maybe the story itself changes my mind. Heck, even Wolverine has a son name Daken and I thought he was cool.

Posted by knightofthechronicle

Eh, we'll see where it goes...

Posted by Solomonwreath

Why is her face cut off?

Edited by ShadowSwordmaster

No just no.

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

Would this be Earth 0's Duela Dent then, and the Ame-Comi Girl Duela Dent part of an alternate reality? Just curious really...

Posted by XIIXIIX

not sure what to think if she's really jokers daughter...hopefully they can come up with something good

Edited by mrpandopool

First, I´ll tap dat, but seriously this can get cool and it seems an interesting plot seed.

It would be cool if they make her the daughter Joker had in the killing joke. That could be really good if well executioned.

Posted by kidchipotle

Booooo. I dislike this!

Posted by redhood21

eh i'd hit it

Posted by CrazyScarecrow

Why can't they bring in Hush or the Crime Doctor and have him put the Joker's face back on. I admit I thought it was cool at first and seemed Jokerish, but now it is getting boring. Just give the clown his damn face back please DC!

Edited by Kneepawn

welp. I'm done. They could have at least changed the face so it didnt just look like joker was crossdressing... lol

Posted by trebean

Is......... Is she wearing Joker's Face "Mask"? (Get it? FACE MASK!)

Posted by RustyRoy

She's creepier than Joker.

Posted by TitanTempest

I want them to show the face under the mask, thats what Im waiting for.... o_0

Posted by AkaBoAli

So many questions, all that I don't care about. We just had a huge Joker arc, why introduce his so called daughter now?

Edited by KryptonSabbath
Posted by LarryDavis

I think it's probably just Harley reinventing herself, but who knows.

Edited by oliviae

a daughter?! holy crap. wooo! Sounds exciting! :)

Posted by FadeToBlackBolt

Oh look, I'm right about the New 52 being crap catered to idiots who only value shocks.

Wait, I've been right about that the whole time.

Oh well, looks I'm even more right today.

Posted by BR_Havoc

@fadetoblackbolt: Its been common knowledge for most of comics now that they want to cater cheap shocks to sell. DC has just gone of the edge with it in the new 52 every press release every change is done in a way to shock or to be so ridiculous that people have to see whats going on. Thing is being shock driven and edgy can only go so far before people stop caring, DC has started to lose sales so they will ramp up the shock till they go back up or people stop caring.

Posted by Darkus_99

I'm guessing we'll find out in the next Batman Arkham game...

Posted by Equonox

Considering this girl is in her teens (at least), and Harley is late twenties (at most), there's no way she's Harley's kid, given that Harley didn't meet Joker until she was a doctor (early-mid twenties). Hoping this isn't really stupid (like it looks)...

Posted by Black_Claw

Good lord she's hideous! Then again, her "daddy" isn't the most attractive person on the planet...
