I just read the synopsis for the new Justice League manga, and one comment in it made me think. Does the Joker and Lex Luthor teaming up really make sense? I mean, I know why DC pushes that villain Team-up: to mirror Batman and Superman team ups. But with the heroes, it makes a little more sense. They are vastly different people, but Batman and Superman are still both heroes trying to protect the innocent. What do Joker and Luthor have in common at all. The only time I think it worked was in the World’s Finest cartoon, where Luthor wanted any chance to kill Superman, far fetched as it was, and Joker wanted money. Even there, it unraveled near instantly. What other reason would these two ever team up? Their goals and modus opperendai are way too different.
