For loyal Batman fans, the Joker is the enemy, and now he's defaced your Poker set. DC Direct has created a poker set that comes complete with all the poker items, but all have been hit with graffiti-looking images of the Joker, along with messages from him.

The Joker Poker set from DC Direct is selling for $100 online, and comes with collector cards, actual playing cards (albeit defaced ones), poker chips and dice.

Implications - Graffiti was once considered a significant part of societal counter culture, and yet in recent years it has gained a new consumer appreciation. Companies who can develop products that embrace the art of graffiti will instantly find these products appear cool.
