As played by the late Heath Ledger in Batman: The Dark Knight, and Jared Leto in Suicide Squad, the latest recent live-action versions of the Joker have been among the most debated iterations of the character. A new fan-produced short has them fighting each other.

The folks at the ismahawk YouTube channel throw two very different takes on Batman’s archenemy at each other in a new video. While the impersonations leave something to be desired, you do get a sense of how divergent each Joker is from the other. Suicide Squad Joker makes a loud, flashy entrance and seems to be more of a strategic squad-leader type whereas The Dark Knight Joker comes off as more improvisatory and chaotic. Of course, only one of them gets to win, and there’s a little twist that makes the victory sting a whole lot more for the clown who loses.
