Even super villains need a vacation.
The Joker from “Batman” was spotted jet-skiing on the East River this weekend — apparently taking a break from terrorizing Gotham City.
A man dressed as the comic book arch-villain, with full-on white face makeup and signature red painted smile, was pictured Sunday, skipping the waves under the Brooklyn Bridge.
Bizarrely, the cuffs of his purple coat were emblazoned with the insignia of his nemesis, Batman.
The stunt put a smile on some faces.
“New York is a strange place man. I think I saw The Joker on water today,” one person tweeted Saturday, along with a clip of the criminal mastermind on his red watercraft.
It’s not the first time the Joker’s had a blast on Big Apple waterways.
Actress Olivia Wilde spotted a person dressed as the DC Comics character ripping through the East River on a jet ski last August.
The more recent antic also brought to mind the now-viral photo of Facebook honcho Mark Zuckerberg zipping on an electric surfboard in Hawaii — while wearing enough white sunscreen on his face to make the Joker blush.
The 36-year-old billionaire’s geeky moment drew comparisons to Cesar Romero’s portrayal of the villain as a surfer in the iconic “Surf’s Up! Joker’s Under!” episode of the 1960s TV-series “Batman.”
