Violator may look and sound ridiculous but the guy is a force of nature. His range of powers make him almost unstoppable to the point even Spawn had trouble dealing with him.

His name may be silly. But he means business. F*cko from Scary or Die is a weirdly aggressive clown. He eats people and will stop at nothing from spreading the cannibalistic disease to others. F*cko shows up at a party where he is irked and bites a person. Soon the bite transfers the flesh eating disease to others as the entire party turns into a bloody festival of horrors. His grisly appearance also makes him one of the scariest Hollywood clown monsters.
