Jack-A-Dandy is a fictional comic book super villain created by writer Alan Moore and artist Rob Liefeld, as guided by Mort Weisinger. The rogue is modelled after the Joker and the Riddler to be the archenemy of comic book hero Professor Night, a tribute hero the Batman mythos.

His gimmick consist of dressing like an early twentieth century high society gentleman and creating havoc out of boredom. In one of the "Supreme" earlier stories, he teams up with Darius Dax to switch Supreme and Professor Night's minds, but the duo manage to reverse the effect and switch the minds of the two villains.
