Powers/Abilities: He had no known superhuman powers, but he was good with balls. He was able to juggle with at least 5 balls at once. He also wore a belt made of balls and some balls were painted on his costume.History:
(Daughters of the Dragon#4 (fb) - BTS) - The Mad Juggler was hired by Ricadonna to go after Humbug, one of the thieves that broke into Ricadonna's loft, to get back a computer chip from him.
(Daughters of the Dragon#4) - Unshaved and not up-to date the Mad Juggler went after Humbug to get the valuable computer chip that Humbug and his partners had stolen from Ricadonna. He found Humbug together with Collen Wing on a roof and told him to hand over the chip, but Humbug had to tell him that Ricadonna already had the chip. Mad Juggler asked if the Wrecker or Shocker had finished the job, but Colleen just wanted to know who he was. Mad Juggler introduced himself and when he realized that Colleen and Humbug have never heard of him, he told them that he once fought the Champion sort of. Colleen and Humbug stopped listening to the Mad Juggler and left.

I don't see Ricadonna hiring someone like the Mad Juggler, but maybe she had mistaken him for the Death-Throws' original Oddball. Not much better, but his threat level is at least two classes above the Mad Juggler.
Total shot in the dark here, but could Orville Bock have been the mysterious Mad Juggler prior to his recruitment into the Death-Throws as Oddball?
Humbug and Colleen didn't see him as much of a threat. Maybe he should've used another codename like "Juggler of Doom" or "Deadly Juggler". A change of weapons could've worked either. Burning knives wrapped in snakes instead of billiard balls. Sure a billiard ball could kill you if you get it thrown at your head, but the Mad Juggler didn't show any killer instinct. He just juggled with the balls!
The Mad Juggler should get a tryout with the Death Throws although even they would probably be unimpressed by him.
According to the writer of Daughters of the Dragon, there is no super-hero named Champion. The Mad Juggler just made up an adversary to "pad his resume." Which is kind of too bad, since "Champion" is such a all-purpose name that he/she could've turned out to be almost anything.
