An insanely homicidal super-villain with no known name or past, The Joker' s white skin, green hair, ruby-red lips, and purple suit belied the chaotic nature that was underlying his colorful appearance.
With no super-powers beyond his capacity for incredible violence and destruction, the Joker prided himself on being the one villain in Batman 's extensive Rogues' Gallery who shared a unique connection to the hero, and disturbingly viewed the Dark Knight as not only his greatest enemy, but his best friend as well.
As intelligent as he was violent, the Joker formulated countless plans to destroy Gotham Citywhich led to the brutal deaths of thousands of men, women, and children over the years to simply feed his lust for anarchy and notoriety and satisfy his sadistic sense of humor.
One of Batman's oldest enemies and his main nemesis with a tendency to cheat death on countless occasions, the Joker haunted Batman's life for years, and was often responsible for some of the most horrendous and tragic moments of his life, including the abduction, torture, and murder of Jason Toddthe paralysis of Barbara Gordonand the death of Talia al Ghul.
Seeking to break Batman's moral code and create as much destruction and chaos as possible, Joker's unpredictable nature made his plans to destroy Gotham complex and difficult to thwart. Since his emergence within Gotham on Christmas Eve, Batman arkham city doctor freeze wife sexual dysfunction Joker seized complete control of the city's criminal underworld, gained thousands of followers in the process, oversaw a majority of its crimes and operations, and quickly became the city's most infamous criminal.
With his murderous and chaotic actions serving as the catalyst for massive plans that constantly targeted Batman, Gotham City, and the world itself, the Joker always plotted and contrived situations that put the Dark Knight in a position that threatened his moral code of never taking a life, no matter how evil.
The self-styled Clown Prince of Crime had no superpowers, beyond a capacity for incredible violence and a skill at creating deadly mayhem. Joker frequently concocted elaborate schemes to entrap his arch nemesis, Batman. Allegedly, the man who became the Joker had gotten his start at a comedy club as a stand-up comedian. However, when he attempted to recite a joke, he ended up heckled by the displeased audience.
Pushed to his limit, he ended up attacking his audience in both rage and terror, and ruthlessly beat them unconscious.
The man's troubles did not end there, however, as he was ambushed shortly thereafter by several gangsters under the command of the Falcone Crime Family, and was strong-armed Batman arkham city doctor freeze wife sexual dysfunction becoming the criminal mastermind, the Red Hoodwhich forced him into committing a heist at the Ace Chemical Processing Plantthreatening him with death if he didn't comply, and also showing him his pregnant wife, whom they presumably significantly injured to the point of death, to back up their threat.
However, he ended up ambushed by Batman who, at the time, underwent his first year of crime-fightingand was dunked into experimental chemicals.
That, alongside the overall events of the "really bad day," caused the man, who renamed himself The Joker, to desire revenge against Batman. Whether the story was completely true or not was unknown, as the Joker himself had admitted that the encounter with Batman may have done permanent damage to his sanity and mind. Loeb declared that the criminal had been "run out of the city", while his case still remained active in Batman's personal files due to his identity remaining a mystery and his status unknown.
It should be noted however, that the Joker later become notorious for telling dozens of long and frequently fantastical tales of his past over the years, all of which were significantly different in every detail except for one: This made anything that the Joker said or remembered with regards to his past highly questionable as he himself may not have been able to remember and simply made up details as he went along.
Due to that, Joker truly had no known name or backstory, which ranged from him being a broken family man to a sadistic criminal and hit-man, with the only clue closest to being true was that he suffered one, "bad day". Additionally, it remained inconclusive to many psychiatrists if the Joker was indeed insane or purely an evil individual who hid behind Batman arkham city doctor freeze wife sexual dysfunction mask of insanity to serve his own purposes and avoid the death penalty.
Regardless, the Joker clearly demonstrated on numerous occasions to be highly calculating and intelligent, bordering on a genius-level, and fully acknowledged the brutality and inhumanity of his crimes, knew that they were evil in and simply committed them for enjoyment.
Batman arkham city doctor freeze wife sexual dysfunction self-awareness implied that Joker might not truly be insane and was simply evil, but due to his often erratic behavior during his various therapy sessions and crimes, complete lack of empathy for any of his victims and associates, and disregard for even his own life, Gotham's legal system remained hesitant to deem him a sane individual.
The Joker's love of inhumane violence and torture were indicative on how he viewed the world: Believing that there was no such thing as a truly pure person and people were only as good as society dictated or before they were broken from tragedy, Joker often sought to create a world of anarchy and chaos to show the world what truly comprised humanity.
His laughs towards random and pointless acts of crime, war, and violence, including Arkham Citywere a further indication of those nihilistic views, with his own immense carnage becoming his way of indulging in what he believed was the true nature of humanity if pushed into madness from enough bad days or tempting incentives. Through those acts, Joker's only motive for creating deadly violence was simply for the sake of it, his own enjoyment, and becoming infamous to the world through doing so.
Joker did not value money or absolute power, though he did make use of such aspects throughout his plans and relished in the level of control that he had over people and the city, but creating a world of destruction, starting with Gotham, and carving a legacy for himself, a legacy that would never be forgotten or pushed to the side, as he himself was so often in his early life. To Joker, Gotham was his stage and the people of Gotham, his victims, were his audience to watch and become engulfed in his sadistic showmanship in order to feed his insatiable lust for attention and never being forgotten, his only true fear.
When Batman proved himself to be his worthy rival and nemesis for years to come, the Joker became obsessed with occupying Batman's thoughts and proving to him first and foremost what he wanted to prove to the world: Seeking to establish himself as one of Gotham's most iconic figures and carve a name for himself in the Gotham criminal underworld, the Joker began to target Roman Sionis, also known as Black Maskthe city's most powerful and sadistic crime lord.
With Black Mask having unlimited wealth, resources, men, power, and complete control over the criminal underworld as he consolidated his power and eliminated his opposition, Joker saw Black Mask's criminal empire as the perfect means to gain control of the city and form his own gang for his agenda of chaos. Initially performing small time, but extremely violent crimes, heists, and spree murders in order to introduce his image into the criminal underworld, including blowing up a senior health care residence, the Joker eventually gathered and consolidated a small gang of his own.
With some loyal followers under his control, the Joker began his grander plans and stole chemicals from Sionis' Steel Mill, a front that was used to create chemicals and drugs, to manufacture explosives, which enticed Black Mask to have the Joker followed and monitored in order to learn more on what he was planning. The Joker was already one step ahead, however, and began to stalk Roman's girlfriend, Tiffany Ambroseas he kept tabs over her boyfriend's criminal activities.
This understandably spooked Tiffany, who was placed within a safe house at Lacey Towers by Roman, until he could track the Joker down and neutralize him.
Unfortunately for Black Mask and Tiffany, the Joker used his own connections in the underworld to learn of Tiffany's whereabouts, broke into the safe house, and waited for her to come home. When Tiffany did so after holiday shopping, Joker violently smashed her head into the counter, which knocked her out, and tied the defenseless up to the chandelier in the living room.
Black Mask soon began to suspect that something was wrong and had Giovanni Luchesedisguised as himself, Batman arkham city doctor freeze wife sexual dysfunction the safe house as a diversion while he sneaked in the back to gain the upper hand on the Joker. When Luchese arrived through the front door, Joker gleefully waited in a chair and immediately shot the man through the chest, which instantly killed him, knowing that he was not his true target.
The real Black Mask then sneaked up behind Joker and attacked him, but Joker proved to be an exceptionally competent fighter and overpowered and beat Black Mask, tying up his hands in the process.
To eliminate any evidence of him being at the safe house, Joker used a cocktail incendiary device to set the room ablaze. As Tiffany struggled from the heat of the fire below her, Joker then cruelly and sadistically made Roman hold his gun and shoot Tiffany through the heart in a game of Russian Roulette, which immediately killed her, as Joker dragged the struggling Roman out with him.
Joker held Black Mask captive at a hidden location Batman arkham city doctor freeze wife sexual dysfunction tortured him over the course of several days, forcing him to reveal every detail about himself and his operations.
Using those details to his advantage, Joker took Roman's mask and white suit, disguised himself as the crime lord, and took complete control of his gang, resources, and power. Joker then plotted to first destroy all of Black Mask's power and standing in the city, take his place, and institute his own brand of anarchy and social disorder. With Black Mask's connections his own, Joker had access to nearly every level of Gotham's infrastructure through his inside agents, as well the entire Gotham City Police Department under his complete control to do his bidding as a secondary gang.
Joker's ultimate desire was to make Gotham his own by sunrise and leave the city in a state of ruin for his own personal amusement. The Joker also managed to take over an old amusement park on the outskirts of the city, murdering the owner in the process, stole a massive amount of carnival equipment, and began to manufacture excessive amounts of a poisonous gas that was known as Joker Toxinwhich left victims violently laughing themselves to death, in preparation for his schemes that took further root later that night.
Joker would proceed to horrifically test out this toxin on numerous abducted victims with the Sionis Steel Mill, until he obtained the desired effect, and disposed of the bodies within barrels of chemicals. As the assassins arrived in Gotham, including BaneDeathstrokeDeadshotCopperheadKiller CrocFireflyShivaand the Electrocutionerwith their respective gangs, and armed with weaponry that was provided by the Joker's agents or The Penguinthe city's body count and crime rate skyrocketed as they created wanton destruction throughout Old and New Gotham in order to lure Batman into their crossfires.
To this end, while still disguised as Black Mask, Joker began to lure Batman into the crossfires of his sadistic game by having Deathstroke arrange for a tip, that related to a briefcase, to serve as a trap for the latter to attack him. However, despite a grueling fight that nearly resulted in Deathstroke winning, Batman managed to escape, largely due to Deadshot's interference.
Joker was later confronted by Deathstroke about his hiring of at least one other assassin besides himself, but Joker dismissed him, said that he had his chance, and that the night was still young. After he noticed one of his henchmen begging for help due to being severely wounded from the blast, Joker then proceeded to approach the hapless henchman, grabbed a burning piece of rubble that was filled with nails, and brutally beat the man to death with it.
With the assassins arriving in Gotham and already laying out the foundations for their traps for the Dark Knight, Joker proceeded to institute the next steps of his operations to throw Gotham into anarchy by targeting the forces of the GCPD. Knowing that Commissioner Loeb, the corrupt leader of the police force, was planning a press conference at Blackgate Prison and also needed to be taken care of if the GCPD would take his more chaotic orders, Joker then handed down the order to Black Mask's Henchmen to abduct Warden Martin from Blackgate and brought him to "My Alibi", a night club that served as a meeting ground for the criminal underworld and was previously under the control of Black Mask.
When Joseph was brought to Joker at the club, Joker tortured Batman arkham city doctor freeze wife sexual dysfunction with a lit cigarette, burned out his left eye, and threatened to slaughter his entire family if he did not lower his security at Blackgate. Joseph reluctantly agreed and had the security for a portion of Blackgate become more lax in an effort to protect his family.
With security lowered at the prison and Loeb perfectly in the line of fire, Joker then staged an attack on Blackgate disguised as Black Mask, with several of his men and one of his assassins, Killer Croc, a cannibalistic killer with Batman arkham city doctor freeze wife sexual dysfunction rare condition that made him appear more and more reptilian as the years passed by.
Murdering dozens of guards and leaving a path of bloodshed and destruction behind him, the Joker took Commissioner Loeb hostage; the Commissioner was present at the prison to oversee the execution of Julian Day, also known as Calendar Manin order to gather massive support from Gotham's citizens and City Hall. Joker had Calendar Man released from the Execution Chamber and set him loose, believing that his love for torture and murder on the holidays was the perfect setup for Christmas Eve, which eventually led to several deaths at Day's hands later that night.
Joker then had Loeb forcibly placed within the Gas Chamber under the pretense that the Commissioner no longer served his best interests with so many of his men imprisoned and wanted to start off with "a clean slate". The reality of the situation was, however, that Joker sought to take complete control of Black Mask's criminal activities and eliminate anything that could be used as a benefit for the fallen crime lord.
Loeb's murder also prompted chaos throughout the criminal underworld and instituted a power vacuum throughout the GCPD; chaos that fed the Joker's love for anarchy.
Loeb was then gassed in the Gas Chamber and died in mere seconds as Joker continued through the prison with Black Mask's Henchmen and Croc, killing all who stood in his way.
While in route to the roof, Joker discovered that he was being monitored by one of the Penguin's Drones and ordered Croc to destroy it and grab the memory card.
Though Croc merely smashed the device to the ground without obtaining the memory card, much to Joker's anger. Batman, however, who arrived at the prison just minutes prior, obtained the memory card from the remains of the device to later analyze at the Batcave. Arriving on the roof to find a set of helicopters ready to make a quick escape, Joker left Croc to deal with Batman as he boarded one of the copters with several of his men and escaped.
While Croc was aided by some of Black Mask's Henchmen, Batman was ultimately able to defeat them all and learned from Croc about the enlistment of seven other assassins. Shortly thereafter, Joker was informed by one of Black Mask's corrupt cops that the Penguin was invading Falcone's territory regarding the weapons business, but the Joker dismissed the event, as he didn't care about balance. As Joker consolidated several of the escaped convicts into his expanding gang, much of the honest, straight portion of the GCPD contained the situation at Blackgate, serving as the perfect diversion to keep the rest of Gotham under even more lax security than usual.
Branden instructed his squad to neglect their other responsibilities in light
Batman arkham city doctor freeze wife sexual dysfunction collecting the bounty, which also ensured that a majority of the police department would be too distracted with finding and killing Batman to prevent any of Joker's plans from coming to fruition.
This enabled Joker's Henchmen to commit a wide variety of crimes and heists throughout the night, including stealing countless equipment, weaponry, and trucks from AmerTek, a military industrial corporation that specialized in the construction of steel for weapons manufacturing. Meanwhile, the murder of Commissioner Loeb also prompted the hand of many second-rate gangs and mobs to overtake territory and begin wars with the other fractions for ultimate control while other gangs broke off their previous deals with the corrupt police force, no longer trusting them with Loeb gone, and retaliated against their efforts to resume their deals.
Additionally, more outlandish criminals began to surface and took advantage of the rising destruction to further their own designs, and caused chaos throughout all of Gotham just as the Joker had planned.
Joker also hired the services of Edward Nashtona master hacker with plans of his own for the city, and had him ideally situated within the GCPD thanks to his newly acquired connections throughout Gotham's infrastructure to work as the head of the Cyber Crime Division. Within his new position of power as an additional inside agent, Enigma used his resources and access privileges to take complete control of all the GCR Towers throughout Gotham in order to block Batman's auto-navigation trackers that were used for the Batwing and kept watch over the entire city.
Enigma further added to the chaos by using his surveillance over the city to collect incriminating information on countless political individuals in Gotham, placing them all within extortion files that were hidden around the city, and blackmailed the individuals for money and power.
Regardless of their actions however, Enigma intended to release the data to the press, which would result in resignations, murders, and utter chaos throughout the streets as he worked on his plans to eliminate all of the corrupt and the unintelligent.
To further aid in his mission and plans, Enigma used the extensive funding that came from Joker to hire a wide variety of street thugs, muggers, and killers to collect information, store them in extortion files, hide the files for eventual pickup, and guard the GCR Towers.
Enigma also set up close to a hundred relays throughout Gotham in order to Batman arkham city doctor freeze wife sexual dysfunction his own network from being hacked and keep tabs over all of Gotham, while also rigging the security controls of GCR Towers to blow if anyone tried to interfere, leading to the death of David Shannon.
Those modifications were done with the help of a third party, a low level thug named John F. Bakerwho was hired by Enigma and later killed by him in order to further cover up his tracks. As Batman was hunted down from all fronts and continued to fight against the assassins, he learned of the Joker's existence when he investigated the apparent murder Black Mask and Tiffany at Lacey Towers.
Batman concluded however that it was not Black Mask, but a simply a decoy; he broke into the GCPD Building to gain access to the National Criminal Database in order to learn more about the crime scene.
At the same time, Joker sent scores of Black Mask's Henchmen to infiltrate and take control of the sewer systems through a secret passageway from the Steel Mill.
Once there, Joker's Henchmen set up shop and placed hundreds of demolition explosives underneath the foundations of countless buildings, including the Gotham Fire Station, the Train Station, the GCPD, and many others in order to leave Gotham in a state of ruin by sunrise. While Batman was able to subdue Joker's men, preventing them from putting automatic timers on the explosives, and gained access to the National Criminal Database, he was ultimately unable to deactivate the bombs as they were also being remotely controlled and too sensitive to disarm himself.
As he looked through the GCPD's files, Batman learned that Sionis owned and had complete control over the Gotham Merchants Bank, which he used as a front to launder much of his ill-gotten fortune.
Batman soon realized that Joker had taken Black Mask hostage after forcing him to kill Tiffany and intended to use him to gain access to Gotham Merchants Bank, which had security measures that only Sionis could deactivate. When Batman asked Alfred Pennyworth to check any records that could be related to the Joker, Alfred found nothing in the Gotham Criminal Database or any other that could shed light on this new criminal, making it seem as the Joker had simply appeared out of nowhere. With nothing to go on other than the implication that the Joker was heading next to the Gotham Merchants Bank, Batman left for the bank in Old Gotham to meet his new enemy just as the clock struck midnight and Christmas day officially began in Gotham.
True to Batman's detective work, the Joker explosively arrived at the bank in a stolen ambulance, murdered over two dozen of the bank's employees, sadistically torturing many of them with the use of the bank's Christmas decorations and television sets. Joker then took the bank manager hostage and forced her and Sionis to open up the vault that contained much of Roman's laundered money.
Joker then had his men steal billions of dollars and loaded it up onto the ambulance while Roman was tied and gagged. The Joker injected the bank manager with a lethal dose of his newly created Joker Toxin, which caused her to gradually laugh more and more uncontrollably. As Joker revealed that "Batman arkham city doctor freeze wife sexual dysfunction" of Black Mask's men were loyally working for him due to the benefits that they now reap, expanding his gang into over a thousand followers as a result, his men donned new Joker masks as the villain informed Batman that his attempts at assassinating him were simply part of a much larger plan.
