A major villain, and an enemy of Batman and the Justice League.

Description

The Joker is one of the more prominent villains in this series. He is shown to be slim and of medium height, has very pale skin, a Roman nose, a wide mouth with very red lips, and a long pointed chin. His shiny dark hair is swept back in spikes and has a green coloring and, for some reason, the whites of his eyes are yellow. Joker always wears a purple suit that has a tight evening dress-coat with wide shoulders and long tails, a white flower pin and a large bow tie.

In line with his usual theme of being clownish and jokey, he is very talkative (in an English-style accent), continually cracks jokes, frequently laughs out loud, often has a broad maniacal smile and runs in a clownish manner with his feet splayed. However, he can be briefly serious and mean when confronting his enemies. His intention is either to destroy Batman or other superheroes or just cause mayhem, and shows himself to be fanatical enough to risk his own life while trying to destroy others. Joker takes delight in toying with his opponents by, for instance, giving them time to try to stop his crimes.

When in action, Joker is agile and acrobatic, and can make use of weapons like small gas bombs, a small crossbow (concealed in his coat) or 'joke shop' items like a pop gun that can shoot entangling streamers, a party whistle that can blow gas, playing cards that create smoke when thrown, bomb-like firecrackers, or a buzzer that can give an electrocuting handshake. A more substantial device he uses is a giant "super laughing gas" bomb. Also in one story, Joker makes use of a 'Mother Box' from Apokolips to dodge the pursuing Justice League and in another, tries to make use of Lex Luthor's "bomb of ultimate destruction". As elsewhere, he can be seen in scenes where he is surrounded by outsized versions of everyday objects. To infiltrate the Watchtower, he adopts an impenetrable disguise.

For transport, he can drive a van with a 'joker' face on the front and 'ha ha ha' emblazoned on the sides, but can also drive more normal cars, and these vehicles all share the same color scheme as his suit.

His center of operations appears to be Gotham City (he mentions "the abandoned amusement park" near Arkham Asylum), and he is usually opposed by Batman though he is often in prison instead. Joker is never supported by a gang of followers but can have allies such as the unreliable Lex Luthor or Desaad of the New Gods. However, he is not seen to be associated with Harley Quinn as elsewhere, though she does make reference to him.
