Throughout his appearances throughout the book, the Joker is portrayed as the prime criminal whose characterization is depicted in various forms.

The credit for the Joker’s creation is disputed. On the claim that Jerry Robinson created the concept of this character, Kane gave his response in an interview in 1994:
||Bill Finger and I created the Joker. Bill was the writer. Jerry Robinson came to me with a playing card of the Joker. That’s the way I sum it up. [The Joker] looks like Conrad Veidt — you know, the actor in The Man Who Laughs, [the 1928 movie based on the novel] by Victor Hugo. […] Bill Finger had a book with a photograph of Conrad Veidt and showed it to me and said, ‘Here’s the Joker’. Jerry Robinson had absolutely nothing to do with it, but he’ll always say he created it till he dies. He brought in a playing card, which we used for a couple of issues for him [the Joker] to use as his playing card.
Robinson, whose clown cards were on display from 16 September 2006 to 28 January 2007 at the “Masters of American Comics” exhibition at the Jewish Museum in New York City , and from 24 October 2004 to 28 August 2005 at the William Breiman Jewish Heritage Museum in Atlanta , Georgia . Put, has denied that when Batman # 1 needed to write additional stories quickly, he created the Joker to become such a huge curse of Batman ‘s life , and that he did so in a college course The story was also credited. Regarding the Conrad weight similarity, Robinson stated:
||In that first meeting when I showed them that sketch of the Joker, Bill said it reminded him of Conrad Veidt in The Man Who Laughs. That was the first mention of it…He can be credited and Bob himself, we all played a role in it. The concept was mine. Bill finished that first script from my outline of the persona and what should happen in the first story. He wrote the script of that, so he really was co-creator, and Bob and I did the visuals, so Bob was also.
In his nearly a dozen appearances beginning with Batman # 1 (1940), the clown-shaped, clown-based, joker was a straight-up maniacal lunatic. He was to be murdered soon after his second appearance, after escaping from prison, but editor Witney Ellsworth suggested that the character be spared. A plaque was quickly prepared on which it was displayed that the Joker is still alive and was later added to the story. next issue he was recuperating in a hospital, but a criminal gang drove him out. next several appearances, the Joker often escapes being caught but faces an apparent death (falling from a steep cliff, trapped in a burning building, etc.), leaving his body yet to recover. is.
From his first appearance in Batman # 1, the Joker committed both whimsical and inhumane crimes, with the same logic and rationale, in Batman’s words, “which alone had a meaning for him”. its first appearance, the character leaves his preys, with distorted smiles on their faces, in line with the character’s concept for several decades, the same system of action has been going on.
In Batman # 1, he challenges Gotham’s crime folk and police department by announcing on the radio that he will kill three of Gotham’s key citizens: Henry Claridge, Judge Drake and Jay Wilde at certain times. Batman and Robin investigate crime and find the corpses of casualties with an ever-present smile on their faces. The Joker catches Robin and is ready to murder him with the same deadly brutality, but Batman rescues Robin and the Joker has to go to prison. (This story is repeated in the 2005 illustrated novel Batman: The Man Who Laughs .) In the next episode he survives and continues to escape any captivity in the history of his publication, plaguing Batman and Gotham.
In the 1950s and 1960s, the authors of comic books portrayed the Joker as a harmless, murmuring genocide, following the imposition of the Board of Control for Painting Authority. When Jolius Schwartz took over the editing of the Batman cartoons, in 1964, the Joker had almost completely disappeared from the Batman narrative. The Joker of the 1960s Batman television series is one of the best known characterizations of the Joker.
The establishment of the Earth-One Joker is the result of a retrospective change in the established published history of the character (colloquially known as a retcon). It is commonly accepted that Earth-One’s clowns are responsible for most of the Joker’s appearances from the early-mid-1950s to 1986. The revelation of Batman’s antagonistic image of the ex-Joker is one of the biggest differences that distinguishes the Silver Age Joker from the original iteration of the character.
The actual first appearance of the Joker as the Earth-One character is a matter of presentation as there is no definitive identification of when the Golden Age Earth-Two Joker’s regular published appearance stopped and when the Silver Age Joker character debuted.
In June 1985, after the intertitle, the Crisis of Infinite Earth continued to take effect, discontinuing the publication of Multiverse. Earth-One and all of its inhabitants, including the Joker, were merged into the reorganized non-conforming continuous format commonly known as New Earth.

I tried to understand what Kane and Finger do.” Wanted to. ” Detective Comics # 471-476 (August 1977 – April 1978), which further influenced the 1989 film Batman and the animated series in the 1990s, Acclaimed longtime writer Steve Englehart and pencil artist Marshall Rodgers added elements that deepened the intensity of the Joker’s insanity. In the Steve Englehart / Marshall Rodgers story, “The Laughing Fish”, the Joker is so shameless that he distorts the shape of the fish with a mocking smile, then hopes that he will be cleared of federal trademarks and then murdered by those bureaucrats Who tried to convince him that it was legally impossible to claim such a claim on a natural resource.
Joker had his own nine-digit series in the 1970s, in which he faces various greats and great heroes. Although he is the protagonist of the series, some of the numbers are slaughtered in the same way in which he was the villain, seven of the nine points he kills.

In his absence, Dick Grayson took over Batman’s responsibility, following Bruce Wayne’s disappearance at the hands of Darkseid in Final Crisis . In the early issues of Batman and Robin , Oberon Sexton, a British journalist / detective, appeared in Gautham City with the surname of The Gravedigger. At the time of Sexton’s appearance, a killer named “Domino Killer” had also appeared who murdered members of the Black Glove neatly.

He is beaten by Robin with a force (similar to Jason Todd’s murder), then sees the likeness of the child and the original Batman’s faces, recognizing that he is the son of his old foe. The GCPD officer ignores the pleas of Joker’s aid after deciding that Robin can handle the villain well. However, the Joker’s ostentatious helplessness is another trick.

Strengths, abilities and tools
The Joker takes offense with clown weapons such as blade- packed cards, acid- spraying flowers, cyanide-filled kachoris, nitriglycerin-filled explosive cigars, razor-throwing guns using razor-like flanks, and the joy of a destroying lightning. Buzzer. His most prominent weapon is the Joker Poison, a lethal poison that infects his victims with an open-mouthed smile of death-fear when they die laughing uncontrollably. The venom is found in many forms, from gas spear to liquid poison and it has been its primary weapon since its first appearance. The Joker is immune to all kinds of known poisons, as well as his own ticklish venom; BatmanIn # 663, Morrison writes that “being an avid consumer of their products, the Joker’s resistance to poisons has developed over years of abuse”.
The Joker is portrayed as skilled and highly intelligent in the fields of chemistry and engineering and an expert on explosives. In a short series featuring the third Robin, Tim Drake, the Joker is shown kidnapping a computer expert and admitting that he doesn’t know much about computers, although later writers consider him a good computer literate. Is featured in.
Joker’s unarmed combat skills depend on different authors. Some writers have portrayed the Joker as a very skilled warrior, capable of handling himself in hand-to-hand combat against Batman (sometimes even beating a cloak wearing a jihadi). One of the reasons for his versatility in duality is that he has a long list of hidden equipment and weapons on his own body, which he takes out in a blink of an eye (rolling a handful of explosive marbles to the ground, the clothes of his shoes Retractable knife attached in, etc.); On the other hand, other writers show him physically weak enough to beat him in a single box. But he is described as seamlessly agile. Joker’s duel skills also differ in film and television adaptations.
The Joker has cheated death countless times, even in unavoidable and mortal situations. He is seen caught in explosions, shot repeatedly, dropped from deadly heights, electrocuted and so on, but he always comes back to wreak havoc once again.
Over the decades, a variety of descriptions and possibilities have been expressed in connection with the ostentatious insanity of the Joker. Grant Morrison’s graphic novel Arkham Asylum: A Serious House on Serious Earth reveals that the Joker’s mental state is actually a form of psychic perception, a previously unpredictable form of hyper-sanity. It also reveals that he has no real personality of his own. For his own benefit, he can become a harmless clown and a vicious killer. Later, during the Nightfall saga, Scarecrow and the Joker meet and kidnap the Mayor of Gotham City, Scarecrow turns to the Joker and uses his fear gas to see who the Joker is afraid of. Scarecrow is surprised that, the gas has no effect on the Joker, in return he hits him with a chair. Morrison’sIn JLA , Martian Manhunter is trapped in a surreal maze composed by the Joker , he uses his shape-changer abilities to rearrange his brain to match the Joker’s chaotic thought patterns. In the same storyline, the later Martian Manhunter uses his telepathic power to rearrange the Joker’s brain and create momentary understanding, albeit after a lot of effort, that too is only temporary. In those few moments, the Joker regrets many of his crimes and pleads for a chance for redemption.
Ellsworlds: In Distant Fires , a nuclear war makes the Joker smarter but in this war the powers of all other greats are taken away. In Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight # 145, Batman becomes smarter when he puts the Joker in one of Ra’s al Gul’s Lazarus pits after being shot, a completely reversed state of insanity. Only comes after doing it. However, Vivek is only temporary and soon the Joker returns to his “normal” state.
Although many stories have been added, no definitive backstory has been established regarding the Joker and his real name has also not been confirmed. He himself is confused as to what really happened; As he says in The Killing Joke , “Sometimes I remember in one way, sometimes others … If I have a past, I want it to be multiple choices. Ha ha! Ha!” The film Dark Knight somewhat confirms this habit. Although he does not reveal his full origins, each time he tells a different way when the Joker recounts the events that are responsible for his appearance. Arkham Asylum: A Serious House on Serious EarthIn, Grant Morrison wrote, it is said that the Joker cannot be paranoid, but he has a kind of “extreme sanity” in which he reconstructs himself daily to keep pace with the chaotic flow of modern urban life.
The first original reference, Detective Comics # 168 (February 1951), revealed that the Joker had once been a criminal named Redhood. In the story, he is a chemical engineer, stealing the persona of Redhood in the company he employs. After the robbery, which Batman stops, he falls into a tub of chemical waste. He walks out with bleached white skin, red lips, green hair and a permanent smile.
The most widely cited backdrop, The Killing Joke as the most widely credible reference in the official DC Comics publication Who’s Who in the DC UniverseIs depicted in It originally portrays him as an engineer at a chemical plant, who leaves a job to become a stage comedian, but fails miserably. Desperate to assist his pregnant wife, Jeanie, he agrees to help two criminals enter the neighborhood card company by breaking the door of the plant where she worked. In this version of the story, the redhood persona is given to the inner man of each act (thus the same man never occurs twice); Thus he appears to be the kingpin, who lets the remaining two criminals escape. During the planning, the police approach him and tell him that his wife and unborn child have died in a domestic accident.
Traumatized by grief, he tries to back out of the plan, but the culprits strengthen his hands to keep his promise. As soon as they enter the plant, they are immediately apprehended by security guards, firing shots in which both the criminals are killed. When the engineer tries to escape, he is confronted by Batman, who is investigating the disturbance. The frightened engineer jumps over a railing and suddenly falls into a shackle of chemicals. When he comes to the surface of a nearby reservoir, he removes the hood and sees his shadow: white skin like bleached chalk, red lips like rubies and shiny green hair. Along with these events, other misfortunes of that day make him completely insane, resulting in the birth of the Joker.
The story “Pushback” ( Batman: Gotham Knights # 50-55) partially supports this version of the Joker’s Genesis tale. In this, a witness (who coincidentally turns out to be Edward Nigma) states that the Joker’s wife was kidnapped and murdered by a corrupt soldier working for criminals to force the engineer to commit the crime. The Joker attempts to find the corrupt police officer who committed the murder, but is badly beaten by Hush and expelled from Gotham before it happens. “Payback” also portrays a pre-extortion clown with a wife – identified as “Jack”, further supporting this version.
Paul Dini – Alex Ross’ story “Case Study” offers a completely different theory. The story reveals that Joker was a sadistic punk who worked to get his place in the food chain of Gotham’s criminals until he became the leader of a powerful gang. He was still looking for a possible adventure in this dirty work, identifying himself with the Redhood so that he could commit a short-term crime. Eventually, he had a devastating encounter with Batman resulting in this distortion. However, the story shows that the Joker remained sane and researched his crimes in order to get his vengeance from Batman so that they would look like the work of a morbid brain.And he could escape permanent imprisonment under the cover of insanity. Unfortunately, upon discovery, a written report propounding this theory has been found to have been written by the Joker’s crazy companion / girlfriend, Doctor Harleen Quinzel, also known as Harley Quinn, in any courtroom. Disqualifies its credibility.
Batman Confidential(# 7-12) The second publication earlier version re-imagines the Joker as a talented criminal who renounces the identity of the headhood, also known as Jack, and who is so bored with his work that almost commits suicide It is removed. He talks to Harleen Quinzel, a female waiter who assures her of finding something to live for. After he misses one of his jobs, Jack becomes obsessed with Batman, and as a result attracts Batman’s attention in a dance hall. Jack injures Lorna Shore (who is on a date with Bruce Wayne), eventually causing Batman to spoil his face with the Batrang. Jack escapes and Batman informs Jack of the goons, who torture Jack at a chemical plant. Jack kills several attackers after escaping, but falls into an empty tank,
J. Written by Michele Straczynski and based on the origin of the Joker, The Brave and the Bold Issue # 31. In this, Autum assists in the operation of the Joker’s brain. Inside the Joker’s head he is seen as a pre-Joker’s Jack. As a child, Jack kills a goon badly; As a teenager he locks his parents in the house with fire because they saw him killing the pets of the neighbors . Jack eventually joins a gang and inexplicably murders a shopkeeper, leading to the murder of his comrades, and then killing him when he is condemned by a member of the gang. His career as a clown begins shortly after, including the mention of the film The Dark Knight by a panel .
The Joker is called the clown prince of crime (or anarchy), the harlequin of hatred (hell), and the ace of slaves. During the development of the DC Universe, incarnations of development, presentations and clowns took two forms. The original and currently dominant image is of a highly intelligent and psychopathic criminal genius with a distorted, sadistic humorism . The second presentation of the character is an eccentric but harmless product of the image from the late 1940s to the 1960s, as well as in comic books, as well as in the 1960s television series. Batman: The Animated Series blended these two aspects, though most productions use one or the other characterization.
The Joker has an indifferent attitude towards life and humanity to some extent, even saying at times that he has found life meaningless and humanity the biggest joke in the world. His relationship with Batman relies on complex and extensive characterization. In some versions, Batman is the Joker’s most disliked enemy, whose death is his highest goal. In others, the Joker is happy to find his position the antagonist of Batman and wants the conflict to continue, as he does in The Dark KnightI say, “Kill you?” I don’t wanna kill you … you’re so funny. ” He seems to respect the intelligence and tenacious character of his greatest enemy, but is dismayed by his loyalty to Darknight and his commitment to protecting many corrupt criminals, policemen, and even the citizens who hate his presence. His sadism is also reflected in short stories such as the Joker’s Asylum, where he is also a penguin, venomous scrotum, two-faced, where he sarcastically responds to reconciling with his wife while talking to the reader. Rather than discuss the fireman’s suicide.
Joker’s victims include men, women, children, and even his own henchmen and other villains. In the depicted novel The Joker: Devil’s Advocate , the Joker is reported to have killed more than 2,000 people. For which the death penalty has been awarded thousands of times, despite killing so many people, he is not found guilty every time due to insanity. In the Batman storyline ‘War Crimes’, this continued influence of insanity is actually made possible by his own team of best lawyers. He is then kept in Arkham Asylum, from where he leaves whenever he wants. He even claims that this is just a resting place between his two performances.
Batman is given countless opportunities to kill the Joker, but he relents in the final moments. As an example, in one storyline, Batman threatens to kill the Joker, but realizes that such an act would make him a killer himself. Conversely, the Joker has missed several chances to kill Batman because the Joker defines himself as a conflict with his main enemy. However, after a person shoots the Joker in Batman’s costume, the Joker is very angry at the fact that his old enemy tried to end his life. However, the Joker is sometimes obsessed with heroes who have no problem killing him, such as when he struggles with Punisher, he is horrified when Panisher is about to kill him.
The Joker is famous as Batman’s greatest enemy. While other villains rely on investigative-and-true methods to commit crimes (such as Mr. Freeze’s Freeze Gun or Poison Ivy’s poisonous plant), the Joker has a variety of weapons to use. For example, the flower that he puts on the collar of his coat (at any time) sprinkles highly corrosive acid, poisonous gas, or soda water. In Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker and long ago “Dreadful Birthday, Dear Joker!” ( Batman # 321), or more recently in Detective Comics 866 (June 2010), the Joker has a gun from which the first shot emits a flag with the sound of a “bang”, but is followed by a flag without pressing the trigger. Fires and spears off the target directly ( Return of the JokerJoker gas comes out of the gun in the edited version of). His most recurring weapon is a high-voltage handgun, which he uses to burn his prey when electrocuted, likewise his famous clown poison, which paralyzes either victim. Will go or faint or may even die, depending on the strength of the specific batch. What is common to all versions is that there is always a frenzy of laughter after the effect, as well as a frozen smile. His unpredictable, murderous nature makes him one of the most feared anecdotes in the DC Universe; Villains United and Infinite CrisisIn the short-series, members of the Secret Society of Villains refuse to include the Joker for the same reason. In the short-series Underworld Unleashed , Trickster comments, “When the Mahakhalnayaks want to intimidate each other, they tell stories of the Joker.”
Another clown appeared in DC comics publication Tangent Comics, a publishing series on Alternative Earth. The heroes have the same names (The Flash, Batman, etc.), but their history and powers are vastly different. This Earth is now listed as Earth-9. This Earth Joker is a female protagonist who uses her list of jokes and comic devices to make fun of dictator Superman’s authority. This clown is actually three women: a student Mary Marvell, an entrepreneur Christy Janadu and a journalist Lori Lemaris. Mary is eventually caught by the wicked Superman and is tortured, before killing her, to reveal the names of the two remaining. Lemaris is sent to prison, but Christina’s fate remains unknown. Later, Lemaris is offered the Joker’s legacy again to make Superman look inferior,

The New Earth-2’s Joker is depicted as weak and wheelchair-bound, an old man who, ironically, is unable to laugh without hurting himself due to the life-long effects of deadly chemicals.
