An insanely homicidal super-villain, the Joker’s white skin, green hair, and blood-red lips belie the chaotic nature underlying his cartoonish appearance. The self-styled Clown Prince of Crime has no superpowers, beyond a capacity for incredible violence and a skill at creating deadly mayhem. He frequently concocts elaborate schemes to entrap his arch nemesis, Batman.

Attributes:

Unrepentant homicidal maniac, albeit without a precise psychological diagnosis

Surprisingly strong hand-to-hand combatant

His past is unknown; conflicting, unconfirmed reports state that he was a failed comedian, a petty thief, and a broken family man

Employs various deadly weapons, often based on party-gag items

Frequently uses a toxin that stretches victim’s face into a Joker-like grin and causes death
