Cosmic Awareness - Post Joker's chemical submergence his mind was warped to inconceivable levels. Joker believes he has been freed of sanity but not to the point of insanity, but instead that he is SO sane that he only appears insane to others beneath his level of awareness - which he calls Hyper Sanity. This has made Joker aware of cosmic beings and events that he otherwise should not know of, as well as other ideas such as living in a comic book.
Genius Intellect - Whether because of his chemical bath or not, Joker has employed a wide range of self-invented weaponry as well as custom designed chemical agents to enact his particular brand of comedy-themed terrorism.
Manipulative - Joker has great insight into the human psyche and often uses those skills to wrest control of another's mind and actions, bending them to his own sick and twisted will.
Marksman - Commonly using a revolver, Joker has never missed a target. This level of keen target-hitting also translate to knives, darts, and also playing cards.
Menacing - Just the name Joker can reduce grown men to bawling heaps. His presence and appearance has caused people to freeze in utter terror. He can also change and adapt his personality on the fly, allowing him to sell impersonations, disguises, and lies flawlessly.
Peculiar Physiology - Joker's brain chemistry and overall DNA as a whole have been radically changed by the chemicals at ACE that he was inadvertently knocked into. So while he is not superhuman, the chemicals Joker was plunged into certainly made him inhuman, resulting in a number of enhancements.
- He is immune to poison and toxins (this includes Ivy's poisons and Scarecrow's Fear Toxin)
- He has an abnormally high pain threshold, possibly not feeling pain at all
- He seems to have accelerated healing as well as decelerated aging
- His blood is tainted and poisonous to those who might ingest it or otherwise be exposed to it
Joker Venom - A master chemist, Joker created Joker Venom as a means of a calling card. The chemical compound forces a person's face to contort and rigor into a smile as well as laugh uncontrollably, until the venom eventually kills them.
Joy Buzzer - A high-voltage version of the novelty toy that can hospitalize or kill a person.
Joker Teeth - More gag weaponry! Joker teeth come in a variety of fashions: harmless gag teeth, explosive chattering teeth, homing explosive Joker teeth, razor sharp teeth....that also explode, etc.
Razor Sharp Playing Cards - They're playing cards, that are razor sharp.
Instability - Joker's mind is twisted and broken, he craves destruction and impulsive anarchy. When he doesn't get those things he becomes a much less effective mess and has even gone catatonic when left without a humorous and devastating gag to pull.
Love/Obsession - Joker feels completed by Batman, his greatest adversary and bestest friend. He won't let others kill Batman without his say so because he doesn't want their game to end. He also possibly knows Batman's identity but won't tell and won't let others expose him because that would take all the fun out of it. In times where Batman has gone mission or became presumed dead Joker always becomes inactive, feeling his role as Clown Prince of Crime is pointless without a Dark Knight to go up against.
Narcissist - Joker needs an audience. He needs people to pay him attention. Whether it's the Harley's of the world who love him, the Batsy's of the world that want to stop him, the Barbara Gordon's of the world who fear him, or the Jason Todd's of the world who have been killed by him. He must be the object of someone's fixation, for any reason. He. CANNOT. BE. IGNORED!
Joker wasn't born a privileged boy sucking at the rich and powerful teat of Mama and Papa Moneybags, nor was he sent from a doomed planet to rally hope and goodwill to all of mankind, and he for sure wasn't molded from clay on an island of bikini-armor wearing warrior lesbians. The Joker was created after one too many bad days. He was canned at his dead end job, his baby mama who he really loved didn't want to marry him, his dream job of being a comedian was dashed upon discovery that he actually wasn't funny in the slightest. To get some much needed cash, and just as much to feel like a man again, the man who would become Joker decided to aid a bunch of thieves in breaking into his old job and robbing them blind. He was dressed up as the notorious criminal Red Hood when they broke into Ace Chemical, a ploy thought up by the other burglars to make him to the fall guy when the Batman showed. Batman of course did show and after a run in with "Red Hood", the latter was accidentally knocked into a vat of criminals.
All of that may be true, or it could all be completely made up. Doesn't matter, it isn't really important. The only important bit and 100% true part is that an ordinary man having a bad day went into a vat of chemicals and the Joker came out.
The Joker would go on to commit many a heinous crimes; poisoning the water supply, getting revenge on Gotham for laughing at his boner, turning his psychiatrist into a psychopathic henchwench, etc. This all gained Joker the burning ire of Batman and Gotham Commissioner Jim Gordon alike, something that sparked a gruesome idea in the Clown Prince of Crime.
Joker sat out to break a man and to prove a point. He was seen as an absolute evil in the universe but to the Joker there simply is action or inaction, no such thing as good or evil, and to illustrate his point he knew his brand of living was only one bad day away. He was going to take Gotham's shining example of a "good" man and bend him until he broke. Jim Gordon's daughter was targeted, shot and crippled in her own home by the Joker and the first step in breaking Jim was complete.
For his next trick Joker kidnapped Gordon and brought him to an old rundown amusement park where the man was stripped nude and forced to look on enlarged photos of his brutalized daughter. The trauma and turmoil was working handsomely, Gordon even wanted to retaliate and kill Joker in cold blood...until Batman interfered. The Dark Knight was able to subdue Joker and have him remanded to Arkham.
That same year Joker would strike a blow to the Dark Knight once more (unbeknownst to the Joker, Barbara Gordon was actually Batgirl so her crippling had deeply impacted Gordon and Batman alike). What began as a ploy to gain and sell nuclear weaponry brings Joker to Lebanon, where he was followed by Batman and Robin, ends with two deaths. While investigating Joker, Batman and Robin learned of a woman being blackmailed to give Joker medical supplies to sell on the black market as well as a warehouse where he stockpiled Joker Venom for the sole purpose of detonating to kill thousands. Along the way Batman and Robin learned that the woman being blackmailed was Robin's mother. When Jason Todd went to rescue the woman from the evil Joker's clutches, she turned on the young Boy Wonder and handed him over to Joker, who then repaid the sidekick's good deed by savagely beating him within an inch of his life with a crowbar.
While Batman raced to save both Jason and his mother, Joker tied the two up and left them in the warehouse that was set to be exploderized. Jason, completing his character arc, stayed with his evil-doer mother and even attempted to shield her as the explosives in the warehouse detonated, killing them both in vaporizing fashion. Joker then became a diplomat and claimed diplomatic immunity when he returned to Gotham so that Batsy couldn't lay a finger on him.
Riding his Diplomatic Immunity Joker tried to enact genocide at the United Nations but was thwarted by Batman and Superman. His get away via helicopter did not go off as planned and Joker crashed into the ocean, though no body was recovered.
After returning and blowing up more buildings and taking more hostages, y'know taking a break from directly terrorizing Jim Gordon and Batman, Joker came right back around to do some more damage to the Gordon and Bat-families. During the No Man's Land fiasco, when the US exiled the city like an ugly stepchild, Joker essentially disappeared from the map (thanks to Batman being missing mostly). He was in Arkham Asylum, meeting one Harleen Frances Quinzel. The woman was little more than a groupie to Joker, though useful in getting him out of the Asylum when he needed. His inactivity on the Gotham crime stage ended when Joker approached Penguin about recouping some lost goods in the events of Gotham's cataclysmic earthquake, this meeting was the same time that Joker would be introduced to the newly dubbed Harley Quinn. She fell for him and after days of her pestering he fell for her, which was why Joker had to get rid of her.
Joker trying to off Harley only set her on a path to revenge. Juiced up on Poison Ivy's anti-poison concoction that gave the former psychiatrist added strength and agility, Harley hunted down Joker and almost did him in. To stop Harley Joker had to do the unthinkable, he apologized!
After dealing with Harleen and taking her on as his partner and lover, Joker was ready to get back to business. He stepped back onto the scene in a big way, by dressing dozens of GCPD cops up as himself and fueling one of their own into a Joker-hating rage vendetta to snipe all of them. Joker then moved on to the next step in his resurgence plan, in which he accosted a hospital building full of newborns. There he encountered Detective Sarah Gordon, Jimbo's second wife. The woman had the Clown dead to rights, but there was still the matter of infants at his mercy. Pointing a gun at Sarah, Joker instructed her not to move or he would kill her. He then threw one of the infants at the detective which she instinctively caught. Joker kept his word. When Jim Gordon found out his wife's fate he shot Joker in a the knee causing the pale man to shout that he may never walk again, realizing the irony Joker began to laugh uncontrollably.
Joker then went on to become a reality bending Emperor, got lied to about having a malignant tumor, attempted to kill Harley, attempted to impregnate Harley, got killed, got revived by his bestie Bats, helped an idiot in mummy bandages fake his death, attempted to kill Harley, got beaten mercilessly by a resurrected Jason Todd, murdered a Lex Luthor from another Earth, got deported to a Hell Planet, escaped said Hell Planet, attempted to kill Harley, gave Batman a mental breakdown, got into a fender bender with a Robin driven Batmobile, got his face cut off, attempted to kill Harley, got his face back, had an attempt on his life by Harley, etc.
Joker is now just waiting for the next fun idea to hit him to bring pain and suffering, and laughter, to the city of Gotham.
"Jacky Jacky Jacky. Can I call you Jacky?" Joker stopped his pacing to turn, one hand on his hip and other other gesturing vaguely in the air, to look at the man he held tied to a chair.
"My name's Chad."
"Hoohoohahahaha! You're a riot, Jacky. A riot!"
The Clown in purple slapped his knee before once again resuming his pacing.
"Anyway, you're probably wondering why I have you here tonight."
"Cuz you're a psycho?"
"Thank you, but no! I have you here because someone's been dippin' there little fingies in my cookie batter for a taste of what's not theirs."
Joker spun on his heel to face
"I don't know what you're talking about."
"I apologize, maybe the euphemisms were a bit...halfbaked! Hahahehoo!" Joker cackled as his smile stretched wider and wider. His face then dropped, his eyes narrowing dangerously on the bound and helpless man.
"I place my assets in a very specific storage lot, Jacky. You are the manager of said storage lot, Jackattack; the only other person besides moi who has access to it, Apple Jacks! You don't touch other people's assets without permission, Wacko-Jacko. It's called consent, Jack-daddy!"
Joker had gotten closer and closer with each name drop of his victim until he was practically in the man's face foaming at the mouth.
"Well....anything to say for yourself, Mister?"
There was a long pause as Joker stared down his long white nose at the sweating face of a man who was either a few syllables shy of death, or one sentence away from freedom.
"M-m-my.....name is Chad?"
In a blur of purple from the fabric of Joker's suit a knife was plunged into the storage manager's right thigh, he howled for a short second before Joker clamped his hand over the man's agape mouth.
"The joke's only funny once!" Joker roared as he released his knife embedded in Jack and dug inside his suit jacket with one fluid motion. He drew a long barreled revolved and fired a single shot.
Just then a clown mask wearing lackey shuffled into the room, "uh, boss?"
Joker sighed, running his free hand through his green tresses before acknowledging his henchman. "What is it?"
"The rest of the guys wanted me to ask...was it Mile 4 Storage or Smiles For Storage?"
The henchman's eyes then trailed down to the guy Joker was standing over. The guy he and the other goons had grabbed up from his office and delivered to their boss. The guy laying in a pool of blood.
"Uh, know what? It's fine, it's probably fine, yeah it's fine."
Joker turned to look at the idiot in the doorway with an incredulous look. He shook his head as he stashed the revolver back into his jacket. Joker made long strides to the goon and went into a fit of giggling.
"Doesn't matter, either way I feel so much better now. Say, why don't you get rid of ol' Chaddy and then you, me, and the rest of the gang'll hit a Waffle House. I'm in the mood for something sweet and sticky in a filthy environment. Haahaahehooo!"
