The Joker src

The Joker was a violent maniac operating in Gotham City and the arch-nemesis of Batman.

At some point the Joker was apprehended and imprisoned at Arkham Asylum. Batman and Commissioner Gordon passed the Joker's prison cell when they went to interrogate Killer Croc at the psychiatric hospital. When a bolt of lightning flashed through the night, the super-villain started laughing hysterically.[1]

He eventually succeeded in escaping Arkham Asylum and was reunited with his girlfriend and assistant Harley Quinn. However, the Joker was soon abducted by Hush, a mysterious new villain in Gotham who then blackmailed Harley into working for him in exchange for the life of her puddin.[2]
