Joker was Batman's archnemesis and outlived his original adversary. It didn't stop him, and he continued to plague Huntress for some time.

The Earth-2 Joker continued his personal battle against the original Batman's successors and supporters, most notably Robin and Huntress of his source Earth. It was his own determination to continue the war with Wayne and his successors that gave him the drive to go on living for so many years, despite most of his contemporaries dying of old age like the Earth-2 Riddler and Two-Face. Growing more decrepit and feeble in his advanced age, he became unable to keep the fight going himself, leading him to decide to recreate Two-Face by destroying the face of the current District Attorney of Gotham City, Harry Simms.

Helena Wayne decided, upon the deformation of Harry Simms, to kill Joker and end the war against her family for good. Teaming up with Kara Zor-L of Earth-Two/New Earth, Helena went out to directly kill the Joker at his base of operations. Though unintended, Helena got her wish as the Joker's attack on her with his lethal joy-buzzer backfired against Kara's superhuman endurance, electrocuting him in the process.

In the end, as the Joker of a certain alternate future reality (The Dark Knight Returns) did with an alternate version of her father, the Earth-2 Joker succeeded in getting the Huntress to make the decision to cross the moral line into attempted murder, enjoying his demise as a result.
