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 to keep the war going despite the main villains dying of old age such as the Earth-2 Riddler and Two-Face. Unable to keep the fight going himself, he decided to recreate Two Face by destroying the face of the current District Attorney of Gotham City Harry Simms, hoping to recreate Two-Face.

Helena Wayne decided upon the deformation of Harry Simms to kill Joker and end his desire to keep the war going despite his own failing health. Teaming up with Kara-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-L's superhuman endurance and electrocuted him.

Though like the Joker of the alternate future reality (The Dark Knight Returns), the Earth-2 Joker succeeded in getting the heroine to make the decision to cross the line regarding being willing to kill and actually enjoy his death, despite the fact that the Huntress did not actually do the deed that killed him.
