The Joker was forcefully dropped into the pit by Owlman. He challenged Owlman's authority through criminal acts against him and the corrupt city police. The man pretended to be crazy to justify his acts and although he seemed unconcerned about the consequences this could bring, he was emotionally hurt by all innocent deaths that he caused.
Talon decided to try to capture the Joker, to show his superiority to Owlman. The Joker defeats and kills him, mutilates his body and sends it in gift boxes to Owlman. This is a devastating blow to the tyrant of Gotham, who is shocked to witness the corpse of whom he considered his brother. Joker goes on the offensive and tries to kill his nemesis but is stopped by the Outsider, who shoots him in the right hand, shattering it. The Joker poisons Pennyworth as revenge, but fails to kill him. Owlman, furious at what the Joker has done to his two biggest allies, throws him to the propellers of a moving helicopter killing him instantly.
When the Darkest Knight was defeated and the Multiverse was remade into an Omniverse by The Hands, Earth 3 was recreated with an altered history. In this new history, he was known as the Jester and was one of the many "fallen heroes" of Gotham killed by Owlman. Before his death he partnered with Dr. Harleen Quinzel, aka Red Hood.
