The Joker is an infamously extreme and formidable psychopathic crime lord from Gotham City , being at the very top of the city's criminal underworld, greatly feared by all other crime bosses and criminals. Though he is devoid of empathy or pity for anybody taking part in his wicked schemes either by intimidation or fraud, the Joker used to adore his on-and-off girlfriend and partner-in-crime Harley Quinn , doing his utmost to rescue her from the Suicide Squad and clutches of Amanda Waller , with eventual success. For unknown reasons, he later broke up with Harley. The Joker is also the longtime archenemy of Batman , whom he considers to be his own favorite "joke" and the murderer of the latter's protege, Robin , along with Harley Quinn. Nothing, including his real name, is known about the Joker's past before the start of his supervillain career, though it can be surmised that he was most likely born and grew up somewhere around Gotham City , New Jersey and was born before Batman. It is known, however, that at one point, he fell into a boiling vat of toxic waste during a botched robbery at ACE Chemicals , permanently bleaching his skin chalk-white, turning his hair bright green and staining his lips bright red.
