Joker’s Most Evil Acts?

For 80 years, The Joker has towered as the Clown Prince of Crime in Gotham. In that time, we’ve seen him form many plots and schemes, as well as commit endless crimes. So many, in fact, that there are certainly far, far more crimes than there are years he’s existed in DC canon.

And now, we’re going to celebrate 80 long years of diabolical acts by counting down 80 of his worst deeds. Have a terrible crime the Joke committed? Leave it below!

Well, there was that one time he tried to trademark the concept of fish, and threatened the life of every copyright lawyer who wouldn’t comply. That was a high watermark in my book.

I’d say that tricking Superman into killing Lois and their unborn child along w/ rigging a nuclear bomb to destroy Metropolis when her heartbeat stops has to be up there among the most evil things any DC villain has ever done

Batman: The Dark Knight Returns #3

This ranks up near the top for me- this was an innocent group of boyscouts out for a night of fun, who were unfortunate enough to cross paths with the Joker…

@TheBatmanofNML Oh 100%- No Man’s Land was fantastic. You can feel it’s influence on The Dark Knight Rises, Arkham City, and season 2 of Harley Quinn.

It was bad enough that they killed as many as they did, but here the Joker rubs salt in the open wound with ‘trick coffins’ for the children. And the thought of it makes him laugh…

Most messed up has to be when he made the Bat-Fam think that he cut their faces off. That has to be one of the most insane things I’ve ever seen.
Don’t get me started on the Killing Joke though. That was just evil.

This is… kind of morbid for a celebratory topic, don’t you think?

When he killed Gordon’s second wife in front of a bunch of babies.

I have to admit, something about forcing him to watch his adopted son’s torture is especially twisted. :fearful:

Joker kills one of his loyal henchmen, then kills the rest of them at the funeral. The description of what it feels like to inhale Joker venom is haunting…
