The Joker - Comics
All it takes is one bad day to reduce the sanest man alive to lunacy. That's how far the world is from where I am. Just one bad day. You had a bad day once. Am I right? I know I am. I can tell. You had a bad day and everything changed. Why else would you dress up like a flying rat? You had a bad day, and it drove you as crazy as everybody else... Only you won't admit it!
~ Joker to Batman

Emperor Joker render
A guy turns his back for thirteen seconds so he can figure out an atypical way of obliterating every molecule of existence--

--and his crew goes native on him!

Which part of "Joker is god" don't you mouth-breathers understand?! You are nothing! I am everything!

I win!

~ Emperor Joker

Summary

Having a mysterious yet tragic backstory, the Joker is the insane arch enemy of Batman. He's a crime lord & terrorist who believes that nothing matters. Unable to feel love for others, the Joker obsesses over the important things he deals with -- particularly Batman, whom the Joker makes his life miserable. Posing as a great actor, a charismatic person or leader, the Joker has a great talent manipulating others for his own needs or out of sheer sadism. He claims that he wants to make others see his point of view about life, but, like all nihilists, the fact that he is still alive alongside his extreme narcissism demonstrate his hypocrisy.

His most prominent weapon is his Joker venom, a deadly poison that infects his victims with a ghoulish rictus grin as they die while laughing uncontrollably

Intelligence He is an insane genius. He is almost as dangerous as Batman, captured the entire Bat family and is implied to have deduced Batman's identity in the Death of the Family story arc. He has also been shown to be a terrifyingly skilled chemist, cooking up innumerable variations of his trademark Joker Toxin (such as lacing a strain with Hahnium just so that the formula would be full of "HaHaHaHaHa...")

Weaknesses: Joker has human weaknesses (however is immune to his own gas and various poisons), extreme insanity (although said psyche is so warped even avatars of the spirit of Vengeance cannot deal with it lightly and can even be an asset by making him unpredictable, he is speculated by Martian Manhunter to be a form of super-insanity as even he was unable to render Joker sane for more than a few minutes) | Didn't take anything too serious, including using his power in a way that would have kill him and the fact that he was losing his power. Despite having 99% of Mister Mxyzptlk's powers, Joker was unable to master all of it; Repeatedly showed being rather incompetent with his abilities, with enough beliefs from his victims being able to undo his alterations in reality and harm on others. Gave his enemies atrocious advantages (which may or may not be on purpose) such as don't attack them at their weakest, reviving them after killing them and writing them in a way that leads to his own defeat through simple means. His mental state slowly leads to either his own defeat or the destruction of everything, including himself, which is soon to happen at the peak of his power
