She steals parts to build bombs and terrorize factories, poisons CEOs and land developers, and spreads invasive plant life across the city.

Little is known about his past, but it's theorized by most that he has a deep depressive disorder that he combats with his comedic persona. What Gotham knows for sure though is that he is incapable of taking anything he does seriously, totally unaffected by the plight of his victims or even the danger he puts his own life in. Batman personally theorizes that he commits his crimes because he's on an elaborate quest to kill himself in the loudest, most attention grabbing way possible. He's only ever captured by police once, after Rupert Thorne has his brother, Bradford Thorne, surgically deform The Joker's mouth into a smile as a poetic means of revenge. The Joker has a particularly extreme breakdown after this as a result from not only the trauma to his face, but the sedatives he was under, bringing his dark past back from the annals of his twisted, distorted memory. This state of mania results in him finally being captured by Batman, who turns him in to the police. Because of his incomprehensible state, he's quickly detained at Arkham Asylum. He later escapes with the help of Harley Quinn and becomes more ambitious than ever, working his way up to the very top of Gotham's crime syndicate.
