Death of the Family | Comics

Notoriously psychotic Gotham City criminal, The Joker was taken to Arkham Asylum for criminally insane after being captured by Batman where he got his face carved out by the psychotic villain known as Dollmaker and pinned his face to the wall (Faces of Death). He made a surprising comeback after a year to execute his new twisted plot of mayhem and returns to the scene.

He collects his own face from the police station and kills the all officers present there, leaving only Jim Gordon as a witness for his vicious murderous rampage. After killing John Claridge, the son of his first recorded victim on live television by shooting him in the head, he issues a threat to kill Mayor Hady by midnight and even though Batman’s intervention, he kills all but Hady with his signature Joker venom.

The Joker approaches Catwoman to suggest her of becoming an arch-enemy for him instead of being a love interest but she refused him anyway. Next, the maniac visits his girlfriend Harley Quinn at Suicide Squad member Deadshot’s funeral and abducts her. The clues left by him led Batman to his birth place; ACE Chemical Plant, where a frightened Harley Quinn expresses her concern about his return.

Upon returning home, Bruce realizes that his trusty butler Alfred Pennyworth is also abducted by the maniac. To their horror, the sidekicks realize that Joker knows their true identities and pose a major threat to all of them. Apart from haunting Batgirl and Nightwing, he also tormented the group of Red Hood and the Outlaws as well as the young heroes of Teen Titans.

The Joker – Death of the Family (Softcover)

The Joker – Death of the Family (Hardcover)

After the “Court of the Owls” storyline, followed by The New 52 epic “Night of the Owls” crossover event, the current sensation in Batman franchise, writer Scott Snyder (American Vampire, The Wake) and artist Greg Capullo (Haunt, Spawn) brought up the greatest new age Joker story, Death of the Family from DC Comics in 2012. Joker's portrayal in this New 52 timeline seems even greater than of Heath Ledger as Joker in the movie The Dark Knight (2008).
