He ended up forgetting about Harley for an integral year while she languished in Arkham waiting for him. When she saw the news coverage about her escape, he lone cared that the Riddler was referred to as “ Gotham ‘s funniest villain ”. He demanded that one of his goons name a funnier supervillain than himself, and when he guessed “ Harley ”, the Joker shot him to end because “ women are n’t fishy ”. At that moment, Harley cleared her throat to get the Joker ‘s attention and criticized him for breaking his promise, lying to her, and leaving her in Arkham for a year. She then declared she was breaking up with him, and although the Joker angrily said she did n’t “ call the shots ”, she made to leave anyhow. Forced to change tactics, the Joker proclaimed it was what he always wanted anyhow, that he prayed she would leave him. He claimed that he would have insisted on breaking up, as it was the lone way “ to keep you safe ”. He shoved Poison Ivy away and lied to Harley about an increase pressure from law enforcement and from Batman, how they were “ hell-bent on destroying everyone I care about ”. He deceptively confirmed Harley ‘s suspicion that he left her in Arkham for her own guard and insisted on them staying separated – unless their sleep together was so knock-down, “ even the menace of death ca n’t keep us apart ”. He claimed he would die for her any day, at which point Harley finally turned around and came second to him with open arms, stunning Ivy .

He was shortly called by the Riddler, who had captured both Harley and Batman, and forced the Joker to choose which of the two to live and which to die. The Joker then began to laugh and claimed he could n’t let “ this punctuation asshole ” get credit for killing Batman, so he chose Batman to live and Harley to die, at which point he ran away with Batman in hot avocation. once he reached guard, he sent a lout to Harley to apologize, literally exploding to make the point. still feeling betrayed, however, Harley redid her outfit ( which the Joker initially appreciated ) and returned to the Joker again to break up with him, claiming that he mistreated her and never loved her. He claimed that was “ folderal ” as his motives were never clear as “ an agent of chaos ”. When she was in-situ, he frustratedly insisted that no one ever breaks up with him, the top villain in Gotham, but Harley declared that she would be replacing him in that role .
Challenged, the Joker called his goons to kill her, saying that she could n’t even leave the room alive unless he allowed it. Although she initially did well with her mallet, the Joker blew it up with a bombard, and she was soon overwhelm. He offered to relent if she submitted, but she rebelliously retorted “ til death do us part ”, so he coolly ordered her death.

— The Joker proves his identity to Bethany
Snapping second to the present, the Joker was appalled at what he became. He refused to help her until she revealed the bomb calorimeter in his read/write head, so he consented. At Bethany ‘s house, he explained everything to Bethany, and although she did n’t initially believe, he proved his cognition of her syndicate. She wanted to know if anything they had was real, and although the Joker did enjoy his time with her, he gratingly rebukes her, saying, “ I ‘m the fucking joker ! I mean, come on ! I mean, badly. ” angry, Bethany threw the script over their heads – into the waiting hands of a Parademon. While searching for the book, Harley blamed him for their predicament of mistreating his girlfriend. This gets the joker to thinking about his kinship, how much he actually enjoyed it, that it was the most meet kinship of his biography. Harley insulted him, therefore he fired back that he could n’t believe she was ever a therapist and that he was n’t sentimental with her because she came to him when he was a supervillain – Bethany came to him when he was no one. Continuing to needle Harley, he says she “ pummel ” her relationship with Ivy, making her angry .
- ❝ Bethany and I used to cuddle just like that. God, we could just sit on the couch and talk about nothing for hours. We just got each other. She always had my back. … Good God! That’s true love. ❞

They finally come upon the ledger beside two cuddling Parademons, causing him to ruminate on how he and Bethany once cuddled. In reply, Harley insists that he not give up on Bethany, that he try to restore their relationship. As he considered this, one of the Parademons suddenly belched forth a crowd of acid that melted the side off the Parademon he was cuddling, prompting joker to say “ that is foul ”. As they prepared to leave, a bunch together of Parademons saw them, so the Joker ran to a dead end and then turned to fight them off with a crowbar. together they slew dozens of them, but began to tire out. fortunately, they were saved by the arrival of Batman, who captured them both. Batman assumed them to be working together and for Doctor Psycho, so the Joker insulted Batman ‘s detective skills for the error. Harley explained their true intent to Batman, but the Joker abruptly realized they had the wrong script from Bethany ‘s house. They had to go back, and the Joker had to explain his relationship to Batman along the way, besides revealing Harley ‘s bungled relationship with Poison Ivy in the process .

As with other iterations of the Joker, the Joker in Harley Quinn talks about the atrocious things he does with a blasé demeanor, treats violence as a joke, manipulates Harley, is incredibly exultant, treats his own minions like they ‘re disposable ( if he does n’t outright kill them himself for petty reasons ), is erratically crimson, bullies his own colleagues, and shows no compunction for anything he does. In “ The Final Joke “, both Batman and Harley describe him as a “ sociopathic narcissist ” with a chemical asymmetry in his parasympathetic skittish organization. His pride frequently leads him to try to sabotage Harley Quinn, unable to accept her means or independence and leads him to ruthlessly betray her after deceiving her into think that she had regained his affections .
- ❝ Look, lots of dads are serial killers. I’m not gonna change who I am, I just got a better reason to kill; I am in love! ❞
-  — The Joker
Despite all this, Joker admitted that he actually did love Harley but due to his belief that love was a helplessness, he wanted to get rid of her. Realizing that killing her would make her a afflictive memory that would hurt him for the rest of his life, he settled for trying to make Harley forget who she was alternatively. After having his own memory erased, Joker ‘s view on love changed dramatically when he fell in love with Bethany. Spending six months as a “ loser stepdad ” softened him and even once he regained his memory, he decided that his relationship with Bethany could be a great thing. however, he besides told Harley that he still intended to be a serial killer, except now his motivation to continue killing was that he was in love. He had besides apparently changed his view on Harley, nobelium longer feeling the want to dispose of her and evening encouraging her to seek out her own beloved with Poison Ivy .

The Eat. Bang! Kill. Tour
- As a homage to Heath Ledger’s Joker, references to the 2008 movie, The Dark Knight, can be seen.
- He claimed himself to be an “agent of chaos,” a title to which Ledger’s Joker also claims himself to be.
- His quote “Do you want to know how I got these emotional scars?” was also a homage to Ledger’s famous quote minus ’emotional.’
- Joker’s previous inmate look as seen in “All the Best Inmates Have Daddy Issues” is likely based on that of Ledger’s ragged hairstyle and deteriorating paint.
- In “A Fight Worth Fighting For,” after Harley pushed Joker into the same vat of acid, his emergence from the vat was a reference to his origin story in The Killing Joke.
- According to Harley, Joker always stole her makeup, mainly her lipstick, noting that despite being able to commit murders he was too afraid to buy makeup on his own.
