"When the innocent can laugh in the face of the evil and terrifying, they will no longer hold any power over them"
The Jokester is a heroic version of The Joker.
The Jokester was abused as a child by his father, even though exactly what happened is a mystery. To prevent himself from going mad, he decided to use his abuse to motivate himself to become an optimist, and laugh in the face of the horrible.
At some point in his teenaged years, he was taken to an ophanage, and his father was sent to prison after his mother confessed to the police about the abuse. He realized that things can be just if someone were to just speak up. He decided that when he was older, he would become the defender of the innocent. He also met Rachel at this time. Later, he left the orphanage in order to make a living for himself.
The Jokester took chemistry and self-denfense classes to train himself. Using the materials he could find, he created his gas gun and put on his suit and makeup. It was time to bring justice to the streets.
First Day as a Hero
The Jokester decided to start his career of heroism by taking down a man working for Carmine Falcone. Before he could stop the man, however, Owlman attacked the criminal, breaking both his arms. The Jokester tried to stop him, but he had his nose broken, and watched as Owlman snapped the man's neck. The Jokester had failed.
After this, The Jokester became depressed, and gave up his career as a hero. He went back to the orphanage to talk to Rachel.
