He is one of the iconic characters with over 60 years of history. And he has several nicknames. Alright, without any further ado, we bring you five things DC would never want you to know about Joker.

He always returns with no explanation that DC don’t want you to know.

Being a psychotic and murderous villain of the Gotham City, The Joker was engaged in several japes and pranks in the Silver Age, handling Batman and Robin easily rather thank killing the innocents of Gotham City. And there were instances where he was super funny in The Dark Knight when Heath Ledger was the Joker.
3. He had his own utility belt

The former member of Suicide Squad, Duela Dent appeared in New 52, who worshiped him and stayed in sewers. He followed the Joker to such a degree that she sewed Joker’s missing face over her own face.
5. Joker loves Batman
Now you understand why he is running after Batman? Well, Joker and Batman are different sides of a single coin carried by their own tragedies. It is not a sexual love or romantic one, but he is kind of obsessed with Batman.
