Gaslight Joker Bio:

Universe of Origin: Gaslight

The prosperous Age of Invention's most infamous serial killer, Gaslight Joker butchers his opponents with bloody cleaver and swarms of starving rats.

Word traveled through Gotham of a "Laughing Butcher" who, with a joke and smile, led unsuspecting street dwellers beneath his shop to feed his pet rats. Batman heard these tales and sought this butcher out. The butcher fled and, in his flight, plummeted into a vat of chemicals. His face bleached and frozen into a mad mocking grin, he was transformed into "the Joker".

Gaslight Joker wades into fights with sweeping strikes of cleaver and ham, often followed by his “pets,” a ravenous swarm of starving rats.
