He's the Batman's most implacable foe, a mad criminal genius whose bizarre rampages baffle even the world's greatest detective. But the Joker was not always this way. Before he became the Clown Prince of Crime, before a single, fateful day scarred his face and warped his mind forever, he was just the sort of person the Dark Knight has dedicated his life to protecting - a common man. What happened to transform this average citizen into the greatest evil Gotham City has ever known? Can Batman stop the Joker from dragging Commissioner Gordon and his daughter Barbara into his world of murderous madness? And can these two enemies put a stop to their eternal duel before it's too late for both of them?
