Joker is a major villain in LEGO Batman: The Videogame, LEGO Batman 2: DC Superheroes and archenemy of Batman. However, he aids the Justice League in LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham. He is a playable character in LEGO DC Super-Villains. He also appears in LEGO Dimensions.


The Joker's past is shrouded in mystery, with no one really knowing who he was or how he became the Joker. One origin Joker claims to have had is that he was once a former chemical engineer turned failed comedian, who posed as The Red Hood during a failed heist to support his pregnant wife, Jeannie. When trying to escape Batman, Jack fell into a vat of toxins which turned his hair green, bleached his skin white, stained his lips red, and stretched them out into an everlasting smile; it gave him the appearance of a crazed clown. Driven insane by this reflection and the death of Jeannie, he renamed himself The Joker.
