I got permission from Jester of chaos to make this proposal.
Well well well, today might be a better proposal I have published on this wiki right now. Anyways, I am now making my second Joker PE Proposal here but this time, it's a formality post rather than the actual proposal since the Arkhamverse Joker's lock was added by a user who is not an admin if you are wondering. If anyone did not know about this or not read my favorite villain's channel I am a massive superhero fan so it's not hard to see me making some superhero proposals here.
Anyways, this will be my tenth proposal here on this wiki as of now, so enough with the chit-chat. Without further to do, let's get started!
What's the Works?
The DC Animated Universe is produced by Bruce Timm and Paul Dini where it is a collection of DC animated movies and shows produced by them.

It's the Joker. What do you expect from a guy like him? He does not give a shit for his gang and Harley since he consistently abuses them and kills them for laughs, commits crimes for the evulz, and has no tragic backstory, unlike most villains. But while he may have comedic moments, they barely distressed from his horrific crimes he committed and lastly, he is just a despicable monster who loves causing chaos either way.
Hell even his henchman are scared of him, Poison Ivy hated him, and his own voice actor felt uncomfortable playing as him because of his horrific crimes in his final appearance in Batman Beyond film which really says a lot about him if you think about it.
I don't think this needs a long explanation.
He may just be a normal human with an organization but he still left a very big impact in the DC animated universe. The standards of the franchise are very high but in my eyes, I believe Joker still stands out. I don't think it's even fair to compare him to other villains who have god abilities such as Granny Goodness or even Darkseid. As a matter of fact, I am not letting this become the new Armin Zola proposal incident because of this, so please don't start this war.
Anyway, he is honestly one of the evilest villains in the universe I have seen right now. He may start out generic but as his arc continues, he starts to get even worse until Batman Beyond. As I said, he may be just a normal human but he made a very big impact in the story if you think about it. Let's look at how he stands out like the rest of the villains. He murders countless people with his Joker venom, murdered Andrea Beaumont’s making him the one responsible for Andrea becoming a villain, used his venom gas on making an entire town crazy, plans on turning Catwoman into meat after capturing her, poisoned the fish into Joker fishes causing many people getting affected by it, attempts to nuke Gotham while not caring if the Arkham prisoners are in there or not, blew up many buildings in Metropolis killing so many people, made a reality game where the justice ledge has to find a bomb or else they will explode in the city and even used Ace to drive 70 million everyone (including his crew) insane not caring what would happen to them or die until Batman finally stops him.
They may not look much, but by the time Batman beyond came I say he passes the standard since his crimes became very horrific in the film. He tortured Tim into both giving information and turning him insane for three weeks, planted a chip on his neck to continue his atrocities in his body, and even pushed him into killing his own mentor Batman. This act was so horrible that Batman actually tries to kill him for what he did to Tim and if that's not enough, his actions not just broke apart the bat family, but it took a year for Tim to even recover from his insanity leaving a very big impact even after he may seem gone. In his final act, he kills his own goon for turning on him, almost drives Bruce insane who is an elderly at the time while also wounding Ace who is just a dog, killing hundreds of people with buildings in a big city, and finally blow up the hospital where Dana is recovering, Mary McGinnis' residence and Wayne Manor with a satellite laser just to spite Terry but when that fails, he tries to kill terry one last time by choking him. So with that out of the way, I think despite the standards of the series, I still think the Joker stands out because of how horrific and vile his actions are.
Easy yes for the final Joker in the Formality post. Oh, man. I really just did two joker proposals in this wiki which I really should be proud about.
