Joker Car: A Brief History of The Jokermobile

Joker Car

Joker is probably one of the best villains to exist in comic book history. Joker is most notably known for making explosive devices and razor-sharp Joker playing cards. His signature weapon is the Joker toxin. He delivers this toxin in the form of a gas and is extremely lethal. His arsenal is full of weapons that have the ability to destroy cities and kill millions. But this arsenal of The Joker lacks a decent car fit for a super-villain.

The Joker toxin is so lethal that anybody who is exposed to this toxin experiences spasms of uncontrollable laughter and dies within minutes of exposure. Anybody who dies after being exposed to the Joker Toxin has a grotesque grinning expression called “Risus Sardonicus” due to spasms of the facial muscles. Making them look like The Joker.
