26 Dec Jack “The Joker” Napier: Gangster

Jack Napier died from a gruesome fall on the night of June 23, 1989.  The deformed mad man known as the Joker had been terrorizing the city during its annual parade but was stopped by the vigilante known as Batman.  This wasn’t the Joker’s first run in with The Batman — he suffered a previous accident that deformed his face at Axis Chemicals Plant Headquarters.  Napier lost his balance and fell into a vat of toxic waste.  Although Batman caught Napier’s arm and attempted to pull him back up to safety, Napier’s leather glove slipped through Batman’s glove and Mr. Napier plummeted into the chemical vat below which permanently bleached his skin.

The fall that led to his death however was as he we was trying to escape in an helicopter.  The Batman used a grappling hook which tied to Joker’s ankles causing him to lose control and plunge to his death.  The Joker died ironically with smile on his face.
