BATMAN SAVES JOKER’S SWORN ENEMIES ON THE CLOWN PRINCE OF CRIME’S BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION

A crowd gathers at the Harlequin Baking Company. As the crowd congregates and sits down, Joker gasses them with Joker Venom. Lights go out. Then, Joker appears with his captives on stage. Each is tied to an incendiary candle on a cake. Once Joker presses the detonator in front of him, each “will burn brightly”, Joker will make a wish then blow them up.

Batman arrives and surrenders to the Joker in exchange for the captives’ lives. Joker says he lied, ties Batman to an incendiary candle. However, Batman ejects himself by pressing a button since he rigged his candles incendiary jets, unties himself and throws his batarangs at the captives’ ropes. Meanwhile, Joker presses the detonator. The captives are saved in time. Robin goes after Joker’s henchmen. Batman goes after Joker who escapes.

BATMAN DUELS WITH JOKER ON A GETAWAY BOAT

As Batman is in pursuit, Joker is headed for the docks. Joker boards his getaway boat while Batman uses the boat’s harness rope to jet-ski holding up to the boat as it speeds on the waters. Batman finally boards the boat. Batman avoids the Joker’s squirting flower, takes him down only to be met with a flying kick.

With the Joker no longer helming the wheel, the boat is out of control, headed for the shoals. Batman attempts to convince Joker to abandon ship, only to fall into the waters tricked by Joker’s “phony-hand-up-the-sleeve gag.”1 The duel ends up in an explosion. Batman survives only to hope with Robin and Commissioner Gordon that it is the last of the Joker.

In 'Batman' (1980) #321, at the end of his duel on the runaway boat with Batman, Joker is presumed dead.
