The Joker got his ass beat by Hush, then ran off to recuperate with some diseased midgets, who both died. Then he trained a bunch of birds and came back to whup ass on Hush again before getting sidetracked into dealing the not so dead Jason"Redbird" Todd. They both blew up at the exact same moment Infinite Crisis was jumping forward one year. Then he got shot in the face by a Batman impostor. point blank. with a real gun (as real as comic book guns can be anyway).
Jack "Joker" Riepan is NOT having a good resurgence in the funny books.
