Arkham City Bio
The self-styled Clown prince of Crime has no superpowers beyond a capacity for incredible violence and a skill at creating a deadly mayhem.
Since his last encounter with the Dark Knight, the Joker has been transferred to Arkham City. Eyewitnesses claim that he is stricken with a serious disease, possibly caused by his Titan overdose on Arkham Island.
He has been lying low, delivering order through Harley Quinn, so no one can confirm if the Joker is actually in poor health or playing another sick joke.

Additional Information
Additional Information
Nothing is known about the Joker's past, with him often changing his origin story for laughs. As well as his shady past, many doctors struggle to conclude Joker's type of insanity, with some even claiming he's SO insane, he's actually 'Super Sane'. The Joker declared the Batman his nemisis and since then has battled on in a hopes of putting a smile on the Dork Knights face. Thanks to TheJester

Possible role in Arkham 3
Of course due to his death, there's a very small chance of him returning. However a Lazurus Pit may bring him back to life and he can once more spread mayhem. Harley's possible pregnancy also means the baby's father will obviously be intertwined in it's story, possibly with flashbacks and information we have yet to uncover. Woops, spoilers! Thanks to TheJester

Essential reading
The Killing Joker, JOKER, The Man Who Laughs, Arkham Asylum: ASHOSHE. Thanks to Thegoddamnbatman

Chances of appearing in Arkham3
3/10 Thanks to TheJester

Thanks for all your submissions. Two-Face coming soon!

Possible role in Arkham 3:
Obviously, the Joker is dead. However, Arkham City has introduced the Lazarus Pit, which can only mean tha in the Arkhamverse, death isn't permanant. Could the Joker return? Along with the possibility of him apearing in carecrow-induced hallucinations, it's very possible.

Essential reading:
The Killing Joker, JOKER, The Man Who Laughs, Arkham Asylum: ASHOSHE.

Chances of appearing Arkham 3:
2/10. He's dead, but he could allways return.

Role is Arkham 3: Joker is dead at the end of Arkham City. Mark Hamill has also made very public statements saying that he will not play the Joker again. That said, it appears as though there will not be a living, breathing, talking, Joker, but that doesn't mean he can't be in the game. Since it appears that there is a high probability of Scarecrow being in the game, this provided the perfect opportunity for Joker to make a return; as an effect of Scare-gas. This could be both frightening and very emotionally impactful for both Batman and the player.
Other inderect roles for the Joker could include Harley trying to bring Joker back to life. Harley's probably pretty desparate and this could lead to quite a bit of conflict with her. Also, Harley is pregnant, possibly with Joker's baby which could have a big effect on the storyline, all caused by the Joker.
So, even though the Joker probably won't make a physical (or vocal) appearance in Arkham 3, he will still have a big impact on the story and will always have an impact on Batman himself.

Possible Role:
The Lazarus Pit could well be Joker's saving grace, and a worthy reason for dying to get out of Arkham City. Whatever happens, there will be a ghoulish ghost cackling over Gotham, but actually making a physical appearance? No. He'll be there in spirit.

Essential Reading:
Batman#1. Killing Joke. Devil's Advocate. Joker's Five-Way Revenge. A Death in the Family. Strange Apparitions. The Man Who Laughs. Slayride. Dark Detective.

Chances of Appearing:
50/50. If Rocksteady give us Gotham, it'll be hard to resist. They've covered themselves so he could return, but it'd be short-sighted to build the game around him. He's had his time...then again, he is the Joker.

Additional Information: None

Possible Role in Arkham 3: Either he is brought back from the dead (which is unlikely), or there's a conspiracy going around about his death. Maybe someone could impersonate him (like Curtis Base).

Essential Reading: Batman: The Killing Joke, Arkham Asylum: A Serious House on Serious Earth, Batman: The Man Who Laughs, Joker, The Joker's Five-Way Revenge, The Laughing Fish, Batman #1

Chances of Appearing in Arkham 3: 3/10

Joker has always been one to cheat death, but I don't know about this time.
He died from within, rather than a circumstance such as falling off of a bridge or something.

I'll say a 1/10 chance of him returning, physically.
I hope Rocksteady doesn't bring him back. Instead, just have the spirit of Joker still live on through Gotham.
That would be much more creepy & intense.
