The Joker is commonly associated with this toxin. It is possibly his favorite killing technique.
Even in Batman issue #1 the Joker had this strange technique of killing. In numerous occasions the Joker is able to create a similar acting toxin with simple materials found in a common house hold, but the poisons most commonly thought of as parts in it's recipe are: hydrogen cyanide and strychnodide. Once the Joker was able to concoct the poison using ordinary chemicals from the Arkham Asylum janitor's closet.
There are two types of Joker Venom one is lethal and the other simply causes insanity.
Simply put, kills with a smile. In some cases, it also gives the victim the same facial appearance as the Joker, with white flesh and blood red lips.
After prolonged exposure to the non-fatal forms can cause permanent brain damage. Also, while under it's influence black humor will be hilarious to anyone even the grimmest of characters will cheer up as they see their friends burn.
The Joker has placed this poison in his squirting flowers and joy-buzzers. It can also be passed through vents and as seen in Batman (1989) it can become airborne through giant parade balloons.
