(Comic Canon only) Mayor Joker awarded himself with the key to the city in honor of his historic mayoral achievements and announced the first annual Joker-bration, a night of laughter and polite mayhem in honor of the Clown Prince of crime control. Alex informed he of a call from his old college friend, a comedian who also went by "Joker." The next morning, there was a knock on the door. Mayor Joker assumed it was Alex and told him to tell the print shop not to make the Ray Lenoman banners glossy but it was the other Joker. He mused Mayor Joker always did crave the spotlight and it was no surprise he was throwing himself a shindig. Mayor Joker was annoyed and demanded respect then pointed out people chanted his name in fear. He declared he was the most powerful man in Gotham while Joker was a pathetic clown. Joker clarified he was a comedian and was disgusted with how his friend changed, gettng wifed up and being responsible.

Mayor Joker quipped at least he wasn't telling the same knock-knock jokes for the last 20 years. Joker had a knock-knock joke for him and clocked him then grabbed the key to the city. Mayor Joker revealed he had a spare and they fought. Joker noticed Mayor Joker kept a photo of them with their third friend, another Joker. Mayor Joker thanked God he was dead. They laughed. Mayor Joker believed change was good and he was now an egomanical clown in a good way. Joker admitted he could use some change, too, and revealed he hadn't booked a gig in months. He bemoaned how hard it was for a white-grease paint heterosexual cis male to get work. Mayor Joker guessed one percent harder. Joker declared they couldn't win. Mayor Joker ordered Alex to cancel the Lenoman banners but was pissed to learn they were non-refundable. Joker took Lenoman's place and told his jokes. Due to the lack of laughs, Mayor Joker doused the crowd with his Joker toxin and gave gas masks to Bethany and Joker. He told him to knock'em dead. He surmised they just did.

Outside Gotham City Hall, Tattoo surmised they were one step closer to taking control of Gotham with Batman not being seen in weeks. Black Mask joked he didn't know Tattoo spoke French then proceeded with plans to put Mayor Joker in his pocket. Ernie Nguyen and Ira Colter were about to be the first couple to be wed by Mayor Joker at but the nuptials were interrupted by Black Mask kicking in the door. Black Mask allowed it to conclude but made Joker wear a vest of dynamite. As they ran out, Nguyen thanked him for letting them get married instead of killing them. Joker advised them to get out before they changed their minds. He then asked Black Mask what he wanted, knowing it wasn't to scuff up his desk with faux Italian oxfords. Mask warned him to be careful or he might accidentally detonate his vest. Joker gave him thirty minutes because he got a parent-teacher conference to attend because Benicio was struggling with math and he had a teacher to bribe.

Mask wanted Joker to hold a live mayoral address declaring him as the new crime boss in charge. Joker asked how he was supposed to do that. He told Joker to text Tawny Young. He complied as long as he could make it to Benicio's school in 45 minutes and managed to send the same text to Harley Quinn without being caught. Young learned from witnesses outside that Mayor Joker was wearing a vest made out of dynamite. She interviewed a young girl named Tiffany. Colter interrupted her, grabbed the mike, and quickly told Young what happened. Young and her crew made it inside just as Joker started his address. The Bat-Family arrived and drove out Black Mask. He noted there was something familiar about the fourth member of the team, unaware she was really Harley Quinn. Robin realized her cape was a shower curtain and Batgirl noted her suit was one of Catwoman's. Harley called it a work in progress. They quickly took down the False Face Society and drove out Black Mask. Mask hit Robin in the back of the head but he got off a Batarang and knocked the detonator out of Mask's hands but he escaped.
