Universe of Origin: Nightmare
For millennia, the vampire Raâ€™s al Ghul used his League of Assassins to manipulate Earth-19 from the shadows. His daughter, Talia, also cursed with vampirism, desired her fatherâ€™s power. All Taliaâ€™s efforts failed until she finally found the edge that she required, a man who was strong enough to challenge the Demonâ€™s Head: Bruce Wayne.
Talia, knowing Bruce was Batman, spent years influencing him toward her ultimate goal of her fatherâ€™s destruction. Yet she would leave nothing to chance. Talia created a child, the perfect union of her familyâ€™s vision and Bruce Wayneâ€™s potential. She named the boy Damian, training him in secret before sending him to apprentice with her estranged lover, as Robin.
Here, once more, Taliaâ€™s plans met with frustration.
In the final confrontation between Batman and Raâ€™s al Ghul, Damian realized the depth of his motherâ€™s depraved manipulation when Batman was infected by his grandfather. Damian watched as Batman, the man he loved and respected, became a ravening monster, succumbing to the curse of vampirism. The ashes of his fatherâ€™s humanity kindled a burning certainty that the blood of al Ghul could only birth monsters.
Now, feeling the compulsion of his own vampiric curse, the young Damien fights a war to scourge the filth of vampirism from the world.
Universe of Origin: Atomic
When they broke into an abandoned military bunker, those blighted survivors of the nuclear war couldnâ€™t have realized what they were about to unleash on themselves. Within its derelict walls, they discovered a hibernating computer system. Sensing their movements, the system activated and they found attached to it the head of the Joker suspended in a preservation vessel. The Joker welcomed them with a cackle and told them it was time to build the future.
The Joker told them that the military had wanted to use his unique mind to come up with nuclear war scenarios. Displaying a brutal pragmatism that the Joker appreciated, they put his head in a preservation vessel and got rid of the â€œsuperfluousâ€ parts. Now that the â€œseriousâ€ world was dead and gone, he told the survivors, it was time to build a new â€œcrazyâ€ one. So desperate were the survivors that they decided to listen to the Joker and began building a new community within the bunker.
As the community prospered, the survivors increasingly followed the Jokerâ€™s orders without question, until they eventually had no will of their own. When the Joker commanded that his vessel be attached to the back of one of his minions, so that he could better see the world he was building, many vied for the honor.
