Batman Joker

Batman Joker
How did the Joker, in Batman, get Scarred?

What was the original explanation for this (going back to the original comic books)?

Does anyone really know, or is the Joker so far gone into madness that he doesn’t even know how it happened? Is anything about the joke’s life really true or are they all stories made up by the Joker, on the fly, to suit the current situation?

I seem to remember that one thing all his myriad origins have in common was that he got his look by falling into a vat of acid, which is what I believe happened to Jack Nicholson in the first Tim Burton Batman movie.

Sorry, Industrial Waste. I just looked up the Wikipedia article and except for acid they say the same thing:
“The Joker’s real identity is unknown. Throughout the character’s long history, there have been several different origin tales; the most common theme depicts him as falling into a vat of chemical waste, which bleaches his skin and turns his hair green and his lips bright red, giving him the appearance of a clown.”

Some diehard Batfans have been slow to warm to the animated series Batman Beyond even though it was created by the same team responsible for the excellent Batman cartoon of the early ’90s.
