|Official name:||Acid Flower|
|First Appearance:|| Batman #1
|Used by:||The Joker|
The Joker commits crimes with his comedic weapons which include his famous acid-spewing flower, always tucked into his lapel. The infamous flower The Joker wears in his lapel sprays (at any given time) acid, poisonous laughing gas, water, or nothing at all. The flower's colors have varied over the years, but are usually yellow or purple.
Batman (1989 movie) Edit
- "Have a little whiff of my posy."
- ―The Joker[src]
In the 1989 movie, Batman, the Joker referred to his acid flower as his 'very special flower' and removed it from his suit lapel to give to Vicki Vale. The flower looked too large and too shiny, like plastic, which Vicki noted. The Joker then squeezed the flower, which squirted out the lethal acid contained within. Vicki dodged, and the Joker later replaced the flower in his lapel.
Batman: The Animated Series Edit
In Batman: The Animated Series, The Joker first used the flower in his lapel to spray laughing gas at Poison Ivy, who simply laughed, knowing that the gas would not work on her (because of her being immune to poisons), much to the Joker's surprise. She retaliated by dealing the Joker a savage karate kick. The Joker would use the flower in his lapel to spray laughing gas on his victims in several other episodes in the series.
The New Batman AdventuresEdit
In The New Batman Adventures, The Joker used the lapel flower once to spray laughing gas, and another time was able to defeat Superman with it. The Joker, during a battle with Superman, tried to use kryptonite on Superman, who had come prepared with a leaden suit. However, a dismayed Joker soon remembered the flower in his lapel. He squirted green acid from his lapel flower all over Superman, destroying his lead suit and allowing for The Joker to gleefully begin shocking him with a joy buzzer, as Superman was exposed to the kryptonite.
