"Judge Drake" was a prominent Gotham judge during Batman's early years. According to the Joker, he had once convicted him for a crime and given him a prison sentence. During the final night of his first crime spree, the Joker publicly threatened to kill Drake at ten o'clock. To ease the tension in his final hour, Drake played cards with the Police Chief guarding him and won several hands. However, the Chief had actually been subdued and the man he was playing against was actually the Joker in disguise. When the criminal revealed himself, Drake died shortly afterwards due to exposure to the killer's venom.

Notes[]

  • It is unclear how Drake was given the Joker's venom and his is the only one never explained. Among the possibilities are the Joker injecting him prior to the meeting (as he'd done with Henry Claridge) or by lacing the cards with the venom.
