In the promo, the Clown Prince faces off against Damian Wayne who informs him, "I'm no Jason Todd." The Joker replies, "He's pathetic; you're contemptible."

The Joker unleashes a barrage of knives, guns and bombs against Superman and Green Lantern, but the turning point comes when he administers his super-move on Damian, and transports the Boy Wonder to a torture chamber. There, Robin is subjected to a beating with a crowbar, an electrocution, and an explosion, a scene that harks back to the 1988-89 "A Death in the Family" storyline in which The Joker killed Jason Todd.
