If The Joker were to die and his soul went to the Abyss, what kind of demon would he become?The Joker is one of the most iconic, well known, and powerful of all superhero villains. It's arguable that he could well be THE most well-known superhero villain, in fact. He's at least in the top 5 of superhero villains. As such, since he's at the top of the top of a list of thousands, I'd say he'd be one of those exceptionally rare few who would retain his personality after death and transformation and would become a unique demon that remembered part (or perhaps all) of his previous life... since that not only retains his villainy but could well give him a whole new story arc.
That'd depend 100% on the purpose for which I'd need him in a game I was running. All other things being equal, though, I guess CR 22–24 or thereabouts?
