The moonlight shining through the Oval Office lands on a man with green hair, white skin, and what seems to be Secret Service uniform. The man stands in front of the President of the United States with a harpoon gun to his head. The smell of blood fills the room. The man has a grotesque and wicked smile on his face, identifying him as the Joker.
