Fighting The Joker
Sal Maroni took over Carmine Falcone's mob. He received help from a Chinese mob accountant named Lau, who hid their money in Hong Kong. Maroni was on trial by D.A. Harvey Dent. Though there wasn't enough evidence to put him in prison and Maroni was released. Later, he discussed the matter of Harvey Dent and recent robberies of their mob banks by the Joker. The Joker himself appeared and offered to kill the Batman for half of their money, but the mob refused. Sal Maroni was captured in a club and interrogated by Batman for the Joker's location. As Batman held him of the side of a building off of a fire escape landing, Maroni arrogantly pointed out the fall would be non-fatal. Batman simply replied "I'm counting on it" and dropped him, breaking both Maroni's legs. Maroni refused to snitch on the Joker, as, despite his theatrics and apparent viciousness, the Joker showed Gotham's criminals that Batman is still a man and is unwilling to kill. With this knowledge, Maroni knows he should be more afraid of the Joker, the real monster, then Batman. After Rachael Dawes death, Maroni, realizing the Joker is beyond anyone's control, finally told Lieutenant James Gordon the Joker's whereabouts. Later, Sal got into his car, and was confronted by the recently scarred Harvey "Two-Face" Dent, who asked him who was the corrupt police officer who betrayed Rachael. Admitted it was Anna Ramirez, Two-Face flipped a coin to decide Maroni's fate. It landed on life but the unsatisfied vigilante flipped the coin to decide the fate of the driver, which landed death. He shot the driver, causing the car to flip over.It remains unknown if Salvatore Maroni survived, but as his seat belt was unbuckled, it is unlikely.
