After many years of genocide, they finally wiped out every living being in their homeworld and turned their attention to Mega-City One. There are four active Dark Judges, though they have been joined by other related entities over the years. The Dark Judges are undead, and as such, cannot be conventionally killed.niesergintlofis.ml/map50.php

Their true forms are incorporeal spirits that must inhabit corpses in order to cause physical harm. This involves obtaining recently deceased cadavers, which are subsequently processed by machinery that produces "dead fluids. The incarnate Dark Judges are emaciated, zombie-like humanoids with specialised powers. All four speak with a hiss. His tenure was a brief one, as he quickly became bored with slaughter simply for its own sake and did not share the original Dark Judge's fanatical zeal for their "sacred mission" of purging all life.
The Joker was restored to his normal, mortal form upon returning to Gotham City via a defective dimensional jump device. They started as Judges on their homeworld, who became acolytes of Judge Death - who had determined that as all crime was committed by the living, all crime could be stopped by killing the 'guilty'. When Sidney was a Judge-tutor in Law School , he took an interest in Judge Fairfax by having the other three future Dark Judges beat him to a pulp, before later mutilating them to prove a point that wanton violence only has true meaning when it serves the higher purpose of law.
Judge Fairfax broke with Sidney at some point, but the other three became slavishly devoted to him and his philosophy, and the four went around killing people on whatever justification they could find Judge Fuego was named Fire after he sentenced a whole school to death for noise pollution.
The society of the parallel universe they inhabited placed very little value on human life and many inhabitants were sadistic and violent, but even by the standards of their people the Dark Judges were vicious. Things changed when Death encountered Phobia and Nausea in a cave. The Sisters were death cultists and mass murderers with supernatural powers, and Death fell in love; the three of them committed acts on victims that he admitted sickened even him. With their help, he and his acolytes were able to become undead beings, thus being 'pure' to judge without hypocrisy.
The Sisters would themselves become ethereal beings with hideous magical powers. Already, the Judges were out of control and killing on the slightest whim. The Dark Judges took control and began murdering everyone on their world.

After they'd won, the group dispersed and were slowly consumed by the boredom of eternity and their own insecurities. After 'judging' them and taking their dimension jumping warp devices, Judge Death travelled to Mega-City One , against the opinions of his colleagues, in order to 'dispense justice' on this new world.
Death was eventually defeated by the combined efforts of Judges Dredd and Cassandra Anderson , his body having been destroyed, and his spirit form held inside Judge Anderson, herself encased in the miracle plastic Boing on display in the Justice Department's Hall of Heroes. Having sensed Death's peril, his comrades Fear, Fire and Mortis crossed the dimension warp to rescue him.
Released from imprisonment and with a new body created, the four Dark Judges continued their 'judgement' upon Mega-City One claiming thousands of victims.
And only Judge Anderson can save the day. And that's pretty much this book in a nutshell.
