Who Is The Joker’s Daughter? Duela Dent, Maybe?

In the pre-Flashpoint DC Universe, the Joker’s Daughter was Duela Dent, the daughter of Two-Face. In the DC Comics New 52, she is Duela – but perhaps a Dexstar (per vanity license plate below) and not a Dent – with a pretty difficult childhood caused by mental illness.
