Scarecrow: The result of a traumatic childhood rife with bullying, Dr. Jonathan Crane develops an overshadowing fascination with instilling fear in his tormentors. He becomes a psychiatrist and naturally gravitates to Arkham Asylum where he is given unlimited access to case studies for his fear experimentation. Crane loses his professorship at Gotham University for wounding a student with a gunshot and feels prompted to inflict vengeance on everyone responsible for his termination. Becoming the Scarecrow, he dresses in a ghoulish burlap costume accompanied by a tattered hat and a gnarled scythe. The Scarecrow’s weapon of choice, his fear vapor, induces horrifyingly debilitating hallucinations based upon the phobias of a targeted victim. Continuous exposure to his own toxin has robbed the Scarecrow of the ability to experience fear----except for his fear of bats, and his intractable dread of Batman.
