Origins:
 
Nathan Finch was an engineer at General Robotics. He worked on a project called the 'Androcles Program' which is a bionics program. When his boss fired him he kidnapped his daughter Gloria Osteen and demanded ransom. Batman came to the rescue and the fight took place on a frozen lake. Nathan ran from Batman with Gloria but the ice cracked and they both fell into the freezing water. Batman rescued Gloria and went after Finch, seeing Batman's ominous figure scared Finch and underwater he fired his gun at him. In Finches own mind, Batman was simply watching him drown, in reality Batman was dodging Nathan's bullets. Nathan's body drifted underwater and washed ashore somewhere and two people found him and sold him to an underworld doctor named Dr. Bascomb. When Finch woke up, the doctor told him he had suffered Frostbite and had to have his limbs removed. Bascomb then provided him with a number of interchangeable limbs with differing attributes. Dubbed Gearhead, Finch sought revenge against Batman, blaming him for the fall.
