The Scarecrow is a cunning criminal mastermind and psychologist who is an expert at creating fear. He is an extremely accomplished biochemist and an expert in the crane style of martial arts.
Fear Gas: Scarecrow has developed a fear inducing gas that he uses on his victims. He can induce specific fears or cause his victim to experience their own worst fears.
As a child, the spindly Jonathan Crane found himself an easy target for local bullies. Fighting for years to overcome his terror, Crane dedicated himself to the study of fear itself. His studies of psychology and biochemistry, combined with his advanced knowledge of fear, allowed Crane to gain a professorship at Gotham University. Crane’s confidence in the security of his new position was his undoing, for his unorthodox and unsafe teaching methods warranted his dismissal. Vowing revenge, Crane adopted the tattered raiment’s of a scarecrow and scared several of the university’s regents to death before he was stopped by Batman.
