Hugo Strange was a psychiatrist who claimed to have a unique understanding of the criminal mind from years of clinical study. He convinced Mayor Quincy Sharp and the whole of Gotham City that the Arkham City project was the only way for crime and vigilantes like Batman to be completely eliminated.


  • Hugo Strange is actually one of the oldest Batman villains ever created. He pre-dates Catwoman and the Joker's appearances in the first issue of Batman by several months.
