History: Jonathan Crane has been facinated by fear since
his childhood.To that end he became a Proffessor of Psychology
at Gotham University, and was known in acedemic circles as an
authority on the psychology of fear. This obsession with fear
lead the proffessor to unexpectedly take a gun and shoot a flower
pot in the middle of one of his lectures, just to watch the fear
on his students faces. Brandishing a loaded fire arm in a room
full of students did not sit well with Crane's supeiors. Tired
of being mocked by "intellectual inferiors", who he
knew privately mocked his spindly, thread bare appearance, Crane
decided to use his knowledge of fear to presue a life of crime.
The University board fired Crane for outragous classroom behavior.
He decided to take the guise of the Scarecrow, his colleagues
nick name for him, but also what Crane thought would be the perfect
symbol of fear and poverty combined.
At first, the Scarecrow hired himself to various underworld tyes
who wanted to intimedate other for illegal purposes. This brought
Crane into conflict with the Batman for the first time, who deduced
Crane was the Scarecrow and captured him. In the insueing years,
Scarecrow has become a master theif gained great knowledge of
various other scientific disciplines, including electronics. Crane
has developed a number of unconvientional means on inducing fear
in his victims and opponents. In recent years, it's become apparent
that the Scarecrow to fears himself, including a fear of being
captured by the Batman. In an attempt to discover why the self
styled Master of Fear ranks bellow the Joker for Gotham's most
feared menace, Crane recently tried to conduct a city wide experiment
to discover why, earning the Joker's wrath. The Scarecrow is currently
back at Arkham, fearing the Joker's eventual capture.
Powers/Weapons: The Scarecrow is a cunningly brilliant
criminal mastermind and trained pschologist who is a master at
creating and exploiting terror. He has a wide varity of means
to induce fear, including special fear inducing gases, high frequency
waves transmitted by electronic devices, and pheromone compounds.
Scarecrow has developed his fear arsenol to such an extent as
to be able to produce specific phobias and fears in a victim,
e.i. he has a gas that induces both arachnophilia and the hallucination
of being covered with spiders simultaniously.
Fortunately, the Scarecrow has little to no hand-to-hand combat
