Hugo Strange Hugo Strange VideoWho Is Hugo Strange?
He chooses his words carefully and manages to manipulate people around him without them even noticing it. Strange is a Caucasian, bald, dark brown-eyed male with a lanky body.
He sports a gray beard and wears small, round glasses with tinted lenses. He dons a black turtleneck sweater and a gray suit. Strange posed as a well-intentioned healer for criminals, but he had his own agenda.
He orchestrated a breakout together with Icicle Sr. Strange played a crucial role in smuggling the cold resistant technology for the convicts. When they took over the prison, Strange was incarcerated together with Waller and the prison guards.
When Brick came up to Waller, threatening to kill her, Strange dissuaded him, stating that Waller as a hostage is far more valuable then Waller as a corpse.
Later, when the cons lost control of the prison, Icicle Sr. The escape ultimately failed, but Waller was ousted from her job anyway.
Strange was named the new warden. In his new office, Strange and Icicle Sr. Strange allowed the Team to interrogate Professor Ivo , though he monitored the questioning closely, without them knowing.
He was displeased when Ivo revealed T. Morrow 's whereabouts. He allowed Ivo to warn Morrow—from the Warden's office—that the Team was heading his way.
After destroying five ice fortresses that had blanketed North America in snow, Batman and Flash went to Belle Reve and told Hugo Strange that Icicle Sr.
Hugo Strange said that this was impossible since all five had been in the cells for the duration of the crisis. Strange assisted in the unofficial, temporary release of Professor Ivo.
He made sure the security was turned off to allow Sportsmaster entrance to the prison, and himself guarded an android replica of Ivo meant to keep up appearances.
Games Movies TV Video Wikis. Explore Wikis Community Central Start a Wiki. Bored and hoping to pit his wits against Batman again, Strange, now using the alias of Dr.
Todhunter, opens a private hospital, Graytowers Clinic, for Gotham's wealthiest citizens, where he holds them for ransom before mutating them into mindless monsters.
Strange then attempts to auction off the identity of Batman to Gotham City councilman "Boss" Rupert Thorne , the Penguin , and the Joker.
Now wanting to lose, Thorne has Strange abducted and beaten by his men to reveal Batman's identity, but Strange apparently dies without ever telling him.
Strange's ghost then comes back to haunt Thorne, driving the councilman insane. Thorne confesses his long career of corruption and is sent to Arkham Asylum.
Strange's ghost returns again to haunt Thorne in Detective Comics April , July , September , and November and Batman December , leading up to the appearance of the real Hugo Strange in the last panel of the last page of the fifth issue mentioned here.
As revealed two issues later in Batman February , Strange had indeed survived the beating from Thorne's men by using yoga techniques to slow his heartbeat to an undetectable level.
It is also revealed that Strange artificially created the "ghost" that haunted Thorne by using strategically-placed devices that simulated the appearance of an evil spirit.
Upon his return, Strange used the devices again to bring back the "ghost" so he could punish Thorne for double-crossing him.
Subsequently, Strange attempts to weaken Bruce Wayne through the use of drugs and lifelike robots called Mandroids, with the ultimate goal of destroying Wayne so completely that Strange could take his place as Batman.
The plan fails, and Strange apparently dies once more when he attempts to kill Batman by blowing up a replica of Wayne Manor with himself in it, stating that if he cannot be Batman, then no one can.
Batman survives the explosion, but no trace of Strange is found. Later, Strange returns yet again the Hugo Strange that "died" in the explosion was revealed to be a Mandroid in Batman Annual 10 , in another attempt to destroy Batman and Bruce Wayne, this time attempting to financially bankrupt Wayne by using various tricks to force three Wayne Enterprises shareholders to sell their stock holdings to him so he could bankrupt the company.
He also attempts to frame Batman as a criminal. However, Strange is defeated and sent to prison. Batman is able to stop Strange from further exploiting his knowledge of his secret identity by falsely claiming that he hypnotized Strange to give him a fake idea of Batman's true identity just before Commissioner Gordon shows up to arrest him; his explanation is so convincing that Strange begins to wonder if Batman is attempting a complex double-bluff by letting him think that Bruce Wayne is Batman and thus doubts whether his original conclusion was correct.
The Earth-Two version of Strange has a similar early history to the Earth-One version and also survives the fall that he experienced in Detective Comics The surgeon lacks Strange's skill, and the operation leaves Strange physically deformed the surgeon is then killed for his failure.
Strange uses one of his devices to capture Starman 's Cosmic Rod to use its power to attack everyone and everything that Batman holds dear.
He generates a storm in Gotham to obtain the device, which creates a dimensional doorway to Earth-One , bringing that universe's Batman over to Earth-Two, which allows him and Earth-Two's Robin to join with Earth-Two's Batwoman in defeating Strange.
Strange realizes that he is, in fact, angry at his own wasted life and deformed body, so he uses the Cosmic Rod to commit suicide.
In the Post- Crisis continuity, Strange was reintroduced in the " Prey " storyline as an eccentric private psychiatrist enlisted to help a task force assigned to capture Batman by providing them with a psychological profile of the vigilante.
While brilliant at his work, Strange is depicted as being equally unbalanced: he becomes so obsessed with the case, he starts wearing a replica Batman costume in private, convinced that he alone understands the darkness that drives Batman.
According to Commissioner Gordon , Strange was "abandoned as a child, grew up in state homes. A bright kid, but he apparently had a hell of a temper.
Nobody knows how he put himself through college and medical school. As an adult, he became a Professor of Psychiatry at Gotham State University, but had his tenure suspended after using his position to promote a series of increasingly bizarre genetic engineering theories.
At some point, he was approached by an Indian man named Sanjay, who seeks Strange's aid in curing his sick brother. Strange agrees to help, and Sanjay works loyally by his side from that point onward.
Borrowing money from gangster Sal Maroni , who is in the employ of Gotham kingpin Carmine Falcone , Strange sets up a private laboratory to test his theories.
He then bribes a corrupt orderly to supply him with ideal test subjects: incurably insane inmates from Arkham Asylum who have been institutionalized for so long that they will not be missed.
Strange's experiments have literally monstrous results, with his test subjects turning into gigantic, mindless " Monster Men ", possessing superhuman strength and cannibalistic instincts.
Strange uses the Monster Men to commit crimes so he can put together the money needed to pay back his Mafia connections. Batman becomes involved after discovering some of the gruesome remains of the Monster's Men's cannibalistic rampages.
When Strange sets his creations free at an illegal poker game, helping himself to the victims' money after the slaughter, the Gotham mafia begins to grow suspicious.
Batman tracks Strange down, but is captured by Sanjay and thrown to the Monster Men as an intended meal. Batman not only holds off the creatures, but uses them as part of an inventive escape.
Strange is enthralled by Batman, believing that he has found a genetically perfect man. He creates one final Monster Man using a drop of Batman's blood, and while his creation still has many of the flaws of its "brothers", it lacks most of the grotesque disfigurements that had plagued Strange's earlier creations.
Strange is subsequently forced to destroy his lab in order to evade capture. Soon after, he turns the Monster Men loose, including Sanjay's brother who had also been mutated as a result of Strange's "treatments" , at Falcone's private estate in a bid to wipe out the mob's leaders, erasing his debt and covering up their ties to his work.
In the battle that follows, all of the Monster Men are killed, along with Sanjay who abandons Strange and dies trying to avenge his brother. Strange escapes amid the chaos, and succeeds in eradicating all links between himself and his experiments.
Confident that his criminal past is permanently buried, he begins to appear on TV by reinventing himself as a "psychological expert" on the Batman.
It is possible that the events of Doug Moench and Paul Gulacy 's "Prey" storyline take place at this point. Partly due to Hugo Strange's appearances on TV claiming to understand Batman's motives, Captain James Gordon is ordered to assemble a task force to apprehend the vigilante with Strange assisting him as a consultant in order to deduce Batman's secret identity.
As the task force's investigation progresses, Strange grows increasingly maniacal in his obsession with Batman, going so far as expressing a desire to become Batman and dressing up in a replica Batsuit.
To that end, Strange attempts to kill the Caped Crusader so he can fulfill his twisted fantasies. However, Strange repeatedly underestimates the level of physical conditioning that is needed to be Batman e.
Strange also diagnoses Batman with various mental illnesses, such as explaining Batman's use of a costume as symptomatic of a multiple personality disorder , whereas Gordon more accurately explains the Batsuit's intended purpose as "scaring the pants off criminals".
Strange eventually concludes that Bruce Wayne is most likely Batman, brainwashes the task force's commander to impersonate Batman to turn the public against him, and kidnaps the Mayor's daughter while dressed as the Dark Knight.
Despite Strange's attempt to psychologically "break" Batman by creating recordings and setting up mannequins of Thomas and Martha Wayne blaming Bruce for their deaths, even using Wayne Manor itself to enhance his illusions, Bruce is able to collect himself and focus in the Batcave.
The following day, he confronts Strange and tricks the professor into doubting his own hypothesis about Batman's secret identity, claiming that his parents are alive and living in Paraguay and that he has no idea what Strange is talking about when he discusses mannequins.
Strange is ultimately exposed, and gets shot twice by the task force when he attempts to escape dressed in his replica Batsuit before falling into a river and disappearing.
Hugo Strange is then presumed dead. In Doug Moench 's "Terror" storyline, Strange mysteriously returns.
He decides to work with another of Batman's enemies, the Scarecrow , and use him as a tool to help him capture Batman, while simultaneously having fallen into a further delusional state, as he engages in a "relationship" with a female mannequin dressed in Batman's cowl, reflecting his warped dual admiration and loathing of Batman.
The Scarecrow turns on Strange when the professor's therapy proves effective enough to turn the Scarecrow against his "benefactor", tricking Strange into falling into the cellar of his mansion base where the twisted psychiatrist is impaled on a weather vane that the Scarecrow had left in the cellar earlier.
The Scarecrow then uses Strange's mansion as a trap for Batman, but his attempt to use Strange's plan fails when he tries to use Crime Alley as the scene of a trap while ignorant of the reasons why that alley is so significant to Batman, with his "trap" merely consisting of luring Batman into the alley and decapitating a former classmate of Crane's in front of the hero.
Dark Moon Rising: Batman and the Monster Men , "Prey" and "Terror" all take place during Batman's early years. In the modern timeline, Strange returns in a four-part storyline called "Transference".
He is then shown posing as a psychiatrist doing standard stress evaluations at Wayne Enterprises. While Bruce Wayne is on the couch, Strange drugs him with a powerful hallucinogen in order to coax Wayne into admitting that he is Batman.
Wayne is able to escape by using cleaning fluid to start a fire, puts on the Batsuit to fake the Dark Knight's death when the Batmobile explodes just as he lands in it, and triggers a post- hypnotic suggestion in himself, forcing him to completely repress the Batman aspect of his mind until Robin and Nightwing can defeat Strange.
Faced with Nightwing and Robin each denying that Wayne is Batman and witnessing Wayne's complete lack of combat reflexes and training, Strange becomes concerned that his theory that Bruce Wayne is Batman has been disproved and realizes that he will never be able to learn the truth now that he killed the Dark Knight.
Faced with this conflicting situation, Strange has a mental breakdown and voluntarily turns himself in at Arkham Asylum.
Following that, Strange reappears as the head of a gang of supervillains attempting to take control of Gotham's East Side, then controlled by Catwoman.
Catwoman joins Strange's gang, then allows its members to "find out" that she intends to betray them, faking her death when they attempt to eliminate her.
Although she defeats and imprisons most of the gang, and even convinces Strange to leave the East Side alone, Strange still mocks her by pointing out that he had faked his own death far more often than she had.
In Batman , Batman tells Tim Drake that a huge man dressed like a combination of Bane and Batman had beaten him up and he suspects that the impostor had used "Hugo Strange's monster serum and daily Venom shots" to gain his size and strength.
In the story arc Gotham Underground , Strange is associating with other supervillains such as the Mad Hatter , Doctor Death and Two-Face.
Strange and the others are rounded up by the Suicide Squad. Strange takes part in the miniseries Salvation Run. He is among the supervillains imprisoned on another planet.
Strange also appears in The Batman Adventures , which is set in the DC Animated Universe. Issues of the comic book provide him with a tragic backstory: he witnessed the murder of his son David by mob boss Rupert Thorne and was so overcome with grief that he sought to literally erase the memory with his mind control technology.
The plan backfired, however; following the experiment, he could remember nothing but his son's death. After Batman stops him from killing Thorne, Strange is imprisoned in Arkham Asylum.
The New 52 a reboot of the DC Comics universe introduces the reader to Hugo Strange's son, Eli Strange, for the first time.
Before he can walk away with his winnings, one of the mobsters forces him to play another hand, then discovers Eli's sleeve is loaded with cards.
Before he can give the order to have him killed, the criminals realize that their bracelet Eli's was a fake replica had been stolen.
Catwoman then pounces from the ceiling and takes out the entire group. She thanks Eli for being her distraction the two having been working together the entire time and tells him to run home to his father, which he is last seen doing.
Later, Strange tasks his son with overseeing an operation to dose Gotham with fear gas. The Scarecrow led Batman to believe that a small boy in a picture would be harmed unless he put a stop to it.
Arriving at the scene, Batman realizes that the small boy was actually Eli. He manages to avert the disaster and Eli is arrested. During the Forever Evil storyline, Hugo Strange is among the supervillains recruited by the Crime Syndicate to join the Secret Society of Super Villains.
Hugo Strange appears in DC Rebirth during the Night of the Monster Men crossover event. Strange wears what he terms a "suicide suit" - a near-replica of the Batsuit without the cape and cowl that is rigged to detonate if its wearer is subjected to any physical attack - on the assumption that Batman will have no choice but to surrender the cowl to him as the "true" Batman since he cannot take a life.
Nightwing is able to defeat the final monster - an amalgamation of the previous ones - by literally leaping inside it to inject it with a prepared antidote, while Batman outwits Strange by having his ally Clayface cover the penthouse in an airtight seal prior to the confrontation.
Strange, delirious and running out of oxygen, loses consciousness while Batman is still standing, Nightwing musing that Strange failed to realize that Batman's flaws were actually his motivation in protecting Gotham.
Hugo Strange later appeared as a member of the Cabal. In the Batman '66 universe, Hugo Strange is initially a psychiatrist at the Arkham Institute, until being revealed as a villain in Batman '66 Meets the Man from U.
In the DC Bombshells universe, Hugo Strange is a eugenicist attempting to improve the gene pool. He weeds out what he considers unclean.
Following Killer Frost 's plan to create a race of superhumans, Strange allied himself with the Penguin and Harvey Dent.
With Harvey Dent at the head of Gotham City, Strange would have had access to all Gothamites' genes and control the generations to come.
When the Batgirls attempted to stop the Penguin and his allies, Hugo Strange used his modified gun to force the Batgirls to fight each other.
However, Dent eventually betrayed the Penguin and him in favor of the Batgirls. Strange fled in response, promising to find other scientists who share his dream.
