Scarecrow (DC)
Real Name: Jonathan Crane
Search for 'Scarecrow (DC)' on Amazon

Using a variety of toxins that cause his victims to hallucinate that their phobias have come to life, the Scarecrow instills fear in all who see him. When forced to fight, he uses his own style called "violent dancing", which is based in part off the crane style of kung fu, and makes full use of his long arms and legs.

A psychopathic sadist, the Scarecrow is one of the many criminals in Gotham City to be confined to Arkham Asylum whenever Batman apprehends him.

Ironically, the Scarecrow has a phobia of birds, although he has been shown occasionally as having a pet crow named Craw.

Jonathan Crane became obsessed with fear and revenge from being bullied throughout his entire childhood and adolescence for his lanky frame and bookish nature. He committed his first murder at the age of 18 by brandishing a gun in his high school parking lot during the senior prom. Dressed in the ghoulish scarecrow costume that would later display his identity, Crane caused the main bully and his girlfriend, who had earlier rejected Crane, to have an auto accident which paralyzed the bully and killed the girlfriend. Crane then discovered a savage delight in frightening people literally to death.

He became a professor of psychology at Gotham University, specializing in the psychology of fear. After his dismissal for firing a bullet at a flower pot to get his point across, he killed the people responsible for his dismissal and became a career criminal. He took the moniker "the Scarecrow," the favorite taunt of the hated bullies, as part of his revenge.

Deputized for 24 hours into the Sinestro Corps using Sinestro's ring in Blackest Night (2009) #6.
