Free DC Comic Character Profile : Two-Face AKA Harvey Dent

AKA Harvey Dent
1st appeared, Detective Comics #66 (August 1942)

Gotham's District Attorney Harvey Dent was merely doing his job when the mobster he was questioning in court threw a container of acid in his face. Batman was too late to save Dent from the horrific effects the mixture had on his face and, even worse, his mind. Dent emerged from it still alive, but half of him had completely changed. He was now of two minds on every decision, and the ghastly half of his body earned him the name of Two-Face.

Two-Face trashed the city wherever he went, including an elaborate bank robbery that left the Statue of Liberty - and Batman - in shambles. He would also attack during the Circus, threatening the VIP's and every citizen inside with an explosive death. The Flying Graysons would save the day, but all but one would pay with their lives. Dick Grayson would survive and vow revenge against the two-faced gangster.

Soon, Two-Face would encounter The Riddler, a fellow anti Batman supporter with plans to rob Gotham and take down the city's Dark Knight. And Grayson would team up with Bruce Wayne to form the dynamic duo of Batman & Robin. The tag teams would do battle, leading to a big fight at Riddler's Techno Hideout of Death. Batman would dispatch the man in green, but Two-Face would be there ready for the kill. Batman outwitted Two-Face, using his lucky coin against him. Tossing the coin to decide Batman's fate, Two-Face would be surprised by a dozen other coins getting thrown by Batman into the mix. Two-Face would plunge to his death, bound to fate by his own scales of justice.

At one stage of his criminal life he was also a member of the Injustice Gang, original members included; Libra, Chronos, Mirror Master (Sam Scudder), Poison Ivy, Scarecrow, Shadow Thief and the Tattooed Man.


Batman and Robin as well as the occupants of Gotham City.

This high-powered attorney became a highly-intelligent crime boss who loved to talk - possibly a side effect of his former occupation. Two-Face could handle a gun and throw a punch, also he had plenty of goons at his disposal too. He terrorized Gotham, threatening everyone in his path.

The criminal half of his personality was often in control, yet the law-abiding Harvey Dent still existed, bound by chance and his lucky coin - therefore he wasn't all bad!
