    All of this screaming, the squirming, this fighting, this shouting, this crying, it's wonderful.
    — Jonathan Crane[src]

    Dr. Jonathan Crane is a former consultant to the Gotham City Police Department and the criminal known as Scarecrow.

    Biography[edit | hide | hide all]

    Early Life[edit | hide]

    At some point, Jonathan Crane was born to a pair of unnamed parents and grew up to impress them by studying to become a doctor.[6]

    Fear of Gotham City[edit | hide]

    Crane's arrest records

    Later, Crane used his knowledge in chemistry and psychology in order to inflict fear on his opponents, donning the alias "Scarecrow" and becoming a criminal. As a result, Crane was incarcerated at Arkham Asylum in 2019[4] and became a consultant to the GCPD in exchange for marijuana.[3]

    Meeting Jason Todd[edit | hide]

    Between 2019 and 2021, Jason Todd visited Crane multiple times and revealed the secrets of Batman. He later assisted him in studying chemistry in order to create an unknown substance.[3][6][8]

    Boy Wonder[edit | hide]

    After Todd's death, Dick Grayson consulted Crane about the "Red Hood"'s games and manipulation. He revealed the Bird's Opening to Grayson, allowing him and the Titans to uncover Red Hood's location. However, Red Hood was aware of their discovery and was steps ahead of them, causing an explosion at the bank.[3]

    Following his defeat, Grayson visited Crane once more and revealed Todd was in battle with his "father", with the former deducing that he might be using Batman's weapons. Crane complimented Grayson's deduction as the latter left.[9]

    Kidnapped[edit | hide]

    Days later, Todd sent an assassin to murder Crane in order to lure him to the public. The GCPD quickly fell into his trap and attempted to transfer Crane to Blackgate, only to have Dick Grayson kidnap him during the process. He then followed Grayson to Bristol County, where a cabin that belonged to Bruce Wayne is. Grayson used Crane as bait and eventually lured the Red Hood to the forest. Unfortunately, Grayson was defeated and Crane was able to escape his captivity.[6]

    Notes[edit | hide]

    I'm talking 70-30 sativa. Lemon Lyric is my favorite, but I'm not a name-brand whore. Just get me in the ballpark. Anything above 25% THC, we can have our little tête-à-tête.
