HistoryEdit

Early LifeEdit

Killer Croc Morgan was born a genetic mutation which gave him reptilian skin. In his childhood he was a carnival sideshow attraction in Miami, Florida. He eventually he joined the Wrestling Federation under the name "Killer Croc" and worked his way up the ranks to become champion. He was known as the "meanest dude in the Wrestling Federation".

Criminal CareerEdit

Killer Croc Wrestler

Croc as a wrestler.

Two years later, Croc moved to Gotham City and became a strong-armed criminal and ran afoul of Harvey Bullock, who arrested him. Croc later escaped from prison and sought revenge by framing him for the abduction of criminals Spider Conway and Joey The Snail. He was successful and Bullock was arrested. He later tries to kill Bullock though he was stopped by Batman.[1]

He was also part of a group of villains discussing how they almost defeated Batman. While everyone else describes almost killing Batman with some kind of complex deathtrap, Croc proudly proclaims that he once "threw a rock" at Batman. After a prolonged, awkward stares from the other villains, he softly added: "It was a big rock..." It was later revealed though that it was Batman in disguise trying to find the location of Catwoman, who was being held hostage by The Joker and Harley Quinn.

On another occassion Croc escaped from prison and fled through the countryside, taking refuge in a town of naively trusting circus carnies (including a "seal boy", a giant, conjoined twins, and a hunchbacked ringmaster). Although he began to have second thoughts about it after they treat him like a family member, Croc planned to betray them and steal the money they have stored away for supplies. He mentioned sardonically that, if left alone and to his own devices, he would still "act like himself".

He was also present when Batman was put on trial with District Attorney Janet Van Dorn by all the prisoners he had put away in Arkham Asylum, Croc is amongst the kangaroo court and was even heard yelling "Hit 'im with a rock!!".

Croc escaped from Arkham yet again and went on a crime spree, forming his own gang. While running from Batman and Robin, Croc was ambushed by Bane and beaten unconscious as a warning to Batman. He was placed in Stonegate Penitentiary to recuperate and while still injured, Croc was interrogated by Batman for information on Bane. Croc reluctantly told Batman of Bane's use of Venom.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

Killer Croc has a mix of human and reptilian DNA. He has also trained himself to become a great wrestler and sustain himself underwater for long periods of time. He is physically stronger than Batman and his jaw strength and razor teeth are also an asset.
