|Real name:||Thomas Elliot|
Base of Operations:
|First Appearance:||Batman #609 (January 2003)|
Tommy Elliot and Bruce Wayne were childhood friends and, unknown to Bruce, dark reflections of each other. A childhood sociopath, Elliot tried to kill his parents so he could inherit their fortune. When his plan failed partly due to the surgical skills of Thomas Wayne, Bruce's father, Elliot blamed Bruce.
An incredibly skilled surgeon as an adult, Elliot planned an elaborate revenge scheme on the Batman. He disguised himself as the villain known as Hush, his face covered in bandages, and plotted to finally take his revenge against Wayne.
Arkham Asylum IncidentEdit
Even though you can't meet Hush in the asylum itself, you can find his name on a timetable for the Surgery room in Medical on the second floor in the same room as you rescue Dr. Adrian Chen. It is easiest to grapple up as soon as the fight that ensues as you attempt to rescue Chen starts. Turn around and scan the timetable to solve the riddle and unlock his biography.
Arkham City IncidentEdit
Hush first appears in the the Church after rescuing the Medical Staff from Harley Quinn's goons. He is a man to the left of the Church in a gurney, with bandages on his face and clutching a box. The doctor there says that he was a doctor recently transfered there who stashed medical supplies and then cut his own face off. The doctor further states that he found Hush laughing in a corner, and was wrapped up and sedated. He also said that they couldn't pry a box he was holding.
Hush next appears in the side mission "Identity Theft." Batman tracks six murders back to Elliot after scanning three corpses and interrogating one political prisoner and one inmate, and finds out that he has created a face that is exactly like Bruce Wayne's face (minus the surgery scars) and leaves Arkham City. Batman informs Oracle of this and says he will deal with him later.
- Great physical strength, augmented by a hatred of Bruce Wayne
- World-class surgeon, capable of extraordinary medical breakthroughs
- Master of disguise
- Determined to destroy Bruce Wayne
- It would appear his surgical disguise isn't 100% perfect, as he will noticeably press down and pull on his neck and throat and breath deeply as if trying to readjust it from time to time.
- After hearing Adam's account of what happened to Elliot, the radio next to him will broadcast a story concerning Bruce Wayne's arrest and incarceration in Arkham City. Elliot will move his head suddenly and utter "Wayne" in anger after hearing his name, showing just how obsessed and vengeful Elliot is towards Bruce Wayne.
- Canisters of the Scarecrow's Fear Gas can be found in Elliot's hideout, suggesting that there is a partnership between the two villains.
- Since you do not fight him, he has no game over lines (same as Killer Croc and Bane)
