Would you believe good, old-fashioned revenge? To be honest, I don't care if you do. Wayne will suffer and you will not stop me.
— Hush

Thomas 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.

Incident Reports Edit

Before Arkham Origins IncidentEdit

Tom Elliot and Bruce Wayne were childhood friends and, unknown to Bruce, dark reflections of each other. A childhood sociopath, Elliot actually tried to kill his parents so he could inherit their fortune. His plan failed partly due to the surgical skills of Thomas Wayne, and his mother survived, which made Elliot blame the Wayne family for his failure and sought out revenge against them.

Arkham Origins IncidentEdit

Although he did not appear in Origins, he was mentioned by Alfred. When listening to one of Alfred's Wisdom conversations, the final conversation, he told Bruce that Thomas had called to celebrate a surgery that he had just completed to seperate co-joined twins. In Bane's Underground HQ, there were newspapers on the floor with the topic "The Identity Theft Strikes Again". This meant that Elliot had already started constructing the mask of Bruce Wayne's face and had finally finished it in Arkham City. It was most likely just a recycled prop from the previous game, considering the differences in Bruce Waynes face's between Origins and City.

Between Arkham Origins and Arkham Asylum IncidentEdit

Elliot continued to work as a successful surgeon, while also still secretly planning his revenge against Bruce Wayne. When Arkham Asylum was opened again, Thomas Elliot started working there as a doctor.

At some point, he was the one responsible for the surgery that separated Mr. Hammer and Sickle, having been hired by the Joker to perform the surgery in exchange for the finances that would fund his later surgeries.

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 the Medical Center 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.

Between Arkham City and Arkham Asylum IncidentEdit

Thomas Elliot likely continued to work as a doctor at Arkham until he transferred to Arkham City.

Arkham City IncidentEdit

Hush first appeared in the Church Medical Center after rescuing the Medical Staff from Harley Quinn's goons. He was

the man to the left of the Church on a gurney, with bandages on his face and was clutching a box. Medic Adam Hamasaki said that he was a doctor who recently got transferred there who stashed medical supplies and then cut his own face off. The medic further stated that he found Hush laughing in a corner, and had him wrapped up and sedated. He also said that they couldn't pry loose the box that he was holding. 

Hush next appeared in the side mission "Identity Theft." Batman tracked six murders back to Elliot after scanning three corpses, interrogated one political prisoner who said that Elliot looked like Bruce Wayne, uploaded the fingerprints that were Bruce Wayne's and interrogated one inmate who was told by Hush to clean up a third victim with bleach who then told Batman Hush's location. When Batman entered Hush's hideout, he learns that Elliot had created a face that looked exactly like Bruce Wayne's face (minus the surgery scars) and even managed to change his prints and voice to that of Bruce's. Hush trapped Batman in his surgical room and left Arkham City. Batman informed Oracle of this and said he would track him down tomorrow.

Arkham Knight IncidentEdit

Remaining behind during Scarecrow's attack, Hush infiltrated Wayne Tower, gaining access to Lucius Fox's office on the top floor. After failing to gain access to a computer due to security protocols he hadn't foreseen, Elliot took Fox hostage, using his retina to access the Wayne Enterprises mainframe. Subsequently, Fox's assistant entered the room to investigate the commotion but Hush scared her off by shooting at the door. He then began transferring Wayne's funds out of his accounts. Before he could actually do anything, Batman entered. Elliot demanded that Batman find Bruce Wayne and bring him to the tower otherwise he will destroy the building. Batman tried to reason with Elliot, reminding that the Waynes stood by him after the car crash that killed his father. Hush then inadvertently admitted to deliberately caused the crash and lets out his resentment at Bruce Wayne for getting his fortune handed to him. Batman removed his mask and revealed his identity to Hush, daring his former friend to take his best shot. Startled, Hush attempted to shoot Batman, but the Dark Knight quickly disarmed him. Fox assaulted him with a vase, damaging his face, before Batman chokeslammed him through a desk. Knowing he couldn't deliver Hush to the GCPD without putting himself under investigation, Batman instructed Fox to lock the unconscious Elliot in the vault under the building.

Trivia Edit

  • His refrence in Arkham Asylum actually creates a plot-hole in the Arkham series' timeline as Hush is unknown to Batman in Arkham City yet he has a full bio for him in Arkham Asylum.
  • He is one of the few villains who does not have a game over scene in Arkham City, the others being; BaneTalia al Ghul, Catwoman, and Killer Croc.
  • It is unknown if Hush really escaped Arkham City after his encounter with Batman. If so, that makes him the fourth person to escape; the first one being Black Mask followed by Batman (as shown in the Arkham City comic) and Robin being the third. Catwoman also has the option to escape but if you attempt to, the game will rewind so you can make the right choice.
  • In Arkham Origins, Alfred reveals that Thomas Elliot had successfully separated conjoined-twins, leading many people to believe that these were the Abramovici twins. However, this doesn't really fit in with the Arkham storyline. It is most probable they were just another couple of twins.
  • This incarnation of Hush, cutting off the faces of his victims, is similar to the MO of Leatherface, from the Texas Chainsaw Massacre, albeit, significantly more skillfully done.
  • In Arkham Knight, Hush's facial scars remain, though they are much fainter. They can be seen in the character showcase.
  • There is a subtle hint during the mission that the "Bruce Wayne" who emerged at Wayne Enterprises was actually Hush instead of the real Bruce Wayne, as when accessing the phone messages at his office, the player can hear the intended recipients as recorded on the system, while when playing as Batman, the phone messages, due to Joker's influence, come across in a mocking manner. This is only the case if the player manages to complete the mission before defeating Scarecrow.
  • If the player completes the Hush side mission in Arkham Knight after defeating Scarecrow, Bruce Wayne and Lucius Fox's conversation will be different, mentioning that Batman is retiring due to his secret identity being publicly outed on live television (which Fox had been unaware due to not catching the news at the time). Oddly, Batman still won't deliver Hush to the GCPD despite everyone knowing his connection to Bruce Wayne by that point and thus making the risk of being investigated by the GCPD irrelevant.
