Batman #96 (2020) Jorge Jimenez Cover 1:25 Clownhunter Variant – low print run
Batman is the secret identity of Bruce Wayne. Witnessing the murder of his parents as a child leads him to train himself to physical and intellectual perfection and don a bat-themed costume in order to fight crime. Batman operates in the Batcave, beneath Wayne Manor assisted by his butler Alfred Pennyworth. Clownhunter, who’s real name is Bao Pham witnessed his parent’s brutal deaths at the hands of the Joker at the age of twelve. As he grew up and watched the Clown Price of Crime’s body-count rise, he came to believe Batman wasn’t going far enough and that the criminal needed to die. Five years after his parents’ death, the Joker waged war on Gotham City, leading an endless army of criminals to attack Gotham. After watching some of his men burn down a comic book store, Bao finally decided to take matters into his own hands and became the Clownhunter. Using a baseball bat with a batarang attached to the end, he patrolled the Narrows and killed roughly twelve of Joker’s men during the war.
