Scarecrow is a supervillain, and the alter ego of Jonathan Crane, in Gotham City, who fights his opponents with a fear gas.

Physical appearance

Scarecrow is a thin male who wears a crudely assembled scarecrow mask, made out of burlap; the stitching on the mask forms its mouth. He also wears burlap gloves that match his mask and a floppy, tattered brown scarecrow hat. He also wears a red sweater, although as an inmate at Arkham Asylum, he wears a black and white striped prison uniform.


Scarecrow's devious mind seeks to exploit his victims' fears as a key feature of his criminal schemes.

When the jailbreak started, he was briefly knocked down by Batman while Fred JonesDaphne Blake, and Velma Dinkley ran away. He chased Batman and Mystery Inc. towards the main entrance but was trapped in the asylum when they sealed the doors.[1]
