AND NOW…YOUR OBSCURE BATMAN CHARACTER OF THE WEEK (3/26/11)

….Carlo

What the hell am I looking at here?

From The Encyclopedia of Comic Book Heroes:

A vaudeville mind-reader who turns to crime when he discovers that the delicate brain surgery he underwent following an automobile accident actually endowed him with the miraculous ability to read minds. At one point, Carl reads Batman’s mind and learns his secret identity, but is shot and killed by Pete Jorgen, one of his intended robbery victims, before he can reveal the secret to anyone else (Det No. 70 Dec ’42: “The Man Who Could Read Minds!”.)

We’re about two for two here on one-time Batman villains who are also the victims of prior intense head trauma. Who’s this Pete Jorgen fellow? Sounds like a real tough customer. Guy will not be robbed by vaudeville scum.

AN OBSCURE BATMAN CHARACTER. EVERY SATURDAY. THAT’S THE HIVE OF SCUM PROMISE.
