I would have said Bane IF I hadn’t just read Croc’s Joker Asylum issue. Croc escapes from Arkham Asylum by chewing his own hands off (gnarly!) and removing his cuffs. He almost dies from severe blood loss, but a couple find him and nurse him back to health on the condition that he help them work their way up Gotham’s criminal hierarchy. After Croc fully recovers, he makes good on his part of their bargain and acts as a muscle for the pair, and over time they even develop a familial bond.
Later on, the woman reveals that her husband has been beating her. Enraged, Croc violently kills the man—only to be shot by her lover. It turns out the abuse was a plan concocted by the woman to have all of the trio’s financial profits. Croc kills the woman and her lover, and when the police discover him sitting among the carnage he makes no attempt to flee.
It’s a very sad story, and proof that Croc is more than just a hulking “monster”. His three-issue arc in Arkham Unhinged also did a great job of illustrating his humanity, and by the end he has retreated from society to live in the sewers after enduring many tragedies at the hands of humans.
