A small-time gangster in Gotham City and member of the Falcone Crime Family, Angelo "Killer" Mirti was appointed to be Sofia Gigante's bodyguard after her father's death at the hands of Two-Face. When Sofia fell from atop her father's penthouse during a battle with Two-Face and his gang of "costumed freaks", she was found by Mirti who managed to get her to safety before the police arrived. Mirti and Sofia fled to Italy where her brother, Mario was staying after being deported as a teenager. Mirti found a plastic surgeon, and Sofia was treated for her condition, but was apparently bound to a wheelchair and head brace.
Mirti returned with Sofia to Gotham, where Sofia attempted to revive her father's once great empire. With the criminal organization crumbling, the Falcone family found itself falling victim to smaller gangs like that of Oswald Cobblepot AKA The Penguin. Later on, Mario returned to the U.S. and informed Sofia and Mirti that the Falcone name could no longer be used for illegitimate activities. Sofia was locked out of her penthouse by Mario, and she and Mirti were forced to go to Vincent Falcone's estate on the outskirts of Gotham. This was where the Falcone's greatest threat would come, in the form of The Joker. The Joker (who believed Sofia could walk) attacked Sofia at Vincent's estate, and pushed her down a flight of stairs. Sofia then realized that Mirti had been shot, and was unable to defend herself. Fortunately for her, Batman arrived and quickly defeated the Joker. Mirti died from the injuries he recieved during the attack by the Joker.
