Black Mask 0003
Black Mask, Roman Sionis, is a crimelord in Gotham City and one of Batman's enemies. He runs his criminal organizations ruthlessly and effectively like a business, towards the end of his life having taken control of most of the Gotham underworld. The gang he usually runs with and employs is the False Face Society, named after his obsession with masks. The mask that he wears is ebony carved from his mother's coffin, and was at one point burned into his skin so severely that it has become indistinguishable from his actual face. Sionis eventually died when Catwoman shot him in the face. In his spare time he practices torture as a hobby, most famously murdering the costumed superhero Spoiler in this way. His memberships have included the Secret Society of Super-Villains and the Black Lantern Corps. Black Mask was created by Doug Moench and Tom Mandrake, first appearing in Batman #386. (1985) The second and current Black Mask is Jeremiah Arkham, formerly the doctor in charge of Arkham Asylum, who has himself gone insane. He attempts to take over the Gotham criminal underworld using an army of former asylum inmates to do his bidding through a combination of drugs and deadly obedience collars. For his methods, the police have labeled him a terrorist. His first appearances as Black Mask is in Batman: Battle for the Cowl #1. (2009)
