Gil Golen adopted the moniker of the Maked Mystic to operate as a criminal in Gotham City. His activities attracted the attention of the local vigilantes Batman and Robin, who started a investigating Golen's movements. When Golen learned that Commissioner Gordon knew the secret identity of Batman, he forced the old man to reveal the truth. However, Gordon didn't actually knew Batman's identity and the information he gave Golen led the criminal to his ultimate capture by Batman.


  • This version of Masked Mystic, including all history and corresponding appearances, was initially erased from existence following the collapse of the original Multiverse in the 1985–86 Crisis on Infinite Earths limited series. However the ending of Convergence retroactively prevented that collapse, saving all the alternate realities, though in an "evolved" form. Even though versions of the character may have since appeared, this information does not apply to those versions.
