Originally one of the most dedicated and committed attorneys, 24 year old Harvey "Apollo" Kent was assigned to handle the murder case of mob boss Sal "Boss" Maroni. However, Kent lost the case and Maroni decided to make an example of Kent and threw sulphuric acid in Kent's face, horribly scarring his left hand and the left half of his face. Unable to accept the loss of his own personal beauty, "Apollo" Kent sank into despair deciding to allow fate to determine if he was would try to rise above his disfigurement or sink into it. Kent scarred one side of Maroni's two-headed coin and decided to let fate decide in the form of the dual headed coin decide on whether he acted for good or evil in any situation.
After a short period of time as a criminal mastermind Kent overcame his insanity after accidentally shooting his former fiancée, Gilda.  Kent surrenders himself to Batman and undergoes trial. Hearing of an experimental corrective "plastic" surgery that was developed by Dr. Ekhart, a brilliant plastic surgeon that could recover his skin coloring and structure, Kent agrees to undergo the procedure. Kent's face and hand was finally repaired through the efforts of Dr. Ekhart. The surgery was completely successful and Kent was able to mentally heal from his previous criminal practices. After a period of time, Kent was pardoned of his insanity and allowed to resume his duties as Attorney District of Gotham City.
After being cured of his insanity, some years later Kent would plead with and fail to redeem the second Two-Face of Earth-Two, former actor Paul Sloane who found his true calling as the criminal over his original failed identity. Kent would successfully prosecute the second Two-Face on several occasions after the second Two-Face would be arrested by Batman in his excessive criminal acts. Kent would eventually retire to family life marrying Gilda in his later years.
It is unknown whether Kent survived into old age during the time of the Crisis on Infinite Earths. If he did, like all people of Earth-Two, Kent was killed and erased from existence during the Crisis on Infinite Earths and succeeded by his new Earth counterpart.

Harvey Kent possessed the normal human strength of an average 6-foot, 180-pound man who engaged in regular physical exercise during his prime. His strength levels, of course, waned and waxed as he grew older.
Kent used a coin, scarred on one half and, to help him make planning decisions even to the point of making a continuation of a criminal act in the middle of the execution of said criminal plan which could be used against him. Kent's successor Sloane did not have that dependency on the coin only using it for whether the act was to be done or not at the beginning of said plot.
Kent used standard handguns and machine guns as an active criminal.
