Martin Tate was a regular person until he decided to join a criminal gang. Tate was saved by Batman when the gang turned against him. Years after this, Tate started his own jewelry company, but he also developed a split personality and started a criminal spree as The Goblin. When Tate tried to kill Vicki Vale and Robin, Batman stopped his plan and captured Tate, ending the Goblin's crime spree. Tate was subsequently sent to a mental hospital.


  • This version of Martin Tate (Earth-Two), 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.
