Matches Malone was a New Jersey gangster and arsonist whose identity was taken by Batman after his death. Batman uses his street credibility to gain intelligence on criminal organizations he would not otherwise be able to infiltrate. This also acts as a way of providing redemption for a man that Batman believes wasn't all that bad. The nickname "Matches" comes from his habit of constantly keeping a match in his teeth. Matches Malone was created by Dennis O'Neil and Irv Novick, first appearing in Batman #242. (1972) ||
