Quote1 Giant mutant cannibals... you... you're serious? Quote2
--James Gordonsrc


The Monster Men were a race of super-beings engineered by Hugo Strange with a growth serum.


Hugo Strange experimented on some of the lesser known inmates of an insane asylum and injected them with growth serum that transformed their mind and bodies into savage beasts. As the creatures destroyed Gotham City, Batman had no option but to eliminate the monsters.[1]


Strange created these Monster Men by experimenting on wealthy citizens that sought medical help in his institution, which was merely a front to cover his illicit activities. Strange developed a "monster serum" that triggered the transformation or normal people into large brutish humanoids,[2] but most were not destructive enough. Batman eventually confronted and defeated a couple of them before going after Strange.[3]
