Ubu is the name given to several men who act as the loyal manservant of eco-terrorist Ra's al Ghul. The origin and first person to became Ubu remains unknown, since Ra's has had many servants through the centuries.
First Known Ubu
The first known Ubu was Ra's personal servant, following his commands and escorting Ra's anyplace he went. Ubu followed Ra's to Gotham City, where The Demon sought Batman's help in finding his kidnapped daughter, Talia. Once they infiltrated the Batcave, Ubu would often push Batman aside in order to let Ra's be always on the lead during their subsequent journey to Calcutta and later to the Himalayan Mountains in search of the "missing" Talia. Afterwards, Ubu donned a mask and acted as the Supreme Brother of the Brotherhood of the Demon, but Batman easily deduced his true identity and defeated him decisively in combat, learning of Ra's entire charade.
At one point Bane took the mantle of Ubu.
When Talia became Leader of the League of Assassins, she found herself another Ubu, who assisted her on her mission to locate the missing Batman. Ubu infiltrated Wayne Manor along with his master, her son Damian and a small faction of the League.
- Although this character was originally introduced during DC's Earth-One era of publication, their existence following the events of the 1985-86 limited series Crisis on Infinite Earths remains intact. However, some elements of the character's Pre-Crisis history may have been altered or removed for Post-Crisis New Earth continuity, and should be considered apocryphal.
