First Appearance


Ubu is the loyal manservant of eco-terrorist Ra's al Ghul. When Ra's decided to retire as leader of the League of Assassins, he sought to find a worthy successor in Batman. Ra's and Ubu traveled to the United States and infiltrated the Batcave. Ubu assisted Ra's in staging a false kidnapping of Ra's' daughter Talia in order to enlist the Batman's services. He accompanied both men first to Calcutta India and later to the Himalayan Mountains in search of the "missing" Talia. 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. At one point Bane took the mantle of Ubu.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

Strength level

Ubu possesses the strength level of a man his age, size and weight who engages in intensive regular exercise.


Ubu's immense size intimidate others into engaging in combat with him, and as such, he has very little true fighting experience. His lack of physical discipline also yields an extremely low stamina. Batman once managed to knock Ubu unconscious with three solid punches.


  • 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.
