History: As Gotham's youngest and brightest District Attorney, Harvey Dent formed a united
front with Police Commissioner James Gordon and the Batman to bring justice to the city and curb
organized crime. In a packed courtroom, indicted crimelord "Boss" Maroni repaid Dent in kind by
hurling acid at the young D.A., horribly disfiguring the left side of Dent's face and fracturing
his psyche, already tormented from a childhood of violent abuse.
In that moment, Dent became Two-Face, a sociopath whose murderous actions were dictated by the flip
of Dent's own good luck charm, a two-headed silver dollar he scarred on one side to reflect his own
split personality. Obsessed with the number two and his own duality, Two-Face established a criminal
base in Gotham and repeatedly clashed with its Dark Knight, despite the Batman's best efforts to
rehabilitate his former friend.
