Batman's rogue's gallery is pretty odd - an extremely mean clown, a short guy who wears tuxedos and fights with an umbrella, a burn victim who depends on coins for all decision-making, etc. Ever wonder HOW this group of eccentric weirdos all got together in Gotham and began springing up AT THE SAME TIME that Bruce Wayne emerged as Batman?

Believe it or not, there's a very reasonable answer for all of this...but beware, you may not be prepared for what you're about to see.

 

SPECIAL NOTE: This isn't the FIRST time we posited something along these lines, although the first time was a bit more ominous in its implications.
