abstract
  • Deacon Joseph Blackfire is a sinister preacher and a villain in the DC comics.
  • Deacon Blackfire was a con-man and cult leader and over 100 years old at the time of his death, despite appearing much younger. He had discovered the secret to eternal youth, bathing in buckets of human blood. Blackfire craves power and destruction, and orchestrates his movements toward these goals. During The Cult he forms an army in the sewers beneath Gotham City, largely composed of the homeless and derelict. Blackfire uses this army to begin a violent war on crime, which escalates into him taking over the entire city, resulting in it being isolated from the rest of the country. Blackfire captures and brainwashes Batman, temporarily making the Caped Crusader a member of Blackfire's cult. Batman eventually breaks his conditioning, but its after-effects make it difficult for him to capture Blackfire. After a brutal search through the sewers with Robin, Batman confronts Blackfire, who demands that Batman will kill him, making him a martyr. Batman refuses, and instead savagely beats Blackfire in front of his army. Blackfire's army turns on him and kills him.
