  • Mad Hatter (DC)
rdfs:comment
  • There are different stories about his past, but some say The Mad Hatter was a scientist who researched mind control, and developed a way to control humans by planting microchips in their hats. These chips allow him to use his victims as his henchmen and muscle men. They also triple their strength. Some versions have him obsessed with collecting hats, even to the point of killing to add to his collection. He first appeared in 1948 as a one-shot villain. A few other villains used the same name over the years, including the version played by David Wayne in the 1960s Batman television series. Later he was returned to his original design, albeit with a darker cast. Some versions suggest that he is a pedophile.

Later he was returned to his original design, albeit with a darker cast. Some versions suggest that he is a pedophile. In Batman: The Animated Series, Jervis Tetch is given what may be his definitive origin story. He was a neuroscientist experimenting his mind control devices on mice. He fell in love with a colleague named Alice, but being a naturally shy and awkward man, he felt unable to tell her. When he heard she and her boyfriend were fighting, he decided to step in. He dressed up as his favorite character from Alice in Wonderland to give himself confidence and used his mind control chips to make Alice believe he was a well-known man about town. When Alice's boyfriend proposed to her, Tetch snapped, and resorted to using mind control to bring her to his side. Batman was able to stop him and free Alice from the mind control, but The Mad Hatter's sorrow drove him to future criminal intent. He was voiced by Roddy McDowell.
