12 DAYS OF THE BATMAN! DAY 6: KILLER CROC

DSCN2254

Cursed with a genetic skin condition, Waylon Jones grew up as tough as his hide, and gained the alias Killer Croc. Although more recently depicted as some kind of reptilian mutant, in his earliest appearance, 1983’s BATMAN #357, creators Gerry Conway and Gene Colan made him rugged,but very human.There’s not a lot to Croc: selfish, petty, homicidal, and monstrously strong.

I like him best that way. While Batman has handled sci-fi menaces before, his best villains are usually humans, capable of all the evil humans can do.

Although I  picture a more down-to-earth Croc, I do think he spends his time in prison filing his teeth.

I hope you’ll head back her tomorrow for the next installment of 12 Days of the Batman!
