Real Name:
Search for 'Banner' on Amazon

The terrorist known to the public as the Banner arrived in Gotham City after the city was rebuilt in the wake of a devastating earthquake that resulted in the federal government withdrawing support. Believing himself a true patriot, the Banner meted out violent justice to those he felt had betrayed Gotham, from gangsters to citizens who had turned their backs on the city during the yearlong period when Gotham became a No Man's Land. When the city was welcomed back as part of the United States, the Banner wanted to express his displeasure with the government's stance by blowing up the newly constructed FBI headquarters located in the Truman Building. A subway filled with explosives hurtled beneath the streets toward its target, and the plan would have succeeded had Batman not intercepted the train. The Banner escaped arrest and has not reappeared since.
