Bio: A technical and electronic genius, Jervis Tetch experimented
with animals using mind controlling microchips stored within hats to
stimulate brain waves. A love for the Mad Hatter character in Alice in
Wonderland mixed with an infatuation for his secretary Alice caused
Jervis to become an odd and bitter man. Donning the guise of The Mad
Hatter, he tries to win Alice's affection by attempting to make her
believe he is suave and debonair. Unfortunately she spurns his
affections. Her rejection enrages Tetch, so he uses his mind controlling
microchip's to force Alice to do his bidding. After being captured by
Batman, Tetch blames him for ruining his chance of having Alice and
swears revenge against the Dark Knight.
Tetch is a delusional psychotic who will use any methods to get what he
wants. This madman uses his knowledge of computers and technology to
satisfy his criminal desires. His mind controlling chip induces his
victims into a trance which either extracts information from their minds
or makes them highly subjective to doing his bidding. This chip can also
tap into an unused potential of the mind which can increase the subjects
strength and stamina, turning them into the ultimate henchmen for Tetch.
He is a prominent member of the rogues gallery who occasionally
conspires with the others to destroy Batman and Robin.
