|Bios - Rupert Thorne
|Voiced By: John Vernon

Position: Mob Boss
Bio: Rupert Thorne is a man that no one wants as an enemy. Thorne
controls most of the underworld dealings around Gotham, and has
competition in the form of Arnold Stromwell. Rupert Thorne is usually
able to avoid be apprehended by the police, but whenever he is caught,
he's able to quickly get released, and back to business. Thorne is also
looking to permanently finish off Batman, to complete his control over
Gotham. Thorne has everyone from politicians to policemen on the take.
While Thorne does have some "legit" businesses, almost every Gothamite
knows about his dirty dealings. Thorne's crimes also have a dark side to
them. His brother, Matt Thorne, was forced to take his medical practice
underground after not reporting a bullet wound to Rupert's chest. Thorne
continues to control most of Gotham's seedy underworld.
