The World's Finest Presents



Tony Zucco Voiced By: Mark Hamill
First Appearance: "A Family Matter"
Position: In Jail

Bio: A Gotham Mob Boss, Tony Zucco and his brothers used their intimidation tactics on all traveling acts and new businesses that came to Gotham. Zucco attempted to coerce the Grayson family to pay him protection money, but John Grayson would not stand for it. John's son, Dick, had called the police minutes after Zucco first appeared in their big top tent and the call was intercepted by The Batman who quickly took down Zucco and his brothers, even managing to knock one of his brothers out, allowing the police to take him away. 

Swearing revenge on The Batman and the Graysons for the loss of his brother, Zucco planned the death of the Graysons by removing two nuts from the railings of the Graysons trapeze act. While swinging back and forth, Mary Grayson noticed the loose bolts and looked at her husband who quickly knew what would happen. The trapeze fell apart before young Dick Grayson's part of the act started and Dick watched his mother and father fall to their death.

Zucco and his brothers were eventually taken down by The Batman and his new partner, "Robin", and delivered over to the police.
