Jeff Bennet (H.A.R.D.A.C.)
First Appearance: “His Silicon Soul”
Bio: Before H.A.R.D.A.C. was destroyed, there was one final duplicate made–Bruce Wayne (aka Batman). The Batman Duplicate was mysteriously reactivated while it was in storage in a warehouse. H.A.R.D.A.C. was created by Karl Rossum in a vein attempt to eliminate human error. The duplicate thought it was the real Bruce/Batman, and it wa sonly until it discovered the truth in the Bat-Cave did it discover the real truth, and let H.A.R.D.A.C. take control of it’s mechanical body. In a final bout with Batman, it had all but when, but when the duplicate believed it had killed the original Bruce Wayne, it went against it’s programming and sacrificed himself to stop H.A.R.D.A.C. from being reborn. The Duplicate was never evil, just doing as it thought was right, and what it was later programmed to do. As Batman said: “Could it be it had a soul, Alfred? A soul of silicon. . . But a soul, nonetheless. ”
