Hugo Strange is a deranged scientist and an adversary of Batman, frequently performing a variety of disastrous experiments that turn others insane or into monsters. Due to his reputation as a psychiatrist, he was easily able to deduce Batman's secret identity much earlier than his fellow rogues, and can manipulate ordinary people into doing his bidding by using mental techniques.
