Alain Mauricet is a disfigured hunchback vigilante in Paris, France, who once worked with Batman.

Alain Mauricet Before His Transformation

Alain Mauricet was a small, sickly man who was inspired by Batman to join the police force in Paris. However, because of his frailty, he was forced to become a police scientist instead.

Eventually, he was diagnosed with inoperable cancer and decided to treat himself by recreating the chemical formula of the substance that transformed Clayface. Alain did not predict the immense pain that he would feel, and accidentally started a fire that destroyed an old monastery. His body was twisted into a monster-like form that he couldn't change. With this came enhanced strength, as well as a new purpose for Alain to become a vigilante.

When Batman came to Paris for a mission, there were stories of people sighting the "hunchback's ghost". Alain helped Batman catch and interrogate Andre Julliard, a member of the League of Assassins. Afterward, Alain considered working with Anton Legere, a police inspector.[1]


  • Superhuman Durability: Mauricet was able to withstand multiple point-blank pistol shots, as well as a thrown Batarang.
  • Superhuman Strength: Mauricet's body granted him enormous strength, and he was able to lift up a large man with one hand while Batman clung on to him.
