A serial killer who was convinced that his family was evil, Arnold Etchinson believed that he absorbed something of their life force when he killed them. He was apprehended and incarcerated in Arkham Asylum. He escaped when Bane set all the inmates free during the events of "Knightfall," and went on to kill several more members of his family.

Eventually he was tracked down by Jean-Paul Valley, who was acting as Batman at the time. Valley chased him into a refinery and nearly knocked him into a vat of molten metal. Abbatoir was hanging from a plank above it, but Valley allowed him to fall to his death. Since Abattoir was holding an innocent man inside a secret, hidden torture chamber at an unknown location, Valley indirectly condemned that prisoner to death.

Abattoir returned as a ghost (during a brief period of increased supernatural activity, worldwide), to torment the original Batman (Bruce Wayne) using Valley´s Batman-armor, but Batman proved much less susceptible to psychological assault than his substitute. Batman tricked Abbatoir´s ghost into abandoning the armor and his mission. The ghost had been attempting to cause his last remaining blood relative, a pregnant cousin, to miscarry so he could possess the infant.

Blackest Night

More recently, the supervillain Black Hand resurrected Etchinson to serve in his Black Lantern Corps. [1]


Weapons

Abattoir utilized various bladed weapons during the span of his short career. His new power ring allows him to generate any weapon he can imagine.

  • An abattoir is another name for a slaughterhouse - a processing plant where cattle and pigs are killed and butchered for their meat.
  • Abattoir was forty-years-old at the time of his death.
