History

The event takes place within the Infinite Frontier era and is a prequel storyline that leads directly into the events of the DC Future State series that was released January-February 2021. The event takes place in the City of Gotham and outlying areas Bludhaven and Alleytown.

Fear State derives its name from a paper that was written by Jonathan Crane while attending Gotham University. The paper laid out details on the benefits of a fear ridden society and major catastrophes, in that they eventually lead to inevitable societal and human evolution. The main plot revolves around Scarecrow and Simon Saint who use each others resources to attempt to acquire full control of Gotham City through fear.

Scarecrow uses Saint for his means on gaining chemicals to make an upgraded and enhanced fear toxin to spread throughout Gotham City that adds an aspect of mind control within its victims. After creating his new toxin, Scarecrow eventually breaks away from Saint and the Magistrate to wreak havoc on the city alone, and turn the citizens of Gotham against the Magistrate.

Saint uses Scarecrow and his Fear State ideology to eventually cause a Final Gotham Crisis, in which the end result is Gotham City surrendering full police and military authoritarian control to the Magistrate, establishing a permanent police state.
