Karl Ranck was a classmate of Tim Drake.

Karl was a jock and bullied the kids he thought were nerds. He initially wanted to like Tim Drake but instead, Tim stuck up for his friends, making Karl think Tim was a nerd too.[1] Shortly after, Karl's car was stolen by the Speedboyz.[2] Later, Karl asked Tim to join him in creating a sort of vigilante group to protect the school from an influx of new students Karl called "gangbangers and hoods." He brought a gun to school to keep them in line.[3] Although Tim was able to get Ranck's father to confiscate his weapon, Karl stole another one from his father and returned to school. There, Karl confronted a group of new students and drew his gun. In the firefight, he was shot and killed by Young El.[4]
