Manikin src

Manikin was an enemy of Batman.

Miranda was a top fashion model and aspiring actress. She was born in West Germany and worked for some of the most notorious fashion designers. Her career came to an end when her car caught fire; Batman rescued her from the blazing vehicle, but her face was badly burned.

Months later, Miranda adopted the identity of Manikin using a costume created by her brother, Victor. The costume gave Miranda the appearance of a mannequin, but its servo-mechanisms also made her stronger than a normal person. After learning that her car catching fire was not an accident but was in fact planned, Miranda started her vendetta against the people responsible for her hideous disfigurement and she killed two of the people involved. When she tried to murder the third, she was stopped by Batman, who also exposed the crimes of the ones responsible for Miranda's fate.


  • Manikin costume powered with servo-mechanisms which grants the wearer additional strength.

  • "Miranda" was the professional name that she used in her modeling and acting careers. It may or may not have been derived from her birth name.
