Maxwell Cort was a member of the Gotham City Police Department during the early days of Batman's activities as Gotham City's protector.

Cort had a hatred of Batman's vigilantism and, through manipulations of Hugo Strange, was made second-in-command of the GCPD's anti-vigilante taskforce under the command of then-Captain James Gordon. Strange proceeded to drive Cort insane through hypnosis, resulting in him acting as the brutal vigilante "Night Scourge" as part of an attempt to destroy Batman [1].
