Ralph Vern was a forensic scientist and part of the Mystery Analysts of Gotham City, a group of dedicated mystery solvers from Gotham City who decided to meet regularly to solve mysterious crimes.

He was eventually removed from the team after he tried to commit the perfect crime and force his fellow detectives to solve his puzzle. While he managed to stymie most of the members of the team, Batman found enough evidence to prove Vern guilty of the crime.[1]


  • This version of Ralph Vern, including all history and corresponding appearances, was erased from existence following the collapse of the original Multiverse in the 1985–86 Crisis on Infinite Earths limited series. Even though versions of the character may have since appeared, this information does not apply to those versions.
