The Reaper is a criminal in Gotham City who was beaten and thrown into Blackgate Penitentiary.
Reaper participated in relatively minor battles until, in Union Circle, he gets into a major clash with the Asylum inmate Firefly. Reaper almost kills Firefly, but the pyromaniac is saved by fellow lunatic Sumo, who jumps onto Reaper from a nearby building. Reaper's bones are broken, according to Sumo, by the big man's massive weight.
- Reaper was created by Mike W. Barr and Alan Davis, first appearing in Detective Comics #575. However, in the rebooted Prime Earth continuity his first appearance as part of the DC Universe is in Paul Jenkins and David Finch's New 52 Batman: The Dark Knight series.
- Although this Reaper wears a similar costume and also uses scythes as weapons, he has no known connection to Judson Caspian or to Julian Caspian's Reapers organization.
