The Three Devils were a group of three former circus acrobats who turned to crime using their abilities to rob jewels and later sell them to fences, working in Gotham City they eventually faced up with Batman and Robin while robbing some diamonds.


In their first battle the devils managed to escape the dynamic duo, but Batman kept an eye on them and finally discovered that they sold their loot to a fence called Frankie. Batman and Robin fought the devils once more, but the villains prevailed and escaped again, this time however Robin managed to follow them and found their hideout was in an abandoned tunnel in the Gotham subway. The devils knocked out Robin and left him to die on the subway tracks, but the boy wonder escaped in the nick of time.

Once reunited with Batman, Robin told him about the Devils hideout and there the pair discovered some newspapers revealing the place the trio would attack next; Batman and Robin found the Devils there, and this time the villains were determined to kill the heroes since Batman had managed to discover their secret identities. During the confrontation, the Dynamic Duo confronted and defeated the Three Devils, ending their first crime spree.[1]

The trio of criminals returned once again under the alias "The Daredevils" and started a second crime spree that was also stopped by the Dynamic Duo. The only difference, was that Dick Grayson was temporarily a grown man working under the alias of Owlman. The trio managed to remove Dick's mask, but they couldn't recognize his face and after, they were sent to the Gotham State Penitentiary, where they vowed to learn the identity of the Owlman.[2]
