Victor Zsasz is a Gotham City serial killer who makes a tally mark on his body with a knife for every person he kills, making him an extremely dangerous sociopath.
Early Criminal Career
Mister Zsasz would become an active killer in Gotham as early as Batman's second year of operation, during the War of Jokes and Riddles. When all the villains in Gotham were asked to choose sides in the gang war between Riddler and the Joker, Zsasz sided with the former.  As casualties built up and the war raged on, Batman was forced to pick a side to end the conflict and sided with the Riddler. However, as Batman and the Riddler's army made their final move for the Joker, Batman betrayed them all, and Zsasz was finally captured.
