Hush

(pop culture)
When Batman saved a youngster from Killer Croc, Catwoman appeared and grabbed the ransom money for herself. Both Croc and Catwoman, though, were under the influence of Poison Ivy, who in turn had been hired by a mysterious new villain. Completely wrapped in bandages, this strange, strong figure quoted poetry and alluded to detailed information of Batman's and Bruce Wayne's past. Chasing Catwoman, Batman suffered a nearly fatal fall. Dr. Thomas Elliot, Bruce's childhood friend and a noted surgeon, saved his life, and opened a fascinating chapter in the history of Caped Crusader. Batman #608 (2003) saw the first appearance of this fresh criminal mastermind in the debut of the creative team of Jeph Loeb and Jim Lee on the best-selling story arc bearing the new villain's name: “Hush.” Possessing no apparent superpowers, Hush quickly framed the Joker for Tommy Elliot's murder and became a central conversation point in Batman-related discussions. Unlike many of Batman's other recurring foes, the question of Hush's identity is at least as important to the story as what he's going to do. There have be numerous “revelations” of his identity that didn't stand up, including during the first arc when he identified himself as Jason Todd, the late, former Robin. While the ending of the first major Hush story left it somewhat ambiguous, many believed it was Elliot himself, who turned out to be not so dead. Subsequent appearances, though, have shown Elliot still alive but in the same room with Hush. Other readers have suggested that Hush is Paul Sloan, an actor hired by Batman's rogues to play the role of Two-Face. Regardless of his true identity, Hush joined the upper echelons of Batman's rogues' gallery when he appeared as an action figure from DC Direct.
