Biography[]

Barry Brown was a talk radio host who sends broadcasts about The Wizard. He was suspected, along with Dunne the Private Detective and Professor Hammil, at being the Wizard.

After Batman, Robin and Commissioner Gordon arrested Dunne, Brown was called to Gordon's office, where he shows him his injured hand after removing his gloves. When Gordon asks him how he hurt his hand, Brown explains he cut it while removing broken glass from his garage.

When Batman and Robin learned the Wizard is Carter, they, along with Gordon, arrived at Hammil's house to arrest him, only to find Carter dead.

Subsequently, Barry Brown broadcasted a message to the authorities that the Wizard was not dead, warning of an imminent assassination attempt upon the Commissioner. As Brown was about to reveal the Wizard's identity, he was strangled by the invisible Wizard.

After the Wizard was arrested and revealed as Carter, Batman and Robin explain to Gordon and Vicki Vale the Carter that was killed by Hammil was Carter's twin brother and Brown got his broadcasts from the Wizard.
