Jonathan Crane is a psychopathic teenage criminal operating in Gotham City. The son of the later Gerald Crane, he was rendered insane after experimentation with a chemical agent created to illuminate fear. After years locked up in Arkham Asylum, Crane was released, becoming a criminal called the Scarecrow.


Missing Info


  • Chemistry: Regardless of not being a scientist like his father, Jonathan is a master chemist.
  • Psychology: After exposing his victims to his fear-toxin, Crane will make them embrace their darkest fears.


Phobia (formerly): Jonathan developed formidophobia (fear of scarecrows) after being injected with fear-toxin. Therefore, he would hallucinate living demonic scarecrows; although, later on, hallucinations are only triggered if he saw an actual scarecrow. It wasn't until he was locked in a room with a scarecrow that he decided to embrace and, in turn, become his greatest fear.


  • This is the youngest version of the Scarecrow, who appears in his teenage years during the events of the series. Due to this, he isn't depicted as a professor or doctor like in the comics or other media, instead gaining the knowledge of his fear toxin by his father.
