"No, I made your favorite: a charred heart of black boar, a side of raw donkey meat, and a sterno and grain alcohol, straight up, baby!"
―Spice to Two-Face.[src]

Spice was a moll that appealed to Two-Face's bad side. Spice fit into a "bad girl" stereotype in sharp contrast to Sugar.


Not much was known about Spice except that she was a henchwoman for Two-Face's gang. Her competitor for Two-Face's affections was a blonde called Sugar.

A man calling himself the "Riddler" tracked them down at Two-Face's Hideout, he showed The Box to Two-Face and demonstrated its capabilities on Sugar and Spice, with the Riddler and Two-Face stealing part of Spice's IQ and promised that he would help them solve "The greatest Riddle of all, the mother of all Riddles: who is Batman?" in return for helping him steal production capital and place boxes all over Gotham City.

They formed an alliance and hid out at Riddler's hideout at his factory that was called NygmaTech where Riddler developed a strong mind device to drain knowledge from the citizens of Gotham. Spice used the handheld brain beam device on a regular basis while lounging with Two-Face and Sugar.

NygmaTech party robbery[]


Spice and Two-Face.

While Edward Nygma and Sugar were at the Ritz Gotham showing Gotham's elite his new improved box, Two-Face, Spice, and Two-Face's Thugs broke in and started to rob the guests in an attempt to draw out the Batman into a trap. Spice assisted in collecting jewels and valuables from the guests, whom she threatened with a whip she had brought. Batman arrived soon after, and she fled the building while Two-Face led him into a sewer trap.

Claw Island "game show" assistant[]

After she found out from the Riddler and Two-Face that Bruce Wayne was Batman, Spice became part of a trap for The Dark Knight. The Riddler invited Batman to Claw Island after he captured Dr. Chase Meridian and then Robin. Riddler told Batman him that he knew who he was and if they could truly co-exist. Sugar suddenly appeared, pulled down a curtain on a glass cylinder, and revealed Chase. Spice appeared, pulled down the curtain of the other one, and revealed Robin. The Riddler gave Batman a choice to rescue Chase or Robin, but Batman distracted him by giving him a riddle of his own long enough for him to destroy the mind device, which damaged the Riddler's mind in the process.

As Riddler's Lair exploded around them, Spice and Sugar escaped. What happened to them after that was unknown, but the pair are still aware of Batman's secret identity.

Physical Appearance[]

Spice wears a black leather corset bodysuit decorated with white skulls with fishnet stockings on her legs and shiny black heels. She also wears black leather gloves on her hands. She has brunette hair with purple highlights that manages to stand up on her head. She has porcelain like skin with a cute little mole on her face. Her lips are painted purple. Her eyebrows seem to be receding from her eyes as well.


Behind the Scenes[]

Spice was played by Debi Mazar. Mazar trained with a whip for an action sequence deleted in the final film.


  • Spice bares a resemblance to the Dark Queen from Battletoads (1991), a game that aspires to conceive the main characters in order to "produce merchandise" on a mass scale, in a similar vein to the Batmania craze from the success of Batman (1989).
  • Sugar's idol and inspiration is Marilyn Monroe, while Spice's idol and inspiration is Bettie Page. Both are pin-up models and pop-culture bombshells of the 1950s.
  • In the original script, Spice was known as "Leather", while Sugar was known as "Lace".
  • It was implied that Two-Face preferred Spice, while Riddler preferred Sugar. 
  • In the novelization, it is said she and Sugar disappeared from Gotham forever to avoid capture after Two-Face was killed and Riddler was taken to Arkham Asylum
  • In 2007, Debi Mazar stated on The View, that she was very depressed to the news of the filmmakers' decision to cast Tommy Lee Jones instead of Billy Dee Williams for the role of Two-Face.
  • The Arkhamverse features Spice and Sugar in the first issue of the Batman: Arkham City comics, alongside with Two-Face and his gang.
