Harvey Dent

Note: During a brief period when Dent was cured both physically and mentally he renounced crime - but three imitators assumed the role of Two-Face.

In Batman Vol. 1 #50 (Dec. 1948 - Jan. 1949) the first imitator was a criminal henchman of Two-Face's known only as Wilkins - who disguised as his former boss designed to frame him for a series of crimes.

In Batman Vol. 1 #68 (Dec. 1951 - Jan. 1952) the second imitator was an actor named Paul Slone who while performing as Two-Face was coincidentally physically scared in the same manner. Convinced he was the true Two-Face, Slone committed several crimes before being apprehended by Batman and Robin and both physically and mentally cured.

In Detective Comics Vol. 1 #187 (Sept. 1952) the third imitator was a theater owner named George Blake - who abducted a reformed Dent and assumed his identity as Two-Face to commit crimes. Blake was easily found out to be an imitator by the Batman because he applied his makeup to the right side of his face.

District Attorney Harvey Dent battled diligently against the organized crime families of Gotham City. He counted among his allies in the war against crime the vigilante known as the Batman. Among his friends was the millionaire philanthropist Bruce Wayne, the Batman's alter ego.

During the trial of organized crime leader Boss Maroni, the mob boss disfigured Dent's face by splashing a bottle of acid, smuggled into the court, on the District Attorney's face.

The disfigurement segmented Dent's face into two halves, one attractive and the other hideously scarred. The scarring brought to the surface a repressed personality that had only shown itself on brief occasions. Now the dominant personality Harvey Dent became no-more, instead he became the criminal known as Two-Face.
