Another bizarrely inventive criminal from the minds of Kane and Finger, and member of the Batman rogues gallery is the super-shizofriend-turned foe Harvey Dent -aka Two-Face. Despite a rather confused origin in the Golden Age, the character has become a mainstay of the Batman franchise, appearing in all form s of media - print, video and film -into the present day. According to Wikipedia:

"Once Harvey Dent, District Attorney of Gotham City and an ally of Batman, he goes insane and becomes the crime boss Two-Face after the left half of his face is hideously disfigured; he chooses to bring about good or evil based upon the outcome of a coin flip."

Detective Comics #66 (1948)
Origin of Two-Face
mm

"Originally, Two-Face was one of many gimmick-focused comic book villains, plotting crimes based around the number two, such as robbing Gotham Second National Bank at 2:00 on February 2. In his autobiography, Batman creator Bob Kane claims to have been inspired by Robert Louis Stevenson's Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, specifically the 1931 film Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde which he saw as a boy. Kane had not read the novel when he and Bill Finger created Two-Face. Some inspiration was also derived from The Black Bat whose origin story included being splashed with acid across his face."

"Later, it is revealed that Batman has trained Dent extensively in hand-to-hand combat and detective artistry, enhancing his already proficient talent in both. He also tends to carry with him a large assortment of conventional weaponry, including guns, knives, rocket launchers, and poison gasses. Two-Face almost always leaves important decisions to the flip of his half-scarred coin, in an almost obsessive compulsive desire. He also tends to fancy the number two, from staging crimes around the number to carrying and using dual firearms

This model is a repaint combining elements from some of my other models and new props and art. It was put together by John-Paul Cote. He came out quite nicely and I'm glad to add this model to the other offerings here. I hope you enjoy assembling this diabolical dual-demon!

Happy Modeling!!
