The head of the Asylum is Professor Hugo Strange, a man known for using most unorthodox methods in hopes of 'helping' his patients. Despite the fact The Batman has apprehended several of Arkhams' occupants on more than one occasion; Strange believes that there is a place in Arkham for the Dark Knight.
