History Edit

Originally, Dr. Burton made his appearance in a deleted scene from Batman Forever when he came to see Harvey Dent, aka Two-Face, but upon entering his cell, discovered that Two-Face had escaped, left a guard gagged, and a message that said: "The bat must die". Later, at the end of the film, Dr. Burton appeared alongside Dr. Chase Meridian. He informed her that Edward Nygma knew the identity of Batman, but later found Riddler driven so mad in his obsession, that Riddler self-proclaimed to be Batman.
