"Don't call us a gang. Don't call us criminals. We are the law. We are the future. Gotham City belongs to the Mutants. Soon the world will be ours."
―Mutant Leader[src]
The Mutant Leader was the boss of the vicious mutant gang. His base of operations was the Gotham City dump. After Batman attacks the Mutants at their headquarters, he calls Batman a coward for using rubber bullets to mow down his followers rather than killing them and hiding in the batmobile. The Mutant Leader challenges Batman to a one-on-one fight, where he nearly kills the Dark Knight. He is about to impale Batman with a crowbar when Carrie Kelly (in her Robin costume) distracts him long enough for Batman to subdue him.

The Mutant Leader is arrested and brought to prison, but when the mayor tries to negotiate with him, the Leader murders him without second thought.  Following a plan with Batman, Commissioner James Gordon deliberately releases him, and he finds the entire Mutant Gang assembled near a sewer outlet.  Batman then ambushes him, leading to a bloody rematch.  Despite his physical superiority, the Mutant Leader is no match for Batman's strategic mind; he chose the mudhole to slow the leader's movements, and he inflicts several major wounds.  Eventually,  Batman overpowers the Mutant Leader, and the Mutants disband into smaller gangs.

Abilities The mutant leader seems to be in peak physical condition, as he manhandles an older version of Batman in their first fight. He is bigger than Batman, very savage, and incredibly strong and fast. Additionally, his nails and teeth appear to be filed to points, and his skin appears a greyish hue. It remains unclear as to whether or not he possesses a metagene, which would make him a true mutant.
