Harvey Dent / Who’s Two-Face?
Harvey Dent starts out as a hero who grew up in a rough home and eventually becomes a successful district attorney fighting crime and corruption rampant in Gotham. He even teamed up with Batman for it. However, the once handsome and charming DA turned evil after acid was thrown on his face, scarring him forever. This incident eventually traumatized Harvey and was the catalyst for his transformation into Two-Face, one of the most vicious of Batman’s enemies.
