HistoryEdit

Arkham Asylum for the Criminally Insane is named after the late Elizabeth Arkham and houses the legally declared criminal insane of Gotham City. After the appearance of Batman, Arkham also became the favored institution for super villains to carry out their sentence. Through come clever legal moves, some villains opt to plead insanity and serve a lesser sentence at the Asylum at the risk of being driven insane. It quickly earned the animosity of some who accused it of becoming a revolving door for those who faked rehabilitation and soon returned to crime, only to be recaptured by Batman.

Arkham

Most recently, the Asylum houses villains such as King Tut, Psycho Pirate, Top, Mad Hatter, Tweedle Dee & Tweedle Dum, Mr. Zero, Two Face, Scarecrow, the Joker, False Face, Shame, Cavalier, Kite Man, Egghead, Babyface, Felix Faust, Louie the Lilac, Fun Haus, Sportsmaster, and Polecat Perkins. It appears the padded room and electro-shock therapy are the favored methods of rehabilitation.
