Biography

Waylon Jones was born with an extreme form of the medical condition "Epidermolytic Hyperkeratosis", which caused his appearance to develop progressively into that of a crocodile, hence his name. As a teenager, Waylon had no friends, and was the object of ridicule of those who knew him. He found a job in a carnival sideshow ... wrestling alligators. It was at this point that Waylon began referring to himself as Killer Croc. Even then, his strength level was greatly beyond that of a normal human. Croc realized that there was more money to be made in crime, so he set out to become Gotham's most powerful underground figure.

Year One

When the Justice League arrive in Gotham to remove the patients at Arkham Asylum, only to meet resistance from Batman, Killer Croc observes the argument between the heroes in silence until Cyborg angrily attacks Batman after discovering the virus he had uploaded into him during their first meeting, with Croc commenting that as "Pretty evil." When Harley Quinn releases all the inmates to attack the heroes, Croc goes straight for Batman, preventing the Dark Knight from coming to his son Robin's aid as he's dragged underground by Solomon Grundy.

Croc holds Batman down while the Riddler prepares to crush his skull with a large rock. Riddler is knocked out by Green Arrow and Croc is dispatched with a headbutt from Batman.

Injustice 2 Comic

Killer Croc was seen as one of the members of the Suicide Squad. Though the squad is originally assembled by Amanda Waller, she is ambushed and killed by Batman, who takes control of the squad himself. While Croc attempts to attack Batman, he is knocked out and carried away by Orca. After this, the tablet containing the triggers for the Suicide Squad's bombs is given over to Ra's Al Ghul, and Croc loyally, albeit forcefully, follows Al Ghul's orders. He and Orca later kill Ra's hostages, including Ted Kord as his first move against the Batman and the United Nations. Croc later joins the other members of the squad in trying to defend their base from Batman's raiding party, but he is knocked out by Harley's party. When Grodd rebels against Solovar's leadership, Croc helps defend Ra's from the Grodd's faction, even eating the head of one gorilla to help Orca. Later, during a feast in Gorilla City, Killer Croc learns of Orca's pregnancy and proceeds to walk out of the room. Deadshot begins asking Croc a wide variety of questions regarding his relationship with Orca, who silences the sniper by crushing him on a wall. Despite this, he is visited by the other members of the squad who encourage him to propose and marry Orca. Eventually, Croc follows their advice and proposes to Orca, which she accepts. In the following day, the two are wed, but as they exit, they are met by Ra's. Al Ghul promises to give the two a happy ending, and deactivates their bombs, but Croc and Orca lash out at Ra's for controlling them through the bombs. In revenge, Croc bites off one of Al Ghul's arms and swears to eat him. The action is interrupted by a returning Grodd, who picks up the trigger for the Suicide Squad's bombs. Grodd states that he will detonate the bombs of the other members, and Croc attempts to attack the rebel. Orca, however, convinces Grodd to keep the squad alive and use them for his own purposes, which he agrees to. Content that his friends will live another day, Croc departs with Orca.
