Everyone has something to fear.

Biography

Scarecrow is a brilliant psychologist turned super-villain who fights Batman in Gotham City, specializing in techniques and chemicals that manipulate fear. Jonathan Crane was originally a well-respected professor, although he lost credibility when he obsessively took his experiments too far and descended into madness, becoming obsessed with spreading and experiencing fear as the Scarecrow.

Injustice: Gods Among Us

Scarecrow appears in the Arkham Asylum stage as a transition hazard appearing in cell A8. He injects the player/opponent with his fear toxins, and takes a massive appearance, beats up the player/opponent before sending him/her into the Asylum Kitchen/Theatre.

Scarecrow also appears in one of the S.T.A.R. Labs Missions belonging to Batman, he escapes Arkham Asylum and later takes control of Raven and gets her to fight Batman. As well as in the background of Nightwing's S.T.A.R. Labs Mission, Look Out, where he is tied up, struggling to get out.

Powers and Abilities

Scarecrow is a master of intimidation and fear induction, using his own appearance and knowledge of psychology and chemical creation to inspire terror in his victims, letting their own fear cripple and destroy them.

Ending

After studying Brainiac's blood, I tweaked my fear toxin to exploit his alien biology. And as I gained control of his shattered mind, I also gained control of his ship. I began to explore Brainiac's enormous collection, soon realizing it was an unprecedented opportunity for study. Billions of species, from millions of worlds. Each with its own phobias and fears. Now, the Skull Ship is my laboratory. As it glides through the vast darkness of space, its collected beings are subjected to their worst nightmares. With each I study, my knowledge grows. It may take decades, but I will become the universe's greatest master of fear.

Costumes

Injustice: Gods Among Us

Scarecrow's appearance in this game is heavily-inspired by his Arkham Asylum appearance: he wears raggedy brown garbs over his chest and stitched brown pants, a hangman's noose over his neck, with his mask having both a hood over it and needle like stitching in it, with gas filters on both sides of his mouth. On his right hand he wears a customized glove with several syringes attached to them connected to a tube filled with his fear toxin.

Injustice 2

Scarecrow's appearance in this game is vastly different: his normal appearance appears to have been inspired by his appearance in the Dark Knight Trilogy, in that he wears a white coat over a formal suit, a burlap bag (that features three gas filters, one on each side of his jaw, and the third in the middle, over his mouth) over his face and a loose hangman's noose around his neck; his in-game playable appearance is far more terrifying due to the effects of his Fear Toxin.

Trivia

  • Scarecrow appears differently in the comic than he does in the game, most likely due to the fact he was not revealed as a stage transition character until some time after his initial appearance in the comic.
  • Though Scarecrow appears in several panels in the Year Five comic series, this was a production oversight and as such is considered non-canon, as confirmed by Brian Buccellato on Twitter.
  • Scarecrow's appearance in Injustice: Gods Among Us and stage transition in the same game is a reference to the 2009 video game, Batman: Arkham Asylum.
  • Scarecrow's voice actor, Robert Englund, is most well known for playing the famous slasher film character, Freddy Krueger, a demonic being that feeds on fear.
    • Robert Englund has voiced DC villains before, specifically Felix Faust in Justice League and Justice League Unlimited, as well as the Riddler in the animated series, The Batman.
  • Depending on which "leg" gear piece is equipped, Scarecrow can be either taller or shorter than most other characters.
