Comic Book Villain of the Week

Make-Up Man
Not actually a man of make-up, but a make-up expect. His real name is unknown, as is, apparently, his real face. He changes his appearance periodically; no one has seen his real face in over ten years.

Yet despite his skills with make-up, he in fact uses life-like robots to commit his crimes. He comes to the attention of the dynamic duo after robbing a jewellery store. Batman discovers Make-Up Man’s hideout, where the two do battle with his robots and a flying mask. Despite his skill with make-up, Make-Up Man uses a plethora of masks too.

Considering his incredible skills with robots and his ability to make mask fly, it’s possible that his moniker might just be underselling his abilities just a wee bit. He appeared only once.
