Ra's had liberated all of Blackgate's convicts with the intent of using them as part of a massive campaign against Batman, but Ventris had other plans in mind. He walked away from Ra's, unwilling to fight under someone else's orders or risk capture by Batman again.
While most of the other villains were later rounded up, Batman noted that Mirror Man remained at large. Batman , October By his own admission, Ventris remained inactive and content with obscurity. As he aged he lost the appetite for grandiose capers and focused on small, modest heists.

He was left for dead by another minor villain, Tony Finch, and was last reported in critical condition at Gotham General Hospital. Another villain known as "Mirror Man", also referred to as Narcissus, appeared in Jeremiah Arkham 's imagination.

He did possess some technical proficiency, but his accomplishments were limited to reverse engineering and refining a two-way electronic mirror stolen from a dead scientist's estate.

He used them primarily for safecracking purposes, reading the combinations printed on a safe's interior. Ventris is re-imagined as a lab assistance who steals a mirrored cloak with light-bending properties from his scientist employer, allowing him to pass unseen among other people and commit crimes.

I clicked on the link apart from my better judgment And I wish I hadn't What I saw in that picture will be sure to haunt me for the rest of my life. It was Tim It was his corpse.
The Mirror Man
Pale and lifeless. His jaw was hanging open as if he was screaming There were dozens of shards of glass dug into his skin, including two larger ones that were stuck into his eyes. There was blood everywhere And carved into his chest were two parallel lines, lined up vertically with an X slightly overlapping them. I was appalled and I began to cry He was a kid for fuck's sake. Who did this to him Why did they did this to him?! Instinctively the first thing I thought was The Mirror Man.
Was he really real? Did he really do this to Tim? All these questions buzzed in my head. I started feeling nauseous. I ripped the cord out of my computer making the screen go black.

And I just cried there. The FBI started questioning people. But one thing kept I my mind the entire time was Why couldn't I see the Mirror Man I shouldn't even be asking this, I should just consider it a blessing and leave it alone but I wanted to know why One final time I went into my bathroom. One final time I turned the lights off and looked in the mirror And One. I had said "Mirror Man Mirror Man Mirror Man" My voice grew shaky and unstable with each time my mind was about to snap I needed to know!
And finally I saw him My reflection started to distort It was replaced by a man He was wearing a pair of jeans and an olive green hooded sweatshirt. But his clothes were bloodstained There were shards of glass sticking into him and impaling him like a fucking pincushion! His mouth was sewn shut and I couldn't see the rest of his face But in his hand there was a bloody shard of mirror.
I was petrified. How does one react to a serial killer staring him down?! I didn't think this could be real. It had to be one big fucked up dream or a hallucination or something!
