Full Name: Waylon Jones
Codename: Killer Croc
Marital Status: Single
Superhuman Strength: Waylon Jones has incredible strength to match his hulking appearence, able to tear through stone and steel with ease, and lift cars and big rocks.
Jaw Strength: Croc's jaws and teeth are strong enough to break through rock and even steel
Durability: Croc can take heavy impacts such as being rammed by a car or slamming through walls, and is even bulletproof.
Swimming: Croc is more aquatic than your average human, able to swim gracefully and quickly through the water, and for extended periods of time.
Lung capacity: Croc can hold his breath underwater for longer than the average person, but still requires air to breathe
Superhuman senses: Croc's sense of smell is more advanced than normal, able to detect people via their scent, and can see clearly in the water and in the dark.
Standard Abilities: Croc has experience wrestling both Crocodiles and people
Dimwitted: Croc is brawn over brains, especially with his devolving mental state. It is rather easy to get the upper hand over him intellectually.
Primal Rage: Croc's mind is devolving, turning him into more animal than man. This is causing him to burst into uncontrolled rampages where he has little to no control over himself, lashing out towards the nearest source of meat to devour it, usually against Croc's true wishes.
Air: Croc can hold his breath, but he will still need to surface to breath or he will drown
Electrocution: Croc's skin may be tough, but he can still be shocked through it easier than if he was shot, especially if he is wet/in the water.
Waylon Jones wasn't always a monster. Born with a form of genetic Atavism, that began to transplant reptilian traits onto the young boy, the young Croc was raised by his abusive and alcoholic aunt. The years of torment and abusve for Waylon would be too much, leading to Croc murdering his aunt and running away, where he would be recruited into a traveling freakshow, putting on a spectacle by wrestling crocodiles. This wouldn't last however thanks to the owner trying to rip off Waylon, who proceeded to bite off the man's hand in anger before leaving to start a life of crime. Originally failing as a jewel thief before making a name as a hired killer among the criminal underworld.
Croc would first face off against the Batman when attempting to extract revenge on detective Harvey Bullock for his role in sending Waylon off to jail. The two would clash numerous times as eventually Croc set up a home within the waterways of Gotham, helping to take care of a group of homeless individuals until he once again was faced with Batman. Too angry to listed to the bat's explination that a new waterway being built would flood Waylon's home, Croc at the last minute took it upon himself to hold back the incoming torrent until everyone could escape safely, seemingly drowning in the flood and rubble.
Waylon survived however, forced to feed on rats to survive and wander in lonesome isolation. Once he returned on the surface, he went into a mad frenzy upon being confronted by a vagrant, leading to a confrontation between Croc, Batman, and Bane within a shopping mall. During this confrontation Bane would break both of Croc's arms, leading to a hateful rivalry to brew up between the two. Only further cemented in the next Arkham breakout, where Croc would single out Bane for a rematch, which ended in a draw as Croc was left with one broken arm and caught by Dick Grayson as Batman.
Croc would remain locked up in Arkham until some strange supernatural force helped Waylon break out, along with some strange draw towards the swamps in Louisiana, revealing the force to be none other than Swmap Thing. The entity of the green had decreed Waylon to be an animal not man, allowing him to live in the swamps free of human interference or persecution despite Batman's objections. However while Croc may have been done with humanity, humanity was not done with him.
Kidnapped from the swamps by the criminal Hush, who injected Croc with a serum that mutated him even further, and he was forced to obey his tormentor's orders in hopes of a cure. He would begin to be cured, only for the combination of Mad Hatter and Black Mask to implant him with a mind control chip that also returned him to his more monstrous mutated form. Under the guise of scratching an itch, Croc was able to claw into himself deep enough to extract the chip, going for bloody revenge against the duo before Batman managed to stop him. Escaping afterwards, Croc would kidnap a doctor in hopes of curing his new mutated condition, only for her failure to trigger a primal attack from his devolving mental state, leading to Waylon devouring the doctor to his horror, and vowing vengeance against both Batman and Black Mask.
Croc would join Alexander Luthor jr's secret society of supervillains before returning to the sewers of gotham, caught devouring the body of Orca in his devolving state, as well as attempting to kill Jimmy Olsen in a Arkham breakout before he was subdued. Whens shipped off to the prison planet salvation, Croc would make mention of eating Martian Manhunter to be rid of the hero, but being stopped by Lex Luthor.
Waylon would later join both Libra's secret society of supervillains, as well as a team of villains assembled by the second Black Mask in an attempt to capture both Gotham and Bloodhaven, only to end up in Arkham once more. Croc would be released by a dying guard in an attempt to stop Deathstroke and his murderous titans brigade, only to end up attacked by Osiris who mistook him for the villain Sobek.
A low, bellowing snarl echoed throughout the Gotham waterways, a depository for those that the city bore no care. Trash. Waste. People. The murky waters below washed it all away...Well, aside from one peculiar case that is. The guttertrash too foolish or apathetic to remain near the waterfront knew. They knew all too well. Yellow eyes glistened in the night for merely a brief moment, only to rescind back within the depths. Nothing more than a small ripple disturbing the shimmering surface that stretched for miles.
An unlucky lepper found himself the latest sacrifice being squeezed dry by this unforgiving cesspool. A wannabe big shot with a sleek suit and equally greasy hair. As if demanding ransom from the penniless made you out to be anything but pathetic. With a graceful silence that clashed with the beastly form rising up from the darkest depths that evolution forgot. Mottled, almost rotten looking emerald scales dripping rhythmically and yellow eyes shining as a beacon behind their latest target. The lepper couldn't utter so much as a word before a hissing bellow pierced through the air, alerting the scum mere moments before it all went red.
Half spilling over the wooden planks, half sinking to join Gotham's most forgotten graveyard, there were now two elements dripping down from Croc's claws, indistinguishable from eachother in the pale moonlight. Frozen in fear, the lepper braced for the same only to be met with a snarl. "Beat it." came a voice, reminiscent of a fistful of gravel being gargled down with battery acid, matching it's frightfully gruesome owner as footsteps pounded as hard as the survivor's throbbing heart. A softer bellow wafted through the air as Waylon Jones made his way towards a nearby drainage tunnel for the night, shuffeling footsteps drifting further and further within the pipes. He was a man that evolution forgot, but a monster, those are unforgettable. To Gotham, Killer Croc was as much of a monster as they come.
