Supervillain Origins: Killer Croc
Waylon Jones was born with a rare genetic disorder. This gave him the characteristics of a reptile, complete with thick scaly skin, sharp claws and jagged teeth. His birth was so unusual that it caused the death of his mother. Raised by his drunken aunt, he was tormented at home and at school. Committing cold blooded murder, he escaped from prison and joined a travelling carnival where he wrestled alligators to the death as the “Killer Croc.” Afterwards, he relocated to Gotham City with the dream of becoming a crime lord.
