Batman:The Animated Series Wiki

Carl Beaumont was a businessman from Gotham City and father of Andrea Beaumont.


Unfortunately, Beaumont made serious deals with the mob including Salvatore Valestra and his gang. With the years, Beaumont accumulated a big monetary debt with Valestra and his people, which eventually led to them threatening him and his daughter unless he paid the debt. Beaumont promised them to pay within one day, but knowing that he couldn't gather the money required, he took Andrea and forced her to leave Gotham with him, abandoning his home and business.

Carl and Andrea remained hidden for a few years, but Valestra eventually located him and sent one of his enforcers to eliminate Carl. His murder caused Andrea to turn into The Phantasm and started hunting and killing the Valestra mob.
