Batman:The Animated Series Wiki

During H.A.R.D.A.C.'s reign of terror over the Cybertron company, its fifth created duplicant was Karl Rossum. He is a impostor.


H.A.R.D.A.C. created this robotic duplicant of Cybertron's CEO Karl Rossum with the purpose to replace the real Karl Rossum as the CEO of Cybertron, albeit H.A.R.D.A.C. most likely wanted to use this duplicant as "its puppet" to control the company itself. The duplicant was created after the real Rossum was left unconscious after being shot with a beam.

When Barbara Gordon infiltrated in Cybertron's factory to rescue her father James Gordon, the duplicant and Randa Duane subdued her and gave her to Gordon's duplicant to keep her to make Batman surrender if he came to rescue the captives. Once that Batman appeared on scene, he attempted to take out the captives from the cryogenic tank in which they were placed by the duplicants. The duplicant tried to fight the Dark Knight, but he knocked it against the tank, which broke and allowed the captives to be released. Wet and furious, the duplicant forever loyal to H.A.R.D.A.C. jumped to take out Batman, but he dodged it and by mistake, the duplicant ended up being electrocuted by Duane with a taser, exploding into pieces and knocking Duane aside.
