Batman:The Animated Series Wiki

Steven Carlyle was a psychologist and psychology professor.


Stephen Carlyle was a published psychologist and also taught criminal psychology at Gotham University and served as the liaison between Arkham Asylum's board of directors and the police department. He is currently divorced, and his ex-wife had gotten custody of the children.

Sometime later, Poison Ivy used him to get out of Arkham. She trapped him in the greenhouse behind his residence, and "married" a clone of him, as well as creating further clones of his childhood self to serve as her "stepchildren". Dick Grayson had once been a student of his and remembered that he sired two daughters. Although the information was trivial, it caused Batman to realize something was amiss. Robin and Batman then proceed to rescue the real Dr. Carlyle. They find him under heavy sedation in Poison Ivy's underground laboratory beneath the greenhouse.
