Angus Stanton (died November 2019) was a corrupt assistant district attorney in Gotham City who framed innocent individuals to close more cases. As a result, he was targeted and killed by the Executioner.


Corrupt activities

During Angus Stanton's life as an ADA in Gotham City, he became corrupt and involved in a scheme in which he convicted innocent and often poor inmates with the help of Detective Stu Donnelly and Judge Raymond Calverick. These inmates were sentenced to Blackgate Penitentiary and eventually executed.

At some point, Angus also prosecuted Jack Napier, a notorious criminal known as the "Joker".[1]

Targeted by the Executioner

In 2019, Angus was on the phone regarding a case in which he was prosecuting several people who assaulted a woman. Suddenly, his car got smashed by an electric pole and Angus noticed the Executioner staring at him. The masked figure then broke a fire hydrant, causing water to fall near the electric pole. Angus tried to flee and climb a metallic fence but was electrocuted to death.[1]


Sometime after Angus's death, his past crimes were exposed to the public by Batwoman. As a result, the district attorney and Judge Davis Wellington re-opened all the cases that were tainted by Angus and his co-conspirators' actions.[1][2]


According to Dana Dewitt, Angus was an honorable man who brought justice to the victims of some of Gotham City's most notorious criminals, with the citizens of Gotham seeing him as a hero. However, this was ultimately nothing more than a façade. In truth, Angus was a selfish, greedy, dishonorable and corrupt individual, as he and his co-conspirators, Stu Donnelly and Raymond Calverick, framed multiple innocent individuals for crimes they did not commit for personal gain in order to raise his reputation, with no guilt, shame or remorse for these despicable actions.[1]
