The False Face Society is a new gang in Gotham City. They are led by an unnamed leader.


When Ryan Wilder first donned the Batwoman suit, she encountered several members of the False Face Society with the Snakebite drug, theorizing that they had information on the whereabouts of Alice. New to the workings of the suit, Ryan narrowly beat them in combat and gained information that Alice may be in the sewers, leading her to investigate.[1]

The gang drew the attention of Crows Security by selling the drug Snakebite in Gotham; research done by the Crows learned that the drug dealers are led by a man with a black mask.

Meanwhile, Batwoman stopped an addict of obtaining the drug from a gang member.[2]

Later, a child trafficker, Candice Long, kidnapped Kevin Johnson and sold him to the False Face Society.

Batwoman interrogated a boy addicted to Snakebite to find out who is his drug dealer; when she does, she chases him with the Batmobile and captures him. Ryan later defeated Candice and she was arrested by the cops.

Rudy, a member of the gang, used the announcement about Kate Kane's disappearance to lure her father, Jacob Kane, to him, later trying to incite newcomer Kevin Johnson to kill Jacob in order to prove himself to the gang. He failed when Batwoman came on the scene and defeated him along with the other members present, saving Jacob and Kevin.[3]
