Biography

Original multiverse

Corrupt activities

Raymond Calverick worked for years with ADA Angus Stanton and Detective Stu Donnelly to convict prisoners to the Blackgate Penitentiary's death row to raise their reputations, regardless of whether or not they were innocent.[1]

Assassination attempt by the Executioner

In 2019, Calverick was targeted by the Executioner, who assaulted him in his office, but Batwoman managed to save him. In the end though, Calverick past crimes were exposed to the public, leading for him to be arrested, convicted, and disbarred.[1]

Anti-Monitor Crisis

During the Anti-Monitor Crisis, Calverick as well as everyone in the multiverse except for the seven Paragons, was killed in an antimatter wave by the Anti-Monitor on December 10, 2019,[2] only to be restored a month later, after the Paragons and the Spectre created a new universe.[3]

New multiverse

Calverick's past crimes were exposed to the public by Batwoman, causing him to be disbarred. The district attorney and Judge Davis Wellington re-opened all the cases that were tainted by Calverick and his co-conspirators' actions.[1][4]

Personality

According to Jacob Kane, Calverick was a heroic individual and a pillar of justice in Gotham. However, this was ultimately nothing more than a façade. In truth, Calverick was selfish, greedy, dishonorable, and corrupt, as he and his co-conspirators, Angus Stanton and Stu Donnelly, 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 immoral actions.[1]

Abilities

  • High-level intellect/Master lawyer/Political acumen: Calverick's experience with the legal system enabled him to successfully sentence virtually every criminal and innocent victim he wrongfully prosecuted.[1]
