Reggie Harris (died March 16, 2020)[1] was a small-time criminal in Gotham City and a former inmate of Blackgate Penitentiary. He was framed by Miguel Robles and the Crows for the murder of Lucius Fox.

Five years later after helping out an also wrongfully imprisoned Jacob Kane, Reggie was able to get a new trial to prove his innocence. Soon after his release from prison however, Reggie was killed to once again cover up the truth about Lucius' murder.

Biography

Original multiverse

Early life

Reggie Harris was raised in Gotham City by his grandmother.[1] As an adult, he entered a gang and started to operate as a petty criminal.

Framed for Lucius Fox's murder

In 2015, Reggie went inside Sip&Dash to buy some chips and listened as a man bragged about his son. After someone knocked him out, he awakened with a gun in his hand and Lucius Fox's blood on his body;[1] thus he was arrested by the Crows for allegedly committing said murder and sentenced to Blackgate Penitentiary as he was framed by Stu Donnelly, Angus Stanton and Raymond Calverick, who managed to corrupt a Crow agent to destroy evidence convincing the jury that the cameras in the interrogation room weren't working at the time Harris was interrogated.[2]

Anti-Monitor Crisis

During the Anti-Monitor Crisis, Reggie 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,[3] only to be restored a month later, after the Paragons and the Spectre created a new universe.[4]

New multiverse

Meeting Jacob in Blackgate

In 2020, after Jacob Kane was sentenced there too for the alleged murder of his wife Catherine Hamilton-Kane, Reggie placed a knife into his meal and tried to provoke him to start a fight. However, the former commander didn't fall for the trick and left. Later, Reggie tried once more to harass Kane during his daily phone call with his daughter ordering him to move, which he did, dropping the phone in defiance.[5]

A few weeks later, when Chuck Dodgson attacked Jacob Kane in Blackgate's showers, stabbed him and violently beat him, Reggie intervened, preventing him from killing Jacob, thus saving his life, stating that he was more useful to him alive as he was close to being released.[6]

Trial and Death

The day of his post-conviction hearing, Judge Davis Wellington accepted his appeal for a new trial setting Reggie free until that date, causing him to exult along with his lawyer Bobby Reeves.

That night, after shopping for dinner with his grandmother, Reggie was approached by Luke Fox outside his home. After sending the woman inside, Harris was asked by Luke why he killed his father, to which he explained that he didn't, stating he was used as a scapegoat for someone who was probably rich enough to cover-up everything. While saying this, Reggie was shot by a sniper and was killed in front of Luke's eyes.[1]

Legacy

Due to Reggie's death, Luke Fox became convinced that there's a conspiracy behind his father, Lucius Fox's death and that the real killer is still at large.[1]

Luke eventually managed to discover his father's real killer, Miguel Robles, and confronted him at Wayne Tower when Robles planted a bomb underneath the building. After learning the reason why Robles killed his father, Luke considered killing Robles, instead of handing him to the authorities who wrongly accused Reggie. However, he was talked out of it by Kate Kane and the two managed to save Robles, handing him over to the authorities, and avenging both Lucius and Reggie's death.[7]
