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.

Four 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 post-conviction hearing and temporary 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 born in Gotham City and raised by his grandmother.[1] As an adult, he joined a gang and started to operate as a petty criminal.[2]

Framed for Lucius Fox's murder

In 2015, Reggie went to Sip&Dash to buy some chips and listened as Lucius Fox bragged about his son. Suddenly, someone knocked Reggie out and he awakened with a gun in his hand and Lucius' blood on his body.[1] Thus, Reggie was arrested by Crows Security for allegedly committing the murders of Lucius and a Sip&Dash clerk. He was framed by Detective Stu Donnelly, ADA Angus Stanton and Judge Raymond Calverick, who convinced the jury that the cameras in the interrogation room weren't working at the time Reggie was interrogated and managed to corrupt a Crow agent into destroying evidence. Reggie was subsequently convicted and sentenced to Blackgate Penitentiary.[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

Reggie and Jacob Kane at Blackgate.

In 2020, after Jacob Kane was also sentenced to Blackgate for the alleged murder of his wife Catherine Hamilton-Kane, Reggie placed a knife into his meal and tried to provoke Jacob 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 by ordering him to move. Jacob did, dropping the phone in defiance.[5]

A few weeks later, Reggie was mopping the floors nearby as Jacob and Sophie Moore were meeting with "Ethan Campbell". When Chuck Dodgson attacked Jacob 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.

Reggie and his grandmother approached by Luke Fox.

That night, after shopping for dinner with his grandmother, Reggie was approached by Luke Fox outside his home. After sending his grandmother 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 died.[1]

Legacy

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

Luke eventually managed to uncover his father's true murderer, Miguel Robles, and confronted him at Wayne Tower when Robles planted a bomb underneath the building. After learning why Robles killed Lucius and how he covered it up, Luke considered killing Robles instead of handing him to the authorities who wrongly accused Reggie, but was talked out of it by Kate Kane. Robles and all his co-conspirators were arrested, avenging both Lucius and Reggie's deaths.[7]
