Fish Mooney may have bit off much more than she bargained for when she asked in last week’s episode of Gotham to see, ‘The Boss’. Because, it turns out that ‘the boss’ is actually Dr. Dullmacher aka ‘The Dollmaker‘, a really sinister criminal from the Batman Universe. To find out more about who ‘Dollmaker‘ is check out the bio below, and share your thoughts after the JUMP!

As a child, Barton Mathis went on several ‘hunting trips’ with his father. During these hunts, he watched as his father killed people and then cannibalized them. He would also witness his father being shot down by a young cop named James Gordon. After spending only a year in foster care, Barton disappeared for years before he resurfaced as the criminal Dollmaker. His mask is partially made of skin from his deceased father.
A Gotham City Serial Killer who creates “dolls” out of the skin and limbs of his victims. One night in Gotham City The Joker was being attacked by one of The Dollmaker’s “family” members, but is eventually killed by Joker. Later, after being caught by Batman and brought to Arkham Asylum, The Joker is visited by a mysterious visitor, who could be Dollmaker or possibly one of his family members. The Joker seems to be expecting this mysterious visitor and compliments him on his choice of location for the “procedure”. The two speak for a short while until the procedure takes place where the mysterious visitor cuts off The Joker’s face.
Dollmaker also kidnaps James Gordon and makes a mask made out of skin for him.
Dollmaker was also a behind-the-scenes antagonist in the Gotham episode “Selina Kyle”, where he had two people, disguised as charity outreach representatives, abduct children and ship them to him in Asia, presumably for experiments. Both attempts failed.
