Gotham: Victor Zsasz

Victor Zsasz is a serial killer and a villain of the Batman. Normally he does his killing with a knife and then makes a tally mark somewhere on himself for every victim. Like many DC villains, he’s an epic sociopath who has spent time in the renowned Arkham Asylum amongst other figures such as: The Joker, Harley Quinn, Bane and Black Mask.

Zsasz is true sociopath raised with money and wealth. His parents died in a boating accident when he was twenty-five leaving him all of their money. He wasted all of it betting in a Gotham casino to Oswald Cobblepot/The Penguin. At this point he grew very depressed and eventually became a criminal serial killer which landed him  in Arkham Asylum. He counts his kills as small victories. He is a sociopath through and through having zero regard for human life and has an epic compulsive need to kill others. There are no patterns. He enjoys killing has no motive much like the Joker in this attribute. Killing is a hobby or a passtime to him.  He was even in Nolan’s Batman Trilogy depicted by Tim Booth in a cameo role in Batman Begins. Zsasz was also in the 2009 video game Batman: Arkham Asylum but most recently was in FOX’s Gotham as a main character. He is hired to apprehend Jim Gordon for Don Falcone. In Gotham he is portrayed by Anthony Carrigan.

His performance was truly spine chilling. It gave me goosebumps. I hope to see him again in the series.
