    No recent wiki edits to this page.

    Armond Krol was the mayor of Gotham City. A hard line politician, Krol often criticized Commissioner James Gordon for his leniency when it came to vigilantism-particularly, his reluctance to bring down the cowled crusader known as Batman. Krol's attitude towards the Batman changed however, when the Batman saved his life after being imprisoned inside of a dungeon filled with water. It was shortly after this incident that Bruce Wayne was injured following an assault by the criminal Bane and was forced to relinquish the mantle of the Batman to a surrogate - Jean-Paul Valley. Jean-Paul was a brutal combatant, known for hospitalizing and at times even killing his adversaries. Krol, unaware that this Batman was not the same man who once saved his life, publicly championed Jean-Paul's actions. As it turned out, James Gordon, who was once the Batman's largest supporter, now decried the actions of this new Batman and the bitterness between Krol and he intensified. Armand Krol soon removed Gordon from his position as Gotham's police commissioner and replaced him with Gordon's wife, Sarah Essen. Krol's political career came to an end when he lost a re-election campaign against mayoral prospect Marion Grange. A short while later, global Eco-terrorist Ra's al Ghul released a deadly virus called the Clench in Gotham City. Armand Krol was one of hundreds of people who contracted the virus and died in his penthouse soon after.
