Signalman appears in 94 issues.
Phillip "Phil" Cobb was a gangster with big ideas and a big opinion of himself. He came to Gotham City intent on hiring a gang of his own and making it big, only to be laughed at when he tried to recruit the gang because he had no reputation. Steaming with anger, he vowed to prove himself to Gotham's mobsters, and when he noticed how modern day society was regulated by signs, signals and symbols, he saw the inspiration for his criminal career. Becoming the Signalman, he went on a spectacular crime spree using those signs and symbols as his motif. Revealed as Arkham inmate in Batman Confidential #21.
