Batman’s rogues gallery features an eclectic range of villains who push The Dark Knight to his limits. Few have tested him like Ra’s Al Ghul, a man with complicated motives and a warped sense of justice. Helped by the mystical Lazarus Pits, Ra’s seeks to bring balance to the world through any means necessary. Ra’s desire to create environmental balance is juxtaposed against his quest to wipe out humanity. This clashes with Batman’s ideals, causing them to be locked in an ongoing struggle. But what sets Ra’s apart from other villains is his genuine respect for Bruce Wayne. The Comic Vault is looking into the history of the Demon’s Head to understand what drives him.
