Hamilton Hill is the mayor of Gotham City.

Physical appearance[]

Hill is a middle-aged Caucasian man with gray hair, brown eyes, and a gray walrus moustache. While on safari in India, he wore a brown leather jacket over a light grayish green button-up shirt with khaki-colored pants. He also wore a biege slouch hat with a brown band, which completed his outfit.

After he was attacked by a gorilla, his photo in the Gotham Truth Rag depicted him in a suit with a bandage around his head and his right arm in a cast and a sling.

Hill went on a hunting trip to India, hoping to shoot an Indian tiger. He rejected support from local guides, as he dismissed them as superstitious. Without them, he tracked the animal down, but as he lined up the shot, the tiger was captured by the Brain instead. Monsieur Mallah attacked Hill and his drivers for discovering their plot. He survived, and the media had their fun with the claim that he was attacked by a "guerilla gorilla".[2]


Background information[]

  • This is his third animated appearance. His counterpart in Batman: The Animated Series was considerably more competent. He also appeared in the final season of The Batman, and was mentioned in a newspaper in Batman: Under the Red Hood.
