Tony Zucco is a Gotham City crime boss.

Physical appearance

Zucco is a caucasian man with a lean face and high cheekbones. His hair is black. He has a small gap between his incisors, and liked to chew on toothpicks.

At least once, he wore a dark blue suit with a white shirt and red tie, and a wide rimmed fedora.[2]


Early life

Tony Zucco ran a protection racket and tried to extort money from Jack Haly. After Haly refused, Zucco had his men sabotage the circus rig on April 1st, 2006.[3] The victims of this revenge were the Flying Graysons on the trapeze act. Dick Grayson, the youngest, lost all his family, and eventually became Batman's partner in crime-fighting, Robin. One of his first acts in costume was to bring Zucco to justice.[2]
