To all the innocent dead, I say this -- you died for ideals. For politics. For religion. Because somebody told you that your country means more than you do -- that ideas matter more than life. You were cheated! But you have not died in vain. The demise of the elites is at hand. I will show the world where it went wrong!
I believe in the absolute freedom of the individual. I believe that the present order must be abolished. I believe that the voice of the people must be heard,...listened to,...and obeyed!
Anarky is a super intelligent political activist/terrorist and enemy of Batman
He was created by Alan Grant and the late Norm Breyfogle.
Lonnie Machin was claimed to be the child of famed Batman villain Joker, and a Vegas show girl. Unable to care for Lonnie, his mother left him at an orphanage. He was a child prodigy and was adopted very quickly. From a young age, Lonnie took an almost obsessive interest in political and philosophical literature. Lonnie embraced the philosophy of anarchism, and advocated the violent overthrow of all governments in favor of complete individual freedom.
At age twelve he built a stun baton and several smoke bombs and donned his Anarky costume. He murdered several corporation chief executive officers, and spray painted the political symbol for Anarchy on their bodies. He was eventually stopped by Batman, who was surprised to see that his foe was only a child.
Anarky was sent to a juvenile detention center. Over the years, he became an expert computer hacker. Using the screen name "Moneyspider", he began stealing millions from corporations and transferring the money to third world countries. Robin managed to discover who Moneyspider was and stopped him yet again.
Anarky would then invent a device that fused to the sides of his brain, giving him super intelligence. He set out to destroy Batman and Robin.
Despite his generally criminal activities, Lonnie has occasionally helped Robin and the superhero team Young Justice fight villains like Darkseid and Klarion the Witch Boy.
