Batman: Arkham series

See: Hush (Arkhamverse)

Hush made an appearance in the video game Batman: Arkham City during a side mission; he was another serial killer who has been killing people inside Arkham City by cutting off their faces in order to graft a replica of Bruce Wayne's face onto his own. He returns in a side activity in the 2015 sequel Batman: Arkham Knight

The Batman

Hush was originally going to be featured in a planned DTV set on the animated series The Batman, along with that universe's versions of Riddler, Catwoman, Joker, Clayface, Mr. Freeze and Penguin. The project was later scrapped by DC and WB. There is some sketch art of Hush in Legions of Gotham. Hush was also going to be introduced in the episode "Rumors", written by Joseph Kuhr. DC didn't like the idea, and the villain Rumor (voiced by Ron Perlman) was created in his place.


Tommy Elliot Gotham

Younger Tommy Elliot in Gotham.

A young Tommy Elliot appears in the Fox television show Gotham, which acts as an origin series to characters appearing in the Batman franchise. He appears in the eighth episode of season 1 titled "The Mask" as a classmate and enemy of Bruce Wayne.

When Bruce Wayne returns to his private school on the urging of his butler and guardian Alfred, he is approached by Tommy Elliot and a friend of Tommy's. Although Tommy acts well meaning at first, he takes a sick fascination in the recent murders of Bruce Wayne's parents Thomas and Martha Wayne and begins to ask details, which causes Bruce to leave in disgust, much to Tommy's amusement. Later on in the day Tommy mocks Bruce's mother, causing the pair of them to get into a fight although Tommy gains the upper hand as he uses his friends to back him up. When Alfred learns of the attack and Tommy disrespecting Martha's memory, he decides to teach Bruce to stand up for himself. He takes Bruce to Tommy's residence, where he gives Bruce his father's watch. Bruce wraps the watch round his knuckles and punches Tommy repeatedly in the face, managing to bring him down. Bruce and Alfred then leave together to have pizza, leaving Tommy on the doorstep bleeding and sore.

This depiction differs from how Hush is normally portrayed in the comics and other media. Although still disturbed, he does act like Bruce Wayne's friend and they were childhood friends, whereas in the series he is outright hostile towards Bruce and appears to have a dislike for him.

He will return during the fourth season of the show.


Hush appears in Batman Unlimited: Mech vs. Mutants, voiced by Dave B. Mitchell. He appears as an inmate at Arkham Asylum who claims he doesn't belong there and needs to be released to an uncaring Penguin, who just walks by him.

Both Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill has teased about doing a Hush animated movie.
