Ah, but we both know our play isn't over, Bruce. And ultimately I will emerge as the hero of our bitter comedy.
You've had your time on the altar. You've made this city into something that can work perfectly for you. I'm here to take it all away. Everything you've never deserved.
Thomas "Tommy" Elliot, also known as Hush, is a villain from DC Comics, appearing as an enemy to Batman and Batwoman.

He is the central antagonist and titular character of the Batman: Hush storyline.
In an alternate timeline where Batman saved his parents while traveling back in time, Bruce Wayne and Tommy Elliott were still friends as adults.
In the alternate timeline of the Flashpoint event, Hush is subsequently killed by Batman.

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 mission in the 2015 sequel Batman: Arkham Knight, (looking like Bruce Wayne) he enters Wayne Tower and puts a gun too Lucius Fox's head. Batman enters, removes his mask and reveals himself as Bruce Wayne. This doesn't change Hush's mind however, and he still attempts too kill Lucius. He is stopped by Batman by being smashed through a table, knooking him out. He was later arrested by the GCPD.
Like Batman, he was voiced by Kevin Conroy.
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.
A young Tommy Elliot appears as a recurring character 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, although later becomes Bruce's friend in season 4.
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.
Tommy returns in the fourth season, in which Bruce begins to socialise with the other rich kids of Gotham City, which includes Tommy himself. Tommy has been shown to have matured and changed in personality since season 1, and admits that he deserved his beating at the hands of Bruce, even stating that he should have been struck harder. The group later attend a nightclub in Gotham City, which Bruce buys and impresses his new friends. Tommy begins to socialise with Bruce more often, and attends a party at Wayne Manor, which is subsequently broken up by Alfred due to Bruce's erratic nature.
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.

He is later arrested and sent to Arkham Asylum.
