Ten-Eyed Man 01

Ten-Eyed Man, real name Phillip Reardon, is a villain appearing in the Batman comic series by DC Comics.


A veteran of the U.S. Special Forces in Vietnam, Reardon had been nicknamed "Three-Eye" Reardon when a grenade fragment left an indentation scar on his forehead. Upon leaving the forces, Reardon took a job as a security guard at a warehouse in Gotham City. Attacked by a gang of thieves one night, and disoriented by a blow to the head, Reardon staggered onto the scene of an impending explosion at the warehouse vault. Arriving on the scene, Batman assumed he was a thief, and Reardon took him for one of the thieves. The two struggled, and were caught in the explosion of the vault.

Both men were left blinded, Reardon permanently. An underworld doctor named Engstrom performed radical experimental surgery, connecting Reardon's optic nerves to the sensory cells in his finger-tips, in effect giving his fingers both touch and sight. Reardon blamed Batman for his loss of sight, and became a recurring villain for the Dark Knight.

Finally, the Ten-Eyed Man was killed during the Crisis on Infinite Earths during the merging of realities by a shadow assault on the city.
