Bob the Goon was one of the Joker's top henchmen. He was considered his right hand man, but that didn't stop Joker from killing him when he had to vent his frustration because of Batman foiling his caper.[1]

Powers and Abilities




Bob has at least "street level" knowledge of firearms, as he has been seen using guns for his crimes.

Bob also has basic skills in Hand-to-Hand combat.


As a marksman and organized crime gangster, he obviously possesses a number of guns.

Bob has at least one knife he uses, as he was seen with one and dropped one during a fight with Batman.


  • Bob the Goon never appeared in the Super Friends series, however an action figure of him was made by Toy-Biz for their DC Comics Super Heroes action figure line.
  • Bob the Goon is best known for his appearance in the Batman film from 1989, starring Michael Keaton and Jack Nicholson.
  • Bob the Goon made his first (and so far only) DC Comics appearance in Batman: The Official Comic Adaptation # 1 (1989).[2]


  1. This is conjecture based upon the '80s Batman film. In the movie, Joker shot and killed Bob, but that was a different continuity, and on Earth-1A we can only just speculate the same was the case.
