Between Arkham Asylum and Arkham Knight[]

Scarecrow was brutally mauled by Killer Croc at Arkham Asylum and planned revenge at Batman. For countless months, Scarecrow wanted to attack Gotham City and unmask Batman. Scarecrow came across the mysterious Arkham Knight who wanted to kill Batman and use an army. Scarecrow didn't want the Knight to kill Batman but both of them began an alliance. Deathstroke joined as well since he helped the Arkham Knight assemble the militia as he was the "toughest bastard who faced the Bat". Deathstroke had been chosen to oversee their campaign and serve as a backup commander if the Knight is done for.

Arkham Knight Incident[]

Late night on October 30th, Scarecrow's army made their first move. The Arkham Knight went to Pauli's Diner, with a bag containing five ounces of Fear Toxin. He let it out, fleeing before he could be affected. Scarecrow then made a public broadcast, demanding that all of Gotham's better citizens leave the city or he would detonate a bomb of his Fear Toxin. After a mass evacuation, the city was left with only Scarecrow's Army, GCPD and the Bat Family on Halloween.

Scarecrow allowed the gangs to do as they wished, not caring for their well being if he detonated his Fear Gas. Eventually, all members of the army were defeated and taken to GCPD, except the Knight, who became the murderous vigilante Red Hood.
