Also, Jonathan's first target after he leaves the farmhouse is Arkham Asylum, where he mind-screws the abusive Warden Reed into shooting the other staff who'd mistreated or neglected him while institutionalized.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Hypocrite}}: Tabitha calls Barbara's BoomHeadshot of Butch a betrayal, while conveniently ignoring that she and Butch were plotting the same thing against Barbara. Not to mention that Tabitha getting involved with Butch while already being involved with Barbara was pretty insensitive in the first place, considering that when Butch and Barbara first met, Butch threatened to rape her. She has a similar grudge against Penguin, while Zsasz points out that Tabitha personally murdered Penguin's mother.
