Minhkhoa “Khoa” Khan [ 1 ] is the Ghost-Maker, a vigilante who trained with several of Batman ‘s mentors around the world. A equal of the Dark Knight since his youth, he is a free radical crime champion who will not hesitate to kill if deemed necessary and sees crime-fighting as an art quite than a duty.
Minhkhoa Khan was the son of a affluent Singaporean business owner in the exports industry. His family was physically threatened until they sold their company to the uber-wealthy Midas crime syndicate. Determined to destroy the Midas family and make them feel the worthlessness they tried to push on his parents, Khoa set off to become a crime-fighter and get revenge. [ 2 ] Khoa ‘s goals caused him to cross paths with Bruce Wayne as they trained with many of the lapp mentors, and the two struck up a friendship. however, their connection became puree after Bruce told Khoa that the argue he wanted to become a crimefighter was to avenge his parents ; purportedly angry that he was doing it for aroused reasons and not for the art of it, Khoa attacked him. [ 3 ] [ 4 ] [ 5 ] Over the years, Khoa would fight Bruce many times as their paths crossed during their journeys ; Bruce would later claim that once he turned 20 years old, he won these fights every time. One of these fights occurred after Khoa followed Bruce to Dublin and clashed over the right to learn from Tommy Tivane, the worldly concern ‘s greatest knife-thrower. Khoa besides seemed to have harmed a reciprocal chief in Morocco, souring their friendship further. [ 6 ] He later trained with the Desert Kings in the Gobi Desert for two months ; when Bruce went there the following year, he followed him and tried to initiate another battle. Bruce rejected him, as it was the anniversary of his parents death and he wished to be entirely, but finally relented after Khoa claimed that this sentimentality made him weak. [ 3 ] Despite his nature and their disagreements, Khoa was concerned for Bruce and stopped him in Argentina before he left back for Gotham City in a last undertake to appeal to him. Khoa implored him to realize that there is no manner he can save everyone, and that operating with this singular concentrate would finally wear his soul down to nothing. He asked Bruce to rather join him in southeast Asia where they would systematically destroy criminal underworlds, offering to do the same to Gotham once they had the resources. Disgusted with Khoa ‘s mentality, Bruce warned him not to come to Gotham and Khoa agreed, as he had no interest in the city ; in return, it was agreed that Bruce would not step foot where Khoa was operating. [ 5 ] Taking the name “ Ghost-Maker ”, Khoa followed through with his design ; largely operating within Southeast Asia, he would spend a year taking down criminal operations in whichever city he went, leaving a massive torso count and no trail for authorities to discover him. While function in Singapore, he would finally cross paths with Bruce ( nowadays operating as “ Batman ” ) when he tracked down a Gotham criminal who had fled there. Batman begrudgingly agreed to allow the latter to handle the condemnable, per their agreement ; on the way rear, Bruce would confide to his protégé that although he was still angered with Ghost-Maker ‘s selfishness, he besides missed being friends. He late tracked down Ghost-Maker and offered him a position within Batman Incorporated, but this enraged him and resulted in another fight. [ 4 ] finally, Khoa obtained his long-awaited revenge on the Midas family by taking down Madame Midas, the family ‘s current head. As he defeated her, he repeated the same gloat words she had told him the day his family was attacked. [ 2 ]

Fighting for Gotham
After the Joker War, Ghost-Maker broke the treaty in arrange to step into Gotham as its new defender, disappointed in how Bruce handled its criminals. He activated his Ghostnet to absorb and analyze all the network infrastructure of Gotham ‘s criminal underworld, and begun processing an action design to dismantle it. He soon found that a new vigilante was his main obstacle in applying this plan — a adolescent named Bao Pham, going by the alias of “ Clownhunter “. Given the fact the boy was besides a pitiless killer whale endangering civilians, Ghost-Maker chose him to be a emblematic victim for Bruce to realize his mistakes. [ 6 ] Upon his arrival, Ghost-Maker killed all of the Grinners, a gang of Joker supporters, at their headquarters called the “ Smile Bar ”. He then located Clownhunter while the latter was trying to blow up Harley Quinn ‘s apartment ; Batman came to the boy ‘s rescue and the two engaged in combat. Bruce explained that Bao is a adolescent who witnessed his parents being killed by the Joker five years before ( a murder that Harley was stage for ), and that he would quite rehabilitate him than kill or imprison him. Disappointed that Bruce had not changed, Ghost-Maker tranquilized Bruce, Harley, and Clownhunter and trapped them in a room of Arkham Asylum, leaving only Clownhunter unrestrained in order to force Bruce to handle him. however, the plan did not work as Harley managed to break through to the adolescent by explaining her resolve to atone. Batman related that although it was genuine that not everyone can be saved, caring for people like Harley and Bao allowed them to get better and make a deviation. Although Batman has come close to death many times and his work would credibly never be done, he believed the success he has had with rehabilitating people over the years prove that empathy has its place. [ 5 ] Satisfied with Bruce ‘s answer for the clock being, Ghost-Maker initially intended to leave, but Bruce believed he would need help in a rapidly-changing Gotham and asked Ghost-Maker to stay with him — equally long as he does not kill. Seeing it as an interest challenge, Ghost-Maker accepted. The two began tackling the mysterious reemergence of Scarecrow and a radical transhumanist movement in Gotham called the Unsanity Collective, all while evading targeted aggression from the city ‘s new Peacekeeper program. [ 7 ] [ 8 ] To this goal, Ghost-Maker had a high-tech base built within Gotham, which he designed to top the original Bat-cave ; he christened it “ The Haunt ”. [ 9 ]
