Hector Melendez was a police officer with the GCPD.
After being transformed into a Man-Bat, Hector Melendez found himself to be insatiable. Discovering that he could potentially kill somebody, Hector was relieved when the Batman stopped him. Deciding to be the partner of a fellow supporter of the Batman, Hector found that there were few, but found a good partner in Nancy Strode. With Strode, Hector fought the Scorn and was nearly killed.
