Character Description: Simon Trent

Simon Trent was an actor who was the lead in an old television series called "The Gray Ghost", which was a favorite of Bruce Wayne (who would later become Batman) during his childhood. After the series was canceled, however, Trent had trouble finding other work, mostly because he was typecast in a role that had resembled the Gray Ghost. As a result, Trent was forced to near-poverty, having to sell treasured props from the show in order to survive. Strangely enough, he DID save videotapes of the Gray Ghost episodes, which were thought lost in a fire long ago.

Years later, when the person that Trent was selling his props was using them in an attempt of blackmail Gotham City by building them into bombs, Batman had sought out Trent, even taking him into the Batcave. Although Batman thought it was Trent that was doing the blackmailing, Trent realized the identity of the true culprit, and aided the Dark Knight by capturing him. Later, the episodes that Trent had saved would be instrumental in financing a new future for the washed-up actor, as they were copied for a new generation to enjoy.

A word of note: the voice actor of Simon Trent, Adam West, portrayed Bruce Wayne/Batman in the campy 1966 movie, as well as the ABC television series that had ran for three years.
