Anarky is a super intelligent political activist/terrorist and enemy of Batman.
Anarky was created by Alan Grant and the late Norm Breyfogle.
Lonnie Machin was claimed to be the child of famed Batman villain Joker, and a Vegas show girl. Unable to care for Lonnie, he was given to a orphanage. He was a child prodigy and was adopted very quickly. Unlike most children his age, or adults for that matter, Lonnie took an almost obsessive interest in political and philosophical literature. This worried his adopted father do to the fact that Lonnie seemed to believe in the elimination of government, which he felt was infamously corrupted by multinational corporations.
At age twelve he built a stun baton and several smoke bombs and donned his Anarky costume. He began to kill several corporation chief executive officers, and spray painting the political symbol for Anarchy on their bodies. He was eventually stopped by Batman, who was surprised to see he was just a twelve year old kid. He was sent to a juvenile detention center. Lonnie eventually became an expert computer hacker. Using the screen name of "Moneyspider",and began stealing millions of dollars from corporations and transferring them to third world countries. Robin managed to discover who Moneyspider was and stopped Lonnie yet again. Lonnie would then invent a device that fused to the sides of his brain, giving him super intelligence.
Becoming Anarky once again, Lonnie set out to destroy Batman and Robin. While this happened he discovered he was adopted. This emotionally shattered Lonnie and allowed Batman and Robin to capture him yet again. Despite his generally criminal activities, Lonnie has occasionally helped Robin and the superhero team Young Justice fight villains like Darkseid and Klarion the Witch Boy.
