Electrocutioner, as he appears in Batman: Arkham Origins.

Electrocutioner a.k.a Lester Buchinsky is a brutal pit fighter and enforcer for the Penguin who is also one of the eight assassins hired by The Joker disguised as Black Mask to kill the Batman on Christmas eve.

Buchinsky is first encountered by Batman after tracking Penguin down to his ship the "Final Offer" and entering the fighters pit. Electrocutioner then enters the pit and begins taunting Batman and attempts to intimidate The Dark Knight with his trademark shockgloves. Batman, unmoved by Buchinsky's display, quickly and uncerimoniously knocks him out with one swift kick to the head, before leaving him to be taken into custody by the police.

The Electrocutioner, however wakes up and escapes the ship before the police arrive. Batman's butler, Alfred Pennyworth, manages to find a way to track a signal that the electrocutioner's shock gloves give off, allowing Batman to follow him to a meeting that the Joker is holding for all eight assassins at a suite in the Royal Hotel. Buchinsky attends the meeting but chooses to completely ignore his employers instructions and plays a game on his phone. The Joker, angered at the arrogant assassin's lack of attention and his failure to kill the Bat, shoots out a window behind Buchinsky and kicks him out of it sending him plummeting to his death.

Batman watches from a computer monitor as Joker murders the Electrocutioner and later discovers his mangled corpse. Batman then acquires his signature shock gloves, which later plays an important role in defeating both the Joker and his top assassin, Bane.

Batman: Arkham City

Electrocutioner II Arkhamverse 0001

The new Electrocutioner in the Arkham Knight prequel comics.

After Buchinsky's death, his prototype gloves were stolen by one of his old henchmen. The henchman kidnapped a scientist from Wayne industries and forced him to upgrade the gloves for him, only to return the favor by killing him. Shortly after the defeat of Joker in Arkham city (Several years later), Batman is ambushed by the new electrocutioner and briefly overpowered, but manages to defeat him by using his arrogance to his advantage. Shortly after, the Arkham Knight approaches the defeated Electrocutioner and kills him, presumably ending the legacy.



  • The Electrocutioner's appearance in the Post-Flashpoint continuity is based off his design from Batman: Arkham Origins.
