Ventriloquist and Scarface

Alter Ego: Arnold Wesker
First Appearance: Detective Comics #583

DC needs to be put on trial for some of the lameness that it has unleashed upon the comic book world. And when the evidence is presented, the Ventriloquist and Scarface deserve to be exhibit A and B.

Basically the Ventriloquist and Scarface are a bad twist on a Twilight Zone episode, as Arnold Wesker believes his dummy is alive and causing him to commit crimes. This headache-inducing pair has been featured in comics, cartoons, and video games.

Apparently some writers either really think these characters are interesting or they’re just sadists who enjoy torturing their audience.
