Jack Ryder, known by his alias the Creeper, is the supporting character of Batman: The Animated Series, debuting in the episode "Beware the Creeper!"
He was voiced by Jeff Bennett.
In the episode "Beware the Creeper", he anchors a live TV special on the Joker's career from Ace Chemicals, where the Joker douses Ryder with his laughing gas and then pushes Ryder into a vat of chemicals. The gas and the chemicals transform him into the Creeper. The Creeper then goes on a crusade against the Joker to avenge himself (he is the first person that the Joker ever describes as a 'lunatic'), while frequently being sidetracked by an infatuation with Harley Quinn and his own stream-of-consciousness rambling. Eventually, the Joker is so rattled by the Creeper that he begs to be arrested by Batman to be free of him. Batman manages to use a skin patch to suppress the Creeper and informs Ryder he can still salvage his career. After Batman and Robin leave, Ryder thinks the situation over and removes the patch. Ryder begins chuckling, which soon becomes the Creeper's signature laughter.
Powers & Abilities
The Creeper possesses superhuman strength, stamina, reflexes and agility, and is a powerful, if disorganized, hand-to-hand combatant. He has a very powerful healing factor allowing him to recover from even deadly wounds quickly and with no apparent ill effect.
