To me, Scarecrow is one of the most perfect villains for Batman, certainly much better than the more recognized Penguin. Batman Begins made the perfect case for the villain. Like Batman, both characters thrive on inflicting and manipulating fear in others. In this BTAS debut for Scarecrow, the underrated villain was able to find some cracks in the previously invulnerable Batman and we got solid look at the motivations and fears of the Dark Knight.
I guess one of Scarecrow's failings is his lack of physicality. On the other hand, I guess he really isn't meant to pose any sort of physical threat. I just don't find him even scary to look at. I think they had the right idea when designing the character for The Batman, even though the design was never used. Still, this is one of Batman's rogues which has a lot of untapped potential. Its just a shame he isn't used more.
