Joe Chill is one of the minor antagonists in Batman: The Brave and the Bold.
He is voiced by Peter Onorati.
Joe Chill was a Gotham criminal that started out in the gang of Lew Moxon. The Moxon gang tried to rob the 3rd Annual Charity Gala of its donation money. Thomas Wayne and Matthew Malone, two attendants, put up a fight. Chill grabbed the nearest bystander, Martha Wayne, and threatened her with his gun. Wayne and Malone used nearby kitchen knives to knock a hanging bat prop on top of the criminals. Chill managed to get away while the rest of the gang was arrested. He then daringly visited Moxon at Blackgate Penitentiary and offered to square his cowardice by getting revenge on Thomas Wayne and his family. Moxon accepted and ordered Chill to make it look like an accident to avoid incrimination. On one fateful Christmas, Joe Chill ambushed the Wayne Family while they walked home from a screening of "The Mask of Zorro." He demanded Martha Wayne's necklace. When Thomas Wayne stood up, he was shot dead by Chill. He then shot and killed Martha, and left their son, Bruce, alive.
Bruce Wayne's life would never be the same and he grew up to become Batman. He never knew the name of the shooter but remembered his face. Over three decades later, Batman learned from a dying mob boss, Lew Moxon, that the name was "Chill." After the Phantom Stranger and the Spectre showed Batman several aspects of the past, Batman returned to the Batcave and ran a search. Joe Chill was now an arms dealer known to sell to super villains on the black market and a sale happened to be going on that night. With Mr. Freeze, Penguin, Joker, Two-Face, Mad Hatter, Poison Ivy and Solomon Grundy present, Chill attempted to sell the Sonic Disrupter as a sure way to kill Batman. During the bidding, Batman arrived and went after Chill. Chill soon cornered himself in an office room with Batman. Chill was horrified when Batman revealed his secret identity. Batman then proceeded to beat up Chill. With Phantom Stranger and Spectre trying to influence the outcome, Batman spared Chill.
Chill ran back to the super villains and revealed he was the one who made Batman. They were enraged and started to beat him to death when Batman stopped them. In the battle, the Joker and Batman set off the Sonic Disrupter and caused the roof to collapse. Unsatisfied with Batman's decision, Spectre made sure Chill was standing where the most debris would fall. With his final breath, Chill remarked at the irony of everything and died.
