Harvey Dent made his first appearance in Detective Comics #66 (August 1942)
Two-Face is a super-villain obsessed with duality and the number "two." He is an enemy to Batman in Gotham City. In his private life he was Harvey Dent, Gotham's district attorney. The mobster Sal Maroni burned his face with a bottle of acid during trial. His psychosis leads him to believe that right and wrong don't matter, as everything is ruled by chance. To prove this, he makes decisions of good or evil based on the flip of a special coin. This makes him highly unpredictable as a criminal mastermind. He has been a member of the Injustice Gang and the Injustice League.
Based on the number of work on Ao3, Bruce Wayne/Harvey Dent is the most popular pairing to include Harvey but it is rare in Batman fandoms. Harvey is also rarely paired with Edward Nygma (The Riddler) and Rachel Dawes, his Nolanverse love interest.
