"I'm a decent guy. I would never put family on the street. But if you're not family... well that's somethin' else."
—Joe Pike to Bridgit Pike

Joe Pike was an arsonist and a member of the Pike family.


Working for Oswald Cobblepot

Joe, along with Cale and Evan, was sitting at the table when Selina Kyle and Butch Gilzean came to their residence on business. Joe questioned Selina as to why she was hanging with Butch, as he had shot Fish Mooney. However, after Butch offered the brothers an arson job, they reluctantly accepted it. After the death of Evan, Joe and Cale discussed whether or not they'd still do the job, with Cale pointing out they had no entry man, as they needed one to do the job. The two soon got the idea to make Bridgit their new entry man, and though she initially refused, Joe got her to agree to do so, after Joe threatened to kick her out. During Bridgit's first arson job, Joe and Cale waited in the van, with Joe guiding her via a radio. Later, at the Gotham City Book Depository Joe and Cale dropped Bridgit off to perform another arson job with Joe telling her to hurry up and get it done, as they had three more jobs to do that night. Soon after, Joe and Cale drove off once the GCPD came from around the corner announcing themselves. [1]

Capturing Bridgit

Afterwards, Bridgit separated herself from her brothers, working with Selina. However, they wanted her back and abducted her before she could leave Gotham.


Joe and Cale then threatened to kill her if she didn't do the "family business", and Joe said that if she messed up again he would kill her. While they were playing, Bridgit arrived in her suit and flamethrower. Joe mockingly questioned if she would kill them, and she said "yep". She then incinerated the brothers with her flamethrower, carbonizing them. When Jim Gordon and Harvey Bullock arrived, Joe was still barely alive and his last words were "Bitch", before being killed off by Bullock.[2]
