Bale Warner is a brand new character developed exclusively for the film. Warner was a celebrated geologist who was renowned for his study into the composition of Topaz. However, during a study into Topaz's piezoelectric charge, Warner was electrocuted, and was put into a coma for several years. It was found that his ventromedial prefrontal cortex was significantly damaged, and when he returned to his studies he was gently mocked for his accident. Due to the damage to his brain, his emotional response was skewed and he murdered one his co-workers by repeatadly punching his head and temple. After this, numerous rock samples started circling around his hands, which he threw at the rest of the people in the room, killing them. With his geokinesis now discovered, and his psychological state damaged, Warner adopted the pseudonym of Orbit, and became a threat to anybody who mocked him. His super strength, durability and control over rocks led him to one of the most dangerous people in Batman's rogues gallery.
Story writer George Alder decided to create a new, female interpretation of Killer Moth. This version's real identity is Abigail Becker, a paraplegic roboticist who developed a powered exoskeleton that allowed her to move quickly, carry heavy loads and also fly using a pair of mechanical wings built into the exoskeleton. The original Killer Moth's signature weapon, the cocoon gun, has been retained as this version's primary weapon, and she also carries chlorine grenades. She wears a military MCU-2/P gas mask to prevent the inhalation of the chlorine gas her grenades disperse, as well wearing it to protect her identity. It is unknown what caused Abigail to become a paraplegic, as it is known it is not due to any congenital disorders and was gained later in life. However, it has been rumoured that this will be explored in the final film of the trilogy, which is known to be a prequel.
