Two-Face quotes are bound to appeal to die-hard comic book fans

Harvey Dent, best known as Two-Face, is a well-known supervillain in the DC universe.

Two-Face is one of the main adversaries of the superhero Batman. Despite his eventual downfall into a life of crime, Two-Face starts off as a respected District Attorney of the fictional Gotham City.

Harvey Dent is neither good nor bad. In fact, he represents the duality present in all of us.

When he loses his faith in humanity, he turns into Two-Face. He uses his lucky coin to decide who he wants to kill and when, depending on which side the coin lands on. Harvey Dent turns into Two-Face because gang mobsters threw acid on his face, driven insane by his own reflection.
