In his first act as DA, he and Bruce were to dig the first shovelful of dirt in the construction of Stonegate Penitentiary.
Five years later, Harvey started dating Pamela Isley.
The excavation had involved bulldozing a field of wildflowers, including a rare wild rose that would have gone extinct, had she not saved it first.
One night, the couple were at a restaurant, waiting on Bruce.
It was there that Dent proposed to Isley, having falling so much in love, despite only knowing her for a week.
When the brawl ensued between Dent and Thorne's men, a freak explosion horribly disfigured the left side of Dent's body.
The trauma was powerful enough to force two of his personalities to mixed up, and left Harvey in a state where right and wrong no longer held any meaning.
Ivy told Harvey that he was still looking "halfway decent." Two-Face confessed that part of him wanted to strangle Ivy for poisoning him, while the other half desired to run her over with a truck.
This is where only two sides of Two-Face agreed with each other.When it's "Bad Heads", however, Big Bad Harv becomes more dominant to two face's body than Harvey can ever be.Yet, there always seems to be a piece of Harvey which is strong enough to linger within the mind of Two-Face when he is committing his ungodly acts. In subsequent episodes of the show, Two-Face became the supervillain he is in the comics.After the accident, he became a twisted vigilante known as "Two-Face" and soon began his own crusade to bring Thorne down, something the law deliberately failed to do.During his crusade, he framed Commissioner Gordon for taking bribes from Rupert Thorne with help from Gil Mason.A celebrated and brilliant lawyer, Harvey Dent was feared by Gotham's criminals and adored by the public.
