Just like when he's locked in Arkham, surely he will just be listed as "John Doe" or "Name Unknown." Doesn't know what his real name is, etc. Or perhaps there was a mass breakout at Alcatraz and very few were captured.

But y'know what? In the end there would be some sort of record of him. Unless he was born in a forest, killed his every family member, and never went to school.

"We want to see the newest things. That is because we want to see the future, even if only momentarily. It is the moment in which, even if we don't completely understand what we have glimpsed, we are nonetheless touched by it. This is what we have come to call art." -Takashi Murakami
