"Chuckie, Chuckie... you always were a loser."
Buzz Bronski, at Chuckie Sol's grave.

Charles "Chuckie" Sol was a mob boss who operated in Gotham City. He was the first gangster to be killed by the Phantasm.


Young Chuckie Sol

Chuckie Sol during his days working for Sal Valestra.

Chuckie Sol was a mob boss in Gotham City for many years prior to Bruce Wayne becoming Batman and was partners with Buzz Bronski, Sal Valestra and formerly Carl Beaumont. After Beaumont became involved in an incident where he owed a debt to each and every one of them, Sol and his partners paid a visit to house in order to get him to pay up. After Beaumont promised he would deliver to money to them in 24 hours, Sol and Bronski, assured Valestra to accept his offer. After leaving, Beaumont unexpectedly fled the country with his daughter, Andrea. Even after Beaumont eventually paid them all back, they still sent their own personal hitman after him, the man who would eventually become the Joker.

Years passed and Valestra aged, becoming less powerful in the underworld. Sol started his own crime organization, as did Bronski and their hitman.


Years later, Sol held a meeting in his office on top of his casino, the Shady Lady Casino, telling his men his plan to launder high quality counterfeit money on the casino floor. The meeting was interrupted by Batman, who took out all the goons in the room. Sol fled to the casino parking garage with his briefcase of counterfeit money, but found himself a new enemy: the Phantasm. After narrowly escaping, he tried to ram into the vigilante with his car, but he was blinded by the Phantasm's smoke. Before he could veer off, he ended up smashing through the parking garage's wall into the air and crashed into the upper floor of an adjacent building, instantly killing him. Witnesses who saw the incident from nearby buildings and walkways also saw Batman near the scene, after he had rushed to investigate the crash, leading many to assume that he was responsible for Sol's murder.


Shortly after his death, Sol was buried at Gotham City's graveyard. The epitaph of his gravestone read "May He Rest In Peace". One night, his old partner Buzz Bronski visited his grave, stating that Sol was "always a loser". Ironically, Bronski ended up being also killed by the Phantasm that night.[1]


The epitaph "May He Always Rest in Peace" suggests Sol had friends and family. It may have also been possible Chuckie Sol paid a funeral director to prepare the tombstone with that epitaph prior to his death.
