Doctor Stanton was the chief counselor at Gotham Youth Counseling Center.
Dr. Stanton's dedication to help troubled teens of Gotham led him to ignore his own son Kenny. This led to Kenny adopting a new guise: that of "Payback". Kenny hoped that by scaring the bullies into better behavior, kids would have less problems and his father would have more time for him. Payback was foiled by Batman, and Dr. Stanton took full responsibility for neglecting his son.
