Spice was Two-Face's "bad" moll, appealing to Dent's bad side. She represented the bad girl stereotype in contrast to her more seductive and kind partner Sugar.

Biography

Not much is known about her except that she was a love interest and henchwench on Two Face's bad side while Sugar was on the good side. When The Riddler tracked them down at Two Face's hideout, he showed his new mind box to him and demonstrated its capabilities on Sugar and Spice, with the Riddler and Two-Face stealing part of her IQ and promised that he would help them solve "The greatest Riddle of all, the mother of all Riddles: who is Batman?" in return for helping him steal production capital and place boxes all over Gotham City.

They formed an alliance and hid out at Riddler's hideout at his factory called Nygmatech where he developed a strong mind device to drain knowledge from the citizens of Gotham.

While the Riddler (under the identity of Edward Nygma) and Sugar were at the Ritz Gotham showing them his new improved box, Two Face, Spice and his thugs broke in and started robbing the guests only to be stopped by Batman.

After finding out from the Riddler and Two Face that Bruce Wayne is Batman, she becomes part of a trap for the Dark Knight.

The Riddler invites Batman to his lair after capturing Dr. Chase Meridian (Bruce's girlfriend) and then Robin. He tells him that he knows who he is and if they can truly co exist. Sugar suddenly appears and pulls down a curtain on a glass cylinder to reveal Chase. Spice appears and pulls down the curtain of the other one to reveal Robin.

The deranged Prince of Puzzlers gives the Caped Crusader a choice to rescue Chase or Robin but he distracts him by giving him a riddle of his own long enough for the Dark Knight to destroy the mind device and warp the villain in the process.

As the lair explodes around them Sugar and Spice make their escape. What happened to them after that is unknown, but the novelization says that they disappeared from Gotham forever to avoid capture, while Two Face is killed and the Riddler is taken to Arkham Asylum.
