Tragic irony...

...or poetic justice?

You tell me.

My God, it's true.

Penguin Man of the sewer.

Odd as it may seem, Max... and I have something in common:

We're both perceived as monsters.

But somehow...'re a well-respected monster...

...and I am, to date...


Frankly, I feel that's a bum rap.

I'm a businessman.

Tough, yes.

Shrewd, okay. But that does not

make me a monster.

Don't embarrass yourself, Max!

I know all about you.

What you hide, I discover.

What you put in your toilet...

...I place on my mantle. Get the picture?

Is that supposed to hypnotize me?

No, just give you a splitting headache.

It's not working.

Oh, you big baby!

Just blanks.

Would I go through all this trouble

just to kill you?

No, Max.

I have an entirely other purpose.

I'm ready, Max.

I've been down here too long.

It's time for me to ascend... re-emerge...

...with your help...

...your know-how...

...your savvy.

I wasn't born in the sewer, you know.

I come from... you.

And, like you, I want some respect!

A recognition of my basic humanity.

But most of all...

...I want to find out who I am... finding my parents...

...learning my human name.

Simple stuff that the good people

of Gotham take for granted!


...exactly why am I going to help you?


Let's start.

Let's see what we have in here.

A batch of toxic waste...

...from your clean textile plant!

There's a whole lagoon of this crud

in the back!

It could have come from anywhere.

What about the documents that prove you

own half of the firetraps in Gotham City?

If there were such documents...

...that's not an admission...

...they would've been shredded.

Good idea.

A lot of tape and a little patience
