Quote1 You need me to make sure everyone knows you and the rest of your former underwear clown support group aren't guilty. So I think I'll sit here and enjoy this cigar while you save the girl. Then I'll take all the credit, and the people of Blüdhaven will know it's cops who protect them, not some punk from Gotham. Shawn will be let off the hook. And you slink back to your bat-buddies knowing Bludhaven is the kind of city that puts you on billboards and throws ya to the wolves. The best part about it? I'm on the clock. And you? You're a superhero. You're doing this for free. Quote2

Back to BlüdhavenEdit

Investigating the murder of Robert Chapman and already listing Shawn Tsang as their prime suspect, she is visited by Nightwing, already critical about his potential in stealing their jobs though relinquishes the fact it'll take a while. Nightwing informs her that not only she has the wrong person but also is missing a few clues from the crime scene.[1] Although stubborn, she finds that Nightwing is correct. Previous cases she's work on that went unsolved had the same fate happen to the victim: deliberate turns to the head. She enlists the help of Defacer to catch the real killer and later Nightwing.[2] She assists Nightwing in taking down James Nice, having figure out that he was the killer from past crime. Shooting one of his mirrors and mixed with one of his technological weapons, he is permanently scarred in his face.
