Synopsis for "Measure for Measure"
After Batman halts the beating of a down on his luck numbers man named Pat Dyerson at the hands of 2 of the Penguin’s bookies, Detective Renee Montoya asks the Dark Knight if it is just a personal vendetta against Cobblepot. The following day, the Penguin is in court trying to stop the sale of the building he is headquartered in to Bruce Wayne. The Penguin’s lawyer states that Wayne is buying the building simply to evict Cobblepot. The attorney declares Wayne blames the Penguin for the death of Jeremy Samuels, a former Wayne employee, and states that Wayne views the Penguin as a symbol of the thing that brought down Bruce’s parents all those years ago. Shortly after the judge rules in favor of the sale, the Penguin targets Bruce’s attorney outside a restaurant. Batman then determines the next target to be Judge Bach who is booked on the 8:50 train upstate. At the station, Batman notices Dyerson boarding the same train that is carrying the judge as well as 2 of Penguin’s men. Realizing the thugs were a diversion, Batman boards the train and prevents Dyerson from unwittingly delivering an explosion, nestled inside a briefcase, to the judge. Later, after admitting to Gordon that his vendetta against the Penguin was more vengeance than justice, Batman delivers the winning numbers to Dyerson and 49 other people, practically bankrupting the Penguin.
