Synopsis for "Honor Among Thieves"
When a Wayne Enterprises employee named Lisa Newman goes missing, along with an experimental regenerative drug, Bruce Wayne hires the Riddler to find Newman and the drug as a private investigator. The Riddler finds a reformed Harleen Quinzel and asks for her assistance. After being shown a photograph of Lisa Newman, Quinzel states that Newman suspiciously resembles someone at the women's shelter where she resides. Following her discussion with the Riddler, Quinzel finds the woman at her shelter, who admits to Quinzel that she is Lisa Newman and that she stole the drug for a profit. Newman injects herself with the drug in order to kill Quinzel. Newman is transformed into a monstrous being as Harleen Quinzel retreats. Newman is about to kill Quinzel until the Riddler sneaks up behind Newman and knocks her unconscious with a dumbbell. Newman is taken into police custody as she is dubbed "Scylla" by Harleen Quinzel. Sometime after, a sample of Scylla's blood is delivered to DeSaad, who plans on using it to create a new breed of warriors. After spying on the Riddler, Batman tells Robin that he used his Bruce Wayne persona in order to test the Riddler. Batman wanted to know if the Riddler would deliver the drug back to Wayne, or return to his life of crime and attempt to steal the serum.
