Kate figures that someone is trying to bust Shadow-Thief out of confinement or trying to kill him. Kate heads to the secret corridor within the courthouse where prisoners are transferred without being seen by the public. Kate finds Shadow-Thief at the mercy of Cheshire. Cheshire engages Manhunter and scratches her with poisonous fingertips. Kate starts to feel unbalanced because Cheshire's fingernails were laced with Black Mamba venom. Cheshire tries to scratch Kate again but Kate engages a magnetic feature on her bo staff which rips off Cheshire's fingernails. Cheshire reels in pain and escapes without Shadow-Thief. Kate puts Shadow-Thief back into custody and makes her getaway. Kate arrives on Dylan Battle's doorstep and tells Dylan what happened before she passes out. Dylan tells his prostitute to leave then runs to his secret stash of goods that he had acquired from his years of being a lackey for super villains.
