Plot

Carlino understands that his family's candidate Murty won't get elected because Catwoman will cheat to win the election. All his assassins failed because they don't think like a thief. Fortunately, he knows someone who does... The Trickster. Catwoman checks out her roof before returning home and discovers the villain setting up surveillance gear. She learns he's being paid to bring down Selina Kyle's mayoral campaign, and offers to help him get the gear inside Selina Kyle's apartment - a delaying action at best. Then things start to go bad. Finnian of the SEC freezes Selina's accounts in conjunction with an investigation of her stock market activity, and someone plants a story that she's Catwoman! She's sure its Trickster, and she's right. As Catwoman, she confronts him and he apologizes for making her life difficult. Warning him off, she conceives a new plan. She visits mob boss Carlino and tells him his new plan: she will kill Catwoman for him...
