Catwoman catches up to Trickster; she wants the papers that will allow her to reclaim he stock proceeds! But Trickster lives up to his name, with several bogus copies. Then he tells her Carlino is hopping mad Selina Kyle is still living! He plans to make the hit himself when she shows up at the bank the next day, as she must, to contest the SEC's actions. And he plans to ruin Catwoman's rep! The next morning, a body slams into Carlino's car; Catwoman claims she has murdered Selina (but actually she just obtained a similar body from the morgue). Then she goes after Trickster, because she knows he got in the bank and redirected her money. She discovers that he did not steal it, but directed it to the Gotham Relief Fund. He has to be very careful to keep his "karmic balance" positive following the events of Underworld Unleashed. She finds she's okay with that, gives him a kiss and leaves. Stealing Manhattan didn't work out as she'd hoped, but she did learn some things about herself. And Trickster learned some things about her, too...
