Batman (Bruce Wayne)
Ventriloquist (Arnold Wesker)


Batman finds some kids beating up a security guard and putting him on fire, only to discover they are high on a new designer drug called "Fever"; the police inform Batman where Fever is made, but the place is locked up so tight that the drugs are flushed away before they can ever get in; The Ventriloquist puts 2 men on 'trial' for losing $50K, kills one but allows the other ("The Fatman") to live by going to Mexico to smuggle goods back to Gotham; Batman breaks into the Fever stronghold and gets one of the pushers to give up the name Scarface.
