    After a string of robberies, Batman managed to trace the thefts back to the gangs meeting place. Although guarded by automated mannequins equipped with guns, Batman single handedly arresting the entire team, minus Erik, who returned to the club. Batman realized that the butler must be behind it, and returned to the pereginator's club and fought Erik. Noting that Erik possesed a high level of strength, Batman beat him none the less, and then arrested both Erik and Edward.

    During the forming of the plan Erik Hanson took on the identity of Facade. As Facade, Erik wore a gray and red suit, finished by a mask made from a reflective material.
