Detective Frank Tanaka sat at the table waiting for the guards to escort Miss Wicked to the room. He had interrogated Ro-Babylon for two hours but got nothing useful from him. The robot had told him how Quantum Cat freed Aaron Moro from his cell, about Aaron's daily activities and the super villain's past. Most of this info Frank had already known or was just useless information. Plus, he didn't exactly trust a robot who was co-programmed by Aaron Moro.
Miss Wicked was escorted in the room, wearing a chained straight jacket and a biters mask. At Frank's insistance and Warden Amelia Kincaid's approval, the guards removed the jacket, then chained her handcuffs to the solid table, before removing the biters mask. An anti-magic rune was placed on the table, near Frank, out of Miss Wicked's reach.
"You think that rune will protect you?" Miss Wicked snarled at Frank. "I'll eat your heart."
Frank ignored her threats. Looking at her dossier, he said. "Wormwood Wierdly Wicked!" he looked at Miss Wicked, smiling. "No wonder you go by Miss. Your parents must have hated you."
"Hatred? I was nurtured by hatred." Miss Wicked said, licking her lips, revealing her pointed teeth. "My mother raised me in a convent of witches. My father was the Great Beast. The King of the Goats."
"So your mom did it with a goat?" Frank replied, raising his eyebrow. "You have a weird family."
"Make jokes all you want, Pig." Miss Wicked replied, looking furious. "When I leave here I'll roast you like a pig."
"You're not going to leave here, Wormwood." Frank said. "As a registered super villain you are considered a threat to national security. No lawyer or judge can get you out."
Miss Wicked laughed. "You think I care about man's laws?" she said with fire in her eyes. "Clockwork Brigand will lead the Feared Horde and the League of Crime on an assault on this prison. He will free me."
"First of all, neither the Feared Horde nor the League of Crime are led by your boyfriend." Frank said. "Old Evil Eye leads the League of Crime and the Feared Horde is led by Gold Shark, who basically does Old Evil Eye's bidding. You think that old demon cares about you? It took him four years to bust Aaron Moro out, his own right hand man. You're no Aaron Moro."
"It doesn't matter." Miss Wicked replied. "My lover, Clockwork Brigand, will come for me by himself if he has to."
"Didn't he abandon you on the island surface, after you lost to the Indomitable Few?" Frank asked.
"He will kill you all for me." Miss Wicked said, standing up, her eyes blazing as fire light rose from her throat. The anti-magic rune began to shake and glow. "Our love is unstoppable!"
"Yeah, about that." Frank said, pulling an envelope from his trenchcoat, taking out some pictures and sliding them over to Miss Wicked. She picked them up. The pictures showed the top hat wearing cyborg, Clockwork Brigand, getting physical with a snake woman.
"Her name is Rosy Boa, sister to the Boa Brothers. She was a low ranking member of the League of Crime." Frank explained. "She was just promoted. Replaced your position in the Feared Horde. As well as a few other positions in Clockwork Brigands bed."
Miss Wicked screamed.
Frank Tanaka leaned on the back of the ferry, looking at Alcatraz. Miss Wicked had given him all the info he needed on the Feared Horde and the League of Crime. She had vowed to murder Rosy Boa and make Clockwork Brigand pay. Frank had almost expected the anti-magic rune to explode, it had grown so hot.
He took out the pictures of Clockwork Brigand and Rosy Boa. He wasn't sure how Red Cap had obtained these but the cunning, little goblin had his ways.
Frank tossed the pictures into the bay.
Miss Wicked sat in her cell. She stared at the wall. She could hear the Boa Brothers hissing at each other through the walls.
"Misss Wicked." Hypno-Snake hissed.
Jack Asp started laughing.
She could feel the anti-magic runes in the walls.
