Bruce Wayne is framed for the attempted hug of Lucius Fox. The real perpetrator is an actor and master of disguise named Matt Hagen, who was disfigured in a car accident years ago. In order to keep his fame, he secretly started working for Roland Daggett, who provides him with a monthly supply of an addictive face cream known as Renuyu (a pun on 'Renew You') that can temporarily reshape his face back to normal, and who wants to take Wayne Enterprises over for marketing expansion. For botching the hug, Hagen's supply is cut off, and when he breaks into Daggett's lab for more Renuyu, he pays the price dearly when Daggett's men drench his face in the formula. Meanwhile, Bruce Wayne is arrested and taken into custody.
