"The Laughing Fish"Edit
The Joker causes fishes to bear his likeness, but threatens to kill a copyright official when he learns that he cannot lay claim to them. Batman suspects that Silver St Cloud has guessed his identity, but neither mention the issue when he confronts her. The Joker orders Boss Thorne to leave Batman alone, scaring him witless as he is still afraid of Hugo Strange's ghost, and prompting him to flee Gotham. Batman fails to prevent the copyright official’s death. Then, Thorne picks up Silver from the roadside when her car breaks down while she was attempting to sort out her feelings for Batman, and Bruce Wayne.
