Batman found a dead body with his face cut off. Batman found a nearby civilian who told him that Bruce Wayne killed the man. Batman found two more victims with the similar death causes. A thug came nearby and Batman interrogated him that Bruce Wayne was at a hideout. At the hideout, Batman realized that the killer known as the Identity Thief was actually Bruce Wayne's childhood friend, Dr. Thomas Elliot, the surgeon. Elliot changed his look, DNA, and voice that made him look like Bruce Wayne. Elliot left as he confronted Batman later.
