  • Sid the Squid. Last time we saw him he was just a small-time crook who had been jailed after accidentally nearly killing Batman and surviving the aftermath when Batman appeared to be dead (namely people coming to try and beat him up to take his place as the toughest guy in Gotham, Joker not taking Batman's death well, and Rupert Thorne believing he was trying to take over his territory when he tried to get his help to escape the city), and with a disproportionate reputation out of it. Now he's rich thanks to using his reputation and good character to open a bank for the mob and a union for henchmen while balancing himself on the thin and dangerous line between the mob and the Rogues.

    Batman stared at her. Harley pouted.
    “Oh, like you’ve never gotten lucky in any of your adventures!”

  • Lois Lane moderating the mayoral debate. She starts by pulling out the questions the candidates wanted her to ask...and setting them on fire. And then notes that the topics she was asked specifically to avoid have "piqued my interest."

How well does it match the trope?
