Storyline: Film Freak reinvisioned his film - he was now the lead character. He then killed his cameraman. Selina woke up from a nightmare where she was riding Smart Bomb and he was shot down. Ted Grant was knocking on her door: Holly had been arrested for the murder of Black Mask. Lenahan, the man who pegged Catwoman for Black Mask's murder, didn't believe the woman they had in custody was the same Catwoman. Police got word that two cops had been killed by a falling building while chasing a man who'd stolen a pack of gum from a convenience store. Selina got into costume when Ted refused to call in the JSA. She left him with the baby and headed out. She found Slam passed out drunk in his office. He had no one left on the force that could do him a favor. Film Freak killed a taxi driver, then broke into STAR Labs to break out a giant gorilla.

Selina wanted to help it. She swung down and landed on the beast as the SWAT team got the order to fire. She was able to get a canister of knockout gas into its mouth and leap to safety. Slam was thrown out of a bar and wandered into an alley. He thought back on the day he got out of the hospital. Sam and he discussed Catwoman and the murder of Black Mask. Film Freak stopped by and made fun of him before wandering off. The next morning, Selina, Holly, and Karon discussed the previous night's events. Realizing all happened out of movies, Selina knew it was Film Freak's work. Film Freak scored a bomb.

While rambling on about movies, Film Freak tossed a grenade at the motorcycle gaining on them. Film Freak took his new accomplice, a critic, into a warehouse. Inside was a former astronaut holding a glowing briefcase. Karon got the riddle - each of the films he mentioned ended with a nuclear bomb. Catwoman got onto the roof of the van as they moved the Uranium-235 into it. They wheeled the bomb into an old movie theater and Film Freak murdered the critic. Catwoman told Holly to get suited up and meet her there. Selina walked up to the stage as the Film Freak continued on about his movie. The bomb counted down. She beat the crap out of him, then began working on the bomb. Holly arrived in time to see her disable the bomb. They headed back home where Slam - all bloodied up - was holding his granddaughter.
