Batman rogue

Maximillian "Maxie" Zeus was a former shipping CEO turned supervillain.

History

Maximilian Zeus was the former CEO of Maximilian Shipping Company in Gotham City, when he suffered from pride and began to smuggle to the mafia in order to maintain his business. Then, he suffered a mental breakdown and fashioned himself as the supreme Greek God Zeus. His condo, stretching above Gotham was his Mount Olympus and he also began to brandish a prop thunderbolt that could emit an electrical charge. His aspirations pushed him over the edge.

Dubbing himself Zeus, he planned to steal the federal government's Electrical Discharge Cannon, attempting to assert Gotham as his private domain. Zeus was so deluded that not even his girlfriend Clio could completely convince Zeus to stop, but he soon met Batman, who he referred as Hades. Batman infiltrated Zeus' complex and tried to overload the cannon with Zeus' thunderbolt rod, who lept after it and electrocuted himself unconscious. He was later sent to Arkham Asylum, where he realized the place was the real Mount Olympus, teamed with his own pantheon of personae.

Continuity

  • It is interesting that Maxie Zeus would preceive Batman as Hades, considering that later Batman would actually have to fight Hades in "Paradise Lost".
