Synopsis for "The Everywhere Man"

John Marlowe is a close friend of Bruce Wayne. He is known as an introverted scientist and inventor with a passion for art. After being away on a quantum technology research funded by the government, Marlowe reappeared as a highly sociable and proud character who is willing to spend a lot on expanding his art collection.

It is an attempt to steal a painting from this collection that brings Batman into contact with the Everywhere Man. When the robbery was botched, Everywhere Man eluded Batman and vanished inside a broom closet. The next art robbery happened at the Gotham Museum of Art, where a group of Everywhere Men toyed with Batman and Robin. The pair deduced that they had been dealing with a gang of thieves who were all wearing identical costumes that created the illusion of only one perpetrator.

Further investigation revealed that Marlowe had created the Quantex, a device that could duplicate objects, including people. He had used the device on himself to expedite his research. This first duplicate developed free will, subsequently imprisoned the original Marlowe and took his place. The duplicate then created the identity of the "Everywhere Man" and began stealing things using the device to both create a "gang" to commit the crimes and to leave a copy of the stolen item behind.

The original Marlowe was freed by Batman and Robin, who then tricked the bulk of the Everywhere Man duplicates into turning on the first duplicate. In the chaos, Marlowe was able to recover the Quantex from the first duplicate and subsequently erased Everywhere Man from existence. Marlowe returned his art collection to the Museum of Art and was not held responsible for the crimes that were committed by his duplicates.
