Synopsis for "Jungle Cat"
Catwoman infiltrates the South American nation of Ochoguay in search of a village called Esperanza that could provide her with leverage over Galiant's agency, allowing her to cut her ties with it once and for all. After a rocky landing in Ochoguay's jungles, Catwoman saves a young trucker from Marxist guerrillas, and pays him to take her to the village, which turns out to be a refuge for fugitive Nazis - most of whom are old and infirm.
Shortly after Catwoman's arrival, the village is stormed by the vengeful guerrillas (one of whom had overheard Catwoman's destination before getting beaten unconscious). A shootout between the aged Nazis and the guerrillas ensues; in the confusion, Catwoman spirits away the man she'd been searching for: a Nazi named Peter Klosc. Some of the guerrillas try to give chase, but are run over by the trucker, who had returned out of gratitude to Catwoman.
With herself and her target both safe, Catwoman reveals Klosc's importance: he was the Romanian war criminal that Galiant's agency had attempted to clear with the Boccatoria gambit. Catwoman records a personal confession from Klosc and sends a copy to Galiant's agency with an ultimatum: her time with them is to be cleared, without any repercussions, or she will send copies of the confession to whistleblowers around the world and publicly disgrace the U.S. government.
Left with no better alternatives, Galiant's agency reluctantly disassociates with Catwoman and resets her criminal record. A gleeful Catwoman returns to Gotham, vowing that from now on, no authority - not even the Batman - will be able to catch her.
