Synopsis for "Three Piece Suit, Part One"
Selina and Slam are on their way to dinner when Slam pulls over so that Selina can use an ATM Machine. While he waits for her, Slam watches a commercial for Three Piece Suit Insurance on a TV in an electronics shop window.
The person in line after Selina is a mysterious man with wooden arms and his right eye covered by a wooden nickel. She comes back to get the receipt she forgot and sees him using a wooden credit card to pull up the transaction history of "Catrina Dolares" (Selina's current alias).
The Wooden Nickel attacks her, transforming his arms into weapons, and they fight for some time, evenly matched, while Slam reads the paper inside his car. He knocks her out after shining a street lamp directly into her eyes. He then removes the wooden nickel from his eye to reveal a loupe, but he doesn't have time to do more than identify "Catrina Dolares" as Catwoman and caress her face before Slam shoots him. Slam fires his gun several times, driving the man off.
Selina wakes up inside Slam's car several hours later. They express amazement that the Wooden Nickel attacked Selina in broad daylight when she wasn't in costume and at the oddity of his movement. Slam got several photos before the Wooden Nickel knocked Selina out. Selina teases him for his "detective's instinct" ("pictures, then pistols"), and Slam teases her for calling the Wooden Nickel weird when she used to run with the Penguin and Killer Croc. The Wooden Nickel watches from above as Slam drives Selina back to her apartment.
Later, the Wooden Nickel is in a high-rise building conference room where three tattooed businessmen take him to task for drawing Catwoman's attention by going into her ATM account instead of simply surveilling her like they hired him to do. The businessmen hire the Wooden Nickel to follow supervillains' henchmen, who lead them to their looted money, and they're able to make money themselves that way as long as the Wooden Nickel does his job like he's told.
The Wooden Nickel believes that he has discovered the secret identity of Catwoman, but the businessman are skeptical. "Catrina Dolares" sounds too much like "Cat Dollars" for them to believe that is her real name. The businessmen are unwilling to give the Wooden Nickel the promotion he is after even though he has shown initiative, but they might reconsider if he can find out her real secret identity.
