Quote1 Even I was shocked when I saw how Maxie Zeus was treated! Quote2
The Riddler src
Maximillian "Maxie" Zeus was a gang leader with an intense God Complex who ran his operations from his nightclub, the Gotham City Olympus.

Zeus' crime and madness earned him the attention of Batman, who defeated him and brought him to Arkham Asylum to deal with his mental condition. In Asylum, Maxie Zeus found no rehabilitation as he was victim to continuous shock therapy treatment at the hands of Quincy Sharp. After one too many rounds of this painful torture, Zeus simply disappeared from the Asylum, leaving many to believe that Sharp and the Arkham staff had gone too far and killed him, silently disposing of the body. Some time afterwards, the Arkham Staff sealed the wall to his room- leaving the strange Greek and Egyptian symbols Zeus had scrawled on the walls in place. The Riddler would later make the room the answer to one of his riddles, and Batman was forced to find and detonate the wall hiding Zeus' room in order to locate and capture Nigma.

When Hugo Strange quarantined off part of the city as "Arkham City", Zeus' old nightclub, the Gotham City Olympus, was located on the property. While Batman never entered the club or investigated it, the fact that the club was powered on and appeared to be running functionally may imply that Zeus was not killed and merely escaped the Asylum.


  • Buisiness Management: Maxie Zeus' night club, The Gotham Olympus is shown to well funded and thriving, even in Arkham City.
