The Dark Messenger of Mercy wiki last edited by viritys on 02/14/14 04:37AM View full history

Writer Len Wein and artist John Calnan introduced Bruce Wayne's new executive, Lucius Fox in this issue of Batman. Handling the foundations day-to-day transactions, Fox freed up Wayne's schedule for more Dark Knight duty. With his business in the hands of a man with the Midas touch, Batman pursued a killer who placed poisoned gold coins over his victims' eyes.

Batman discovered the "coin killer" Limehouse Jack was Quentin Conroy, whose rich father had abandoned his family for the streets. Unhinged, Conroy employed his patriarch's coin collection to become a dark messenger of mercy.

Note: This issue contains the Hostess Superhero Ad, Superman in "An Unbeatable Power!"
