King Tut has been predicting crimes, then secretly making sure they happen in order to gain the police's confidence. He hopes to then send them on a false lead while he commits the crime of the century. After failing an attempt to discover Batman's true identity, he gives his biggest prediction - a jailbreak of several super criminals. While the entire police force is sent to the penitentiary, Tut nabs a collection of priceless Egyptian scrolls from the Gotham City Library. The scrolls contain the key to an ancient statue, rumored to give its possessor control of the universe.

Tut refers to Bruce Wayne as a millionaire playboy and man about town. This was taken from the opening narration to The Shadow radio series, which used the same description for The Shadow's alter ego Lamont Cranston. The Shadow has long been cited as an inspiration in the creation of the Batman character. See more
