She describes her Bruce Wayne as "a bit of a Great Gatsby figure," throwing parties at Wayne Manor that he doesn't like to engage in. And she populates his world with future villains of Gotham, including future Joker, Jack Smith, Bruce Wayne's best friend — until they both meet a latina Selina Kyle.
