Professor Pyg targeted Preston for his company's role in an oil spill in the Gulf that killed a lot of marine life. Knowing Preson would book a suite at his favored establishment, the Gotham Arms, Pyg planned an attack in conjunction with two breaches of other buildings, the Gotham City Stock Exhange and Larby's Distribution Center. After being drove over the Sprang Bridge to the Arms, the Preston's checked in with the manager. Pyg drove right into the lobby and cornered the family. Batman tried to intervene but was knocked out by an explosion. Preston tried to offer money to Pyg but Pyg held them at gunpoint. He ordered Preston and his wife to walk off the ledge of the roof to serve as an example for their son. Batman came to and saved the family. As Batman left the scene, the son watched in admiration.
