Felix Faust is an evil sorcerer. In his elder years, Faust somehow communicated with Ghast, a powerful being from another dimension. A bargain was struck. If Faust could give Ghast freedom, it would bestow youth on Faust. Faust focused on stealing Zatanna's magic hat since it functioned as a mystic portal. He animated and transformed mannequins in the Gotham Fashion area of Gotham City. As he anticipated, Zatanna was among the heroes that responded to the incident. In an ethereal form, Faust waited until Zatanna was momentarily distracted. As she backed up onto a display, Faust emerged from a mannequin and stole her hat. He remarked it was a perfect fit then vanished before Batman's batarang landed. The transformed mannequins returned to normal and fell apart. Back at some castle ruins in the Hebrides Islands, Faust started casting a hex but was interrupted when several rabbits emerged from the hat. He continued with the hex unaware one rabbit was fitted with a tracker.
Zatanna got a ping on her Bunny Positioning System. With no time to waste, Etrigan summoned Merlin to teleport them to Hebrides in an instant. As they arrived, Faust finished his hex. A green pulse of energy shot into the maelstrom above the ruins. Ghast manifested. Faust inquired about his reward. Ghast turned to Faust and reached to his forehead and made him young again. He watched as Ghast flew towards a nearby town. He noted it was totally worth it even though he doomed the world. He attempted to gather his books and leave but Zatanna demanded her hat back. Faust taunted her and animated two statues. He continued to mock her, even to go as far as the old levitation trick. He remarked his kung fu was better than hers. Zatanna cast a spell, produced a seltzer bottle, and shot the hat off Faust's head. Zatanna sliced the last statue with rings then leaped into her hat. Faust was perplexed and picked the hat up. Zatanna emerged and decked him with an uppercut. Faust attempted to retaliate but Zatanna chained him up mid-spell. He gloated Zatanna had no idea how to return Ghast to its dimensional prison but to his surprise, she cast his hex backwards and it worked. He attempted to hop away while Batman, Zatanna, and Etrigan's backs were turned but he tripped and fell near the rabbits. He frowned and wondered why it had to be rabbits.
