A three-part story begins in Detective 587 (June 1988) by Wagner, Grant and Breyfogle, which sees the introduction of two new villains for Batman.


Batman spends much of this issue hunting down a drug dealer, while we also follow Derek Mitchell, an escaped felon who seeks revenge on a man named Kadaver, whom he blames for his time in prison.


Towards the end of the story, Mitchell chooses to hide in a hazardous waste dump, and then gets hit by lightning.


Batman and the police believe him to be dead, but this is a comic book, and of course he survives and emerges with powers, in this case a destructive dissolving ability, turning him into the Corrosive Man.
