Ethan inspected him carefully. It had taken him several days to thaw the massive cube from around the man without destroying the integrity of his skin. He was a well built man, probably in his 40's. The muscles were well defined from obviously heavy training. It looked as if he stood about 6' tall with deep brown eyes. He would have been exceedingly handsome if he were alive. In all reality, dead he wasn't that different from many of the other specimens he had examined. At least not physically. Being found in a block of ice... well, that was different.

Ethan finished transcribing his copious notes and sent the man's now preserved body on to the museum. He turned his attention tot he few items found with the man. A black suit resembling that of a bat. A belt with an assortment of tools he hadn't seen in one collection before. The mask that covered his face. An odd grouping of items, to say the least. Another part of the case that drew him from retirement. He pondered the items and the body, trying to figure out how it all went together. "This," he hesitated, searching for the right word, "Batman certainly has me intrigued," he said to the security guards who had come for the body. He locked the morgue's door shortly after they left and headed home for a nice glass of hot tea before settling down with his findings.

  2. No... I have not been reading comic books. I believe I was chewing an ice cube.
