Occupation: Former Professor/Criminal
Base Of Operations: Gotham City/West Coast
Maxie Zeus is reportedly a former professor of Greek
Mythology and a foremost expert on their history and
culture. Some unexplained events led Zeus to leave the
academy and turn to crime. It was about this time that his
wife either left him or died and Zeus took to raising his
daughter Medea alone. He quickly amassed a following,
perhaps as a result of his charismatic personality. With
Gotham's underworld in constant turmoil sparked by the
comings and goings of masterminds like the Joker and the
Penguin - Zeus was in a position to climb to the top.
Maxie Zeus led the criminal underworld for some time until he came to the Batman's attention. After some altercations Zeus eventually left Gotham. Conceding defeat, he relocated to the West Coast and concentrated on new schemes.
