Mister Shadow had been on the FBI's radar due to his repeated violation of the Keene Act. The Anti-Vigilante Task Force led by Laurie Blake set up a sting operation to capture Shadow by leaving him an anonymous tip about a bank robbery at a branch of the National Bank in Washington, D.C. As the Task Force proceeded with the fake bank robbery with Blake holding up a hostage at gunpoint, Shadow crashed through the bank's front window and attempted to stop the "bank robbery". Blake reveals to him that the "robbery" was a trap for him and that he's under arrest for vigilantism. Realizing his mistake, Shadow attempted to flee but was shot by Blake in the back. Shadow's body armor, however, protected him for death. Shadow is later strapped to a gurney and is handcuffed by Blake as a crowd of people vilify her with one bystander demanding to know why she's arresting him and calls him a hero, while she responds "He's not a hero! He's a fucking joke." Senator Joe Keene would later visit Blake thanking her for arresting another masked vigilante.
