Capturing Mister Shadow

In an alternate 2019, the Anti-Vigilante Task Force led by Laurie Blake set up a sting operation to capture a costumed adventurer named Mister 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 revealed 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 from death.
