His oversized ego badly bruised, Arnold swore to ruin the Society's efforts and bring attention to his own genius. With the help of a brain stimulator of his own devising, Arnold increased the size of his intellect, in addition to his brain and skull, casing turning him into a deformed figure. Using his newfound extensive knowledge, he built a series of devices he used to attack the pageant's ruining the society's celebrations and causing panic in the streets. His crimes brought him to the attention of Batman and Robin.
