Max Shreck was the C.E.O. of Shreck's Department Store. Shreck soon decided to create a power plant for Gotham City. However, there was a flaw in the power plant which he knew about and ignored. The power plant instead of supplying power drained it. Shreck knew of this and planned to steal money from the citizens of Gotham. Selina Kyle over heard this and Shreck killed her by pushing out of a window. However, Selina revived and killed Shreck as revenge.
