Incident Reports[]

Arkham City Incident[]

Denning volunteered to join the strike team operating undercover in Arkham City. He and nine other members of the team infiltrated Penguin's gang. Unfortunately, the team's cover was blown by Hugo Strange during one of his interviews with Penguin and they were taken hostage, where they were subjected to random beatings and torture inside the Museum, specifically the Iceberg Lounge.

Denning, along with Officer Southwold, are taken to the Iceberg Lounge when Batman infiltrates the Museum. Once outside the lounge, The Penguin comes on the intercom and forces Batman to listen as he freezes Denning's hand and shatters it with a hammer.

After Batman disables The Penguin's gun and kicks him off the ice tower, The Penguin detonates multiple explosive charges placed around the tower. He presumably escaped before Penguin detonated the sculpture.

He is later identified as the injured officer on the ground by the exit of the museum. If you speak to Officer Jones multiple times he will state that Denning was injured when the ninja escaped. He has both hands at this time as well.

After Arkham City Incident[]

When the GCPD stormed the mega prison the undercover cops were rescued Denning included.
