Max redeems himself

OK, he used to be a typesetter. I can kind of see why he'd get sucked in. Now he's using his powers for good.

My grandpa was a typesetter too, before he became a C.P.A. (the tax kind, not the imperialist kind). Family legend has it that before he was admitted as a full-fledged member of the typesetter's tribe, he was hazed. His colleagues threw a full tray of 12-point type on the floor of a dark room, locked him in, and wouldn't let him out until all the type was properly sorted - by touch. Can't say it's true, but it's a good story.
