Dick Tracy Wiki

Pinhead's terrorist disguise


Pinhead was a criminal in Dick Tracy's city. He had a disproportionately small head and dark hair.

In the aftermath of the September 11th, 2001 terrorist attacks in the United States, Pinhead decided to use the fear of terrorism to his advantage. He planted on a car bomb on a bridge that nearly killed Lizz and Junior Tracy, and made a public statement (while in disguise) announcing his terrorist intentions.

Pinhead then assembled a gang of other criminals with unusually-shaped heads. Their plan was to create a terrorist panic, then rob a bank while the city was closed down. Their scheme was uncovered by Dick Tracy, who stopped the attempted robbery.

Pinhead escaped with his accomplice Noodles and he adopted an old disguise of a woman with large hair. Pinhead was then recognized by FBI Agent Mahoney, who took him and Noodles into custody.
