As the Network works to break the tide of criminal chaos a newly reborn Black Mask abducts the inmates of Arkham Asylum and everyone is questioning whether Batman is really dead. Tim notes that a new Batman was in Gotham and dons the cowl that Grayson refuses to wear to catch him. When Damian gets in trouble, however, and Grayson arrives to rescue him the two are in turn saved by the new Batman; who harbours no compunctions against using guns.

"Hnh. The dark knight strikes again."
