In other news, Chuckie Sol,

a made man in the Black Mask mob

was kidnapped at gunpoint

by masked assailants earlier today.

Suspicion is high that Sol was a victim

of the recent turf war

raging between the mob

and a new rival gang

composed of high-tech criminals

known to have crossed paths with Batman.

I don't know about any weapon shipment,

Tusk. Mask don't tell us...

You could do better than that, Chuckie.

We ain't got all night.

Old Electrocutioner here gets

mighty ticked when someone lies.

When is that weapons shipment due?

Wait... Batman doesn't use guns.

Batman doesn't.

But I do.

- I'm just the accountant.

- Shut it!

That's no way to treat a lady.

I could've handled these C-listers

on my own.

Dressing like a bat doesn't make you

a hero. It just makes you a target.

And using a gun makes you just like them.

I want you out of here. Now!


This wasn't a break-in. Was it, Firefly?

Of course not.

- They're working for someone new.

- Who?

This is truly an honor, Batman.

I've waited so very long for this moment.

Though the circumstances

are less than ideal.

Do I know you?

Intimately... and not at all.

And you rag on me for stealing your look.

Onyx, now.

Rest well, Batman.

It's not like he punches a time clock,

but I can assure you

that the Gotham Police Force is more

than capable of keeping this city safe.

Even without a masked hero to back us up.

You're a bad liar, Gordon.

- So, are on your way?

- Yeah, babe. You can't believe the traffic.

It's Blockbuster!

Can't wait to see you.

It's been weeks, Dick.

I've almost forgotten what you feel like.

I'll remind...

- It's... What's all that noise?

- Construction.

Hold on, I think I see an opening.

Yup. All clear, Kori.

I'll be at the tower in fi...

Babe, you have no idea

how sorry I am, but...

- But, what about our...

- Got a family emergency. Nightwing out.

Your timing really sucks, Alfred.

Well, your trip to the rainforest

seems ill-timed, Mr. Wayne.

- With the world tech summit coming up...

- It's not for another week, Ms. Bannister.

We're down here studying rare herbs

that could prove revolutionary

for medical research.

And earn millions

for our pharmaceutical interests.

All well and good. But why did you

have to lead the team?

Because it's my company.

And I can do whatever

the bloody hell I want to.

You still have to answer to this board,

Mr. Wayne. And frankly...

I think we're done here.

If any of you have further concerns,

bring them to Lucius.

He's more than capable

of handling things while I'm gone.

Oh, dear.

I'd watch those "bloody hells," governor.

Don't want to be giving yourself away.

Master Dick. It's bad manners

to sneak up on a person like that.

Sneaking up on people is kind

of what we do around here, Alfred.

That's a joke.

We are not amused.

I'm not exactly in a festive mood either.

- How long has he been gone?

- Two weeks, one day, 15 hours.

Wouldn't be the first time.

But he's never been gone this long

without notifying me in some way.

Last night, the signal was up for an hour.

Third time this week.

And if the police are aware

of his absence,

then you can be certain

the criminal class is as well.

There's already been a sharp uptick

in underworld activities.

If Batman doesn't return soon...

I know. All bloody hell's

gonna break loose.

Even when you've disappeared,

I can't get away from you.

Oh, Mr. Fox.

I think it's way past time we...

Apologies, Ms. Bannister. I have

an important visitor who simply can't wait.

- That woman!

- What's wrong, Dad?

Bannister's been barking at you for years.
