I should never have

allied myself with a madman.

where are they?

in Sarajevo, sir.

And he has the boy.




wow, that looked like it really hurt:


whoa, now, hang on.

That looked like it hurt a lot more:

So let's try and clear this up, okay,


what hurts more? A?

or B?


or backhand?


A little louder, lamb chop.

i think you may have a collapsed lung.

That always impedes the oratory.



Now, that was rude.

The first boy blunder had some manners.

I suppose I'm going to have

to teach you a iesson... you can better follow

in his footsteps.

No, I'm just gonna keep beating you

with this crowbar.


Where is the detective?


He's on his way.

But, sir, he won't make it there in time.

okay, kiddo, i gotta go.

it's been fun though, right?

well, maybe a smidge more fun for me

than you.

I'm just guessing

since you're being awful quiet.

Anyway, be a good boy.

Finish your homework and be in bed by 9.

And, hey...

...please tell the big man i said, "Hello."





MAN 1 :

The hell you say.

You didn't set this up?

-Then whose party is this?

-i thought it was you east-side losers.

You already rolled over for the Black Mask

and i figured you were gonna ask us in.

Rolled over? The Mask whacked

six of my crew in a month. Six.

Some of my best people.

So you set up this meet?

No, i thought it was Chi Chi:

wasn't my meet:

oh, the hell with this. I'm gone.

You brain donors wanna hang around--

MAN 2:

Sit down, Freddie.

it's my meeting.

it's him.


we didn't do nothing.


well, we all know that's a lie.

-who the hell are you?

-Smoke him.


i said, "Sit down."

You wanna die?

There's easier ways to kill yourself.

Yeah, like yelling at the guy

who's hoiding the AK-47.

Listen to me,

you drug-peddling scumbags.

i will be running the drug trade

from now on.

You eight are the most prosperous

street dealers in Gotham.

I'm offering you morons a deal.

You go about your business as usual,

but kick up 40 percent to me.

A much sweeter deal

than the scraps Black Mask is leaving you.

in return, you will have total protection

from both Black Mask and Batman.

But you stay away from kids

and school yards.

No dealing to children, got it?

if you do, you're dead.

okay, crazy man,

this is all very generous.

But why in the hell

should we listen to you?



Those are the heads

of all of your lieutenants.

That took me two hours.

You wanna see what i can get done

in a whole evening?

Make no mistake.

I'm not asking you to kick in with me.

I'm telling you.

Forty percent works for me.


-Go, go, go!

-where's Raymond and Denny?

-He got them. Just grabbed them up.

Screw it.

Just go, get us out of here.

i think i iost him.

-You think i iost him?

-i think you iost him.

i think we're good.

No, you're anything but good.



who are you working for?


Look, we just boosted the truck and--

Lie to me again

and crashing into a wall head-on...

...will be the least painful activity

of your evening:

No, i swear to--


-what is that?

-Your cargo.

it's called Amazo.

what the hell is an Amazo?

A highly advanced, cybernetic android...

...equipped with the ability

to absorb the power of super humans.

what kind of super humans?

Big ones.

Packs quite the punch

for a toaster on steroids, huh?

-Need a hand?


okay, well,

how about i just stick around and watch?

who's that other one?

The pretty boy in the leotard?

That's Nightwing.

He was the Bat's first sidekick.

The first Robin.

-i think you'll have to do better than that.

-i did.


will that do any good?

it'll slow it down.

You think so?

Get to higher ground.

Did you know he could fly?


i wouldn't be offended

by a few suggestions.

He has the same weak points

as a human being.

Got it. This might sting a bit.


Lasers. He's got lasers.

i don't think putty in his eyes

is gonna hurt him.

But plastique will. Nice.

This shipment was meant

for the Black Mask.

i doubt you're behind this.

-who do you work for?

-i swear. we're not working for anybody.

This was our gig, all our idea.

-Let it go.



i'll talk, i'll talk. Just stop. Just stop!

The Red Hood.

we're working for the Red Hood.

we don't have any choice. He's got--


The shots came from the rooftop.

A sniper.


A good one.

See him?



Hey, wait.

Right. Leave me with them.


God, please, no. Stay away.

it's a setup. wait.

I'm not a crook, i swear.



Hard to forget that night, huh?

in a way, Batman,

this was the site of your first great failure.

Maybe your greatest,

but certainiy not your last, right?

Ah, memories.

This bit of intel

is what brought me to town.

Good thing i've always had perfect timing.

Take a look.

i got this shot from a snitch. He says that

this guy's been making some serious moves.

The Red Hood.

Might be.

He bears a resemblance to the original.


Severai criminals have utilized this persona.


one criminal of particuiar interest, though.
