Here is your legacy, Damian.

Here is your inheritance.

The League of Assassins.

Yes, Grandfather.

They will be yours to command.

To make certain the Earth abides

in natural contentment...

without the abuse of man.

It is good to see our revered father

so devoted to his grandson.

Yes. brother, it is.

We have been breached.

They are already inside. Take the boy.

Who would dare?

Stay here, Damian.

Hold your" fire.

He's mine.

Confused, old man'?


What is the meaning of this outrage?

I call it a hostile takeover.

Your arrogance embarrasses me

and shames you.

You still have some spring in your step.

Let's see how you do

against a real swordsman.

Come and get some.

After you, boy.

How could you have pushed me out?

I was your right hand.

Your actions decided for you.

He's in positron.

Let's move.

After 500 years. the world's had

quite enough of you, old man

The Lazarus Pit

will not bring you back this time.


So you're Talia's little bastard.

Not bad for a child.

But new, we end it.

Now your heart. Unh!

I'll make you suffer for this, boy.

Next time.


Come back and finish it, traitors.



Grandfather? Grandfather.


Damian. wait.



Unh! We have to get him

into the Lazarus Pit.


We have to try. We can't just leave him.

He's dead.

The Pit can restore a body

this damaged.

He's beyond healing.

You did your best.

I failed.

We can't think about that now.

We have to move. Come.

Damian. now.

Where are we going?

Gotham City.

It's time to meet your father.

Waylon Jones, aka. Killer Croc.

Stealing drugs isn't your usual MO.


When half the biotech firms in town get hit,

I get curious.

You look like

you've been working out, Croc.

The tail's new.

Yeah, got an upgrade.

That's right, run.

What's your hurry. Croc?

I'm not done with you.

You know, Bats...

...the problem with steroids is

I get the munchies.

Hello, my love.

You should have warned your play date.

I'm the only one who can bite you.

Would you like a drink?

Last time, that didn't go so well.

Oh, you're right.

If I remember correctly,

I put a little something in your beverage.

Same way I remember it.

- It made you romantic.

- It made me do what you wanted.

Was xi all bad, beloved'?

No, it wasn't all bad.

Then you remember

our shared moonlight'?

Some of it.

The best parts'?

Talia, what do you want?

My father, he's dead.

- Ra's?

- How many fathers do I have?

Sorry. He always seemed-

Like you? Indestructible?

Huh. You haven't seen my x-rays.

Maybe you can show them to me


You don't seem all that broken up

about Ra's' death.

There is no time for mourning.

Assassins planned to take over

Ra's' organization.

They are led by a man who Father believed

could be his successor.

Until my father became aware of you.

Now this man wants to kill us.

- Us?

- Not you.


...and your son.


You expect me to believe this?

I assure you, he's yours.

Don't look so stunned, Father.

I thought you'd be taller.

You didn't know about me'?


So Mother has made me

your responsibility?

Something like that.

This isn't necessary. I do fine by myself.

So do I.

But things have changed.

She thinks you'll be better off with me,

for now.

What do you think?

Better than with

the League of Assassins.

They taught me how to fight.

And I take it not much else.

- I'll drive.

- No'

- I know how.

- No.

- /- Alfred'?

- Yes, sir.

- We're going to have company.

ALFRED A sleepover?

Oh. goody.



So close.

Morn said leave your test tubes

and come now. She has dinner.

In a minute. I'm close to a breakthrough.

You're always close to a breakthrough.

Rebecca, I'm doing it for us.

Oh, making something turn blue in a tube,

that's for us?

Do what you like.

Perhaps I could use a bite.

I'm starting to see double here.

Wait up.

Welcome back, sir.

I presume this is the young man

of whom you spoke'?

Hello, Pennyworth. I've heard of you.

At your service, Master Damian.

Where are the rest of the servants?

I am the sum total.

You have only one servant'?

He's not a servant. He's a friend.

So this is the fabled Batcave.

Grandfather told me all about it.

Smaller than I imagined.

Very efficient, though.

He is the spitting image

of you at that age.

It's a bit chilling.

Tell me about it.

Look, you're gonna have to get him settled.

I'm not sure how long he'll be here,

but for the time being, this will be his home.

Looks rather effeminate, don't you think?

Master Dick was a boy

when he wore that.

Where is he new?

Moved on. And so shall we.

Would you like to see

where you" be sleeping?

I hope this isn't too cramped for you.

That door heads to your bath.

The other, to a game room.

And you also have this

far your amusement.

Naturally, you have the run

of the mansion.

Of course. I know that.

Prepare some tea, Pennyworth.

Brown sugar instead of white,

fresh-cut lemon. a china cup.

Perhaps master would like

some warm mixed nuts...

...and a moist hand towel.

Watch yourself, Pennyworth. I'm not

so young that I don't understand sarcasm.

While I am much too old to care.

I have been released by Master Damian.

I miss him already.

How is he?

Facing the shock of downsizing, sir.

Nothing on cable?

An old video of Ra's being revived

by the Lazarus Pit.
