Bruce Wayne contacted Lady Shiva. She agreed to get him back into shape. She killed one of the deadliest masters in martial arts wearing a bat mask. After two weeks of training, Bruce finally got a strike in on Shiva. She gave him her bat mask and told him where to go. Each of the master's trainees unknowingly were now after Bruce (knowing only their master was slain by the wearer of the mask). The first attacked with chains; Wayne defeated him. Shiva finished him when Bruce refused to. Under Robin's surveillance, Jean Paul continued to spiral downward. Stopping some gun runners, Az-Bat recovered LeHah's medallion of St. Dumas. Bruce defeated another master.
