Batman survived the fall from a building and Bane escaped. Back in the cave, Tim and Jean Paul talked. Batman no longer needed Robin. Jean Paul continued designing his new costume. Nightwing came to Gotham, where he learned the details from Robin. He was upset that Bruce didn't come to him. Jean Paul went out in his new costume, more Azrael than Batman. Bane put forth a challenge, Az-Bat accepted. On orders from the mayor, the police stood down as they fought. Az-Bat took out Bane's supply of venom, leaving him a normal human. Bane fled. They met up again and continued their fight on an elevated train. Robin showed up and freed the passenger cars from the lead car. Az-Bat defeated Bane and left him for the police.
