Letters Column: Bat-Signals

Fearing the potential threat that Azrael may pose, Bruce keeps him close to watch over him. During the day, Jean-Paul is given a job at Wayne Corp, and at night, he is guided on the streets by Robin. On their first night out, Robin and Azrael are able to take down an industrial espionage scheme, but Azrael is unable to keep the System in check. Meanwhile, Bruce Wayne is exhibiting symptoms of exhaustion and burn-out.
