With Batman back in town, the two heroes tapped some of Desmond's associates lines looking for something to tie him to the 21 dead gangsters. They got the needed confessions and attacked. Batman took care of Lady Vic and Stallion while Nightwing went after Blockbuster. Battling it out under his house, Desmond knocked out a support beam, bringing the structure down on himself. Batman and Nightwing left him for dead.
