The story picks up from Batman's capture in Final Crisis (2008) #2. As he's held in Bludhaven by Simyan and Mokkari of the Evil Factory, the id-parasite Lump creates a mental situation that attempts to find out what drives Batman and how to reproduce it. This is used as an opportunity to explore Batman's past in a series of flashbacks.
