The Spectre of Vengeance

Letters Column: Bat Signals

As Bruce Wayne begins to romance radio talk-show host Vesper Fairchild, the Spectre searches for Batman. When the Spectre locates Batman in his Batcave, the Spectre realizes that Batman is not responsible for the deaths. Tracking down the true culprits, Batman disagrees with the Spectre's methods. Having a rare moment of faith, Batman begins to ask the Spectre a favor involving his parents, but the Spectre refuses to cooperate, stating that his knowledge involves the denizens of hell, and if he knew the answer, Batman would not like it.
