Synopsis: Commissioner Gordon learns of the murder of local chemical king, Mr. Lambert, and quickly rushes to the scene with Bruce Wayne (who was bored and apparently had nothing better to do). Mr. Lambert's business partner Mr. Rogers was next on the hit-list, and his other business partner Mr. Stryker turns out to be the one behind it all! The Bat-Man rushes onto the scene and stops Stryker in time, but unfortunately knocks Stryker into a pit of acid.
Synopsis: Batman confronted Bane. Bane beat him like a rag-doll - throwing him, crashing him through walls. The beating continued down the stairs and into the cave below Wayne Manor. When Batman refused to beg for mercy, Bane lifted him up and crashed him down across his knee. Alfred went to get Tim.
