Synopsis:
Continuing from Detective Comics #489, Batman finds a truckload of explosives being shipped off by the League of Assassins and is forced into a confrontation with Lurk, who was originally sent to stop the truck and stop the Sensei's plans. With the help of the recovering geologist, Batman learns that the Sensei planned an assassination by earthquake on the religious leaders of the world, who happened to be having a meeting in Gotham City. Batman is able to evacuate the religious leaders in time, along with the help of Commissioner Gordon. Unfortunately, the Sensei had escaped into the mansion where the earthquake would strike. Ra's al Ghul appears on the scene, determined to stop the Sensei and Talia runs off with a drugged Batman.
