Margot (as Double Dare)
The French aerialists and thieves Double Dare are in trouble as they've stolen some
items which belong to the Penguin. He wants them back or wants the twins dead, and
Nightwing and Azrael set out both to protect Double Dare and to recover the money they
have stolen from one of Wayne Enterprises' charities. Nightwing and Azrael get along in
an uneasy manner, as Azrael feels that his colleague does not like him.
The twins lead them directly to the Penguin's hideout, where they discover that
he is not exactly a man of honour, ordering his men to kill the duo. Nightwing and Azrael
come to their assistance, also forcing them to hand over the charity money they stole. As
they leave, Azrael reveals that he envies Nightwing, for his confidence in the world, in
women and in Batman. This brings the two closer as Nightwing reveals that these are the
things he feels least confident about. They realise that the only person who genuinely
doesn't lose confidence in anything is their mentor Batman.

This story is probably an Elseworlds tale and thus not part of regular continuity.
Incarcerated in adjoining cells at Arkham, Poison Ivy and Harley have a gamble -
Ivy bets she can get a kiss from every man in the asylum. As her pheremones spread
through the building, it looks like Ivy will win the bet. However, when the Joker finally
appears on the scene, he murmurs about how much he loves Harley - Ivy has lost the bet as
Joker thought he was kissing someone else. Later, Harley pays off the Ventriloquist, who
was the real power behind Joker's sweet nothings.
