Bruce Wayne is awake, but seriousl injured. Alfred knows they must bring in a doctor, so he and Robin concoct a story about a car smash and call in Shondra Kinsolving.

The streets of Gotham are in chaos and the Batman is sorely needed, so Bruce asks Jean-Paul Valley to take over his mantle for a time.
