Synopsis Wonder Woman arrives for a meeting with Superman, Green Lantern, and Plastic Man, insulting them and all men. They discuss what to do with this new Bat-Man that has now kidnapped a child. Wonder Woman wants to take him out; Superman disagrees, and after trading barbs back and forth, they kiss, with Wonder Woman agreeing to leave Batman alone for now. Meanwhile Batman enjoys patrolling Gotham City like a wild man, and stops a rape, brutally beating the two thugs, and telling the victim not to call the corrupt cops nor an ambulance. Alfred exercises back at Wayne Manor, recalling Bruce's childhood and the Wayne's deaths, wondering if his master has gone mad. Dick explores the Batcave, and finds a cache of old-style weapons, including a battle ax.
