Synopsis for "Asked and Answered"

Day 1
Nightwing and Renée Montoya team-up and work tirelessly to combat Intergang's efforts in Gotham City.

Day 2
Nightwing and Montoya raid a night-club and fight against more Intergang members. They still have no idea where Bruno Manheim is however.

Day 3
Nightwing and Montoya burst into Kathy Kane's home only to find that Whisper A'Daire and her mutated Intergang agents have already arrived. While they fight off the creatures, Whisper gets the drop on Kathy. She injects her with a drug and takes her to a hidden sanctuary.

Day 4
Nightwing and Montoya continue fighting Intergang's monster horde. One of their number however, Brother Abbot, betrays his colleagues and joins with them. He no longer believes in the prophecy and he thinks that Manheim and Whisper are insane.

Before fleeing the crime scene, the monsters activate a device which sets off satellite energy cannons all across the city. Montoya tells Dick that he is the only one that can find all of the devices in time and shut them down. Meanwhile, she plans on tracking down Kathy. As she leaves, she activates a sample of pseudoderm and uses it to disguise her face, finally adopting the identity of the Question.

She follows Intergang's trail to Cathedral Square where Kathy is being held captive. As she enters the church, she finds Manheim standing before an altar preparing to offer Kathy up as a human sacrifice. She fights past several more monster-men, but she is too late. He plunges a ritualistic dagger into Kathy's chest. The Question begins shooting wildly at him, driving him back against the wall. While the two fight, Kathy struggles to rise from the altar. She pulls the dagger from her chest and hurls it at Manheim's back. The knife plunges in and he falls over dead. The Question rushes to her side, finding she only has moments to live.

Day 5
On Oolong Island, Chang Tzu opens a radio broadcast to the people of the world. He informs them that his Science Squad has captured Black Adam and that he is up for auction.
