Synopsis for "Cataclysm, Part Thirteen: Blunt Trauma"
Stephanie Brown gets hit by the earthquake while she's at the mall. She decides to stay and help as Spoiler. The Blackgate escapees arrive at the mainland and decide to go straight to the mall to change their prison clothes and avoid recognition. Huntress arrives at the mall and helps Spoiler with the rescuing efforts.
The Blackgate fugitives are led by Stephanie's father, the Cluemaster, and they start creating havoc in the mall. Huntress and Spoiler try to stop them all and after fighting some of them, they manage to stop all of them but one. Cluemaster convinces his daughter to let him escape the wrath of the Huntress. Stephanie agrees and lets her father go away. After a few minutes, Spoiler and Huntress walk away from the mall in a broken and beaten state.
