Appearing in "KnightsEnd"
Synopsis for "KnightsEnd"
Having learned of what had happened in his absence, Bruce Wayne has resolved himself to take back the Mantle of the Bat from Jean-Paul Valley. Reluctantly, he asks for help from Lady Shiva. In turn, she sets seven warriors after him after killing their master. As Bruce battles these masters, he has Tim and Dick run surveillance on Jean-Paul as he begins his own quest to find the then-presumed dead Carlton Lehah. Things came to a head when Bruce confronted the final master and apparently killed him, pleasing Shiva. However, it was a ruse just to please her and it was time for Bruce to retake his title.
Jean-Paul's quest soon lead him to Gordon Selkirk, a gunrunner who was also in the sights of Selena Kyle due to him having a device she needed. Before Jean-Paul could kill him or his men, Bruce arrived and challenged the other. Selkirk attempted to use their fight to kill the two Batmen, only for everything to go south thanks to Jean-Paul's grappling line damaging Selkirk's helicopter. In the process, the helicopter crashlands on a nearby bridge. Bruce is able to stop Jean-Paul temporarily before focusing on those on the copter, saving them. When he attempts to hunt down Jean-Paul, however, the nearby Batmobile explodes with Bruce still inside it. Enraged, Dick attacks Jean-Paul, but despite his own physical prowess, Jean-Paul bests him.
Returning to the Batcave, Jean-Paul is shocked to learn Bruce is alive and demands Bruce to leave. Instead, Bruce attempts to reason with Jean-Paul, but in the end, he is forced to bring him down to his levels. In a final, desperate gamble, Bruce gets Jean-Paul to strip himself of the costume before flooding him with sunlight, shattering Jean-Paul's mind. Sympathetic, Bruce allows Jean-Paul to leave. The next night, Tim ends up aiding Bruce in taking down a heist in a museum, reaffirming them partnership.
