Synopsis for "Prodigal: Ten"

Batman has fallen in a trap set up by the Tally Man. The Tally Man is seeking revenge for his last encounter with Batman, without knowking that the Batman he encountered the last time was Jean-Paul Valley. In a case of bitter irony, the beating at the hands of Jean-Paul was due to the Tally Man believing him to be Bruce Wayne. Dick tries to speak to the Tally Man but he won't listen as his thirst for vengeance is stronger and he needs to make the Batman pay for what he did to him. The Tally Man plays the russian roulette with Batman and as Dick starts to remember his entire life, something encourages him to keep fighting. Batman breaks free and beats the Tally Man. When he was attempting an escape, Batman caught him and left him hanging from a nearby drawbridge until the police arrives. The experience left Dick with a pleasant feeling of renewed hope.



Notes

Trivia

  • A continuity inconsistensy is present at the flashback when Dick remembers his parents' death. Originally he was part of the acrobatic number when his parents died; but in this issue he witnessed their deaths from the ground and dressed as a civilian.
