Synopsis for "Legacy, Prelude: Hobson's Choice"

Huntress is working on some criminal activity while Batman tells Robin about the dead of Armand Krol as a result of the Ebola Gulf-A virus. Batman contacted Azrael to know more about the plague and it's origins. Azrael told him to go the Sudan desert to find some ruins that may hold the answer he is looking for. Oracle contacted the people in the batcave and told them that the virus wasn't completely eliminated but instead it stayed in a dormant state in the body and that it could remain in that state for days to years. Batman decides to go with Nightwing to Sudan and find a real cure for the virus. Robin decides that he wants to go too.

At the Gotham City Hall the news about Krol's dead spreaded like the virus itself. There was a meeting in which a man suggested to quarantine all the people that have been infected by the virus. Mayor Grange and Commissioner Gordon refused to do such thing and then the members at the meeting voted to not proceed in that way. Bruce Wayne payed a visit to Lucius Fox to give him full authority over the WayneTech decisions because of Bruce's future absence.

Batman tells Commissioner Gordon about his plans of traveling to Africa to find a real cure. Gordon didn't like to have to deal with Gotham City alone in that precise moment. Batman assured Gordon that he will leave a capable vigilante to help Gordon.

Huntress finds the place she has been looking for and took down several crooks. One of them was about to shoot her when Robin appeared and saved her. Robin then told her about the "traveling plans" and asked her to be the official Gotham vigilante in their abscence. She agreed on the condition that when they come back, Batman would thank her personally.
