Synopsis for "Transformations"

All is not well. Batman is behaving differently to how he has always behaved (because he actually is Jean-Paul Valley), and Commissioner Gordon begins to fear that he will have to begin hunting his old friend down, to make sure that he cannot hurt anyone, as the man who once seemed to hold life so dear is displaying a casual disregard for the physical safety of those he would normally capture unharmed. Bane claims that this is not the Batman Gordon knows, which is indeed the case, but Robin is not forthcoming when Gordon speaks to him. It appears that Gotham City's greatest protector may have become one of its monsters, and Gordon does not know what to do about it.



Notes

  • In the chronology of the various Batman series of the 1990s, this issue fits between the lead story of Showcase '93 #10 and Batman #501.
  • Caz Sallucci and Billy Pettit, who made their debuts in 1994 and 1996 respectively, both make their earliest chronological appearances in this issue.

Trivia

Chuck Dixon, who wrote this issue, wrote both Detective Comics and Robin during the period that the story is set in.
