Synopsis for "Aborigine!"
At night, Batman breaks up a drug trade and after rounding up the criminals, Alfred drives him in the new Batmobile to a charity art viewing ceremony as Bruce Wayne. In the meantime, the Australian aborigine pays a visit to the group of thugs, responsible for stealing the sacred relic from his people and murders their leader after learning that the man who is currently in possession of the relic is Kerry Rollo, the host of the art ceremony.
Later that night, Bruce resumes his actvities as Batman and learns about the gruesome murder by the aborigine, who is now on his way to confront Rollo. Batman deduces the man's plans and goes back to Rollo's tower, where he arrives in time to confront the aborigine. Rollo, as an art collector, paid his thugs to take the relic known as “The Power Bone of Uluru” by any means necessary and the aborigine has come with unholy retribution for the crime. Batman attemps to stop the criminal, but he hesitates upon learning the truth. Batman tries to talk the aborigine into surrendering and allow the law to make justice, but the aborigine knows better.
In a last effort, the aborigine tackles Rollo and they both fall from the building's penthouse to a certain death below. Batman descends and finds Rollo's body splattered on the sidewalk, but the aborigine is nowhere to be found. Just a few blocks away, an alarm is activated and when Batman goes to investigate, he finds an Australian shop, the window broken and a message written in blood by the aborigine in honor of his people. Although the killer has escaped, the Dark Knight's hunt won't stop, as this is his eternal crusade.
