Synopsis for "Flesh and Steel"

An enraged Nightwing goes after Jean-Paul after he rigged the Batmobile to explode with Bruce in it. Robin meanwhile saves a child from a car that was about to explode. Nightwing and Jean-Paul fall off of the bridge into the water.

Robin turns around to see Bruce unharmed. Bruce knew that Jean-Paul would have rigged the car. Bruce tells Robin to follow him as Nightwing can hold his own and know when to back off with Jean-Paul.

Nightwing follows Jean-Paul to a riverboat casino. Jean-Paul tells Nightwing that he will kill him and then Robin so there will be no more "pretenders". Jean-Paul bests Nightwing and is about to kill him, when policemen enter the scene. Jean-Paul throws Nightwing into the cops' path, escaping in the process. He finds his way to the subway tunnels back to the cave, praising St. Dumas all the way. He hears someone above in the manor and comes face to face once more with Bruce!



Notes

Trivia

  • In an ironic twist that foreshadows Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight #63, Bruce's stance on the last page mirrors Bane's stance on the last page of Detective Comics #663. The background of each image is identical, in terms of where each is standing in relation to the entrance to the Batcave, but different in the fact that Wayne Manor has been left unkempt since Jean-Paul's assumption of the Mantle of the Bat.
  • The people inside the riverboat casino bear some similarity with DC staff. The characters are drawn in resemblance to Chuck Dixon; Archie Goodwin; Jordan Gorfinkel and Dennis O'Neil
