Synopsis for "Contagion, Part Two: The Gray Area"

Batman escapes the U.S. Army facility and heads to Babylon Towers where he told Robin to go as well. Once they were there, they checked upon Daniel Maris; the one suspect of being the virus carrier. Batman and Robin confirmed that Maris was infected and they hear Maris tell the others Babylon residents who might be the only survivor to the virus and the only possible cure for the disease. Batman and Robin called upon Oracle to help them find the survivor, a man named Kendall Stuart who is living in Canada.

The Babylon Towers residents decided to use all their wealth to find the man without caring for the means to do it. The Babylonians turn their efforts to Gotham's organized crime to find the man and they asked The Penguin to find the sole survivor. Menwhile all the people that has been exposed to the virus was already showing the symptoms and some of them were dying, including Daniel Maris.

Batman gave Robin the task of finding the survivor before any of Gotham's criminals get their hands of the man. Robin went along with Alfred to the last known adress of the man in Canada, but when he arrived at the place he was confronted by Catwoman who was there to take Stuart to Gotham and claim five million dollars.
