Synopsis for "Legacy, Part One: Progeny of the Demon"
At the site of the fabled wheel of plagues, Batman, Nightwing and Robin encounter Ra's al Ghul, Talia and the latest Ubu. Ra's orders all three killed by his gunmen, to the disappointment of Ubu, who is pledged to Talia and wished to kill 'the Detective' himself. As the heroes do battle with his followers, Ra's makes his plans to unleash a virus which will destroy 90% of the world's population. Having made a computer model of the wheel of plagues, he plans to destroy it and head for the new world. As the area floods, Batman and Robin are trapped in the water in a rapidly-filling cistern until the air pressure catapults them out, while Nightwing confronts al Ghul. Ra's has the upper hand in this match, but as Robin and Batman arrive on the scene, he makes his escape along with Talia and Ubu (revealed as Bane). Meanwhile, below ground, the water is rising in Catwoman's cell.
