Ra's al Ghul was the head of the League of Assassins, whose daughter became the mother of a son fathered by his adversary Batman. The son, given the name Ibn al Xu'ffasch ("Son of the Bat"), was constantly subjected to torturous rituals by his grandfather in preparation for taking over his criminal empire. However, Ra's was eventually killed and his body was cut into pieces by his grandson. Years later, following the events of Kingdom Come, Ibn resurrected Ra's by using the Lazarus Pit and brought him, Lex Luthor, and Brainiac to the Batcave for the purpose of devising a way to prevent their reality from being erased by Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman going back to the past to stop Gog from creating the Kansas disaster years earlier. After Ibn eliminated both Luthor and Brainiac by using the Chronoslip they have created, which he believed they have purposely sabotaged, he dueled with his grandfather inside the Batcave, who surmised the real reason they came to that place - Ibn wanted to succeed his father Bruce Wayne as Batman. The duel ended with Ibn striking the killing blow that ended Ra's' life once more.
