Bruce Wayne meets Jezebel Jet at an opening for an art exhibit featuring examples of pop art, including work reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. Outside, Alfred encounters a panicking Professor Langstrom, who indicates that something is about to happn. Inside, something does: The fete is attacked by a squad of ninja Man-Bats. Wayne doffs the garb of Batman and fights the Man-Bats, only to be knocked unconscious. When he comes to, he learns that the attack -- and the Man-Bat commandos -- is the work of Talia al Ghul. She introduces Batman to his son. (22 pages, continued)
