  • Details
    Written by Doug Moench. Pencils by Jim Aparo. Inks by Rick Burchett. Cover by Kelley Jones.

    While Alfred and Tim Drake look after the crippled Bruce Wayne, Bane wastes no time solidifying his place as the leader of all criminal enterprises in Gotham City. He and his men cut a bloody swathe through the town, gunning down all rival crime lords from dozens of underworld families.

    Bruce is obviously depressed, having faced another man squarely for the first time and lost. He feels he has failed his mission to protect Gotham. When he realizes that his back has been broken, he declares that Bane has destroyed him. Tim can barely conceal his tears at hearing his mentor so weak. Together, he and Alfred plan to contact Dr. Shondra Kinsolving, the same woman who rehabilitated Tim's father Jack Drake.

    Alfred, Tim and Jean-Paul Valley move Bruce from the Batcave into the master bedroom of the manor. They then get to work destroying one of Bruce's Porches as part of a cover story to explain his injuries. Meanwhile, Jean-Paul and Sal Fiorini install a new security system to prevent Bane or anyone else from getting into the Manor again.
