1 week ago
A cold night in Gotham, the fog is high and the moon is covered by clouds. An old warehouse is surrounded by vans and armed men. Inside it a round table and eight men are waiting, they are very distinct from each other, representing the areas in Gotham they came from.
Arturo Inzerillo: The hell you say? You didn't call this reunion?
Freddie Galante: I thought it was you east side thrash, you already joined Black Mask's Society and I figured you wanted us in too.
Able Crown: Joined? Black Mask killed six of crew this week. Six of my best sellers. I had no choice.
Arturo: So you called this meet?
Able: Nah, thought it was Squid.
The Squid: Not my meet.
Freddie: I'm leaving, if you want to waste your time discussing who called this, Ok, but I ain't wasting mine!
Someone: Sit down, Freddie! It's my meeting.
A man is watching them in the shadows. They all get up from the chairs.
Tobias Whale: It's him!
Arturo: Batman?
Able: We didn't do nothing!
Man: Well, we all know that's a lie.
The man comes from the shadows, wearing a motorcycle jacket and a red helmet, holding a rifle.
Whale: Who the hell are you?
Man: Doesn't matter now.
Freddie: What are you waiting? Shoot him!
They all pull their guns but the man starts shooting first, he shoots their guns, the table and the ground next to them, they all jump to ground closing their ears.
Man: I said sit down!
Squid: You wanna die? There are easier ways to get killed!
Man: Yeah, like yelling at the guy holding an AK-47. Listen to me you pieces of sh*t, I'll be running the drug trade from now on. You are eight of the most prosperous drug lords in Gotham. I'm offering you fools a deal, you do your usual business but you give 40% of the profit to me. Better than the thrash Black Mask is leaving for you to catch. In return, you get total protection from both Black Mask and Batman. But you stay away from kids and schools, no dealing to children got it? If so you're dead.
Arturo: This is all very generous but why the hell should we listen to you?
The man drops a bag in the table, Arturo opens the zipper and a rotten smell comes on air. Squid vomits on the ground.
Able: Oh, damn.
Man: Those are the heads of your lieutenants and consiglieres. It took me only two hours, want to see what I can get done in the whole evening? Make no mistake, don't you see? I'm not asking you to work with me, I'm telling you.
Whale: But who the hell are you?
Man: Tell the streets their new boss is THE RED HOOD.
He shoots the table again and disappears.
Freddie: I'm fine with 40 percent.
Able: Works for me too.
Now (continuing from last chapter)
The Batwing flies fast through the Gotham river, the turbines release a glowing blue fire. He follows the Red Hood as he jumps from building to building. He falls in an alleyway and enters an red Dodge Charger. Batman jumps from the Batwing and pulls the batclaw in the car's bumper. He is pulled and dragged by the car all over the street. His arm is hurt, his cape is destroying, he jumps and his gloves release an electroshock that opens the cape and he starts "para-sailing" in middle street.
He shoots the grapnel gun on the Batwing and connects the two ropes. He then enter the batwing again, the back turbines stop, the front ones open, the Batwing pulls the car and Red Hood accelerates the car at it's maximum, in result the bumper breaks. The car enters a tunnel, the batwing wings decrease more close to the center of the plane allowing it to enter the tunnel.
Inside the cabin, Batman presses a button that activates several guns. The guns start shooting small balls, one of them sticks in the left back wheel, exploding and making the car spin on the tunnel. The car crashes on the wall of the tunnel, the Red Hood runs by the corner of the tunnel, turns by the left street and enters in a door at Park Row.
The batwing flies away from the tunnel and Batman jumps from it. He glides next to the building, breaks the window with a batarang and enters the building. He enters the building and sees a lot of acid tanks, he remembers his first years as a crime fighter.
Sometime like 15 years ago
Batman is wearing a costume with purple gloves and curved ears, arresting a the original Red Hood.
Red Hood: Wa-ait, stop, I'm not a crook I swear, it's a setup.
Batman pulls cuffs from his belt.
He starts removing his helmet
Red Hood: Look I'm a come-
He stumbles in his cape, batman tries to push him but he falls on the acid tank.
Back to the present, Batman observes the place where the criminal felt in his early career.
Red Hood: Remembering your first and greatest failure, huh?
Batman turns and sees the Red Hood pointing a gun to his head.
Red Hood: Your greatest but sure not your last. Ah, memories. Sorry, you won't live to think about it more.
Red Hood takes a lighter from his pocket and throws it on the tank. He runs away and Batman follows him right after but an explosion breaks the ground under him, he is thrown away in direction of an acid tank.
