Rip Hunter discovers that someone else is one Vanishing Point and tries to track them down. He learns that Batman is "dead' and that the intruder is the Black Beetle. He barely escapes and calls Booster to his Time Lab. Once Booster arrives, from saving a elevator full of people without getting credit, the two Time Master argue over Batman's death. Rip insists that Booster go to the batcave and steal back the pictures of him trying to save Barbara Gordon.
Once in the cave Booster is jumped by Batman, who is later revealed as Dick Grayson.
