Bruce Wayne has returned and Gotham is now Dick's responsibility while Bruce Wayne goes international with Batman Inc to recruit soldiers for his Global war against crime. Ra's Al Ghul's father, Sensei, is back and seeks the mask known as the Beholder that grants immense power to its wearer. Sasha Lo and her half-brother Luki Lo meet with Dick and Lucius Fox, and request that their company purchase Crime Alley from Wayne Enterprises. Sensei sends his henchmen after the Los and kidnaps Luki because they are somehow connected to the mask. He also kidnaps Lucius Fox who used to belong to a brotherhood that is also connected to the mask. After overcoming an ambush by Riddler and his daughter, Batman tracks down Sensei with the help of Catgirl but he is captured. Sensei eventually finds the mask and attempts to use its ultimate power but Sasha warns him that the mask will destroy him because he is unworthy and Luki is revealed to be the true descendant and owner of the Beholder. An enraged Sensei slices the mask in half and attempts to kill them all but he is tackled by Batman and thrown out of the window. However, he managed to escape with a portion and seeks to reunite it once more. In the end, before leaving Gotham, Peacock tells Batman that the evil is gone for now and Dick feels that he will meet her again as a romantic relationship between the two has been hinted
While Bruce is going all over the world to recruit soldiers for his new mission, Bruce gave Gotham City to Dick Grayson while he goes all over the world. As Batman, Dick Grayson will be battling old Batman villains and also new ones. When teaming up with his sidekick Damian Wayne, he and Damian were chasing down the Reaper (whom was still crazy and thought it was War World 2). When Kitrina Falcone (Catgirl
) caught up with Dick and Damian she wanted to take down the Reaper
for the reward the Government is offering to the person that brings in Reaper dead or alive. When Dick found out what Kitrina was doing, he told her to leave the battle. Reaper took Catgirl by surprise and knocked her unconscious, but before he could kill her, Dick and Damian defeated him. After that, Dick asked Damian where Kitrina was and he replied that she escaped during the fight. Bruce confronts Dick and tells him that Catgirl is out of control and needs to be stopped from vigilante activities. Dick has a talk with Selina Kyle and Kitrina and manages to convince Katrina to cease vigilantism.
Sasha Lo and her half brother Luki
, appear in Gotham seeking an audience with members of Wayne Enterprises. They meet with Dick and Lucius Fox, requesting that The Lo Foundation be able to purchase property within Gotham's Crime Alley
neighborhood, most notably the theater and surrounding area where Bruce's parents were murdered. Claiming she wants to revitalize the area, she tells both Grayson and Fox to inform Bruce about her offer of millions more than the property is worth.
Hours later, Grayson notices she's following him. Offering him what essentially is a bribe of ten million dollars, Lo tells Grayson that she wants the deal done as soon as possible, as she suddenly needs to leave the country. Before Grayson can acquire more information, an arrow is shot at Lo, who reacts quick enough to catch it. She tells her driver to bring her brother to safety as she gives chase to the assassin.
As Batman, Grayson catches up to Lo who is now in a vibrantly colored costume, both resembling and calling herself Peacock. But as soon as Grayson finds her, the two become surrounded by Sensei
and his henchmen. They manage to escape and Peacock reveals that Sensei has kidnapped her brother for some unknown reasons and refuses to tell Dick.
I-Ching confronts Batman and tells him that Sensei is after a mystical mask called the Beholder that grants its wearer immense power. Sensei kidnaps Lucius Fox who he believes was a member of a secret brotherhood that knows of the Beholder's location. As Batman tries to find more clue, he eventually fall into the mercy of the Riddler and his daughter Enigma who beat him up very badly until Damian appears and helps him fight them off. Batman pays Reaper a visit and asks him about the people he was targeting in Chinatown. Reaper tells Batman to find the Chinese Butcher, Sensei, to save them all.
Dick then goes to Catwoman's hideout and asks Catgirl to lead him where Reaper was hanging out but made her promise to return to Selina as soon as she was done. When they arrive, following Reaper's clue, Dick realizes that the building Reaper was watching is a Chinese butcher shop. He enters the shop but is ambushed by Sensei and he has his men attempt to drown him along with Luki Lo, Lucius and Tam Fox. After saving the others, Batman fights off Sensei's men with the help of I-Ching.
Sensei finds the Beholder in the abandoned archives library of Gotham where he is delayed a bit by Peacock before Batman and the others appear to stop him. However, as Lo warned Sensei, the mask will destroy him because he is not worthy and Luki is revealed to be the true descendant and owner of the Beholder. An enraged Sensei slices the mask in half and attempts to kill them all but he is tackled by Batman and thrown out of the window. However, he managed to escape with a portion and seeks to reunite it once more. In the end, before leaving Gotham, Peacock tells Batman that the evil is gone for now and Dick feels that he will meet her again.
