Symbol of the Knight-
"Recognized, Robin. B-02."
"How did Joker get out of Arkham?! I want to know, now!"
A few younger members of the Team stumbled back in fear as the seventeen 년 old Boy-Wonder stormed into the Cave. A look of murder on his face.
"Robin, whoah! What is it?"
"Out of my way M'gann! Where's Batman?!"
"Right here." the grizzly voice came. Robin rounded on the Dark Knight. "How did he get out?!"
"That's a good question. Another good 질문 would be why are 당신 so upset?" 배트맨 replied calmly.
"Because he almost killed Batgirl!"
"She's fine, Cassie." Robin sighed. "But what I want to know is why 당신 didn't finish him once and for all! Especially after--"
Robin froze. Saying "Jason" risked their identities. Saying "Robin" confused the younger ones, and saying "Red Hood" gave away too much.
"I explained it to 당신 before." 배트맨 said. "I know being back in the suit pains you, but you're 연기 더 많이 like him every day!"
"Who?" Cassie whispered.
"The 초 Robin." Superboy replied. "little violent for a hero. But he was killed 의해 the Joker."
"Recognized, Batgirl. B-22."
Barbara walked into the Cave. "Sorry, couldn't find my uniform--" she stopped at the stunned looks of everyone in the Cave. "What? You're 연기 like 당신 saw a ghost."
"But--but--" Robin stumbled over his words. "But you're--"
"But I'm what?" Barbara demanded, putting her hands on her hips.
Robin glanced at 배트맨 and ran towards the zeta-tubes. "Recognized, Robin. B-02."
A moment later, the Boy Wonder was in the BatCave, closely followed 의해 배트맨 and Barbara.
"I'm not following what's going on." Barbara said. "Bru--"
"Hush!" Robins hissed. He slowed as he approached the red-head figure of Batgirl, lying on the operating table, blood coming from her arms and stomach. Alfred was leaning over her with a surgeons mask on.
"Did 당신 take off the cowl?!" Robin demanded.
"Of course n-- Good Heavens! Mistress Gordon! What on--How--"
"Let's find out." Robin said. He slipped his fingers under the 고깔 달린 겉옷, 물통 and slowly pulled it off to reveal the face of--
"Artemis." Robin breathed.
The 고깔 달린 겉옷, 물통 was fully removed and the fake red hair fell to the ground. The blonde had a contorted look of pain on her face. Robin touched her blood matted hair gently and brushed some strands out of her face.
"Where's Kid Flash?" Robin demanded, turning to his former mentor.
"He's at Little Bohemia in Metropolis with Flash." a new voice said. "Why?"
"This is his girlfriend, Tim. Dressed in Barbara's costume." Robin face-palmed himself. "I am so dead."
