Intro Arc Scene: Poison Ivy Attacks!A little background before this story begins. A few nights before this; Batman and Robin arrived in Brooklyn and proceeded to piss off Joseph/Ronin because Robin drugged his dog and threatened Sam, Joseph's little brother. They also broke into Joseph's bunker under his house to find out more about him. Stressed out about what happened, Joseph went on another patrol. However, Batman followed and gave him criticisms as he fought. The two vigilantes finally confronted each other; Batman pointed out that Joseph still had a long way to go, etc. Joseph snapped, punching Batman through a brick wall. His powers finally manifested for the first time, but in an uncontrollable rage, Joseph attacked Batman. Batman managed to subdue Joseph and knocked him unconscious; while Joseph rested in his bunker, Batman and Co (Batman, Robin, Nightwing, Alfred and Titus (though those last two stayed in the bunker)), with some unwilling assistance from Sam, uncovered Joseph's full origin as well as how he figu

Alfred: *not even turning around* Dinner is not for another hour, Master Sam.
Sam: But you're cooking already.
Alfred: This is for Master Bruce's dinner. He eats a tad "cleaner" than the rest of you.
Sam: You mean like grilled chicken, brown rice, no sweets?
Alfred: How do you know about that?
Sam: Joey used to eat like that until he took me in; which meant a lot more time on cardio for him.
Alfred: And as he isn't crimefighting at the moment, I don't think he minds not having Master Bruce's diet. He is still pretty active in his own way, but doesn't need to be primed for battle.
Sam: Yep. Umm...what are you cooking?
Alfred: It's a type of fish.
Sam comes over to where Alfred is cooking, he sees a branzino being pan-fried. He then looks a tad queasy.
Alfred: Want some?
Sam: Umm...no thanks; I don't like eating anything that still has a face on it.

Panel 1 POV of our villain, Conflict, who we will see
later in this book. It's a red HUD, built for combat. We
are in a conference room at Wayne Enterprises. Several
security guards lie dead on the ground. Bruce Wayne has
his arms up, as does Joseph Kane.
This is not what I expected.
Mr. Sandman, Send Me A DreamThere is a realm outside reality, where your wildest imaginations and your darkest nightmares live. Here there be two feuding brothers, and their gargoyles, a sentient meadow known as Fiddler's Green, a loyal butler, a wisecracking raven, and more.Mr. Sandman, Send Me A Dream1 year ago in General Fiction More Like This
In the center of this realm, behind gates of horn and ivory, stands a beautiful castle made of the purest dream-stuff. Imagine a much grander, and far more gothic, Cinderella's Castle.
And in the ornate throne room sits the realm's master. His hair and robe are dark as night, and his eyes are filled with stars. Around his neck is a chain with a massive ruby. Attached to his belt is a bag filled with magical sand. And perched on an armrest is a weird shaped helm that is a cross between a hummingbird and a gas mask.
His name is Morpheus, or Dream.
Others simply call him "The Sandman".
Nearby were seven niches, each with a symbol for his siblings and himself. They are the Endless, aspects of the universe such as Destiny, Desire, Destruction, an
