Ronin has been captured by Riddler and put into an elaborate deathtrap.
Ronin: (narrating) Okay, this isn't so bad; Batman put me into worse scenarios during training (I wish I was kidding). Looks like Nygma is overconfidant; I can pick these locks easily.
A lockpick extends from Ronin's gauntlet and he begins picking the lock.

Ronin: No, Roman statuary is classic, Sondheim is classic, the Louvre is classic. You're just in a rut!

A Long Awaited Rematch, Version IIJason Todd, also known as the Red Hood, ran along the rooftops of Gotham in search of criminals. Not to arrest them and hand them to the ineffectual Gotham PD like his one time mentor or his "brothers", but to teach them a more permanent lesson. Normally he'd be accompanied by his fellow "Outlaws"; the alien princess Starfire and the archer (and "recovering sidekick") Arsenal. However, he wanted to do this alone; and for all he knew those two were making out in Metropolis. He gave them a time and place to pick him up; for now he wanted to stretch his legs in his old hometown and kick some butt.A Long Awaited Rematch, Version II7 months ago in Sketches More Like This

Sam Story: ChangesSam Kane and Damian Wayne were training in the vast gym in Wayne Manor as Damian's father and Sam's older brother discussed plans and patrol routes for the next few weeks. Damian was practicing martial arts and Sam decided to lift weights. Lately, Sam had been wanting to get stronger and been having more energy than normal; weightlifting dealt with both issues. As Damian took on several targets, he occasionally glanced to make sure Sam, one of his few friends, wasn't in trouble of crushing himself. Sure, he made fun of Sam for wanting to get stronger: "You, big and strong? That would be the day"; but it was just a friendly jest. However, he hSam Story: Changes7 months ago in Sketches More Like This

A Substitute Robin, Part IIIThe Batmobile roared into the Batcave at lightning speed and Batman and his new (at least for the time being) Robin jumped out of the car as soon as the Batmobile came to a stop. Sam Kane's eyes widened as he saw his friend, Damian Wayne, the Robin he was filling in for, was attacking Joseph Kane, Sam's big brother, and Alfred Pennyworth, the Wayne Family butler. Damian had changed though; due to a drug designed by Scarecrow and Bane, Damian was considered to be in dire peril, the truth was more gruesome. Damian had gone from a slightly taller than average, athletic 10 year old boy to a giant, musclebound raging engine of bone and sinew.

A Substitute Robin, Part IIThe Port Carmine Lighthouse was a tall structure at the far end of the stretch of Gotham Bay known as Port Carmine. While it wasn't used for its original purpose with the advent of new technology; it was still considered to be a lucky landmark to see when a Gotham ship came into port. However, it was also often used as a hideout for whatever criminal who could muscle his way into the lighthouse, kick out the lighthouse keeper (who was there usually for the upkeep of the place, the Gotham Historical Society let him and his family live in the house connected to the lighthouse), and set up shop and try to take over the lucrative docks racket.A Substitute Robin, Part II7 months ago in Sketches More Like This

He wiggles the fingers of the gauntlet and a batarang slides from the device on the back. Joseph throws it and thanks to the guidance system he gets a bullseye.

Out of the 8 million plus people in New York City, 2.5 million live in the city's second largest borough, the most in population. Many of them are kids, and all love to play in the garden spot that is in the center of Brooklyn. Many of them are from the surrounding neighborhoods of Park Slope, Prospect Heights, Windsor Terrace, Flatbush; kids of all races, creeds, religions, backgrounds and parentage. Unfortunately, this means there are always bigger and older kids to pick on the smaller ones.
