    At long last, after the death of Bruce Wayne's friend Jeremy Samuels, the shooting of Lew Moxon and a handful of epic battles, it comes down to this: the final showdown between Batman and Zeiss.

    While chasing down routine criminals, Batman finds himself distracted by thoughts of Philo Zeiss, at least until he discovers a body wrapped in a carpet with its neck broken. He begins to track down the deceased, via the carpet he was rolled up in. The next morning, Bruce Wayne gets a 'phone message from Mallory Moxon, who feels he's been ignoring her, which, Sasha insists, is pretty much the truth. That night, Batman tracks down Rex Cooke and then Mallory Moxon, forcing Zeiss into the open , as he is the killer in question - of Peter Perkins, Rex Cooke's messenger/spy. Zeiss and Batman fight, Zeiss claiming that he has trained himself specifically to fight Batman and so cannot lose; Batman turns the tables by introducing Batgirl to the fight, which is soon ended. Lew Moxon soon hears the fracas and orders Batman to leave and to take Zeiss with him.

    The build up from Batman #582 finally comes to a boiling over point.  Waiting for this point must of been killer with all the cross-overs in the middle, some good like the last issue that ties in Joker's Last Laugh and some that were okay, but really take away from the run like the Sanctuary arc that ties into Our Worlds at War.  When read collected this story runs a lot smoother with the corresponding issues a lot closer together.  This issue is the climax of the Philo Zeiss character's in...
