In China, Lady Shiva makes Black Canary an offer that could change the course of her life. Back in Gotham, Barbara is plagued by her own technology, causing the once-infallible Oracle to send the wrong data to the JLA!
Black Canary and Shiva pursue Cheshire, but she claims she did not kill their Sensei, but is being framed for it by a man she despises, Senator Bob Pullman. Shiva believes she is telling the truth - the three are likely to have to work together. Back in America, Oracle realises that she is under attack on her home, computing, turf and asks for advice from some on-line contacts, who advise her to destroy her hardware and move. She has another encounter with her virtual tormentor and leaves the apartment, heading for her favourite restaurant, but finds herself under attack and abducted by a group of government agents.
