The cops had the place surrounded. Commissioner Gordon was ready to break in on his own, but still...he had patience....Batman and his friends had been gone for months, now. ALL of them. Something about a crisis...There had been rumors he was back, but....He was suddenly brought back to reality as he heard a voice behind him.

"Jim."

Gordon spun around, quickly. "BATMAN!"

"What's the situation, Jim."

"A lot's changed since you've been gone, Bats."

"Just give me the facts, Jim."

"...Okay. Joker's gotten a new gang together. He calls it the 52 gang. A bunch of people with power rating based on a 52 deck of cards system...needless to say, Joker's the highest."

"Is Joker a part of this?"

"No, but this is his gang, presumably under his orders....we got four twos, one jack, and a king in there. Holding Wayne Tower hostage....they want Wayne."

"I'll get them out."

Batman silently swung through a window.

Thank God he's back. Jim thought.

The Dark Knight quietly made his way into the tower....He pressed a button on the side of his cowl.

"Night vision engaged." a voice echoed.

He pressed another button, and saw body heat coming from the other side of the wall...four of them.

Without hesitation, Batman rushed into the hallway.

"IT'S THE BAT!"

"THOUGHT HE WAS DEAD!"

"DOESN'T MATTER! KILL IT!"

Machine guns fired rapidly at him. He narrowly dodged the fire, and a few bullets even grazed him. He reached into his belt and pulled out four batarangs, throwing them swiftly to disarm them. One of them stupidly rushed him, and was easily sidestepped. A chop to the back of the man's neck incapacitated him.

Batman went on the offense for his next target, throwing a punch dead on to his face. then throwing him into another man. The last one took a swing at him; Batman ducked under his punch, then used the leverage to throw his opponent. Taking time to inspect them, he noticed the number two, each with it's own suit, emblazoned over their hearts.

Batman then heard a voice...it was coming from the radio of a downed criminal.

"*KZZZT* You guys okay?" The static-y voice asked.

Batman picked up the radio, using his skills to disguise his voice. "We're fine. Where are you?"

"In the *KZZZZT* --obby

Wayne Tower: Lobby:

The Jack was terrified

"Sh-shouldn't they be back by now?" One of them asked, wiping the sweat off his brow.

"I think so..." the King answered. "....But even if the bat is back, and he's got 'em, we've got a way to deal with him.

As if in response, the Ping of the elevator singaled it's reaching the lobby. The King motioned for the Jack to check it out.

"Go...and pray to God it's not the bat."

The Jack hurried into the elevator, and noticed a strange sphere dead center. Leaning in closer to get a better look, he heard a beep, and wound up inhaling a mouthful of knockout gas.

"JACK!" The King said, rushing into the elevator. "JACK! JACK? WHERE ARE YOU?" The King looked up to see a hole in the roof of the elevator. Suspecting King already knew, Batman dove through the hole, slamming his fist into his face. King laughed. "It's gonna take a lot more than that to stop me." He delivered a kick to Batman's chest. He could tell from the force that he was using some drug. Venom, perhaps, maybe steroids? Whatever it was, he had to end it quick.

Batman threw a roundhouse kick, knocking the man in the jaw. The man countered with an uppercut. Batman grunted as he threw a punch to a few pressure points All of them blocked. The man dove out of the way of his next punch, and Batman hurt his hand on the side of the elevator. The King tackled him, forcing him out of the elevator. He noticed that the Cops had used the time he bought them to clear out the workers at Wayne tower. That thought did not stay for long, however, as the King began bashing his head on the ground. Batman threw one final last ditch effort to gain the upper hand. His blow miraculously landed on the King's solar plexus, injuring him badly.

Batman grabbed him by the throat and lifted him up into the air, proclaiming.

"WHY?!!"

We-we needed to!" King pleaded, crying for mercy. "Joker gave us instructions! If you were ever to return, to take Wayne tower hostage....he always had a hunch...you'd respond to this kind of thing..." The King then smiled. "And he was right...heh." What started out as a giggle, turned into maniacle laughter, as the King pointed to a time bomb....

....With two seconds left on the clock.

Great Batsy! I liked the surprise ending of the chapter. Can't wait to see what will Batman do to stop the bomb.
