I have a lot to deal with tonight. I need to analyze the data I have. It’s going to take a few hours.
“Good evening sir. Going out again are you?” Alfred spoke. He began tidying up the Batcave.
“I have to.” I answered him.
“Do be careful then sir.” Alfred responded.
“I will.” I told him. He left the cave after tidying up some more, and I went back to analyzing data.
I heard there was a new crime fighter in town, one who killed people. I had to find them and put a stop to it. Based on the location of the attacks, I have managed to calculate a likely area for him to show up at. I got my gear, and headed out to the docks.
Sure enough, I saw signs that he had been here. I found two thieves dead with bullet holes in them. I looked around from the rooftops, and saw a third one running away in panic. I quickly rushed over to him.
“Stop right there.” I said, appearing in front of him.
“Ple-please, you have to help me. He’ll kill me. He’s a maniac. Plea-“ Somebody fired a bullet at him, and he was dead too. I looked towards the source of the shot to see who fired it, to see it was a sniper from the bridge. I had to get there quickly, so I called the Batjet to myself, got in it quickly, and pursued the man. Whoever he was, this was going to end now.
I jumped out of the Batjet to jump in front of the man, and saw that he was heavily armed. His outfit was mostly black, except for a large white skull on the front. The teeth of the skull looked to be pouches that contained more ammunition. “Who are you, and what do you think you’re doing?” I asked the man.
“I’m the Punisher. I deal justice to criminal scum.” He said to me.
“Your kind of justice isn’t acceptable.” I responded. It really wasn’t. He killed people, and that was unacceptable.
“You should be glad Batman. I’m helping you out.” The Punisher said.
“No you’re not. You need to stop this now.” I ordered him. I doubted he would obey though. He didn’t seem like he would take orders from anybody anymore.
“Like you can stop me.” He said. He threw down a smoke bomb and drove off in his van. He was clearly trained, as he knew I would fight him if needed. He must be going to prepare for such an event.
I wouldn’t be able to follow him at the time being, but I did throw a tracer on his van, so I could track him later. For now, I had to head back to the Batcave.
I got back to the Batcave and headed straight for the computer. “Computer, run a background check on all known information of The Punisher.” I had to study him. Learn his fighting style. Prepare for the worst.
The next night there was a report that Killer Croc had escaped. This wasn’t good. I had to prepare for that too. After gathering my equipment, I headed into the Batmobile, and decided to follow The Punisher using the tracer I placed the previous night.
When I found him, he was going to kill another criminal at the docks, so I had to act fast. I quickly threw a Batarang at his gun. “Stop right there Punisher. This ends now.” I told him.
“You really want to fight. So be it. Let’s fight.” He responded. He pulled out another gun, and fired at me. I quickly rolled to the side and threw another Batarang. He charged at me and threw a punch, which I dodged, and then I punched him with the Battaser, which hit him and knocked him back.
Something rippled in the water. Something large. Killer Croc jumped out of the water, and attacked me.
“I’ve been waiting for a long time to get my revenge on you Batman!” He was about to slash at me, when Punisher shot him with a shotgun.
“I’m not going to let that happen.” He said.
“Who are you?” Croc demanded.
“That doesn’t concern you.” Punisher rushed forward and fired another shot. Killer Croc rushed forward and slapped the gun out of his hands, then I leaped at him and pounded him with the Battaser. He screamed in pain, then Punisher picked up his shotgun and aimed to shoot him.
“No! Don’t do this Punisher.” I demanded.
“Fine. Just this once I’ll play nice. I’ll leave Gotham, for now. But someday I may be back.” He picked up his guns. “Besides, this place was boring me. Too many freak shows around here, like talking bats.” He smiled and walked out.
“And I’ll be ready for you.” I said.
Note: I don't think I did that great on this one. I will try to improve as time passes. Some advice would be appreciated.
