Synopsis

A cold Winter’s eve finds Wonder Woman in Gotham City on the trail of a crime ring. One of the links in the ring is Killer Croc. She easily overpowers Croc and his henchman and both are taken into custody by Commissioner Barbara Gordon and Chief O’Hara’s daughter.

A clue indicates that Croc is working with The League of Shadows. Diana asks Barbara if she can summon Batman. Gordon tells the Princess that Batman has retired. Nightwing, formerly known as Robin has taken his place.

Diana goes to Wayne Manor to encourage Bruce to come out of retirement. He confesses that he ended his career as Batman after a particular gruesome encounter with The Joker. He suggests she locates Nightwing and works with him. She finds him at Snake Creek Canyon. Copperhead is taking revenge on Catwoman for “ratting” him out. Diana helps Dick rescue Catwoman and capture Copperhead who is then incarcerated at Arkham.

While Diana, Dick and Catwoman compare notes at the feline fatale’s club, Bruce consults the Batcomputer and listens to his “Alfred conscience”. They all come to the same conclusion as Talia arrives at Catwoman’s club and Ra’s appears in the Batcave.
