Synopsis for "Pushback Book 4"
In Star City, Prometheus is in a fire-fight with the police, when Green Arrow interjects and forces him to drop his weapons by shooting him. Prometheus pulls the arrows out, but collapses. Green Arrow fires what seems to be a killing shot, but Prometheus is pulled out of the way in the nick of time. Hush has rescued him, and a policeman tries to take him. Hush throws the cop from a tall building, allowing him to escape while Green Arrow tries, and fails, to catch him with a parachute arrow. The cop lands on a car far below. Safely away, Prometheus threatens to shoot Hush unless he explains his actions. Hush diagnoses the extent of Prometheus' injuries, and invites him to help his efforts to kill Batman. He agrees, before collapsing. While taking Prometheus away, Green Arrow appears and shoots, blowing up something. In the skies, the Bat-plane hurries towards Star City. Batman tells Oracle that he doesn't want to argue with Green Arrow, and so decides not to contact him. At a motel, an employee is well-paid to deliver ice and a tarpaulin. Inside the room in question, Hush is performing emergency surgery to remove the arrows from Prometheus. Batman arrives, and find the carnage left by Hush and Prometheus, including the cop's body. Green Arrow accuses him of not doing the best by not contacting him. In the motel, Hush has successfully removed the arrows. At the crime scene, Batman briefly explains who Hush is. Green Arrow gets angry, and shoots at Batman as he's leaving. Meanwhile, Hush stitches Prometheus back together. On the roof tops, Batman and Green Arrow fight, before Green Arrow realises that Batman did what he thought best. He goes to tell the dead cop's family what happened, and Batman follows. Elsewhere, Prometheus wakes up. In the suburbs, Batman admits that Green Arrow was right. He lets Green Arrow continue, deciding to return to Gotham.
