Synopsis for "Prey, Conclusion: The Kill"

For several days following Strange's attack, Batman sequesters himself in the Batcave, trusting its darkness and solitude to reaffirm his purpose and heal his psyche. This process succeeds, but at the cost of giving the Night-Scourge free rein over Gotham; all the while, Strange continues to push his every advantage, even publicly threatening to reveal Batman's secret identity.

Batman contacts Gordon and asks him for one last chance to prove his innocence. He then confronts Strange, who is dressed in a Batman costume; Strange gloats that he has defeated Batman, only to be thrown when Batman claims both that he never dreams and that his parents are alive in Paraguay, undermining Strange's confidence in his analysis of Batman. Gordon and a police officer then storm the apartment, having overheard Strange confessing to his plans, and discovering the Mayor's daughter in the room where she is imprisoned. Strange is arrested, but overpowers the officer and flees; before he can escape, he encounters the anti-vigilante taskforce, who mistake him for Batman and shoot him. He falls into the river.

Batman hunts Max Cort, who is preparing to resume his activities as the Night Scourge; the two fight, and are evenly matched until Catwoman appears and disarms Cort of his swords, to return the debt she owes Batman for previously intervening to prevent Cort from killing her. Batman overpowers Cort, who flees to police headquarters; Batman pursues him in a specialised bat-themed car that he built during his recuperation in the Batcave. On arriving at headquarters, Cort is confronted by his fellow officers, who realise that he is the Night-Scourge; Batman and Gordon reveal Cort's role in Strange's plan. Cort draws a gun and tries to shoot Batman, but is killed by his fellow officers.

In gratitude to Batman and Gordon, the Mayor orders the disbanding of the anti-vigilante taskforce; while Batman is still not officially condoned,he nevertheless is trusted more by the authorities and people of Gotham. Gordon reveals that Strange's body was never found, prompting Batman to muse that he may still be alive.
