Synopsis for "KnightsEnd, Part Four: Devils"
Batman returns to gather more information from the arms dealer fixer, Candy. The fixer tells him that the gunrunner who killed the dealer hangs out at the Gotham Navy Yard. Nightwing and Robin decide to find Bruce to tell him about Jean-Paul's actions. Batman arrives at the navy yard. After subduing a couple of thugs, he quickly becomes ambushed by a helicopter, which he promptly blows up. Suddenly a figure in a sophisticated bio-technical armor emerges and gets the jump on Batman. Batman eventually defeats the villain and severely burns him.
Near the Wayne Tower, Bruce encounters another endurance test of various ninjas which leads up to the final master. Both are equally matched, carefully observing and studying one another. Bruce finally gains the advantage but realizes that even though this is the "last" of the seven disciples, more will keep coming. He knows that Lady Shiva really wants him to kill for her pleasure alone. Bruce delivers the fatal leopard blow to the master just as Nightwing and Robin arrive just in time to see that Bruce Wayne has killed a man!
