Synopsis for "Medicine Soldiers"
Man-of-Bats and Raven Red break into a house and discover a dead woman and a lonely child. Man-of-Bats discovers a note that says that the mother committed suicide because she believed she was not taking good care of her child. Man-of-Bats and Raven Red tell the police about what happen.
Later, Bill talks to the boss of the hospital he works at. There, the boss talks about his activities as Man-of-Bats, saying that they could have an impact in the hospital. But Bill says that he is helping people and he is investigating about the Redz Gang's recent activities.
At night, Man-of-Bats and Raven Red drive through a neighborhood in search for clues about the Redz Gang. Suddenly, Man-of-Bats sees Sam Black Elk attacking a dog. Man-of-Bats interrogates him but when Sam refuses to answer, Man-of-Bats attacks him until he finds a small bag of cocaine. The police arrive and arrests Sam, while Raven leaves, saying that he is tired that his father puts his crimefighting job over his own family.
Raven gets to the Bat's cave where he is met by Batman, who tells him that Leviathan is after him and his father. Batman offers Raven to help them.
Meanwhile, the police car gets out of town and the driver is revealed to be a Leviathan agent and kills the other cop. Sam, calling himself Red Rippa, is also a Leviathan agent. Red Rippa stabs Man-of-Bats in the stomach while the driver takes the car to a place with Leviathan agents.
Suddenly, Batman and Raven Red appear and fight the Leviathan agents. Suddenly, a group of civillians appear and take Red Rippa down, but Man-of-Bats is injured.
Later, Raven Red gives Man-of-Bats a blood transfusion. Batman leaves, but not before offering his support to Raven Red.
