- When you're fighting for what you believe in-- for what's right-- you find out just how alone you are. Every time you face up to evil, you have to beat it. But you only have one life... and you can't afford to lose it. It's a knife-edge not many can walk. Sometimes... even heroes fall.
Synopsis for "No More Heroes"
Batman and Robin chase four thugs into Hero World, an amusement park dedicated to all sorts of heroes. Unknown to them, there is a young sniper hiding inside the amusement park, waiting for the right moment to shoot at members of the young street gang known as the Yung Bluds.
Batman and Robin capture two of the four thugs at the entrance of the park, but the other two go inside and mingle with the people. While Batman and Robin are looking for them, the sniper shoots a Yung Blud and distracts the heroes. Robin goes to investigate the disturbance while Batman chases the thugs.
Batman captures one of them, just as Robin finds the sniper's hidind place. The killer is merely a teenager, seeking revenge for the death of his brother, who was a police officer addicted to the drugs sold by the Yung Bluds. The young sniper is disturbed and remorseful for his actions, but with Robin's help, he gives himself up instead of taking more drastic actions.
Meanwhile, Batman struggles against the last of the thugs. He has a hostage and forces Batman to put himself under a space rocket, which starts engines every minute or so. Hoping to get Batman burned by the engines, the thug awaits patiently, pointing his gun at the helpless hostage, who is the owner of the amusement park. Robin gets a glimpse of the situation and jumps to help Batman. Robin saves the hostage and Batman jumps out of danger just in time.
After saving the day, Robin decides to take a walk with the young sniper to talk about the situation and Batman also leaves the place satisfied with Robin's performance, while the owner of the amusement park decides to include new attractions featuring Batman and Robin.
