Synopsis for "Ballistic"
Ballistic arrived at the warehouse to find Batman against a trio gang, the Malevolent Maniaxe. Ballistic tells Batman to team up again to oppose the trio. In a handicap match a gunfire started. At that time in Blackgate Penitentiary, Henry Etchinson called his lawyer Winston Brock to make sure the bounty over his cousin, Abattoir, was already set.
Back at the warehouse the gunfire escalated quickly and it started a fire. The trio escaped and left Ballistic and Batman to save some knocked out thugs from burning. Batman and Ballistic headed to the last person involved with Abattoir in the past; the owner of a night club whose name was Raf Luxor. The Malevolent Maniaxe did the same and arrived first at the place and killed Luxor. Batman and Ballistic defeated the trio and asked them why were they pursuing Abattoir; and so they learned of the hundred thousand bounty on Abattoir.
Batman and Ballistic went to Brock's place and demanded info on Henry Etchinson's real state property as well as payment in advance. Batman told Ballistic to take all the money as he just wanted the information. When Batman left the place, Ballistic tied up Brock and called the police to take him over the blood money contract. After that he decided to leave Gotham City.
