Synopsis for "Ballistic's Evidence"
Ballistic is hired by a group of suspicious men to recover some "evidence" from Gotham City. Ballistic told them that he was taking the case but that if it was something wrong, he woul do the right thing. They attacked him when they decided he was dangerous for them, but Ballistic wasn't hurt by their bullets. He took the fee money and set out to Gotham.
At the ruins of Gotham, a National Guard man is attacked by some gunsels and Batman saved his life. Ballistic arrived in time to help Batman with the snipers and after an unlikely greeting, Batman and Ballistic decided to join forces to clean the place from the hired thugs and recover the evidence Ballistic was looking for. Batman and Ballistic faced more thugs but the two of them took all of them out of the way with ease. Once they reached the target building, they found the evidence which turned to be a case full of drugs. Ballistic tossed it in the air and shot at it.
Ballistic told Batman that he was going to locate the people who hired him to turn them to the authorities and that he can join him if he wished to; but Batman replied that his place was in Gotham and nowhere else.
