Synopsis for "I Am Gotham, Part One"

High into the sky, an airliner begins its final descent into Gotham. On the ground, Batman and Commissioner Gordon talk about Kobra’s recent theft of three military missiles. Two were recovered by the GCPD, but the third one has been fired on the airliner and causes it to plummet towards the ground. With Duke’s help, Batman tracks the plane’s fall in the Batmobile. Alfred informs Batman the Justice League is unavailable, but Batman is not concerned. Gotham is his city and he will save it.

Using the Batmobile’s ejector seat, Batman reaches the falling plane and hangs onto one of its wings. At the same time, Gordon attempts to evacuate the majorly populated areas. The estimated crash site will be the Kane Plaza. Batman’s plan is to stabilize the plane enough to land it in the water. He attaches thrusters into the plane’s wings, effectively turning the airliner into the new Batplane.

To steer the plane and save the passengers, Batman must remain on top of the plane at all times, which means he will take the full force of the collision and get killed. Solemnly, Alfred promises to pass his regrets to his allies and Batman asks him if his mom and dad would be proud of him. Alfred sadly assures him they are, and this is a good death for a hero like him.

Suddenly, against all odds, the plane slows down and lands gently on Gotham’s harbor. It has been saved by two figures resembling Superman and Supergirl. They are Gotham and Gotham Girl, and much like Batman, they are here to save their city.
