Synopsis for "Rooftops, Part 1 of 2"
Batman and Catwoman meet on a rooftop. After the events at Santa Prisca, where she helped Batman subdue and take Psycho-Pirate away, she's been granted a life sentence in prison instead of her death penalty. He intends to take her to Blackgate tonight; she has other ideas in mind, as she kisses him under the stars. Catwoman turns away from him, saying that she wants this night, only this night, which shines like a diamond, then they can take her life. Batman is convinced that she didn't actually kill 237 people and he intends to prove it, but she needs to comply and do what she's told: if he lets her have the night, she'll surely run away and he'll surely run after her. Catwoman manages to persuade him to spend a night together and as she suggests to do that between sheets, he sees the Bat-Signal, meaning they have work to do.
In a clocktower, Clock King explains to Batman that he's been preparing for this confrontation for four years, meaning the only possible outcome is his death: unfortunately, the villain hadn't considered one variable, Catwoman, who crashes through the clock window and knocks him out. She hopes this means they're free to spend the night otherwise, but... Gotham's villains never sleep. Batman and Catwoman take on a plethora of minor villains, including -and concluding with- Kite-Man (Hell yeah!).
Now that they have done what Batman likes, it's Catwoman's turn: they break into an apartment, property of a Holly Robinson, to steal the Victoria Cat, an artifact that was stolen from the Gotham Museum of Fine Arts four years before. Turns out that Holly Robinson is actually Catwoman herself, who played a prank on Batman and now suggests him to jump off the window to evade an explosion triggered by the removal of the artifact from its place.
Back on the rooftops, Catwoman rips the Cat apart and gives Batman a handful of diamonds to build a dozen orphanages with. But first, as she scatters the diamonds on the ground, they will stop doing what they have to do and spend some time doing what they want to. They undress each other and make love under the light of the stars and the Bat-signal.
