Synopsis for "The Razor's Edge"
Catwoman finds herself inside of a submerged car. She knows what must be done to get out of the predicament she is in. When she reaches the surface, Hellhound and his ninjas take her back to the Collector's ship. She then agrees to listen to the Collector's story and the job he has for her.
The Collector tells Catwoman about an ancient wheel hidden deep in some ruins. He wants her to get inside and find that wheel as there are other powerful people trying to find it. The catch is that the place is full of traps and Catwoman is told to go inside and tell them about the traps when and if she comes out alive. Catwoman tries to escape but is soon overpowered by Hellhound and his ninjas. They knock her down and leave her in a cell until they reach their destination.
Once on the mainland, Catwoman is forced into a truck with Hellhound and some of his ninjas. They travel a long distance into some desert. They untie Catwoman and give her some clothing for the travel. They meet with a man named Umberto, an ex member of the Order of St. Dumas, that will help them to decipher the text of Eritrius, a kind of guide into the ruins and it's traps.
They arrive at the entrance of the ruins without noticing that they are being watched from afar by the League of Assassins. Catwoman and Umberto are told to enter the ruins while Hellhound and his ninjas wait outside. When Catwoman and Umberto disappear into the ruins, Hellhound and his ninjas are attacked and many of them are killed. Inside the ruins Catwoman and Umberto try to avoid activating the first of many traps without luck. They step over a trap door that opens at their feet and the two of them fall through a slide that ends in a razor's edge that will kill both of them if they reach the end.
