Synopsis for "Street Thunder"

Taking place shortly after the events of Catwoman 34, Selina returns to her home, "The Nest", to find Lieutenant James Rigs investigating the spot where Detective Dean Hadley was shot and murdered by an automated sniper rifle set up by Karl Valley. Selina explains the bullet was meant for her sister while she would be forced to watch her die. Rigs explains how they searched the rubble of the explosion aftermath from the events Catwoman 34, but found no traces of Karl Valley, not realizing that Valley himself was disguised as a firefighter during the search efforts. As a result of these events, Selina sends her sister Maggie out of Gotham to safety on a nearby boat.

Meanwhile in Alleytown, Clayface forms an alliance of heroes between old villains Firefly, Killer Croc, Cheshire and Knockout as an opportunity to atone for their past misdeeds by assisting Catwoman in destroying the recent oppressive Magistrate occupation of Alleytown. It is their hope that after helping, they may be allowed to call Alleytown home if they prove victorious.

Back at 'The Nest', Selina receives the warning on her phone from the hacked Oracle (see Fear State Alpha and Batman #112), stating Batman is dead. Leo tells Selina to go into Gotham to investigate and verify the message authenticity. She takes a motorcycle rigged with timed explosives and leaves for Gotham.

At a nearby safehouse, The Penguin speaks with Riddler about an opportunity to take over the Alleytown docks, stating the "Bat-lings" are occupied with a city falling apart and the Magistrate is occupied within the city itself. Penguin explains that Poison Ivy is also a key piece of Simon Saint's drugs and is currently located in subterranean Alleytown. Taking over Alleytown would mean they have control of her and the key piece of evidence likely to sink Saint Industries, linking them to the recent Cheerdrops drugs in Gotham and the framed Unsanity Collective distributors.

Upon arriving in Gotham, Selina is immediately ambushed by Magistrate soldiers. She runs away to a nearby alley detonating the explosives beneath the motorcycle and takes a out a majority of the Magistrate soldiers. There, she meets with Cheshire Cat who tells Selina the current Oracle giving messages is an imposter and that the real Oracle is giving orders via a specified frequency on a local radio network. The real Oracle broadcasts that Alleytown is set to be shut down for good by an oncoming large force of Magistrate cybers and soldiers, and that help is on the way.

Meanwhile, Harley Quinn and the Gardener are shown walking into Alleytown.
