Synopsis for "Injustice: Gods Among Us - Chapter 17"
Catwoman is seen in an alleyway, commentating the past life of a man, Joey, who lost his job and wealth to the recession. He was shot and killed by a vigilante, inspired by Superman's murder of The Joker. Selina laments the fact that he was a harmless criminal, versus the suited and rich businessmen who steal far more money than thugs with guns. As she enters the house of a wealthy bank owner and breaks into his lockbox filled with cash and gems. As Selina contemplates taking some of the cash back to Joey's family, Superman appears and alerts the banker to both his and Catwoman's presence.
She flies out the window, but Superman catches her before she can escape further. When they come to the ground, Kal writhes in pain due to Selina's earring made of Kryptonite that she had stolen from the Batcave. As she enters a sewer, Superman superheats the Kryptonite and forces her to take it off and throw it into the water below.
Initially, Selina believes Kal will kill her in the sewers. However, he tells her that he only wants to talk. Kal informs Selina that Richard died, and that she needs to comfort Bruce. Catwoman laughs at Superman, saying Batman would rather take a bullet for Superman, and Superman would rather fight Doomsday to the death than talk to each other.
When Superman pleads further, she agrees to go, but informs Superman that there are more people who are in need other than those in war-torn countries. Selina tells Kal to "Remember all of the displaced people right here at home. Don't forget them."
At Wayne Manor, Selina tries to enter but the door is locked. She breaks in and walks in on Alfred drinking, alone. Alfred is visibly upset and does not appear to have slept for quite some time. As she walks in on him, Alfred appears aghast at himself and tries to go fetch some tea. However, Selina calms him down, saying "I'll be looking after you for a change."
Selina descends into the Batcave, where Batman, still in his suit, has been repeatedly punching a wooden post for an unknown amount of time. His hands are very bloody, and he is extremely upset and crying. His hands are visibly bloody and his gloves have worn away to reveal cracked skin beneath. Selina pries Bruce away and takes off his mask. She tells him to let go, relax, and that she'll hold him together as he crumples into a heap on the ground.
