Synopsis for "Knightquest: The Search"

Bruce Wayne and Alfred land in Santa Prisca in Bruce's private plane looking for Shondra Kinsolving and Jack Drake. Unbeknownst to them their landing is being watched by a group of local terrorists. No sooner do Alfred and Bruce, in his technologically advanced wheelchair built by Harold, get off the plane, that they are confronted by the group. Even though Bruce gasses one of them, the others are ready to kill him. Bronze Tiger appears out of nowhere and takes care of the rest of them, but Bruce allows them to escape.

Bronze Tiger accompanies Bruce and Alfred to a local hotel where they are met by Gypsy. Bruce gives the two the lowdown of the mission and the location of the terrorists' hacienda from a homing device he concealed on one of them. Suddenly another terrorist appears on the balcony of the hotel room ready to shoot out the heroes, but from another rooftop Green Arrow shoots the guy in the arm. Bronze Tiger and Gypsy go to check out the terrorist location, while Bruce calls Robin in Gotham City. He tells Robin that somebody at the Gotham airport tipped off the terrorists about his and Alfred's arrival and reassures Robin he'll find his father.

Gypsy infiltrates the hacienda of the terrorists, who are waiting for Mr. Asp to arrive. Shondra is denied to attend to a very sick Jack Drake. When word gets back that the hotel terrorist failed, the rest go back armed with rocket launchers and blow up the hotel.
