Synopsis for "Four Feet Under"
The next day, Kate finds herself training at the Paone Western Village which is 30 miles outside of LA. Kate battled animatronic versions of Cheetah (Ballesteros) and Solomon Grundy. She beheads Cheetah and blows Solomon's head off with her newly improved bo staff. She then encounters Mark Shaw's version of the Manhunter. The Manhunter manages to psyche out Kate with its gadgets but Kate quickly figures out that Dylan is behind the mask. She aims her bo staff at Dylan's crotch and warns him about his next move. Dylan points out that he designed a bio-electric field within Kate's suit. It will feel like a second skin that can heighten her reflexes, amps up her strength as well as a tracking system positioned on the left side of her breast plate. Dylan managed to recover some shadow residue from Shadow-Thief on Kate's suit. Now, if Shaodw-Thief is within 2 miles of Kate, she will know it. The tracking system is designed like a star and it glows brighter the closer Shadow-Thief is to Kate. Dylan also enhanced Kate's gauntlets which will deliver a shocking result for Shadow-Thief.
After training with Dylan, Kate goes to see Ramsey at the hospital. Peter stops her before she could go in to see Ramsey. Peter informs Kate that he has a temporary court order that prevents Kate from seeing Ramsey and he is filing for full custody. Kate angrily pushes Peter to a wall but Peter brushes it off as her way of not being able to deal with defeat. Kate walks off and leaves without seeing her son. She heads to her office where her paralegal Damon Matthews introduces her to members of the Justice League. John Stewart is accompanied by Martian Manhunter, Vixen and Hawkman. J'onn J'onzz informs Kate that the Justice League will be observing the Los Angeles area since Shadow-Thief was last seen with the Manhunter before he murdered Firestorm. Kate completely understand and thanks the Justice League for the courtesy call.
Kate suits up for another night and uses her tracking system to locate Shadow-Thief. Her tracking system guides her to the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. Kate goes up and down the grounds until the very earth shakes beneath her feet. All of a sudden Copperhead's corpse pops up from under the ground. Copperhead's corpse is being controlled by Shadow-Thief's new found ability in necromancy. Copperhead's corpse restrains Kate while Shadow-Thief uses the shadow goo that he excretes, to choke the life out of Kate. Kate uses her gauntlets to shock Copperhead's corpse then she uses them on Shadow-Thief. The pain from the gauntlets sends a shock to Shadow-Thief. As Kate tries to gather herself, she notices the Green Lantern flying by. John Stewart spots Shadow-Thief lying incapacitated on the cemetery grounds. Kate runs for cover and John creates a barrier around Shadow-Thief with his ring. Both Hawkman and Vixen want to finish off Shadow-Thief for what he did to Firestorm but J'onn J'onzz tells them to stand down. As the authorities arrive to escort Shadow-Thief to a specialized holding cell, J'onn senses Kate's thoughts as she makes her exit. J'onn has deduced that Kate Spencer is the Manhunter while Kate's bout with the Shadow-Thief isn't over. She intends to prosecute him to the full extent of the law.
