Synopsis for "The Freebooters"
Nightwing patrols Bludhaven at the break of dawn when he decides to check upon Dick Grayson's new department. He ran into the superintendent Bridget but Dick, yet again, couldn't see her face. He spent most of the day cleaning up his new department, he received a call from the phone company with whom he discussed matters about his identity and his non-existent documents and he also stopped a robbery from his apartment's window. Dick Grayson started to think about the idea of being Bludhaven's protector.
At the Bludhaven's police department, Inspector Soames received an e-mail. Nightwing wanted to meet him at the Bludhaven's dump. Soames told Nightwing about a possible move from Black Mask at the Zee Moores.
Nightwing checked upon that zone and find about a moneylender working on the place. When Nighwtwing broke into the small container that the crook has adapted as an office he asked the man some questions which the man refused to answer. Suddenly a chopper approached the "office" and hooked the container lifting it up into the air with Nightwing and the moneylender inside. Nightwing managed to drop the moneylender out of the container before some False Facers descended from the chopper into the container. Nightwing faced once again the fox and his gang. All of them started to fight inside the container and that caused the chopper to lose height. The chopper pilots decided to drop the load before they crushed into some building and the container fell on a building's rooftop. The false facers got out of the container before it collapsed completely to the ground. Nightwing managed to jump out of the falling container and using a rope, he reached the rooftop and knocked all the false facers. Nightwing tied them and called for the police and warned fox about Black Mask's possible retaliation.
Nightwing contacted Batman and Robin and told them that he was still without a clue of those dead people that arrived at Gotham City's bay from Bludhaven. Batman offered to go and help Nightwing but he refused the help and told them that he was staying in Bludhaven because the city was full of violence, corruption and injustice and that he might like that city after all.
