Synopsis for "Nightwing: Fear State, Part 1 of 3"

While in Bludhaven, Dick Grayson receives a severely distorted message through his earpiece from Oracle, stating her systems have been compromised and that it would be best to meet in person. She gives him a rendezvous location of Park Row in Gotham City. Debating leaving Bludhaven without a protector, Nightwing reluctantly agrees and leaves for Gotham on the Nightcycle. Dick is shocked upon his arrival into Gotham, seeing UFO like skybases and coming to the realization the Magistrate has militarized and is now in total control. Nightwing stealthily makes his way to the rendezvous point and finds himself in crime alley where Bruce Wayne's parents were killed. He is suddenly ambushed by a horde of Magistrate foot soldiers that attack without warning. Dick finds himself heavily outnumbered, and after a lengthy fight, surrenders to the Magistrate. At the final second, Batman (Bruce Wayne) swoops down and frees Dick where they together defeat the soldiers. Batman inquiries as to why Nightwing is there in the first place, to which Dick explains he received a signal from Oracle to meet. Batman explains Oracles systems have been hacked and relays the events from Fear State Alpha and Batman #112, stating any orders given by the new fake Oracle will more than likely be traps for anyone wearing masks. Batman leaves Nightwing to proceed with his primary mission of finding Scarecrow, telling Dick to meet Barbara Gordon at the Gotham Clocktower. At the tower, Barbara further reiterates that her systems have been compromised and is doing more harm than good under the control of an unknown person. She gears up into her Batgirl costume for the first time since The Joker War, and tells Nightwing she will accompany him on their mission to find the hacker.
