Batman has just kidnapped Dick Grayson, a traumatized young boy who just saw his parents get killed. However, although Batman believes his crime to have been unwitnessed, Vicki Vale remembers everything. Batman continues to flee from the Police, as he drifts in and out of his persona. No matter what the police throw at them, Batman pulls increasingly insane stunts, eventually flying over them. As they fly through the air, Dick Grayson relents and tells Batman that he'll be brave. He apparently agrees subconsciously to join Batman's war.
