Batman (and Matches Malone), Doctor Blaine, Lo Ling, and a new partner Molly Post search out Ra's al Ghul in Switzerland. Upon finding a World War II bunker, Doctor Blaine uses his expertise to find a way inside. The newly formed team enters to find Talia and a deceased Ra's al Ghul. Batman takes Talia into custody, but not before Talia presses a secret button in the room - a secret button which lowers Ra's al Ghul into a Lazarus Pit...and revives him!
