Batman reaches the small boat where the sailor, the magnate and his fiancee have managed to use in order to save their lives, but the rest of the crew is dead. They sail to a nearby island, which seems abandoned at first sight, but Batman notices that there is definitely someone in that place. After saving the three people from lethal traps, Batman goes into the island to find the killer. Shortly after, Batman realizes that he has been lured away from his companions and he rushes back, but falls for a trap in the midst of the jungle. From the shadows comes a nimble man, the same responsible for trying to kill the magnate. The man tells Batman that he has a mission to accomplish and that after he's finished, he would come back to kill him as well.
Batman breaks free from the trap and he heads to the camping site where the magnate and the others are waiting for his return. He arrives in time to prevent the assassin from killing them and they start fighting each other. The assassin reveals that he is part of a larger faction known as the League of Assassins, which cannot be bribed or stopped. The killer gets the upper hand in the fight and he gets ready to eliminate Batman, when he is suddenly blinded by some flares that explode on Batman's cape, which was burning in the fire. Batman takes the chance to defeat the assassin, but he knows that he is just a pawn in a larger scheme, orchestrated by a master criminal mind.
