" Batman is dead. "

" Not yet. " )

He'd found him in the place of Henri Ducard.

They fenced, wooden sword to wooden sword.

Batman wanted him for the death of Lamont Cranston.

" Why kill your descendant? "

" Cranston is but one of many faces I've worn over the centuries. " said the Shadow.

He went on, ascribing the modern-day Cranston's death to another: " The Stag has come for Gotham's best, Bruce. Reason will not defeat him. "

" Convenient alibi. But I won't play your game. "

" This is no game. It is a glimpse of the world you've found.. "

The Shadow exposited to Batman.  )

He'd been betrayed into his clutches.

He and the leaders of Prava, the group in Blackstone that cried " Freedom! " and meant it unreservedly, listened to the king with two crowns.

" I keep these cogs scared, sell them hope, and they pay me with their work.

" People will do anything for that, Petya. Anything.

" I made Blackstone a perpetual motion machine, grinding out people's lives and feeding me the fruits of their labor. "

" Fuck you, Ivan, and your machine. "

Ivan laughed. )

Members of Meshe Adam surrounded him.

Refusing to believe that his dead son'd been one of them, he killed them all.

The JLA followed him through time, back to the coming of Ahl, God of Super-Heroes.

They found Ahl at Chronos' mercy.

They grabbed him and fell back to what would be Mount Justice in the future.

The Ray threw up a castle of light.

The forces of Chronos pounded on its walls. )

Kiril lived a secretive life.

He chafed under its self-imposed constraints.

The people he shared it were made anxious by that.

" We love you, Kiril.

" But what we have stays here. Behind closed doors. We agreed. If we get too comfortable, bend the rules, we could make a mistake. "

" Someone could find out about us. "

" I told you, I don't care. "

He faced them. )

Two men faced the secret masters of the world.

The two who led the Silent Seven had a third on their side- Damian Wayne, Robin, claimed by Ra's and puppeted by Khan.

Batman faced Ra's and Damian in the Seven's headquarters.

The Shadow faced Khan in the latter's mind.

He fought with the power he'd realized when Khan'd had Damian take a shot at him.

Khan overpowered him, blowing holes in his self-conception.

" You were always going to die here. " he told the defeated Shadow.

" How could you possibly hope to defeat me in my own mind? "

The Shadow answered him. )
