Even as high up in the concert hall as he was, Batman could hear the infamous diva rounding out her second song. It, along with having to continue watching over the way Lady Gaga scandalized his mother's name, was a small price to pay when it came to dispensing
justice. He tapped a pad on his cowl, switching on his infrared vision. Most of it was expected. Throngs of young people, a few stage hands, a gyrating and gesticulating singer, and just as Selina had told him: backup dancers in the very obvious shape of Dodo

"Thank you! I hope you're all having loads of fun, we wouldn't want to let down Mrs. Wayne, right?" Lady Gaga called out to her cheering, adoring audience. With all the amorous smiles, she couldn't help giving them back one of her own. "This next song is a
little something I think says everything this concert is all about. Love, baby! So let's pump this one up to the heavens and make sure Mrs. Wayne can hear and party with us!"
Batman shivered at that line, perhaps for the first time in his career, and shot his grappling hook to one of the high lights. He swung high over the crowd, his boots narrowly skimming the angle of cameras rolling to record the whole sordid display below. As

"From White Queen to Sheep! Oh yes, oh yes!" the Mad Hatter tittered. "A fitting fate for the likes of her, to be stripped of her rank and serve my... ack!"
The Mad Hatter turned just in time to see the dark rush of Batman's fist before it planted into his face, knocking him out instantly.
