After years of fighting, Bruce was finally sent back home with Harvey and whoever survived the war. Bruce and the rest parted ways as he made his way to Wayne Manor. He was taken in by Alfred, who took care of any wounds that hadn't healed right. However, Bruce believed that his time in the war didn't save anyone and that he killed more people than he saved.

Alfred is disappointed by this but understand and helps Bruce create his costume and equipment. The next night, a group of criminals are trying to transport a weapon to an unknown man when Bruce shows up in his suit and begins fighting.
