Blackgate Prison

Guard:

Prisoner Hugo

(Rowland Daggett

is thrust into his office
)

Hugo Strange:

Ah yes, Rowland Daggett, responsible for putting much of the funding
towards the pri
son city projects. Tell me
, did

you think the prison cities were
of benefit to the world?

Daggett:

I believed I’d make a return on the investment reasonably quickly

Hugo:

And yet here you are

Daggett:

What’s your point?

Hugo:

How would you like to be free
of this prison right now, and get your revenge
on the Batman?

Daggett:

You’d do that

Hugo:

I have studied Batman for many years in the intent to remove him as this
city’s protector. I have finally discovered who he is, but I will need your help
to remove h
im

Daggett:

I don’t want to be connected to this

Hugo:

Don’t worr
y, my plan will keep you as Mr C
lean, I promise (there is a bug
underneath the table in Strange’s office)

That’s what he thinks

Arron’s cruiser

Anarax:

Anything happened

Arron:

5 days, and nothing

has happened

Hugo Strange:

Ah yes, Rowland Daggett, responsible for putting much of the funding
towards the prison city projects. Tell me, did you t
hink the prison cities were
of benefit to the world?

Daggett:

I believed I’d make a return on the investment reasonably quickly

Hugo:

And yet here you are

Arron:

What?

Anarax:

It’s happening again

Arron:

We’ve been conned, the escape could have happened da
ys, even weeks ago.
I’ll have to change my approach

Anarax:

What is this about anyway?

Arron:

Hugo Strange’
s profile was up on the UN records Batman downloaded, he
was, he was expected to be the psychiatrist that vis
ited prisons to gain
profiles to use to
speed up the process on other worlds, but he pulled out,
and Gal replaced him with a young hypnotist called Jenny Downs, I want to
know why? And if at the same I time I save Batman from a trap, so be it

Anarax:

So what now

Arron:

I think it’s time I paid h
im a visit

--------------

Blackgate Prison 15:15 ED
T

Hugo Strange’s office

Arron opens the door, the office is empty

<Arron>:

He’s not here, I’m downloading prison records, maybe I can find out where
Daggett was being held

(he places a memory stick

into th
e port, data is being
downloaded)

Anarax:

Receiving data, shouldn’t take too long, it’s not very well encrypted here

Arron:

It’s like Hugo wants me to receive this data, what’s he up to? (He hears a
clapping)

Hugo:

I knew someone was listening in

on my con
versation, so I set up a trap to
expose you

Arron:

Congratulations
, I’ll be back for you (he removes the memory stick and
disappears into the shadows)

---------------------

Arron’s ship 15:39 ED
T

Anarax:

What did that accomplish exactly?

Arron:

I set my vi
sor to record when I came in, skip to the point where Hugo found
me

Anarax
:

Got it

Arron:

Look at his belt

buckle.

Anarax:

(Zooms in on it) is that what I think

it is?

Arron:

Yup, the symbol on it seems to match the one on my body armour, computer
match 99
.99%, that’s a Sarrahian council seal of approval. What is he up to?

Anarax:

So what now

Arron:

I got a tracer on him, time to do some reconnaissance

---------------------

Gotham Park Towers 19:45 ED
T

Anarax:

You’ve been following him for 4 hours

Ar
ron:

Ye
ah, and he hasn’t done anything more suspicious than taking a shower (he
tweaks his visor and sees that he has no heat signature) I don’t believe it

Anarax:

What
?

Arron:

I’ve been set on a wild goose chase; he’s a sophisticated hologram, not unlike
the mir
ror tech Gal used to fool me last year.

Anarax:

Your tracers are all but microscopic, how did he find

it?

Arron:

Because he knows how to look for them. Keep the ship on auto
-
pilot,

then
teleport me back to Sarrah
. It’s the only way to find him


Scene 2

Fo
rbien’s house, Sarrah, 18
th

April 13:00 (Local time)

Forbien enters his house

Arron:

Afternoon off work
?

Forbien:

What are you doing here?

Arron:

Hugo Strange, what do you know about him?

Forbien:

Never heard of him

Arron:

Don’t lie to me, Forbien, I can a
lways tell. Hugo Strange had the Sarrahian
seal on his belt buckle, and knew how to find a tracking device I planted on
him, something only high level policemen
or

Council agents can do. TALK!

Forbien:

I don’t like your tone

Arron:

Fine! If that’s the way
you want to play it, guess who I brought to the party
?
(A
n android kno
cks

the d
oor down) the AMAZO mk2 android, r
eprogrammed
to follow my orders, alw
ays knew it would come in handy
. Start talking or I’ll
have him do something unspeakable

AMAZO:

Access: Sup
erman (his eyes glow red)

Forbien:

Very well. Hugo Strange is a human council agent

Arron:

What is he doing in Blackga
te Prison? And why has he done p
sychological
research on Batman

Forbien:

It’s quite simple; we have to assess Earthlings who may be a thre
at. In your
report you have listed many of them,

we now have human agents studying
them and reporting should the need ever arise to take them down

Arron:

Then w
hy did Strange talk about taking

them out now
?

Forbien:

It’s quite simple, we told him to elimin
ate the threat

Arron:

(Growls) shut down the project, or I’ll be back. (Arron disappears into the
Shadows)

Forbien:

(Dials a number of the phone) Forbien to council, we have a situation

April 19:25 ED

Daggett:

So let me
get this
straight, Bruce Wayne is Batman

Hugo:

Indeed, and to remove him entirely, Bruce Wayne must be brought out of
business.

Arron:

Your business is concluded Hugo. You’re out of plays now, I’ve found you

Hugo:

Impressive indeed, very impressive

Arron:

I think y
ou’ll find you need a cell in Blackgate rather than an office

Hugo:

Mr Daggett, you know what to do?

Daggett:

Yeah, I do (he fires a rocket, Arron cross his arms in front of his chest; his
arms shield him from the
blast, but there is a smoke
-
screen and the
y escape)

Arron:

Damn it, but if they’re after Batman, I know exactly where they’ll strike next

--------------

Wayne Industries Building 18
th

April 10:56 ED
T

Bruce Wayne:

Wayne Industries

has made substantial investment into the city, it is essential
that
we start to re
-
engage our revenue streams or

else face administration

Men in Metal armoured suits surround the meeting

Knight 1:

Administration it is (he holds a gun at Bruce’s head, suddenly a disk smashes
through the window and disarms the Knight, Arron
glides in and punches him
in the face before landing on the floor)

Arron:

Everyone out of this room, NOW

(he jumps onto his hands and kicks two
knights at once, he returns to his feet and elbows another knight in the face)
could really use Batman about now

(
Bruce Wayne n
ods and blends into the
shadows, the knights begin to shoot lasers, Arron shields himself, Batarangs
begin to disarm the knights of their guns)

Batman:

Who do these guys work for?

Arron:

Hugo Strange, h
e’s a human agent of Sarrahian C
ouncil
operation I’m
intending to shut down. There’s a sniper on a rooftop here, find him, I’ll finish
this (Batman leaves, Arron gets out his gun and loads the electrical blaster
gun) metal armour, mistake

(he fires the blaster and electrocutes a Knight,
the ele
ctrical blast ricochets onto the other knights, knocking them out)

---------------

Federal gold reserve rooftop

Sniper:

Target lost (no response, Batman is right behind him and knocks him out, but
a device below the sniper activates, trapping Batman)

Hugo:

I am better than you Mr Wayne, now I can prove it (he takes off Batman’s
mask, revealing Arron beneath)

Arron:

Surprise (the trap disperses and Arron punches Hugo in the face)

Hugo:

I cannot end like this (a rope is thrown around him, thrown by Batman)

Ar
ron:

Look down Hugo (Hugo looks into the Wayne industries Building Bruce
Wayne is still there)

Hugo:

Impossible.

Arron:

Everything you knew about Batman was a
lie;

put that report to the council.
And now I have evidence of your attempt on the life of Bruc
e Wayne, you’re
place in Blackgate is secured, and so is Daggett’s

Hugo:

Everything I thought I knew.

Arron:

Oh and one last thing (he punches Hugo, knocking him out) nicely done
Batman (the Batman reveals himself to be the AMAZO android in disguise)
amazi
ng what tricks and holograms can do.

April 23:45 (Local)

Arron:

They did what!

Anarax:

I’m sorry; reports of nearly 50 people killed by snipers, all wearing the council
symbol somewhere.

Arron:

(Growls)

Anarax:

Don’t. Takin
g the fight to council is suicide, and you still don’t know what
they’re up to.

Arron:

We better find out fast, or this is gonna get very ugly.
