"The Revelation?" Alfred asked.
"Yes." Bruce replied. "Amon said it's tomorrow night and it's going to be big."
"Maybe it's his grandmother's recipe." Alfred replied sarcastically.
Inside of a big, dark cave, Bruce stacked four flyers on top of his lab. Beside him, the walls were covered with weapons and armor upgrades he planned to use eventually. He also had mannequins covered with his costume ideas.
"The four papers he gave me form a map of Republic City." Bruce said. He then pointed at a red spot on it. "This spot was highlighted. Maybe that's where this Revelation is going to take place."
"Well, are you going in your formal wear, or will you be attending in a bit more… hardcore attire?" Alfred asked.
"At first, Amon was seen as a mere protester. But based on my talk with him, he's clearly onto something that could threaten all benders."
"Well, I guess that puts me in a pickle." Alfred said. He waved his hand and the tea he had finished brewing flew above him and landed into the two cups he had prepared for him and his master.
"Don't worry, Alfred. I won't let Amon do anything to you." Bruce promised as he took his cup.
"Let's save promises for after you find out what he's capable of."
"Right. Let's start with Amon's motives. He sees bending as a cruel power that no one should have. That it only promotes violence and hatred."
"Well, these bending gangs aren't really proving him wrong." Alfred said. "The Agni Kais. The Triple Threat Triads. They're all at the precipice of a full gang war."
"Perhaps Amon is planning on using it to his advantage." Bruce removed himself from the chair and approached his costume. "It's just a hunch, but I get the feeling I need to pay a visit to these gangs."
"I suppose this means you'll be going out in your evening wear?"
"How else can I get to the bottom of a strange man's plans?" Bruce asked as he took his costume from the stand.
One of Batman's best traits is that he likes to keep tabs on the hideouts of some of the street gangs. He couldn't make a move on them however unless he caught them doing something illegal. But if the Equalists were about to make a move, then the Triple Threat Triads were the prime targets.
Batman perched himself across the street from their hideout and stared right at it from above. His dark costume blended him nearly perfect with the night sky above him. While he waited, he had some time to think.
"If Amon's going to make a move, he has to to something before his Revelation tomorrow night. If I hated bending, I'd go after the biggest bending gang in town. The question is, what would Amon do if he got his hands on them?"
"Well, isn't this a surprise?" asked a woman behind Batman. The Dark Knight turned around to see a slender woman standing there. She approached him revealing her skin-tight body suit, black mask with cat-like ears, and red goggles over her eyes. "Don't tell me you're here to cash in on the Triads too."
"Who are you?" Batman asked confronting her.
"Easy there, big guy. They call me Catwoman. And you must be the infamous Batman. Let me guess, you're hoping to get something from the gangsters in there?"
"I'm here because of the Equalists. The Triple Threat Triads might just be in the crossfire."
"Don't tell me they roped you into this too."
Batman's interest was piqued. "Did you say 'too'? What do you mean by that?"
"Oh." Catwoman smiled. "So they didn't hire you. Guess that means I get the collateral to myself. Lucky me."
"What does that mean?" Batman asked. "What do you know of the Equalists?"
"Why would I tell you?" Catwoman asked. "What's in it for me?"
"If it turns out Amon is planning something illegal and you had a hand in it, that makes you an accessory." Batman said. "I'll have to turn you in. Your cooperation would lead to some leniency."
"You know, you'd have to catch me first if you want to turn me in." Catwoman said. "Luckily for you, I like a man in uniform, so I'll give you this freebie. Don't expect a habit out of it."
"Tell me what you know about the Equalists."
"I don't know what Amon is planning. All I know is that he hired me a few days ago for a special job." Catwoman explained. "He wanted me to stake out the Triple Threat Triads and give him details on their hideout. How many men they have. What heists they had planned. What sort of defenses they had. He wanted me to be very thorough."
"So he is going after the Triads." Batman reaffirmed.
"Last night, I gave him everything I could find and he paid me like he promised." Catwoman continued. "Then, I figured, if he was planning something with them, I could waltz in and take their assets afterwards. It would be a bonus."
"You're confessing to stealing right in front of me." Batman said.
"Hey, I told you I was giving you a freebie. Besides, they stole the money first. I'm just giving them a taste of their medicine."
Batman was about to respond when a large truck escaped from the hideout's alleyway. And right behind it was a large polar bear/dog with two teenagers riding on its back. The bear was chasing the truck down the street.
"Well, that was a thing." Catwoman said. "Hey, Bat-bo, what do you think of…" As she turned around, she noticed that Batman wasn't there anymore. She looked down and saw a large, black vehicle racing down the street. She noticed that it had Batman in the driver's seat.
"Mmm. My kitty senses are purring." Catwoman said giving a smile. She then looked at the abandoned hideout. "Still, more moolah for mama."
The kids on top of the polar bear/dog were Avatar Korra and Mako. They had come to the Triple Threat Triads' hideout to get their brother back, but when they got there, he and the rest of the gangsters were being kidnapped by Equalists without warning. Korra and Mako chased the Equalists until two of the chi-blockers immobilized Naga and engaged the two. Eventually, Korra and Mako were immobilized two and the Equalists were about to capture them too.
Then, from out of nowhere, a bright light engulfed them and the black car stopped right at them. The driver's door opened up and Batman sprung right out of it instantly stunning the Equalists with fright. While he was in the air, she threw two metal pellets right in front of them. They detonated and emitted a sudden flash of white light blinding them. Batman used the distraction to dropkick one of them backwards. He then flipped the other one over and still held onto his arm. Korra and Mako stood back up staring.
"Is that…" Korra asked in surprise. "I don't believe it! It's Batman!"
"What are you doing here?" Mako asked.
"Getting answers." Batman answered still holding onto the Equalist's arm. "Now then, what's the Revelation? What is Amon planning? And why did he just take those people?"
"We should be working together." The Equalist offered. "We know you're not a bender! And I know Amon will have a place of you if…" He stopped and screamed when Batman pulled his arm back cracking it a little.
"Hey!" Mako protested.
"That wasn't the question." Batman said. "What is the Revelation?"
"I don't know!" the Equalist shouted. "Only Amon and a few of his trusted elite know what he's planning!"
Batman stayed silent for a moment. He then pulled out a cable and tied the two Equalists with it. He shot them to a lamppost and left them hanging off of it. He then looked back at Korra and Mako.
"Were you about to break that guy's arm?" Mako asked.
"If I didn't believe him." Batman answered.
"Wow!" Korra gasped. "I don't believe it! You're Batman! I'm…"
"I know who you are, Korra." Batman said. "You're the latest Avatar, you're studying under Master Tenzin at the Air Temple, and you've recently joined the pro-bending circuit"
"Wow, you're good." Korra said.
"I like to keep tabs. Now, if you'll excuse me." He started walking to his car.
"Wait!" Korra said. "Before you jump back into your Batmobile…"
"Is that what they're calling it?" Batman asked.
"Perhaps we can work together." Korra suggested.
"What?" Mako asked. "Korra, maybe you haven't noticed, but he's a vigilante and he almost killed that guy."
"I almost broke his arm." Batman corrected. "I don't kill. And for the record, I'm not looking for a partner, especially you, Avatar."
"Me?" Korra asked. "Hold on. Why wouldn't you want to work with me?"
"Where do I begin?" Batman asked. "You're rash, reckless, and temperamental."
"Who are you calling rash?" Korra asked.
"I can't trust you not to mess this up." Batman said. "It's best if you both turn around and go home."
"I can't." Mako said. "They have my brother, Bolin. He was caught in the crossfire, and now, he's the Equalists' prisoner."
"I'll be sure to save your brother before something happens to him." Batman promised. "But I can't afford to have the two of you involved." He jumped into the Batmobile and rode it into the darkness.
"Batman." Korra said. "Cool guy until you meet him."
"Up until this point, I thought he was a myth." Mako said. "We're not going to just let this go, are we?"
"Of course not." Korra said. "Come on. Let's go to the park. There's someone there who might help."
Driving through the streets of Republic City, Batman turned on his radio and his butler's voice answered.
"We were right, Alfred." Batman replied. "Amon's planning something at this Revelation tomorrow night. And I'm going to see what it is."
Author's Note: At last, Batman and Avatar Korra meet. And Catwoman makes an appearance too. And next time, the Revelation is brought to light. Any and all comments are welcome.
