Mr. Whisper is back again, and this time hes coming for Ottavio. Ottavio cleverly uses an inverted Bat-signal to summon Batman. Batman was not pleased when he showed up to a roof full of gangsters whom he believes ruin the city of Gotham. Ottavio attempts to make a deal with Batman in exchange for his help, after informing him how dangerous Mr. Whisper, the man with no shadow, is. Later that night, Bruce suffers a nightmare about the school children Mr. Whisper killed twenty years ago asking him for help. Bruce remembered how much he hated his school days and the headmaster Mr. Winchester who resigned after being involved in a scandal. After connecting the dots, Batman realized who he was dealing with and that he must help immediately. Batman arrives on the scene just as Mr. Whisper is about to finish off Ottavio and his crew, but it was too late. Winchester already got to them and they didnt see it coming.


Haunting Past Bruces past comes to haunt him in more ways than one.His enemy seeks him out to help take down Mr. Whisper a.k.a. Winchester. Bruce finds out what really got Winchester suspended all those years ago, and now has to stop him from killing the scum of Gotham City.
