Dr. Thompkins discovered Alfred had a variation of the Clench. She suspected the bats in the cave had contracted it from Tim, and had passed it on to Alfred. After seven days, Bruce ended the quarantine - no one else was getting sick. A man from social services came to Wayne Manor to speak with Bruce about Jason Todd, but got the door slammed in his face. Superman helped steal an experimental cure from Luthor, which cured Alfred. They dosed the bats, evacuating them from the cave. The original Green Lantern and the Atom helped out while Batman was unable to.
"I..I got your decoder ring when I was a kid. I got it out of a box of Crackerjacks."
