Bane, promising to change, left Dr. Thompkins' clinic in search of his father - Sir Edmund Dorrance. Much later, Alfred realized his signal had gone offline and informed Batman. Batman called in Leslie, Alfred, Dick, and Tim to talk about the situation. Realizing his last signal came from a key line, Bruce thought Ra's al Ghul and the League of Assassins may be involved. Since he parted ways with Batman, Bane has captured a number of criminals and persuaded Pix to remain on the straight and narrow. Now he is at the site of a Lazarus pit and Kobra stronghold which Robin discovered some time ago, and it is here that he encounters his father.
