Batman – The Rules of Engagement | Comics

Following his marriage proposal to Catwoman, Batman leaves Gotham City on a quest of renewal and redemption.

When Batman proposed to Catwoman on a rooftop after being inspired to be happy in life by his father from an alternate timeline, they decided to come clean to each other about their past. She explains how she ended up at Arkham Asylum for accusation of murdering 237 men of a terrorist group. It was her close friend Holly Robinson who actually committed the crime and Selina took the fall for her knowing she will eventually be saved by The Dark Knight when she will be sent to a death row for this mass murder.

So, they decided to travel to Khadym for a fifteen hour long journey though an unforgiving desert seeking redemption. They loses one of their horses and Batman comes to a former partner of Dick Grayson from his time as an agent of Spyral who goes by the name Tiger King of Kandahar for his help to reach his destination. Since political interference and involvement of super-heroes are not welcomed there, he had to find a guy with enough intel to make an entrance to Khadym and Tiger reluctantly agrees to help them.

Back in Wayne Manor, Alfred Pennyworth finally discloses regarding this illegal mission of his and about Bruce recently proposing to Ms. Kyle to his surrogate family of young vigilantes, which struck them all in awe. While Duke Thomas and Jason Todd starts blaming each other for not being able to stop him from marrying her, Damian Wayne accepts this to be his fault and Dick Grayson tries to comfort him. Superman makes a call to Alfred informing of an unauthorized invasion in Khadym and Justice League is on their way.

Upon arriving at their desired end, Tiger is stopped by the Guard in the Desert, who turns away heroes and villains from entering. He refuses to allow entry for Batman and Catwoman decides to confront the Guard, which didn't end quite well for him. As the three of them enters, Talia al Ghul is informed of their arrival, to which she asks to prepare her swords. They are surrounded by her men whom are ordered to tire them to exhaustion, something that the duo realized fighting the Silent Soldiers of the Pit for a while.

The Demon's daughter then comes swinging her swords at her ex as he tries to reason with her about their visit. All they want is to talk to Holly Robinson and then leave but knowing Selina Kyle is going to be his wife soon, Talia stabs him in jealousy. Catwoman then picks up a sword to fight the former lover of her betrothed to a standstill unless one of them falls. When their ledger on Khadym is finally closed and done about, the Bat and Cat are about to go on a rare double date with Clark Kent and Lois Lane.
