Fortunately, David got out of that life or war and crime and took revenge against his evil overlord, but I don't want to give you all the details because I want you all to go and buy these issues and discover them for yourselves. Of course, David isn't alone in this war against crime, he has a mentor and a friend who helps him, much like Alfred Pennyworth helps Bruce Wayne, and his name is Matu. Together they've sworn to fight a war that most likely will be the end of them.
One night, after beating a few criminals to a pulp, David warns the criminals saying: "Tell your leader I'm out here". He's surprised when a chilling voice came from the shadows and said: "And you're gaining quite the reputation. I can help you with that." Batman had been watching him for a while, and decided to make him an offer that would change his life forever. Batman gave him a powerful weapon in the form of the Batwing suit, but in reality, David was the greatest weapon of all; and Batman knew it. There's one thing that's worth mentioning is that, Batman respects David as a partner and more importantly, AN EQUAL, something very few people have ever been capable of achieving, even amongst the Justice League; that speaks volumes!
