While Shredder enters an uneasy alliance with a deadly new partner, Casey Jones is arrested by the GCPD. At the same time, a crisis breaks out at Arkham Asylum, which is bound to keep both Batman and the Turtles busy. Meanwhile, a certain young resident of Wayne Manor returns home to find a new, green occupant in his room.
On a rooftop near the Bat Signal, Batman learns from Jim Gordon - while Raphael and Leonardo listen - that Arkham is now "the grand fortress of the Foot Clan," and is full of armed guards and weapons. Penguin appears and declares that Shredder has taken everything from him, and that he's going too far. He also tips them off that Ra's al Ghul is now involved.
Batman and the two Turtles head off back to the Batcave, but just as Leonardo is asking about Ra's al Ghul, the Turtle suddenly becomes woozy and collapses in pain. Batman declares that the mutagen is starting to wear off.
Back in the Batcave, Donatello and Michelangelo are playing video games while Casey looks around the place. They are interrupted by the arrival of the current Robin, Damian Wayne, who immediately attacks them viciously. Fortunately, Batman arrives with the still-semiconscious Leonardo, and tells his son to stand down. Casey states that Leonardo's body is going into shock, and that in about twenty-four hours his mind will shut down. None of the mutants have much time left. Fortunately, he has a slingshot portal device that can get them home again.
Leonardo weakly insists that they need to bring Shredder back, because he is killing people. Batman responds that he and Robin have faced worse before. But Robin says that the League of Assassins is converging on Gotham, meaning that they have to get to Arkham immediately. The Turtles say their goodbyes to Batman (and Michelangelo hugs him) before Batman and Robin head out of the cave in a small plane.
They arrive at Arkham, but are confronted by the Penguin... who is now a literal penguin, thanks to Shredder's mutagen. As Batman turns around, he finds himself facing his entire rogues' gallery, now transformed into mutants of various types.
