As the battle between Earth First and the Legion of Doom wore on, Commander Jarrod of the League of Shadows desperately waited for information that would lead him to Tempest's kryptonite ring, a ring that he believed could kill Lex Luthor. Finally he received word from a member of Earth First known as 'Shark' in
In an abandoned building in Park Row, in the East End of Gotham, Commander Natasha met Agent Smoke whom had been tracking the location of Shark and his friends. Natasha learned from Agent Smoke that Shark had been followed by some Luthorcorp operatives.
Shark and his gang ran through the streets of
Together, Natasha and Shark discussed the situation in the building's basement while the others prepared for battle.
Shark followed Natasha down a flight of stairs into the basement. Natasha led him to a dark tunnel in the corner. "What is this?!", Shark asked.
"That's the way out", Natasha said casually.
"Oh, no! Hell, no!", Shark said. "That's a freaking sewer!"
"We don't have much time", Natasha persisted. "They're on their way."
"You want me to swim through that! No way!", Shark said.
"Your friend Phaser can't phase you through concrete, Shark, not with Tempest's ring. And Star Sapphire doesn't take prisoners", Natasha said plainly.
"You told me you'd protect us!", Shark said.
"We'll do our best to protect X'r and Phaser, but we don't have much time", Natasha replied.
"Not good enough!", Shark continued. He turned around and stared at the tunnel.
Natasha walked over to him. "You know the situation", she said casually. "We, and Earth First, we're outnumbered. The three of you might be the last ones left."
"So I'm supposed to leave here, on your word, and meet this agent?! What's his name?! Pennyworth?!", Shark asked bitterly.
"Yes", Natasha said hopefully.
"I want to know who he is!", Shark demanded. "Tell me who he is!", he continued.
Natasha paused for a moment, and then told him, "His first name is Alfred. He's my boss."
"Alfred?", Shark thought to himself as he stared out at the tunnel. After a few seconds Shark jumped into the water and took off.
