Batman’s solo comics recently put Bruce in a completely different variant of Gotham City after a battle with Failsafe the robot villain. The story of Batman#133 (by Chip Zdarsky, Mike Hawthrone, Adriano Di Benedetto, Tomeu Morey and Clayton Cowles), Bruce met an alternate version of the Riddler who is dressed in an orange suit and tattooed a question mark to his face. He also fought Two-Face, a Venom-addicted Harvey Dent and ended up in caves beneath the city, which Selina Kyle/Catwoman refers to as “Arkham.” Tim Drake/Robin witnessed Bruce’s sudden disappearance when they were battling Failsafe together, and has since taken it upon himself to find and rescue Bruce from the Dark Knight.
