Synopsis:
Ma Gunn, the proprietor of the school, set her boys against Jason. After seeing that the school is actually about the old lady teaching her students to be hoods, Jason snuck out. Batman/Bruce did some checking up on the Todd family. Batman returned to Crime Alley the next night to find Jason was back stealing tires. He told Batman why he'd dropped out of the school. For proof, he told Batman of the heist they were planning. Batman stopped Ma Gunn and her kids, with a little help from Jason. He offered Jason a ride and offered him the Robin job.
