Synopsis for "Heart"Edit
Mahreen Zaheer attempts in vain to try to ground the Arkham Asylum patients who kidnapped her in reality as they drag her through the sewers. One of them, Cassidy, believes that they are headed for the heart of the city. Believing he sees a sign from the Joker, Cassidy tells of how he was sent on a secret mission in the military. All of the others on the mission were from Gotham as well, and he sensed that the mission was some kind of test. When he discovered a Batarang in the desert they'd been driven to, he realized that they were training to become Batman. When they returned to the base, he snuck into the computers and broke into a locked file that confirmed it to him. When he was found out, he was ejected from the military.
He then began digging, and found old, heavily redacted documents from the Zero Year, about Batman and soldiers who were sent to the city. About how the military was involved in the reconstruction of Gotham - in bed with Wayne Enterprises who had been a military supplier until the Zero Year. He knew, though, that the real secret was that the military was building a secret base in the heart of the city, housing an army of Batmen.
In his obsession, he dressed himself as a bat to show the government what he could have been, and when they laughed at him, he beat a man to death. When he was placed in Arkham, the Joker appeared to him and claimed that he was the first of the Batmen until he saw the joke and changed what he'd been. When he heard that Cassidy had found his last batarang, he knew he'd found someone who could handle the truth. The joke is that nobody wants to hear the truth - that there is a heart down in the middle of the city. And that is where he wanted Cassidy to go.
Despite Mahreen's protests, they drag her through a door with graffiti of a heart over it, and promise to show her the truth.
