Bruce tells Duke the history between Harvey and himself. They were both trouble teens and sent to an update Arkham house of trouble children. Now they are headed towards the house for the cure however they get ambushed and Two-Face pours acid on Batman's face.

Batman, Duke, and Harvey escape however are faced with a mob of people wanting the fortune Two-Face promised them. A cure for Two-Face is offered and Batman gives it to him. The five issue series costing $25 bucks is not a worthwhile as we get a predictable ending with no consequences.
