Red Robin

Passing Bullets

by Bejammin2000

Why did the Batman occasionally carry a gun in his first year, despite swearing never to use one? This story suggests an answer to that question, as Tommy Monaghan — the now-retired underworld assassin called the Hitman — tells Red Robin about his own encounter with the Batman back in 1939. He also warns that an old mobster injured by Batman back then is seeking revenge on his protégé, Red Robin. But how will Red Robin outdraw a criminal with the reputation of being the world’s fastest gun?
