"NIGHTWING!" Robin yelled and was about to rush and attack Joker, but Nightwing shook his head and Robin stayed put.
"Well, who's this? Robin? You were supposed to be waiting downstairs for me with Batsy!" Joker taunted Robin. Robin chuckled slightly in his head because the Joker hadn't realized he was a different Robin. But then he got serious, because Batman and Tim were still trapped and Nightwing was injured. Joker had stabbed him in his left shoulder, dangerously close to his heart. It was clear that Nightwing needed help, otherwise he would bleed out.
"Batman? Please come in! Nightwing needs help! Batman?" Robin tried to call Batman, but there must have been a frequency jammer somewhere in the building or Batman was not able to answer, because all Robin was getting from his comm was static. And Batman had given him a new one, so it should've worked.
"Robin? Come out to play! Or Wings here will be in a spot of trouble!" Joker called out in a sing song voice, but Robin wasn't going to. He had to find Batman and he was hoping that Joker had a camera wherever Batman and Tim were being held. Unlike any of the other members of the Batclan, Robin had a computer.
"Bat...wing...help...man?" Batman faintly heard something through his comm unit and tried to respond.
"Robin? What's going on? Robin? Nightwing?" Tim gave Batman a worried look when he heard this from Batman. "No one's answering and Flash doesn't have a comm. I don't know what's going on.
"Then we need to get out of here! We can't leave them on their own!" Tim pleaded with Batman. Batman was just as worried as Tim, but he didn't show it. Instead, he strode over to a wall and started tapping it with his ear against the wall. "What are you doing?"
"I'm trying to get us out." Batman replied simply. Tim stayed quiet while Batman did his thing.
"Batman, there's a camera in here." Tim spoke up. Batman started to growl at him, but then thought of something. Dick, the younger one, had a computer in his glove. If the Batman in his world was anything like him, then Dick would have been trained to use the computer to hack into anything, hopefully including cameras.
"Robin has a computer." Batman said quietly, not wanting to be heard by any hidden microphones.
"He has a what?"
"A computer. No, you can't have one. But, he will probably use it to hack into any security cameras." Robin did a fist pump at this news.
"Wait, why can't I have one?"
Robin couldn't wait anymore. While his computer was hacking the security cameras, he leapt out of the rafters and attacked the Joker, starting with a foot to his face. Robin followed with a fist in Joker's gut and avoided the bloody crowbar Joker was swinging. He flipped backwards and slide to a stop to get a good look at this world's Joker. He looked scarier than the one on his world.
"New costume, Bird Boy? I think I liked the old one better. But I am very happy you came out to play. I was getting bored with all these old guys." Joker was trying to get Robin to attack. That might've worked with Tim, but it had almost the opposite effect on him. Robin laughed. "You sound different, kiddo! Are you really my Boy Blunder? Because you fight differently, too. I'm not so sure you are the Batman's sidekick."
This got Robin started. He launched himself at Joker and flipped over him, using Joker as a support and making use of several pressure points. Joker grabbed Robin's arm and swung him around to hit a concrete post. Robin fell to the floor, unconscious.
"This is going to be fun."
"No! Leave him alone!" You already have me, Batman, and Flash. You don't need him!" Nightwing called, trying to get up from where Joker had dropped him. He looked like a ghost. He had already lost too much blood and was definitely going to need more.
"Now, why would I do that? This kid is going to give me the means to torture Batman!" Joker cackled and Nightwing paled even more, if that were possible. Joker was going to find that he had two Robins and he was going to hurt one, probably both of them. Robin heard what Joker had said and decided that enough was enough. With Joker distracted, Robin got up and silently left. He had to find Batman and Tim, no matter what happened. Nightwing noticed it, but didn't say anything. Wally, however, was not as good at hiding his emotions and gasped. "What? What happened?"
"Nothing. He's just in a lot of pain. You did kind of hurt him." Nightwing tried to cover for Flash, but Joker wasn't buying it. He looked around and saw that where Robin was supposed to be unconscious, there was an empty space.
"Where is he?"
