The adventures of the young hero known as Batwing are collected in a single hardcover volume for the first time in stories set in both the Congo and Gotham City. Originally introduced in the series Batman, Incorporated, written by Grant Morrison, the first Batwing was Congo native David Zavimbe. In these adventures, Batwing first battles for justice in Africa with the help of the super-team known as the Kingdom — a team bankrolled by none other than Bruce Wayne. But when some of the team are murdered, Batman himself arrives to help Batwing stop the killer, the villain known as Massacre. The adventure then moves to Gotham City when David retires as Batwing, and the Dark Knight himself gives a new version of the Batwing costume to Luke Fox, young son of Wayne Enterprises' executive Lucius Fox — and this young hero quickly gets swept up into the Bat-family's struggle against the Court of Owls.
