Mad Hatter is with Mr. Freeze, attempting to resurrect the frozen Talons (which Freeze has a problem with) while the rest of Gotham remains in a large battle, and Killer Croc, who rescued Scarecrow and Man-Bat, returns Crane to the surface. To repay Croc, Crane promises Croc and his followers Wayne Tower, telling him its time they emerged from the sewers and took their rightful place.
Elsewhere in Gotham, Blackgate and Arkham continue to war, until Bane shows up, breaking up a fight and abducting Ogilvy to continue his deal with Penguin. Bane returns Oglivy to the Penguin, and in return gets info on where his Talons are, and some other information, mainly that while he's powerful, the Arkham inmates don't fear Bane, not like they feared him...
So what does Bane do? Time to go to his workshop and make himself a new costume.
So what is Bane's first plan as Batman? Well, know the old thought of going to prison, and beating up the strongest dude there? That's what Bane does, as he finds Croc on a top floor of Wayne tower. The two go at it for a bit, and Bane eventually wins, throwing Croc off the tower. With his first night as Batman complete, Bane tells his men to rest, for the next night they will "slice the throats of Gotham's freaks and take the Talons"
