Silly me, after last issue I thought "Well, Elena could maybe survive the drug overdose?" But, NOPE... She dead. Given the personal nature of the Icarus case, Detective Bullock doesn't take its reemergence leading to a death on Bruce Wayne's doorstep lightly, instantly believing Wayne to have killed her with some recreational party drug use gone wrong. But of course, Bruce didn't do it, and in a Batman power move, pisses in a cup for Bullock then goes to investigate for himself, finding tire tracks and signs of a struggle. Elena was murdered! DUN DUN DUN.
While Bullock's leads on Icarus eventually go dry the next day, with some deaths in the holding cells, Bruce puts on an EMP mask, goes looking for the source of Icarus, and ends up taking a shotgun blast to the chest, but not before placing at tracker on the car of his assailant, and potential icarus source.
At Elena's funeral, Bullock approaches Bruce to give him more shit about rich kids not caring about their family as Elena's daughter didn't even attend the funeral. Bruce doesn't play around with Bullock, asking about his investigation, knowing full well that his drug test came back clean, then telling Bullock to actually follow real evidence instead. OOOOOH! Batman burn!
What about Elena's daughter Annie? Well, she's on the street looking to score drugs, and while she buys some "white candy," it seems that she isn't interested in the drugs, as much as she's interested in finding where the icarus came from. Also, side note, seems like all records of Annie have been wiped clean for some reason... She'd make a good Rob--NOOOOO! DAMIAN!!!
That night, the tracker Bruce placed leads him to a ship docked in the bay. Lots of shipping containers, with lots of human trafficking. No good, but you know what else is no good? Some dude named Sumo, looking to kill Batman... blah blah blah, they fight, Sumo breaks his back, coughs up he was just doing a job for The Squid, had nothing to do with Elena.
Remember that dude Holter? The biker? Well, he's got a guy at the docks who hears Sumo squealing, and reports back. Holter knows that there are going to be some loose ends to tie up, but first he and his companion need to transfer the source of Icarus, which seems to be some dude who is perpetually on fire or something... pleasant.
