While nearly all of the again half of DC vs. Vampires has targeted on the resistance in opposition to Nightwing, All-Out War has centered round a secondary group of exhausted and traumatized survivors who’ve been struggling to counter Nightwing’s plans. To that finish, the small group has made their option to Florida, hoping to focus on the mysterious Baron Cinder and his blood farms. After splitting into groups, the group discovered themselves approached by an unlikely ally — Kate Kane, aka Batwoman.
She is revealed to have been contaminated by the vampire curse, however has carried out her finest to withstand the corrupting affect. It seems that, just like Damian Wayne, Batwoman has retained sufficient fury at Dick Grayson to withstand his nominal place as their chief. In truth, she’s even been working along with her nephew instantly. With Batwoman’s assist, the workforce is ready to efficiently sneak into Baron Cinder’s base of operations. Although Bane is bitten by a vampire (and given a mercy killing to forestall his corruption courtesy of Deadman), the workforce is finally profitable in finding Starfire.

Deathstroke is ready to find Starfire and assist liberate her, with the problem ending as Starfire and Batwoman fly off to reconvene with another person.
Starfire and Batwoman each being alive presents the resistance in opposition to Nightwing a greater likelihood than ever of success. Starfire has been some of the essential heroes on this actuality, as Nightwing was implied to have used her Tamaraneans biology to assist overcome the vampiric weak point to daylight. Her destiny was left ambiguous, however given the devious nature of this Nightwing variant, it wasn’t arduous to think about a grim destiny had befallen the alien princess. But Starfire’s spectacular skills would possibly permit her to be an important wildcard within the battle in opposition to Nightwing.
Currently venturing into Gotham City are 4 freedom fighters and two of them haven’t any superpowers. Starfire’s presence may very well be a serious boon to the heroes on this scenario. On prime of that, Batwoman’s continued survival may very well be an important edge for the heroes as effectively. The 4 heroes in Gotham will likely be tasked with a nigh-impossible mission, bringing down the supernaturally enhanced former superhero on the prime of the vampire kingdom.
But Batwoman’s expertise with Gotham, and notably in exploring stealthily, may give her perception into the perfect methods the group ought to method the remainder of their mission. With Batwoman’s assist, the workforce have a real shot at Nightwing, giving Starfire the prospect to take revenge on the lover who turned in opposition to her (whereas serving to Nightwing’s different misplaced love, Batgirl, acquire some essential closure).
