“Dystopia”! Anarky has shown Spoiler the world he’s built beneath Gotham City, which he plans to bring into the light…but she needs to know who helped him build it! And what’s more, this alliance has put Steph back on Batman’s radar…and now the two are on a collision course!

Summary of Stephness: Anarky shows Steph his secret community beneath Monstertown. She meets old friends, Leslie Thompkins and Harper Row, who want her to join them, but Lonnie pulls her away to give her his own pitch - a romantic kiss. Confused and still grieving Tim, Steph pushes him away, and Batman appears, demanding that Lonnie tell Steph the truth about his project. Lonnie admits that the First Victim helped him setup Utopia. Horrified, Steph rejects Anarky's plan to blackmail Batman into supporting their scheme, even though she tried a version of that at the end of The Victim Syndicate. She and Anarky battle, but when it looks like she's about to lose, Batman knocks the vigilante out. He tries to tell Steph that Tim is still alive, but she storms out of the secret commune first.
