A new body modification trend called splicing, combining human DNA with that of animals, is taking Neo-Gotham’s fashion world by storm. While the DA wishes to have it completely outlawed, as it is causing a rise in aggressive behavior, Dr. Abel Cuvier, the creator of the process, insists that the procedure is safe. However, Batman soon discovers that Cuvier is up to no good, as he is working towards attacking the DA in hopes of silencing him.
