"My name is Bruce Wayne, and I'm the new kid (UGH) at Ducard Academy. I can't say for certain, but I think something fishy's going on. There's a gang of clowns roaming the halls, a kid named Bane wants to beat me up, and the guidance counselor, Hugo Strange, seems really, well, strange. At least I have two new friends -- Clark and Diana are kinda cool, I guess. We're going to solve this case no matter what, even if I have to convince Alfred to let me stay up past eleven." -- back cover.
