PlotEdit

Daredevil and Batman must work together to defeat Two Face, who partners with Marvel villain Mr. Hyde. Batman pursues the two villains to New York, where Daredevil is investigating a series of thefts of computer equipment, which leads him to the same criminal pair. Batman and Daredevil initially clash, even coming to blows, before ultimately resolving to work together.

Two-Face and Mr. Hyde have stolen a computer chip which acts as powerfully as a human brain. However, the chip needs to be housed in organic brain tissue. Two-Face’s plan, therefore, is to trick Mr. Hyde into consuming large quantities of a specific drug, which will both speed up the formation of the chip and eventually kill Hyde, allowing Two-Face to harvest the chip from Hyde's brain.

It is also revealed that Harvey Dent was once friends with Matt Murdock: prior to his disfigurement, Dent believed in giving criminals a chance at rehabilitation, while Murdock believed in final justice. Having since come around to Dent's philosophy, Murdock, as Daredevil, manages to talk Two-Face out of killing Hyde when the four protagonists face off.

Two-Face agrees to help Daredevil and Batman cure Mr. Hyde of the drugs in his system, before disappearing again, and later claiming that this act of goodness was "the last of Harvey Dent". The story concludes with the two heroes out of costume, as Bruce Wayne warns Matt Murdock not to return to Gotham - something which Murdock interprets as a "dare".
