A group of guys start robbing banks around Gotham. One of the members that is very showy makes a red hood for himself. In the first robbery he jumps on the counter and is shot at 6 times but was not hit. He believes that the hood is protecting him. To get away, he throws money in the air to get a mob started. Later, he tells the others that the person with the hood should be the leader so one of them shoots him and takes that hood for himself. The police track down the Red Hood finding the dead guy. An eye witness saw the new Red Hood as they were getting in their van. He is identified and followed. This guy is too shot by one of the other robber for not giving up the hood so he could impress his girlfriend who is about to leave him. Gordon and Bullock hear the shot, call an ambulance, and find out the robberies were revenge for him not getting loans to open a bakery. One of the banks was not hit yet so they wait for the others to arrive and all of them were shot in a standoff. Left on the ground, the Red Hood was picked up by someone else that shoots a finger gun at the busy police. I guess it will continue on.
