Fear of Faith has its final chapter in Detective 731 (April 1999), part of No Man’s Land, by Devin Grayson, with art by Dale Eaglesham and Sean Parsons.
The story centres on a hospice run by Father Chris, who tries to be accepting of everyone – even if this includes the Scarerow, a former member of Black Mask’s gang, and the Huntress. The Scarecrow has manipulated people’s fears, creating a stand-off between Father Chris, the Black Mask gang, the Penguin, who wants to move in to the territory, and the cops.
It’s a great story to show the malevolent manipulations of the Scarecrow, and also puts the Huntress into an interesting light, as she has to try to keep people calm and rational.
Batman observes as the various forces converge, and tensions rise.
The Huntress restrains herself, and even brings a degree of peace and understanding. The Scarecrow’s schemes are exposed, and he exiles himself when Father Chris and his followers offer him forgiveness and acceptance again.
The story concludes with a scene between Batman and the mysterious new Batgirl, as he takes her to one of his many new “caves,” this one in Arkham Asylum.
I am going to spoil the mystery here. The new Batgirl is Huntress. When I first read this issue, I took the scene at the end as an indication that Batgirl and Huntress were two different people. But reading it, knowing they are the same, it makes a lot of sense. Batman is rewarding her for her stability and maturity during this storyline.
