Ra’s is in Gotham, attacking a thief who currently possesses an antique globe he once owned, which marks the locations of all the Lazarus Pits.  Ra’s is more aggressive than usual, and stays in Gotham, repeatedly attacking Batman.

Batman suspects this is due t Ra’s consuming the body of the White Ghost, who was insecure and always trying to prove himself.  Ra’s seems to now have these same weaknesses.

But even with them, Ra’s Al Ghul is still not an enemy he wants free, so Batman takes some extreme measures.  First he pushes him out the window of a skyscraper.

Then he has him drugged and shipped to Arkham, with falsified records and a new identity, and a medical schedule that will keep him permanently doped up.

Batman is not sure how long it will work, and knows that Ra’s will get out somehow.  And indeed, it doesn’t take very long.
