In this five-issue mini-series, Tim follows a similar path that Bruce Wayne took in becoming Batman. Similar, but not identical. Tim journeys to Paris on his own to learn "an obscure Tibetan Martial Art from its last living master", the Rahul Lama. On his arrival, he meets the Lama's grandson Shen Chi. Over the course of the mini-series he encounters Lady Shiva and King Snake. Tim's first mini-series is written by familiar Batman-scribe Chuck Dixon; pencilled by Tom Lyle.
