Ace is Barbara Gordon's very stern pet German Shepherd dog. He was originally a police dog assigned to her father. When Ace retired, he became her pet. He is 26 inches at the shoulder, has a medium coat, finished first in his class at the academy, is extremely intelligent, plainly chiseled, and had a noble head. She also believed he had a super loveable personality and had the cutest little fuzzy black nose. When helping her in the field, he wears a purple mask to hide his identity. In an effort to catch up to an incident involving Mr. Freeze, Batgirl resorted to having Ace tow her as she rode behind him with skates on.

Kara Danvers was walking past Pelham Park when a tennis ball popped out of a hedge. Curious, she picked it up and was tackled by Ace. Barbara Gordon emerged and hugged Ace, her pet dog. She explained he was Commissioner Gordon's retired police dog. Danvers picked Ace up and placed him on the sidewalk. He never moved and remained sitting the whole time. Gordon boasted he was the greatest dog in the entire history of the universe. Danvers disagreed and summoned Krypto from Smallville with a whistle. A man called out for help with his pregnant wife giving birth in their car. He realized Ace already helped and the baby was born. It was his third delivery that month. Krypto dropped the car. Gordon commanded Ace to do parkour. Ace finished bandaging the driver's arm then flawlessly performed parkour. He bounced off an awning, spins up a flag pole, sailed over them, bounced off a bus' roof, came off a sign, and leaped the side of buildings, a roof and leaped to the sidewalk. Krypto urinated on a hydrant but melted it due to the acidic properties of his urine. Water shot out of the hydrant and doused Ace. Danvers ordered Krypto to fix it. He sealed the hydrant off with his heat vision.

Danvers and Gordon got into an argument about whose dog was better and took it to the 41st Annual Metropolis Kennel Dog Show. It began with a difficult obedience trial. Food, toys, and other objects were lined against a path and the dogs had to make it to their human on the other side without touching anything. Ace finished it flawlessly and was in front of Barbara Gordon before she could finish commanding him to come. Ace leaped over hurdles, tapped the touchpad for a tennis ball, and started a pile by Gordon. The commentator found Ace remarkable but was stunned to see Krypto fly over the hurdles and amass an even taller pile of balls. Ace completed an obstacle course. Krypto smashed through it. Ace caught the frisbee thrown by Gordon. Krypto caught his up near the score board at the ceiling. Ace jumped through a ring lit on fire. Krypto blew it out. Ace performed a series of complex mathematical equations. Krypto's tail wiped it off the chalkboard. Ace balanced a stack of dog treats on his snout. Krypto shoved him away and the treats landed in his open mouth.

Ace performed Shakespeare. Krypto stole the skull used. Ace attacked the man in the police training suit. Gordon strutted around with Ace. Krypto dragged Danvers around. The deciding event, the freestyle event, loomed. The dogs were dressed in elaborate costumes. Waffles performed to the Sugar Plum Fairy. Gordon and Danvers argued over a brush. Harley Quinn's hyenas, Ethel and Lucy, ran out to the main arena and threatened Waffles. Gordon and Danvers were still busy arguing with each other. Ace and Krypto understood what had to be done. The commentator thought it was all part of the routine. Krypto dug at the tennis ball pile and hit Ethel and Lucy in the face with the balls. He howled and the piercing sound waves stunned them. Ace threw out exploding gas balls. One hyena charged Krypto. He backed up onto a see saw. Ace jumped down onto the other side of the see saw and launched Krypto. Krypto unleashed his freeze breath and froze part of the arena. The hyena slipped and tackled the other by mistake.

Ace pushed Krypto onto his back and rubbed his belly. His beating leg caused an earthquake. Krypto then ran around Ethel and Lucy and created a vortex. Bows worn by other dogs was sucked in. Ace threw a batarang and cut down the event banner. The hyenas were wrapped up like a present. Krypto picked them up, spun around, and threw them through the arena roof. The commentator admitted he never felt more alive and Waffles was declared Best in Show. They had a play date at Pelham Park and finally admitted they both had great dogs. Ace and Krypto took off after a cat. Danvers and Gordon chased after them. Diana Prince brought Steve the Griffin to Pelham Park to train with Barbara Gordon and Ace. Gordon boasted there was no pet more disciplined than Ace. As she talked, Steve ran circles around Prince. She struggled with controlling the leash. Gordon started with fetch. She threw the ball then told Ace to fetch it. He zipped off, returned the ball in her hand, zipped off, and returned with a napkin.

Gordon wiped the ball and wanted Prince to try. Steve ate the ball. He saw a blue bird in a tree and took off after it. He ended up knocking down all the trees like dominoes. The trees randomly missed Ace as he sat stoically.
