In their youth, Bruce Wayne and Jean-Paul Valley trained together under the Order of St. Dumas at their church. Eventually, Wayne left to continue his training elsewhere. Valley was chosen by the priests to be their champion and gave him the name "Azrael." Decades later, Catwoman infiltrated the Church and stole the Shawl of Magdalene. Azrael was tasked with recovering it and exacting punishment for the crime. After the Shawl was recovered, Bruce Wayne and Jean-Paul went to the Church of St. Dumas. Wayne lit a candle to honor the late Nora Fries and pray for Mr. Freeze's recovery. Jean-Paul was surprised by his compassion and mused one might almost call it saintly. Wayne retorted he wouldn't. Jean-Paul placed the Shawl back into its case and stated he owed his life to Wayne and the Shawl. Wayne speculated his resilience played a larger part in his survival but implored him to believe it if it was a comfort. Jean-Paul promised he would not be so impulsive next time. Wayne inquired what he meant. Jean-Paul clarified he would answer his call if he ever needed his help. Wayne told him he would let him know and thanked him.
