This fantastic pirating adventure is everything an Elseworld
should be, taking the known characters and transplanting them to a
different time, place and genre while preserving the essence of all
they should be.
Bruce is not Batman but "Leatherwing" captain of The Flying
Fox, a "legal" pirate in that the British crown allowed and
encouraged privateers to attack and plunder the ships of enemy
nations. (The enemy nations didn't feel that way. They're
Selina - or rather Felina was a Spanish Contessa
(i.e. an enemy nation) who forsook that life for that of a pirate
queen. Her ship is the The
Leatherwing's enemy, the Laughing Man comes to her with an
alliance. She will pretend to be that which she was born as: a
landed Donessa of Spain, thrown from a ship in sight of The Flying
Fox. Taken onboard, she will learn the location of
Leatherwing's treasure trove and base: Vespertilio Cay.
The plan is quickly abandoned when Felina and Leatherwing fall in
love, but it can't be that simple because a barbaric chieftain has
decided Leatherwing is married to his daughter!
Leatherwing was a Detective Comics Annual (#7) available in Trade
