It looked like a monster robot, dinosaur. It was made of shiny white metal or glossy plastic of some sort. Blue lights were scattered across it, including where the eye are, or would be. It carried a large staff that Jason guessed was some kind of weapon. And then it spoke.
“Halt! What are you doing in this area? What is your authorization?”
Jason kept his cool, but he knew he was out of his league with this thing. “Ummm...I was looking for the bathroom. And got lost?” At least that was the truth.
The giant mech was silent for a moment or two, then a strange sound emanated from it. Jaon put his hands on the Battarangs he'd acquired in readiness, then realized the sound was laughter. It was distorted sounding with a hollow metal sound accented by digital aliasing.
“Hah, hah, hah. You may not remember me like this, but I know who you are Robin and.... AAAGGHH!”
Jason didn't wait for the mech to finish talking. He threw the flash Battarangs he had as he yelled, “No time to talk, gotta go!” And leaped over the railing. He heard gunfire or something behind him as he hit the floor. He threw two smoke battarangs, then ran under the platform and headed to the other side. A large metal thump came from behind him that he could feel through the floor. He launched his grappler which made contact with a scaffold high and near the ceiling. He threw another battarang each of smoke and flash behind him and let the grappler “fly” him to the ceiling. He moved into shadow and tried to see if the enemy was aware he was gone.
He'd left a lot of smoke behind and could hear the mech clomping about. But it looked like it was blowing the smoke away. He took the opportunity to examine his map again. From where he was there was a narrow conduit in the wall near the ceiling. That would take him to just below level 2, but not where the restroom was. He didn't have much choice now. With a jump, a leap and a swing, he was in the conduit. He listened for the mech below. The clomping had stopped and he could hear it talking in that strange digitized voice, but could not make out the words. So he moved ahead.
He felt he was in the right place and took a minute to access his plans again. This turned out to be better than he expected. He found a ladder that led right up to the floor of the room. The problem was, that he didn't know what was on the other side. He listened hard then used a stethoscopic mic to listen to what was beyond. All he heard was a hum. He undid the hatch from his side and slowly opened the door upward. Just a crack at first.

Freakin' incredible! Looks like Robin has his hands full, but he's proving more than a match for the bad guys! Awesome work all the way around, Art!

Thrilling and exciting storytelling. Both in word and image.

Go Robin!! Though I suspect the mech is in need of upgrades if its optics are defeated by flash and smoke! No glare compensators for the flash or spectrum shifting to see through smoke? Must've been a cheap build :) Great lighting on the image!
