Marinette moves to Gotham when Bunnix warns that Lila will ruin her life if she stays in Paris, giving Hawk Moth the chance manipulate Marinette's emotions and akumatize her. But Marinette won't let that happen. She wins the Wayne Foundation full-ride scholarship for Gotham Academy and moves into an apartment in an area called Crime Alley. It's not going to be easy to hide her powers, and excuse herself during the middle of classes to take care of akuma attacks back in Paris, but she's sure that somehow she'll be able to manage it. Damian "Ice Prince" Wayne doesn't understand the feelings that he is developing for the new French exchange student. She's just another pretty girl...perhaps a very smart girl...but just a girl! Why does his heart beat faster whenever she's around? He should be focusing on keeping Gotham safe, and assisting the Justice League with the recent Metahuman trafficking situation, but instead his thoughts are consumed by Marinette Dupain-Cheng.
