Batman Vol.1 #547
The events of Genesis have already taken hold of Gotham City; as hopelesness and despair take over almost every person in the city, the police do what they can with the few people that showed up to work.
Commissioner Gordon is tempted to start the Bat-Signal, but knows that it would be futile. Elsewhere, Batman tells a depressed Oracle not to give up and to have faith, convincing her to help the world in any way she could. Alfred was worried about Batman, who told him not to worry and to keep the spirit up as he left the Batcave to patrol the city. As soon as Batman left, the phone rang at Wayne Manor, and Alfred answered Vesper Fairchild's call, the two of them comforting each other.
