The Bat-family is struggling to stay united as Nightwing and Batgirl want different things for Gotham than what Batman wants. Seeing that he is getting into Batman’s head, Jack prepares himself for his final act against the Dark Knight but is his body working against him already or is it nothing to worry about? Gotham City is done with Batman!
What you need to know:
The City of Gotham is moving into a new era where the GCPD and the Vigilantes can work side by side to keep their city safe… enter the GTO. Jack Napier has been elected by the City of Gotham as the new Councilman and is ready to take Gotham to new heights. But not everyone in Gotham sees Jack as this so called White Knight.
What you’ll find out:
Batman’s obsession with Jack takes a toll with the Bat-family and Gotham. Now Batman no longer is a wanted hero, Nightwing and Batgirl try to bring Batman to the GTO where things get a little heated in the conversation. Neo Joker makes her move in the Wayne Manor to finally find her final act to get her beloved Joker back from inside Jack.
What just happened?
Batman continues his investigation to find out what Jack is really doing and what game he is trying to play. Finding mud in one of his investigations, he realizes that something is wrong with every villain in Gotham, as if they were being brainwashed; but one villain is missing and that is Clayface. As Neo Joker steals information from the Wayne Manor the GTO begins to chase her down, but she is not alone… every villain in Gotham is at her disposal. Welcome to the Wasteland! (Mad Max) With the GTO after Neo Joker, Batman gets in the way for his final time and this time the GCPD is after Batman.
Jack has beaten Batman in every move and it is insane how Batman is hating every moment that passes. Seeing how Jack is preparing himself for his final encounter with Batman is something that everyone will want to see. As everyone’s eyes are on Batman, Neo Joker is being a thorn on everyone’s side from Jack to Batman to Gotham. With Mad Hatter’s help they look to finally take over Gotham City and bring back The Joker. Sad thing about this whole thing is that Batman is so blinded by his anger that he doesn’t care if people get hurt in the way of finding how to stop Jack and Neo Joker. Now all of the GCPD and the GTO are out for Batman.
