Humans. Monsters. Heroes. Villains.
It's been 9 years since the Joker was first locked up in Arkham Asylum. Sure, it had its benefits at first - seeing the terrified faces of the workers when they passed his cell, watching people jump when he so much as breathed at them, laughing manically and watching the fear grow in their eyes -
But after a while, it starts to get boring.
And when the Joker gets bored, it's never good.
So he decides it's time for his comeback. Gotham will never see it coming. It will be perfect.
Well, that's how things were supposed to go.
The Joker makes it out, only to find that he's not the only one trying to take down Gotham. There's a new villain in town - one so cold-blooded, sinister, charming and devious that she might just be a match for the Joker himself. And she won't be willing to share Gotham once she's got it in her clutches.
They both have plans, plans to take Gotham for their own. Plans to destroy it, burn it to the ground, and take down anyone who stands in their way - such as the Phoenix, a new hero of Gotham following in the footsteps of the Batman.
But sometimes things don't go according to plan.
NOTE: this book is mainly based off of the movie "The Dark Knight". However, there will be certain elements and backstories from the comics and television series (Batman: the Animated Series) that are also included.
