After seeing his parents gunned down in Crime Alley, Bruce Wayne dons a cape and cowl to bring justice to Gotham City. Foes, such as the Joker, arise to test his mettle, while a young Dick Grayson joins the fight as Robin the Boy Wonder.
THE BATMAN FAMILY
THE DEATH AND REPLACEMENT OF ROBIN: The Dark Knight forms an alliance with the daughter of the demon, Talia al Ghul, and gains new allies – Batgirl and a new Robin, Jason Todd. The Joker reemerges more lethal than ever and Batman faces his darkest hour.
BROKEN BAT, BROKEN CITY
KNIGHTFALL TO NO MAN'S LAND: Exhausted by a wave of villainous attacks, the Dark Knight is incapacitated by the ruthless Bane, and a new vicious Batman briefly takes on the mantle. Gotham City is turned to ruin and isolated following a massive earthquake.
BATMAN AND SON
THE BAT GOES GLOBAL: Batman discovers he is the father of Damian, a child trained to be a assassin. When Bruce Wayne is lost in time, Dick Grayson becomes the Dark Knight before a renewed original Batman returns and launches an international network.
SECRETS ET REVELATIONS
