As a boy, Bruce Wayne watched in horror as his millionaire parents were slain in front of his eyes. This trauma led him to become obsessed with revenge.

The discovery of a cave under his mansion, and a prototype armoured suit leads him to take on a new persona. He becomes Batman and strikes fear into the hearts of men who do wrong. With the help of rising cop Jim Gordon, Batman sets out to take down the various criminal schemes that have been set in motion by individuals such as mafia don Falcone, the twisted doctor/drug dealer Jonathan 'The Scarecrow' Crane, and a mysterious third party that is quite familiar with Wayne and waiting to strike when the time is right

"Viewed from above, Gotham City by night resembles nothing so much as a ribbon of diamonds on a pad of deep, rich, black velvet. But in the heart of Gotham's darkness glow the cold garish neon of the sex industry, the feverish eyes of desperate drug addicts, the streetlights creating shadows in which muggers patiently wait. This is where Batman's most personal--and most savage--battle begins. But the fire-zone will shift to thousands of miles and many continents away. In this battle, Batman will be driven into a vortex of violence so profound that those who survive lose their souls. Now the night-rider must reach deep within himself to summon the superhuman strength he needs to fight the most vicious and remorseless enemies he has ever faced ... those who traffic in the flesh of children."--Back cover
