The Falcone family are one of the most influential crime families of Gotham City and Carmine "The Roman" Falcone was desperately seeking a means to dry-clean the dirty cash of his family business.

But Bruce refuses to co-operate with the mob and got warned by them for his denial. Before getting into his regular crime patrol, Bruce met Selina Kyle at the party and they dance together which Falcone's sister Carla Viti watches attentively. A serial killer appears on Gotham City killing people on holidays, quickly dubbed as the Holiday Killer.

Batman, along with Police Captain Jim Gordon and the enthusiastic new District Attorney Harvey Dent takes it upon themselves to end Falcone's rule over Gotham City and Catwoman unexpectedly offers Batman her helping hand in doing so. At night, they secretly invade Roman's penthouse but is forced to flee upon the arrival of guards.

While trying to solve the mystery of who the actual killer is, Batman steps in the middle of an ensuing gang-war between Gotham's two most powerful crime families. Psychotic villains like The Joker, Scarecrow, Poison Ivy and The Riddler appears in the scene with their own chaotic schemes to terrorize Gotham. District Attorney Harvey Dent; a former ally in crime fighting, tragically reforms to a villain named Two-Face after his face got disfigured by a horrific accident that dissolved part of his face.
