Arkham Asylum is a mental institute for the lodging of criminally insane and Gotham's worst kind of villains. Recently, Batman's arch nemesis, The Joker has spread chaos in the inner circles of Arkham but Batman however, was able to finally put an end to the riot in time that left it all in ruins. The clown prince of crime formerly injected himself with the Venom like serum that super-powered criminal Bane uses to amplify his physical strength, called the Titan formula which had a bizarre effect on him, making him am enormous monster. Batman eventually defeated him in his gigantic form after quite a hard battle and The Joker is left in a dying, sickly state on Arkham.

In the heat of the situation, the administrator of Arkham Asylum, Quincy Sharp takes advantage of the situation and becomes the mayor of Gotham City to control the power that runs the city. Meanwhile, two super powered thug siblings named "T&T" who were working as henchmen for Two-Face, secretly succumbed to the Titan formula and starts a murderous spree across town, which prompts a martial law in Gotham by Mayor Sharp. Batman is well aware of Sharp's intention and realizes that someone from the behind is orchestrating the entire plot to manipulate the entire series of events. Meanwhile, Joker's girlfriend Harley Quinn decides to perform a rescue mission to set his lunatic lover free to spread limitless chaos together.

Batman – Hush | Comics

Batman goes up against a mysterious foe who send him up against Catwoman, Joker, Killer Croc, Poison Ivy and even Superman!

To save a kidnapped boy from the clutches of Killer Croc after tracking him down Batman goes and have a brief fight with his captor but before S.W.A.T. team arrives, the ransom money is surprisingly stolen by Catwoman, who remained unnoticed to everyone else. The Dark Knight however, sees her trail and starts to give a chase over the rooftops.

In mid air, someone cut his Bat-Line from the shadows and caused him to fall on ground from a great height. He receives a severe damage to skull and couldn't move at all while landing on the vile streets of Crime Alley. When he was falling to his uncertain fate, she was completely unaware of it and ran off with the money to hand it over to Poison Ivy.

Unable to even move a muscle, Batman is surrounded by street thugs and Oracle sends out a distress signal to fellow vigilantes for his rescue. Fortunately Huntress was nearly and she responds to the emergency signal by arriving to rescue The Bat as soon as she could. She fought her hardest to a standstill until transportation was sent to their location.

She puts his body inside the Batmobile and it takes off before she leaves too in her motorcycle, as someone watches over and makes remark about the importance of friends in life. In Batcave, Alfred Pennyworth patches him up and a near-unconscious Bruce tells him thorough Morse code to call his childhood friend Thomas Elliot.

Tommy Elliot is a renowned neurosurgeon of the world and a close personal friend of Bruce Wayne, who performs a brain surgery on him to save his life. When slightly recovered, he starts investigating about the fall and confronted Killer Croc again in Arkham Asylum. Croc didn't respond very well and was seemingly more agitated than his usual self.

He then unexpectedly proceeds to break out of his cell to make an escape upon tossing out everyone on his way. Batman immediately goes after him but the tire of Batmobile was shot during this chase, which threw him off the track for a brief time. Croc has gotten his hands onto Catwoman and he was about to off her for stealing his money.

She was saved at the last moment by the Caped Crusader and Selina reveals that she stole the money for Ivy in a mind-controlled state. These two head over to Metropolis for further investigation only to encounter Poison Ivy with a mind-controlled Superman at her side. It took almost everything for The Dark Knight just to restrain Man of Steel.

The duo gets back to Gotham City to gather at an Opera as Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle without knowing each other's secret identity, along with Tommy Elliot and Leslie Thompkins. The stage is taken by Harley Quinn and her masked henchmen, so Batman had to intervene but she goes all out guns blazing and Catwoman ended up getting shot.

Changing back to his cowl, Batman chases after Harley hears a gunshot outside, which led him to The Joker looming over the lifeless body of his pal Tommy Elliot. In a violent fit of rage, he viciously beats the clown down with an inch of his life and both Selina and Commissioner Jim Gordon finally managed to stop him from crossing the line.

Following the funeral for Tommy, Nightwing came to see Bruce and they go out to stop the Riddler after an armored car robbery. At this point, Bruce and Selina both knew about their dual life as they have chosen to trust each other with their secret.

Trails from Lazarus Pit lead him to seek attention of Ra's al Ghul by kidnapping his daughter Talia al Ghul following a showdown between the two while Lady Shiva savagely beats down Catwoman to a pulp. A run-in with Scarecrow causes Huntress to turn against Selina and Harvey Dent makes a surprising return, who is no longer Two-Face.

Batman is suspicious about a resourceful new mysterious enemy working from shadows who is responsible for his allies and enemies to acting weird and out of their characters. This is someone who knows a lot about him and he cannot even trust his allies now. Plus, a person believed long-dead from past makes a surprise return to haunt him.

The Dark Knight Returns | Comics

After the demise of second Robin, Jason Todd, Bruce Wayne has given up fighting crime as vigilante hero Batman and is 55 now. Later, all known superheroes except Superman were banned by government and forced into retirement as well. All of these happened nearly ten years ago and in this future; crime has been escalated in high levels as never seen before because of rise of a new gang. After a decade-long voluntary retirement from crime-fighting and vigilantism, he mostly keeps himself indulged in alcohol and various death-defying sports on a regular basis just to bury his guilt.

However, a new breed of terrorizing criminals of Gotham City called "The Mutants" has made Bruce wear his legendary cape and cowl once again. One of his allies; Commissioner Gordon was forced to retire from force and that very day, two major incident hits Gotham City. The first blast from past came in form of Bruce's old friend Harvey Dent, who used to be a district attorney and then psychotic villain Two-Face, who has been cured of his facial scars but the mental instability is something that has not been cured. As Dent has returned back in his old ways, The Dark Knight returns in action again.

The Dark Knight Returns | Comics

When Batman went into a departure, his oldest arch-nemesis, The Joker slipped into a catatonic state and upon hearing about his return in a television report, he reawakened after nearly a decade with an evil grin and his old twisted obsession over him. Gordon was now replaced by a new Commissioner Ellen Yindel, who is not a supporter of any vigilance. A 13-year-old girl Carrie Kelley was saved from a small gang of Mutants by Batman when a major crime wave hit the city. Wearing a Robin costume, she goes looking for The Dark Knight while also taking on few petty criminals on her way.

With Mutant gangs running rampant over with no one to stop them and their secret leader, Batman decides to step in. He discovers a connection to a United States Army general, who has been supplying weapons to them and during confrontation the latter commits suicide. The Mayor remains silent on this while leader of Mutant gang threatens Gordon and following a lead, the Bat found their secret lair. Incapacitating most of them from armored supertank-like Batmobile, he engaged the Mutant leader in a hand-to-hand combat but got beaten badly because of his growing age.

Carrie got mixed up into this chaos while following Batman and is recruited later as newest Robin after she managed to save his life from Mutant gang. He is taken back to Batcave so that Alfred could tend to his wounds and Mutant Leader is arrested. In custody, he kills Mayor and Jim Gordon schemes on luring that bastard in a fight in front of his gang. As his followers watched, Batman brutally cripples him down with tactics, humiliating him. While many are arrested, some of the Mutants start seeing The Dark Knight as a role model and calling themselves as "Sons of Batman".

Obsessed with Batman, the Clown Prince of Crime puts his plans on motion to meet his old friend once again and make his dramatic return. So, he escapes Arkham Asylum by killing his psychiatrist Bartholomew Wolper and every audience member from a reality show. Then he proceeds by torturing an elderly Selina Kyle, formerly Catwoman, leading Batman to face him for one last time. In a twisted way, his greatest villain delivered him one final blow that would mess him up badly and would set some events in motion. In an epic final showdown, he faces the Man of Steel, now a government agent sent to stop his reign.

The Dark Knight Returns (Hardcover)

"The Dark Knight Returns" is a four issue mini-series published monthly by DC Comics in 1986. It was written and drawn by legendary comic-book creator Frank Miller (All-Star Batman and Robin, The Dark Knight III – The Master Race) and Klaus Janson. A direct sequel to this epic mini-series, "The Dark Knight Strikes Again" from same creator was later also published later in 2001. Nearly three decades after, Miller decided to complete his Dark Knight Trilogy by writing the third arc and completed Dark Knight III: The Master Race with artist Andy Kubert (Damian – Son of Batman, Flashpoint). He was also responsible for creating the definitive "Batman – Year One" story, which was critically praised.

The series also worked as a part of inspiration for director Christopher Nolan's 2012 release The Dark Knight Rises, a finale to his Batman trilogy starring actor Christian Bale. The story was later adapted for a two part animation movie titled Batman: The Dark Knight Returns (2012) from DC Universe Animated Original Movies line. The Dark Knight Returns heavily influenced director Zack Snyder to cast actor Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill respectively for portraying a near-similar brawl scene of World's Finest in his 2016's live-action superhero movie "Batman v Superman – Dawn of Justice" from DC Extended Universe, which also features cameo appearance from Aquaman and a special appearance of Wonder Woman.

Daredevil/Batman – Eye for an Eye | Comics

Marvel's "Man Without Fear" meets The Dark Knight of the DC Universe who strikes terror in the hearts of the cowardly criminal mobs of all sorts. Both of these urban heroes rely a lot on their own skills and the very athletic physique they possess, which has made them both a legend to their adversaries in all places.

Daredevil/Batman – Eye for an Eye | Comics

They both have spent their whole lifetime practicing to defend innocent people who cannot save themselves from the vile monsters of the society. Orphaned as a child, they both chose the very hard path to serve the lives of the common masses. These two vigilante heroes came face to face when two of their deadliest enemies decided to become allied forces together for greater evil.

While investigating a murder mystery in the sewers, Batman encounters the blind superhero Daredevil there, unbeknownst of the latter's intention and surprise attacked him. They tussle and haggle a bit for sometime, but soon realize that they are too good for each other to defeat and that they are mistakenly attacking each other by thinking the other as an opponent.

Actually it is Batman's nemesis, the villainous Two-Face who has now teamed up with one of Daredevil's excessively bulky and incredibly super-strong adversary Mr. Hyde and they both are planning to get their hands on a deadly genetic device capable of immense power. If Batman and Daredevil do not work together and figure the actual plot of these two villains in time, then there will be heavy casualties for sure and it will be too late for both of them to act and save the day ever again.
