A diabolical villain who seems to know Batman's every move sets out to clean up the streets of Gotham for good and destroy the caped crime-fighter in the process. Every night, Batman protects the citizens of Gotham from the shadows. But lately another vigilante has been prowling the streets, and his merciless methods are more frightening than reassuring. Now, as the Red Hood commences to exterminating the scum of the city with extreme prejudice, the Joker resurfaces to taunt his old nemesis by digging up some skeletons that were best left buried.
