Brief Synopsis:
As Bruce Wayne reconnects with Selina Kyle, his alter ego's eternal enemy is hell bent on proving a point, and nooone, not Thomas Elliot or Barbara Gordon, are going to stand in the way of that
Intention:
One of the irritable things about the later out-of-continuity DC movies that make use of the voice cast from the DC animated universe of shows...is that it often brings up the question of why don't they just make a continuation? Surely it can't be that problematic? Whatever their reasons, I feel like they waste big opportunities....and whenever they do go back to the DCAU, it's largely for superfluous reasons and giggles (Batman and Harley)

I figured time has come to see if I can do something different with the Dark Knight. The goal here is to adapt "The Killing Joke" but give it more of a DCAU vibe, i.e, follow the continuity of Batman TAS/New Batman Adventures, include characters like Nightwing and Catwoman etc.
