The Joker launches his most diabolical assault ever upon Commissioner Gordon and his family. It's up to Batman to stop this madman in his tracks – but in doing so, he will realize how he and his arch nemesis are very much the same.
Animated adaptation of Alan Moore and Brian Bolland's graphic novel, BATMAN: THE KILLING JOKE follows Batman as he tries to apprehend his nemesis The Joker while exploring the origins of his most famous foe. After escaping from prison, The Joker targets the Gordon family for his next attack and kidnaps the Commissioner to prove that a bad day can turn even the most honourable man insane, just like it did to him. With Barbara caught in the crossfire, The Joker taunts Batman from afar as he tortures Jim in one of Gotham's run-down amusement parks. Can Batman stop him before he succeeds in driving Gordon to the brink of insanity?
