About this deal

The original Batman (Bruce Wayne) discovers his father's actions and disassociates himself with Thomas. He had become again what he had been in the beginning; a lone wolf, a mysterious figure haunting Gotham by night and striking fear into the hearts of evil-doers.

Having failed to arrest Jensen, Wayne took a Batman costume from the Gotham Museum and decided to attack Jensen directly as Batman.But The Joker’s MO in these first issues is straight up murder, maybe with a theft involved, but he’s plotting to kill multiple people in the first issue alone.

He’s just a vigilante, at best no different from those he fights, at worst, worse because he has a choice to do otherwise. A new Earth One — generally styled without the hyphen — was introduced in 2009; that world is very different from its pre-Crisis counterpart and is not treated in this chronology at all. Specific dates and common sense are usually given precedence over cover dates (for example, a story set at Christmastime can be presumed to take place in December even if the cover date says March-April! Wayne decided to permanently retire from the role; Cernak would be later stopped by Helena Wayne, who became the Huntress .

The Cat feels much more like 60s camp Batman, while The Joker stories retain aspects of the old school 30s pulp darkness. This time he somehow has smuggled a pack of cards that is oops, all jokers covered in poison into Martin’s house. Most of her panel-time consists of the aforementioned scooby-doobing and being threatened with Papa’s spanks. And yet, how can I read ancient Batman comics and not share all of the little treasures inside in hopes of some future traveler one day finding them and doing a little chuckle. In these early stories, Superman has yet to gain his famous powers of flight and battles corrupt landlords in lieu of crazed Super-Villains.

But don’t worry, surely Batman will find a cure to save himself and reverse the terrible afflictions Strange has visited upon his unwitting victims/accomplices, right? It turns out that Hugo Strange “discovered an extract that speeds up the growth glands” and he used it on all of the escaped “lunatics” he broke out of the asylum. Due to other commitments, Batman declined full membership status, and served only as an honorary member. During " Batman: Knightfall", the storylines split in two directions, following both the Azrael-Batman's adventures, and Bruce Wayne's quest to become Batman once more.It’s, here, disconnected from his moral code, but the mysterious symbiosis of The Batman and The Joker is already present, as if they are reflections of one another, each unable to kill the other because they could not exist without their reflection. When the television show was a success, I was asked to be campy, and of course when the show faded, so did the comic books.
