The Dark Knight has been missing for ten years and the world has grown darker in his absence. Heroes, once worshipped by a grateful world, are now out of fashion, forced to work off-radar for fear of government reprisals. From the anarchy on the streets a new threat has arisen, the mutants, a violent gang spreading fear and death wherever they go.
With Police Commissioner James Gordon on the point of retirement, it seems the city is sleepwalking into the abyss. Can a middle-aged, bitter Bruce Wayne with violence issues really bring the mutants to their knees? And if the Dark Knight is unleashed will he survive a government plan to use Superman against him?
