Batman: The Dark Knight

    (DC, 1986)
DC

The super-heroes have been persecuted, then regulated. Wonder Woman went back to her people; Green Lantern went to the stars; and Superman is now an agent for the government, quietly fighting their dirty little wars for them. Only Batman—that aging legend—dared laugh in their faces.

The world is poised on the brink of nuclear war; Batman has been declared an outlaw; and Commissioner Gordon has been replaced by a woman whose dearest desire is to see Batman dead or behind bars.

And the Joker is guest-starring on late night TV.

This four-issue series by Frank Miller changed the legend of the Batman forever. Before, he was just a crimefighter. When it’s over, he’ll truly have become the Dark Knight.
