BATMAN (1940) (#0-713) (DC) #673 - Plot Synopsis


Batman (1940) #673
"Joe Chill in Hell" is written by Grant Morrison and drawn by Tony Daniel. For a man haunted by his past as much as Bruce Wayne is, it's always a dangerous trip to take a journey down memory lane. Batman revisits his first and primary mission of vengeance, seeking justice for the murder of his parents outside a Gotham City movie theater by the mobster Joe Chill. Flashing back to his early days as a crime-fighter, the Dark Knight recalls the power of his reputation even at its earliest stages, striking fear, as he knew it would, into the hearts of the criminal underground.

Each night for a month, Batman visits Joe Chill in his well-guarded penthouse flat, getting so close to him that Chill can never know when, or if, he's alone. In his troubled memory, Batman recalls how the gangster tried to justify his crimes by ascribing them to a grander political cause: "class warfare." But in the end, Wayne knew the truth as did Chill. Batman remembers how Chill ended his own life rather than face the uncertainty of the fate the costumed hero had planned for him. However, as the Caped Crusaders awakes from his reverie, he realizes that he's just as much mortal danger as was the hated Joe Chill.
