In the bleak and ominous future of Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1, itís been a decade since Bruce Wayne hung up his cape, following most of the other superheroes who had been forced into retirement. Facing the downside of middle age, a restless Bruce Wayne pacifies his frustration with racecars and liquor -- but the Bat still beckons as he watches his city fall prey to gangs of barbaric criminals known as The Mutants.
The return of Harvey Dent as Two-Face finally prompts Wayne to once again don The Dark Knightís cowl, and his dramatic capture of the villain returns him to crime-fighting -- simultaneously making him the target of law enforcement and the new hope for a desolate Gotham City. Particularly inspired is a teenage girl named Carrie, who adopts the persona of Robin and ultimately saves Batman from a brutal attack by the Mutant leader. Armed with a new sidekick and re-energized with a definitive purpose, The Dark Knight returns to protect Gotham from foes new...and old.
