Gotham is in great danger when the government assembles a group of villains — code named the Suicide Squad — and forces them to break into Arkham Asylum to retrieve top secret information stolen by The Riddler. Things take a turn for the worse when one of the Squad members (Harley Quinn) frees The Joker, who is intent on blowing up Arkham Asylum and Gotham City. Batman must use his superhero wits and strength to thwart the wicked plans of The Joker and the Suicide Squad.
