Synopsis
In a world where America is still part of a church-dominated England, Bruce Wayne survives the death of his parents in Gotham Towne. When Bruce comes of age, James Gordon tells Bruce that he suspects Joe Chill killed his parents under orders from the government. Bruce takes on the guise of the Batman to take his revenge for their murders. But he discovers that the conspiracy leads past Dr. Erdel's Green Man Project to a Star Chamber. Determining that the system was responsible for his parents’ deaths, Batman vows to carry on their quest to free people from oppressive religious rule.

Indexer Notes

Dr. McNider tells Bruce of working with Alan Scott, Carter and Shiera, and Rex Tyler. In the mainstream universe these people would be the Golden Age Dr. Mid-Nite, Green Lantern, Hawkman, Hawkgirl, and Hourman. In the mainstream DC Universe, Judson Caspian was the vigilante called the Reaper whom Batman encountered in the second year of his career. The Lori with whom Arthur Curry was mated was presumably Lori Lemaris. The witch is unnamed, but speaks her spells in backwards-speak and wears a costume reminiscent of the Zatanna from the mainstream DC Universe. The Green Man is an alien, found by a Kansas couple and turned over to the state, who possesses powers and abilities beyond those of mortal men; i.e., in the mainstream DC Universe, Superman.
