Working with his sister Marcia, Joseph kidnaps Rachel to use her as bait. Trapping Batman, the Chills use a psychoactive drug and a filmed re-enactment of his parents' deaths to try to drive the hero to suicide. But with a double-cross by Marcia and the help of Robin, Batman puts an end to Joseph's time as the Reaper.
