Synopsis
The Reaper re-appears, but this time it is Joe Chill's son Joseph in the costume. Afraid her father has returned, Rachel Caspian heads to Gotham. Walking past the Wayne Foundation, Rachel runs into the Reaper. Batman saves her, but Chill manages to retrieve his father's gun. 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.
