Synopsis

Where Were You on the Night Batman Was Killed? is a four part Batman storyline based on a concept by Julius Schwartz and written by David Vern Reed with illustrations by John Calnan. It's published in the Batman title and the story is developed with some of Batman's most important villains as the main characters.

History

When Batman goes missing and rumors of his death spread, several of the criminals of Gotham City gather together to find the responsible for killing their long-time enemy. In a criminal court, Ra's al Ghul acts as the judge and Two-Face as the prosecutor who interrogates some of the villains that claim to have killed the Caped Crusader. Each of them testify and give their versions of their last encounters with Batman.

Catwoman and Riddler are the first villains to give their testimonies, but once they are finished, their stories are proven to be fake by Two-Face, who recreates some of their crazy theories to prove them wrong.

The third witness is Lex Luthor, who claims that the death of Batman was a byproduct of his murder attempt on Superman. Unfortunately for Lex, Superman happens to be nearby and shows in the criminal court to deny Luthor's claim.

Finally, it is the Joker who reveals that he somehow managed to murder Batman and he has enough evidence to prove he is right. It is then that "Two-Face" reveals himself as Batman in disguise and he explains that he staged the whole criminal court charade to find the criminal who killed an innocent man, who was dressed as Batman. Joker, unaware that the had killed the wrong person, was once again captured and taken back to Arkham Asylum.
