Synopsis for "The First Batman"

After seeing an old home movie of his father, Dr. Thomas Wayne, in a "Batman" costume for a masquerade party, and learning from Dr. Wayne’s diary that he was marked for death by gangster Lew Moxon, Batman and Robin realize that Joe Chill was only a tool of Moxon’s and go after the real murderer of Thomas Wayne only to find he has no memory of Wayne or Chill, or so he claims.

Batman decides to wear his father's Bat-costume in order to force Moxon to reveal the truth. The shock of seeing what he thinks is the spirit of Thomas Wayne, causes Moxon not only to tell the truth, but also run away in fear and despair. As Moxon runs away from Batman, the hero tries to warn the thug about an incoming truck, but Moxon wouldn't listen and ends up killed by the vehicle. In the end, Bruce places his father's Bat-Costume in the trophy room of the Batcave, as a reminder of the late Thomas Wayne and his murderer, who met the same kind of justice.
