Late into Bruce's career, after capturing the Joker and saving his hostages, Batman and Robin investigated the suicide of a number of Bruce’s friends. They eventually figured out that the culprits were Poison Ivy and Killer Croc.
After stopping them, Batman and Robin found out that the Joker had escaped. Bruce was too injured to go out and stop him, however, and when Jason overheard Bruce say he wasn’t ready to take on the mantle of Batman, he went to find the Joker on his own. Unfortunately, after locating his hideout, he was beaten to death by the Joker's henchmen.
