    Hush Chapter Seven: The Joke last edited by omjadas on 08/21/22 07:01PM View full history



    Batman takes on the villain you've been waiting for: The Joker! One is the Heroic Dark Knight…the other is The Agent of Chaos. Batman's oldest enemy has killed one person too many , and Batman makes a new vow: "Tonight, The Joker dies by my hand!" For all the crimes The Joker has commited, Batman seeks retribution. Will the Dark Knight finally cross the ultimate line between Hero and Vigilante?


    Batman has just found that his friend Thomas Elliot has just been killed by the Joker.  Batman goes in to a rage and starts to beat the Joker.  The Joker tries to convince Batman that it really was not him.  Through all of this Batman is thinking of all the things the Joker has done to him.  How he killed Jason Todd and how he parylzed Barbra Gordan.  When Batman is about to kill the Joker, James Gordan comes to save Batman from doing something he would have regretted, and becoming the very evil he vowed to fight.  He spares the Jokers life.  At the end of it all you see Two-Face in bandages.
