The Batman Chronicles – Part 1

Batman: Good Grief 

A man with dyed yellow hair puts envelopes into a mailbox labeled “WAYNE” outside of a manor, one of the envelopes is green with a black question mark on the front. A man, in a black tuxedo and black bowtie, with black hair comes out of the manor and gets the mail out of the mailbox before speaking.

Bruce Wayne 

Mr Zedno, thank you for delivering my mail. 

Zedno

No problem, Mr Wayne.

Bruce Wayne 

Please, call me Bruce.

Bruce opens an envelope and reads a letter while Mr Zedno leaves. Bruce enters the manor for as a black limo pulls up to the manor in a few minutes, before walking out with a suitcase followed by another, younger, man. Bruce and the younger man get into the back of the black limo before the limo drives off. 

WEST GOTHAM – MORNING 

Bruce and the young man exit the black limo in front of a penthouse building. Bruce still carries a suitcase with him. 

Bruce Wayne

 I guess this is where the party is at.

Bruce and the younger man enter the penthouse and walk up the stairs to the roof. Bruce is greeted by a trio of men. Bruce shakes the hand of a Caucasian man, wearing a black suit, with red hair and beard.  

Bruce Wayne

Warren, Gunther, and Armand why are you why are you throwing a party? 

Warren Lawford

We’re bored rich guys, throwing parties keeps us out of trouble.

Bruce Wayne

Great party. I need to thank your driver for picking us up and driving us here.

Warren Lawford

You need to thank my driver? Awful chummy with the help, Bruce. I know you were raised by a butler but do you thank the mailman for delivering your mail?

Bruce Wayne

Well we can’t all be raised by oil tycoons, I’m thankful that Alfred raised me. Also if I happen to see my mailman, yes, I do thank him.

A Hispanic man, wearing a black suit with a black tie and black slacks with a black belt, with black hair and a black beard speaks.

Armad Lydecker

Don’t get Warren started.

A Caucasian man with lots of tattoos all over his body, wearing yellow swimwear, speaks while leaning on the railing to the swimming pool. 

Gunther Hardwick

You know how he feels about the servants. 

Warren Lawford

You are, we are a higher breed of animal, Bruce. Your mailman is a nobody. Let’s just enjoy this wild party among the elites.

Gunther Hardwick

The party is going better than Bruce’s love life. Not that I’m one to talk, I’m looking to hook up with one of the women here at the pool. What are you doing here, Bruce? You’re not one to party or take a swim. I didn’t expect to see you here.

Bruce Wayne

Yeah, I’m not one to take a swim. I didn’t even bring swimwear, but Warren invited me and I had some time away from my work.

Warren Lawford

It’s not good to work all the time, Bruce. 

Bruce Wayne

Well some of us can’t sit on our ass while the company that we inherited from our father drills through the Earth to extract all it’s oil, now can we, Warren?  

Warren lowers his eyes from Bruce and he sighs loudly before looking back at him. Warren looks back at Bruce.

Warren Lawford

True. You know a crazy redhead, a college student, was protesting me extracting oil and she was doing it right outside my building. Nutjob. 

Armand Lydecker

Either way, we never see you outside of your job, Bruce. You’re always cooped up with work.

Warren Lawford

You’re always working, you don’t even have a girlfriend, I bet you even have a mancave.

Bruce chuckles. Another man walks up to Bruce, he’s wearing a similar tuxedo to Bruce’s own, Bruce shakes his hand.

Bruce Wayne

Hello, Edward. Nice suit. Also congratulations on starting your own tech company. 

Edward Nygma

Thank you. I don’t think you know this but I am a former employee of Wayne Enterprises, you laid me off a month or two ago. 

Edward Nygma turns to the younger man next to Bruce and shakes his hand. 

Edward Nygma

And you are?

Tim Drake 

Tim….Tim Drake.

Meanwhile, on the roof of the penthouse building across, the preoccupied guests take no notice of a young Caucasian man wearing a gas mask and helmet. The young man is also wearing green pants and a green jacket that is attached to a glider kite, the young man uses the glider kite to glide over to the penthouse building’s roof where the party guests are. The young man grabs a silver ball from the pocket of his pants which he throws down onto the roof, the silver ball releases a white gas when it cracks. The gas causes the guests to fall asleep but Bruce manages to hold his breath long enough to run into the bathroom with his suitcase. The young man steals a few jewels and a pearl necklace from female guests offscreen, stuffing them in his pockets, before using his glider kite to glide back to the roof of the penthouse building across. Although the young man does drop a piece of jewelry which falls to the street below. 

Kite Man

You’ve just been robbed by….KITE MAN, HELL YEAH! 

Inside the bathroom, Bruce opens his suitcase revealing his batsuit. Bruce puts on a grey bodysuit, the chest emblazoned with a stylized black bat inside a yellow oval, a wide scalloped cape, gloves with a series of fin-like projections, boots, and a close-fitting cowl.

Bruce Wayne

If I want to be Gotham’s protector, If I want to be “Batman”, I have to protect the people of Gotham anytime and this is the time to start. 

Holding his breath, Batman rushes out of the bathroom and he gets back to the roof.

Batman uses his cape to glide across the penthouse buildings. Kite Man notices Batman and is shocked as Batman hits a dropkick which drops him with an awful thud. Batman uses Bat-Cuffs on Kite Man. Batman glides back to the other roof, goes into the bathroom and a few minutes later Bruce Wayne comes out of the bathroom. Bruce dials a phone number. A little while later there are police cars with lights flashing all around, the police take Kite Man into their custody as he is put in the backseat. Bruce waits for the guest to wake up, he checks his watch as Warren wakes up.

Bruce Wayne

I have to go.

Warren Lawford

Already?

Bruce Wayne

I have work tomorrow, and I need the sleep.

Warren Lawford

We just got sleep, why do you need more sleep? Ah whatever. Goodbye.

Bruce and Tim leave the penthouse much to Warren’s disappointment as the scene fades to black. 

THE BATCAVE

Bruce sits down in a maroon colored chair and pulls out his golden utility belt. Bruce starts tinkering with utility belt and cowl as the scene fades to black. When the scene returns, Bruce presses a button on his belt and a gas mask appears on his cowl as Tim watches over his shoulder. The scene fades to black.

Batman: Mad In Love

The scene starts with Bruce Wayne entering a dark room. Inside the room is a man, wearing a lab coat, with golden hair.

Bruce Wayne

Hello, Mr Tetch. You called two days ago and on the phone you said that the project for increasing the brain’s potential was finished, sounds intriguing.

Mr Tetch

Yes, we can begin mass producing these microchips with a large enough donation.

Bruce Wayne

Please give me a demonstration. 

Mr Tetch places a miniature table in a glass box that has white mice and then places microchips on each of the mice’s head. The microchips light up red as Mr Tetch talks to them.

Mr Tetch

Maybe I can make you all act a bit more civilized…..bravo! 

The mice begin to sit around the table before Bruce tilts his head at them. 

Bruce Wayne

Are these microchips truly increasing the potential of these mice’s brains or is this brain manipulation? 

Mr Tetch

Uh…

Bruce Wayne

Tampering with brainwaves, mind manipulation. It just raises too many questions. Sorry but I have to stop the funding for this project, this is not what I had in mind when I gave you the project.

Bruce exits the room and then the building. Mr Tetch leaves the room while frowning, he turns to a female secretary, wearing a light blue sweater, with golden hair and blue eyes.

Mr Tetch

Alice, Mr Wayne is stopping the funding for our project. 

Alice

Cheer up, Mr Wayne knows what you are worth to the company.

Mr Tetch

 Really? Sometimes I feel like you are the only one who gets me.

Alice

That’s funny, my boyfriend says that all the time.

Mr Tetch scowls at Alice when she mentions her boyfriend, she doesn’t notice, but he quickly changes his expression.

Alice

Don’t worry, I’m sure we’ll get a new project soon enough.

Alice giggles. Mr Tetch exits the building. 

[Ad break]

The next day Mr Tetch enters the building as he hears the sound of Alice crying at her desk.

Mr Tetch

What’s wrong?

Alice

I just wanted to talk to Billy about where our relationship was going but the next thing I knew we were yelling, shouting, screaming at each other that we never want to see each other again.

Mr Tetch tries to comfort Alice, patting her on the back, before entering his room. Mr Tetch grins and speaks to himself. 

Mr Tetch

Haha. She’s mine for the asking. I’ll sweep her off her feet and take her to a wonderful night on the town. And I’ll kill Alice’s boyfriend, I’ll kill anyone that makes Alice cry, I’ll kill anyone that tries to take Alice from me. 

Mr Tetch puts on his lab coat and mindlessly stuffs a handful of microchips into the pockets of his pants. The fades to black.

ALICE’S HOUSE – NIGHT

Mr Tetch, wearing a purple coat over a green sweater and a large black hat, knocking on the door to a house. Alice opens the door.

Alice

Jervis?

Mr Tetch

I’m here to make you forget about your recent break-up. Gotham can be a wonderland, Alice. Tonight let me be your guide.

Jervis Tetch enters the house and begins to dance with Alice.

Alice

Jervis, why are you doing this? My boyfriend and I didn’t break up, we just got into a small fight.

Jervis scowls at Alice again then looks genuinely disappointed as a long, drown out sigh escapes from his lips.

Mr Tetch

I didn’t want to do this, but all is fair in love and war.

Jervis Tetch gets a microchip from the pocket of his pants, he puts the microchip on Alice’s head. Jervis opens the front door and sweeps Alice off her feet, leaving the house without closing the door. The next scene starts as the sun shines through the window, showing Bruce on his phone.

Bruce Wayne

Hey, Alice, I’m leaving you another message so when you answer your phone I would like to discuss a new project for Mr Tetch.

Bruce hangs up.

Bruce Wayne

She’s still not answering. Let me just check on her personally.

Bruce Wayne heads to Alice’s home, when he gets there he notices the open door and garage.  

Bruce Wayne

That’s weird….the door is open, the car is still here, no answer from her phone since yesterday. Where is she? Something happened. I-I have to protect her.

Bruce dials another phone number.

Bruce Wayne

Hey, Robin, locate Alice’s phone and send me the coordinates as soon as you can. I think I’m looking at a kidnapping.

Robin (V.O)

Got it.

Bruce Wayne

Over and out.

The scene cuts to Jervis in a Wonderland amusement park at night. A female is dressed as The Cheshire Cat at a long brown table while a security uniform lays underneath her chair. Alice has been dressed in a blue Victorian dress, revealing tattoos of stars on one of her arms,as she sits at the long brown table with her light blue sweater underneath her chair. Jervis Tetch is dressed as The Mad Hatter as he sits at the long brown table. The Mad Hatter talks to Alice.

The Mad Hatter

This was the bizarre fairytale world that I made for you…and we will live in it….this world might not be real but my love for you is real. I want to tell you that I love you but I’m too cowardly. I want to kill your boyfriend. 

Batman enters Wonderland. The Mad Hatter turns and sees Batman. The Mad Hatter grabs a pistol off of the long brown table and aims the pistol straight at him, standing up.

The Mad Hatter

And anybody that tries to take you from me, anybody that tries to spoil my storybook ending.

Batman

THIS ISN’T SOME SILLY STORYBOOK!

The Mad Hatter

Ah, but it is. It’s a beautiful story…You’re mighty in Gotham, Batman, but in Wonderland, The Mad Hatter reigns supreme.  It is a storybook. This is a storybook ending for me. I’ll blast you before you take her! I’ve waited my whole lonely life for her! This is my storybook ending, this is my happy ending. 

Batman quickly throws a batarang that knocks the pistol from The Mad Hatter’s hand. Batman tackles The Mad Hatter and uses Bat-Cuffs on The Mad Hatter.

Batman

You won’t be lonely in Arkham Asylum. You need help, Mr Tetch. 

Batman takes off the microchips from Alice and the security guard. Soon enough the police take Mr Tetch to Arkham Asylum as Batman drives the Batmobile. The scene fades to black.

Batman: Pushing Up Roses

A pale girl, wearing a pink shirt and black leggings, with red hair approaches what looks to be the campus of a university. A voiceover from the girl is heard.

Pam (V.O.)

Today is the start of my first semester of university, Gotham University. It marks the beginning of a new stage in my life, and one that I’ve been looking forward to. My name is Pam, and I’m sort of an environmentalist. 

Pam turns a corner in a hall……THUD! Where did that wall come from?! Pam suddenly found herself sitting, rather than standing, in the middle of the floor. A huge hand is offered to her as a Caucasian man helps her up. The next scene starts in a library as Pam sits at a table across the Caucasian man, wearing a black shirt and jeans, with brown hair. The girl and man both smile at each other as they read through their biology textbooks. A few minutes later the Caucasian man stands up, fully revealing his impressive frame and huge gut. The pale girl’s eyes widen and her mouth is left open in pure dread.  

Pam (V.O.)

That’s Antony, he’s about four times my size. Even with all our differences we’re surprisingly close as he always tries to involve me in whatever stuff he’s doing. I really do appreciate it…even though all I do is watch him in professional wrestling matches. It’s not like I am in love with him or anything. I don’t think that I ever have fallen in love with a guy, but that doesn’t stop Jason Woodrue from asking me to go out with him every Monday and Wednesday after class.

The next scene starts with Pam as she is writing in pen on a yellow piece of paper. Pam slides the paper across the black table to Antony. Antony writes on the paper in pen, he passes it to a young Caucasian male with dirty blonde hair and light brown eyes. The young man finishes writing before the camera shows that the students signed ”Pamela Lillian Isley”, “Antony Diego”, “Jason Woodrue” before Jason places the paper on the teacher’s desk. 

Antony Diego

Hey, Pam. I’m trying to get bigger and stronger because promoters only sign big men so do you know anything that has proteins and steroids?

Pam

Well, there is a beaker of a yellowish liquid that has proteins and is a steroid in the supply closet. 

Pam points to the supply closet.

Pam

Anabolic-androgenic steroids are hormones that increase overall muscle mass and have a testosterone-like effect…but…

Antony heads towards the supply closet as Jason sits next to Pam. 

Jason Woodrue

So will you go out with me, Pam? I just think it’s crazy that you won’t go out with me. 

Pam

Well, I won’t go out with you. Does that make me crazy? Possibly.

Jason Woodrue

What? You think a tall, muscular, intelligent guy is just going to walk out that door. I think you should go out with you so you have to go out with me.

Pam

Ha! Ha! Ha! Bless your soul. You really think you’re in control?

Pam didn’t even realize that as she spoke to Jason, Antony had left the table and had entered the supply closet. Antony grabbed the first beaker of a yellowish liquid he saw, before chugging the yellowish liquid despite a black skull and crossbones label on the beaker. Slowly, Antony’s muscles grow as he walks out of the supply closet door. Pam becomes wide-eyed and her mouth gapes open when she realizes what happened.

Pam

TONY, THAT’S VENOM! Those proteins do nasty stuff like make your muscles fire uncontrollably, make your blood cells burst, and make you go completely numb. It’s also addictive.

Jason Woodrue

 He’s going to go numb? Is he going to die?

Antony Diego

I don’t know how addictive it is, it tasted metallic like a ring post. 

Pam

You don’t have to be a biology genius like me to know you don’t put chemicals in your mouth without checking the label.

Antony Diego

 I feel stronger already, I feel the steroid going through my body down to my toes. I want it injected into my veins. 

Antony silently chuckled to himself. Jason seems no longer concerned with Antony as he continues to talk to Pam, getting uncomfortably close to her.

Jason Woodrue

You friendzoned me ten times, ten fucking times. Pam, when will you learn to love me instead of going after dumb jocks? Bitch. 

Pam’s head turns to Jason, she’s unblinking.

Pam

When you stop having a horrible personality, a terrible attitude, little to no self-awareness, because that’s my opinion of you. Until then, I will not go out with you. 

Jason Woodrue

Well, I can respect your opinion…..but I’m not good at accepting rejection.

Jason pushes Pam out of her chair with all the strength in his skinny arms, causing her to go headfirst into the floor. Antony rushes to help Pam up to her feet as Jason gets a metal storage shelving rolling cart that has more beakers of chemicals from the supply closet. Jason dumps the cart on Pam causing her to loudly scream in agony. Jason still seems unconcerned with Antony as he keeps talking to Pam.

Jason Woodrue

 See it all makes sense now, doesn’t it? You two get into a fight, he kills you, and he drinks venom to commit suicide. Bye-bye dearie. 

Jason turns around, his face full of smugness, as he goes to walk out of the classroom but Antony easily lifts the shelving rolling cart off of Pam. A huge hand is offered to Pam as Antony gets her up on her feet. Jason turns around and sees Pam. Pam has softer, smoother, even slightly darker..almost tanned skin. Pam’s hair and lips are now a dark shade of red. Jason kneels in front of Pam in awe and confusion.

Jason Woodrue

Pam? You look great…..especially for a dead woman. 

Pam

Hello, Jason. I think I’m going to turn a new leaf. I was so mean to you. I think I will go out with you. My skin has been moisturized, my hair and nails are healthier, even my lips are full….

Jason gets up and kisses Pam.

Pam

….of venom.

Jason pulls away, revealing the inside of his mouth is completely a shade of dark green. Jason falls backward to the floor. Pam holds her forehead as she leaves the classroom slowly followed by Antony.

Batman: Cold Shoulder

The scene starts in a hospital hall where Antony sits in a beige cushioned chair. Antony holds a bottle of a yellowish liquid in his huge hands. A man, wearing a labcoat, with brown hair and beard looms over the seated Antony.  

Antony Diego

How is she?

Doctor

She’s going to be ok. But there has been some damage to her brain, particularly in the frontal lobe. Damage to the frontal lobe can lead to changes in sexual habits, socialization, and attention as well as increased risk-taking.  

Antony Diego

Is it permanent?

Doctor

It could be, only time will tell. She’s awake if you want to see her.

Antony stares through the hospital room window. The camera zooms up on Pam in the hospital bed, she turns her head and smiles when she sees Antony. 

Pam

Hey buddy.

Antony Diego

Hey.

Pam

Hit my head.

Antony enters the room and approaches Pam.

Antony Diego

Yeah.

Doctor enters the room and speaks to Antony. 

Doctor

Sorry, I’m actually going to have to ask you to leave. 

Antony leaves the room. The doctor talks to Pam.

Doctor

What the hell happened to you? 

Pam

Been in a fight.

Doctor

You been in a fight?!

Pam

Yep. 

Doctor

Well, I won’t judge you but you’ll have to go through another MRI scan before we let you out.

Pam

Go easy on me, doc. I kinda…want to meet Harvey Dent and Bruce Wayne when I get out of here.

Doctor

Well you’ll probably be here for a week but afterward, I guess you could meet Harvey Dent and Bruce Wayne.

The doctor looks confused at Pam before the scene fades to black. 

[Ad break]

FANCY RESTAURANT – NIGHT – A WEEK LATER

The next scene starts, with Pam, wearing a green suit, and Harvey Dent at a table. Harvey is served a steak while Pam is served a salad. It’s been a week since Pam was first admitted in the hospital, after she got out she managed to pull some strings as president of the Environmental Club to meet Harvey Dent and Bruce Wayne. 

Harvey Dent

I’m starving, let’s eat.

Pam

Shouldn’t we wait for your friend?

Harvey Dent

Bruce? No, he’s always caught up in business.

JEWELRY STORE – SAME

Batman appears behind a man in a cryo suit. 

Batman

FREEZE!

Dr Freeze

That’s DOCTOR Freeze to you. 

Batman throws a batarang but Dr Freeze uses his freeze gun to freeze the batarang, causing it to be heavy and fragile as it drops to Dr Freeze’s feet. The frozen batarang shatters into pieces. Dr Freeze shoots his freeze gun three more times but misses as Batman rolls out of the way but on his fourth shot he manages to freeze Batman’s cape. Dr Freeze slowly freezes up Batman’s cape all the way up to Batman’s neck. Dr Freeze gets away in a van as Batman presses a button on his utility belt causing his batsuit to slowly heat up.

RESTAURANT – SAME TIME 

Pam

I hear he’s rich.

Harvey Dent

 Yeah, Bruce runs around with a high class crowd. There’s nothing we don’t know about each other. I think you’ll like him.

Pam

If he’s your friend, I’m sure I will. I propose an initiative to plant twenty million trees for twenty million dollars and was looking for you two to donate.

Harvey Dent

Well the money I’m spending isn’t actually mine, it’s taxpayers. I don’t think I can justify that large of a donation to the taxpayers…You know what, I’ll flip a coin, if you call it then I’ll promise you that the donation will happen.

Pam

Tails.

Harvey Dent flips a coin, it lands on heads.

Harvey Dent

Sorry, it’s not going to happen. 

Pam, unblinking, checks her diamond watch.

Pam

Well I don’t think Bruce is going to show up, I’ll just go to his building tomorrow. 

Pam kisses Harvey for a few seconds before pulling away and leaving the restaurant. Within a minute, Harvey’s head collapses to the table before the scene fades to black. 

WAYNE ENTERPRISES BUILDING – MORNING – A DAY LATER

It started with a slight awareness, a voice telling her something wasn’t right. Then she began to remember, she had gotten up from Jason trying to murder her. Pam went to the hospital, where she was diagnosed with a concussion. After a night or two, she was let out of the hospital. With a second gift of life, Pam’s intention was to live her life to save the planet. Pam tried to get Harvey Dent to donate but that didn’t happen and Bruce Wayne never even showed. Instead of the Gotham University campus, Pam found herself in a street in front of the Wayne Enterprise building. All around her people walked by, some pausing to look at briefly. The sight of Pam, a green suit around her shoulders. Pam took deep breaths, she couldn’t panic right now. She couldn’t cause a scene. Not when she needed help. Pam enters the lobby and waits a while before Bruce Wayne walks out to meet her, Pam’s mouth widens in awe but she notices Bruce’s stern glare at her.

Pam

I propose an initiative that can plant twenty million trees for twenty million dollars and I was looking for you to donate. 

The stern glare doesn’t disappear.

Bruce Wayne

You don’t have an appointment. 

Pam

HOW DARE YOU? Mr Dent and I waited for you until it was pitch black but you never came. You can save the planet…and you just don’t. 

Bruce Wayne

I’m sorry about missing the dinner but I’m going to have to ask you to leave if you don’t have an appointment. There is a party and an auction for a prized diamond with the proceeds going to the Gotham Botanical Garden if you want to attend, I’ll be there.

PAM’S ROOM – NIGHT

Bruce Wayne doesn’t care about saving the planet, the bitter shock of this revelation made her want to crumble. Pam wipes away some tears from her eyes, rips off a Bruce Wayne poster on her wall, and bangs on her desk with her right hand before throwing herself onto her bed. A disappointed sigh escapes her red lips before she talks to herself.

Pam

I still have hope to protect the environment from the thoughtless destructive force of corporations. I am mother nature. 

Frustrated, no, frustrated isn’t the word. Disappointed. Those feelings of disappointment would fade, however, they would be replaced by fierce rage in the upcoming years. Pam grabs her phone and dials a number.

Pam

Hey, Tony…What’s wrong?….oh….….I’m sorry none of the promoters will book you. Anyway…Tony, can you do me a favor and drive me to a party tomorrow?….Uh, sure you can join me. Get a tuxedo. Love you too.

Pam hangs up.

Pam

WAIT NO! “LOVE YOU TOO”?! Damn.

Pam sighs again as the scene fades to black.

A female voiceover introduces the guest as they enter a building. 

Summer Gleeson (V.O)

Tonight, an opportunity to dine with one of our fabulous flowers, this prized diamond draped around her neck. We have Gotham’s wealthiest including Bruce Wayne, Warren Lawford, Gunther Hardwick, and Armand Lydecker. I’m Summer Gleeson, signing out. 

The scene cuts to Bruce Wayne and Pam on the stage before cutting to Warren Lawford, Gunther Hardwick, Armand Lydecker, and Antony Diego in suits. Pam is wearing green gloves on her hands which she lifts, both hands filled with piles of sparkling, pink dust. Pam blows the dust, hitting a few of the men in the face.

Poison Ivy

The winner may dine with me, and may get a kiss. I’m Poison…..Poison Ivy. Let’s start the bidding.

Warren Lawford

Fifty thousand for Poison Ivy!

Gunther whispers to Warren.

Bruce Wayne

One million.

Gunther Hardwick

Two million!

Bruce Wayne

Three million!

Gunther Hardwick

Dr Freeze bursts through the doors and marches up to Poison Ivy, wearing the diamond necklace.

Dr Freeze

Give me your diamonds……

Poison Ivy blows some of the sparkling, pink dust in Dr Freeze’s face which he inhales. 

Dr Freeze

That dust is designed to heat a man’s blood, doesn’t work on a man as cold blooded as me. Give me your diamond necklace and diamond watch. 

Dr Freeze aims his freeze gun at Poison Ivy’s face before taking the diamond necklace and watch.

Dr Freeze

Still…you’re a clever little clover. Thanks for the diamonds. 

Dr Freeze aims the gun at Warren Lawford, Gunther Hardwick, and Armand Lydecker as he exits. Poison Ivy is unblinking, then she looks visibly disappointed. Poison Ivy starts following Dr Freeze out of the building

Poison Ivy

Come, Tony. 

Outside of the building, Poison Ivy and Antony Diego stop in front of Dr Freeze as he approaches a white van. 

Poison Ivy

I propose….

Dr Freeze

An initiative?

Poison Ivy

 …a team up. Me, spring, Mother Nature and you, winter, Jack Frost. 

Dr Freeze

And who’s that?

Dr Freeze points to Antony.

Poison Ivy

That’s…

Bane

Call me Bane…Bane of Humanity!

Dr Freeze looks confused.

Bane

Well, Bane is or WAS my wrestling ring name.

Dr Freeze

Well what can you do?

Bane

I’m strong, I know how to wrestle. 

Dr Freeze gives it some thought for a few seconds before unlocking the back of his van and motioning with his freeze gun.

Dr Freeze

Get in the van.

Poison Ivy and Bane get in the back of Dr Freeze’s van before he closes it, Dr Freeze gets in the driver’s seat. Bruce Wayne comes out of the building holding his suitcase just as Dr Freeze drives off. Bruce Wayne speaks into a little microphone that he pulls from his pant pocket. 

Bruce Wayne

Ignition 

As the Batmobile rounds the corner, Bruce steps directly into the path of the onrushing Batmobile. Bruce speaks into the little microphone.

Bruce Wayne

Stop. 

The brakes squeal as the Batmobile stops one yard short of Bruce. Bruce gets inside the Batmobile as the scene fades to black. 

[Ad break]

SNOWY CONES ICE CREAM FACTORY

Dr Freeze, wearing blue pajamas, walks in the main room and changed the air conditioning to maximum cold. The scene cuts to Poison Ivy, wearing a pink onesie with tiny candies printed on it, as she grows a rose into a huge thone. The scene cuts to Antony in his normal clothes on the second floor. The scene cuts to Batman in his Batmobile as he dials a number.

Batman

Robin, I’m going to need you at the Snowy Cones Ice Cream Factory in your costume.Over and out.

A while later, Batman and Robin enter the Snowy Cones Ice Cream Factory through the second floor using a ladder. Anthony approaches Batman and Robin, probably hearing them enter the factory. Robin kicks Antony in the head and then goes for a punch but Antony grabs Robin’s right fist before sending him tumbling down the stairs. Batman kicks Antony in the head and sidesteps two slow right hooks. Antony hits a right hook that sends Batman tumbling down the stairs. Poison Ivy comes, definitely hearing the fighting. Robin gets up the stairs only to be choked by Antony and then punched in the head. On the stairs, Antony grabs Batman by the neck from behind and starts beating on Batman’s chest with his right-handed fist.

Poison Ivy

Ha! Ha! Ha! Thank you Tony.

Batman manages to pull out Bat-Cuffs which he uses to cuff Antony’s right hand to the stair railing. Antony struggles trying to rip out of the Bat-Cuffs but without his Venom he is not strong enough. Poison Ivy runs away as Batman chases her into a room with the giant rose throne and pink lighting. Poison Ivy sits on the throne as Batman enters. 

Poison Ivy

Hi there.

Vines from the ceiling wrap around Batman’s ankles and hangs him upside down. 

Batman

That’s new, I didn’t know you could do that. 

Poison Ivy

This is all wrong, you are supposed to be on my side

Batman

You tried to use some kind of dust to coerce money from wealthy men.

Poison Ivy

 I did it for a good reason.

Batman

I’m not convinced.

Poison Ivy

I’m not that special. I can’t convince everyone. I’m just going to do what I want to do and what will have the most impact. 

Batman

You won’t get away with this.

Poison Ivy

For way too long, the politicians and the people in power, the Harvey Dents and Bruce Waynes of the world have gotten away with not doing anything to fight the climate crisis, to protect the environment but we will make sure that they will not get away with it any longer.

While he was talking to Poison Ivy, Batman was using a blade to cut down the vines. Batman flips so he lands on his feet. Poison Ivy goes to punch Batman but he uses Bat-Cuffs on her. Batman enters the main room. Batman backhands Dr Freeze, sidesteps a punch from Dr Freeze, dodges a backhand from Dr Freeze, and sidesteps a punch from Dr Freeze. Dr Freeze grabs Batman in a chokehold as the camera spins around, Batman gets out of the hold and hits a straight right punch knocking Dr Freeze down. Dr Freeze grabs his freeze gun and freezes Batman starting from his feet, working his way up.

Dr Freeze

The ice is beautiful.

Batman

And cold.

Dr Freeze

Like the billionaire who ruined my life, our lives.

Batman

I heard about your wife, I’m sorry. But do you really have to freeze to death every billionaire? I’m sure Bruce Wayne would have shown compassion and charity when he knew what the donation was for. 

Dr Freeze

Compassion, charity. Where were those pretty words when she needed to hear them?  Think of it. To never walk the beach on a summer’s day with a hot wind in your face and a warm hand to hold. Yes, I will kill for that. 

Batman throws a batarang which sinks into the freeze gun. Batman presses a button on his belt as his batsuit heats up. Within a few minutes, the ice that froze Batman has melted and Dr Freeze is in Bat-Cuffs. 

Batman

Freezing someone to death, ending a life is not power. To save a life, is true power. That’s a power you once had. So I’m asking you, Victor Fries, help me save a life. Save your wife’s life from MacGregor’s Syndrome and maybe you can save the life of the man your wife loved. I will make sure your wife is kept cryogenically frozen, in a lab in Arkham, use your time there to complete your research. 

The last scene is of Bruce Wayne writing checks to various environmental organizations and cryogenics when a large bat-like creature flies past his window.
