THE BATMAN: A KNIGHT-TIME STORY Volume 1 Chapter 2 "The Big Chill" Synopsis (Batman Blueprint) | Fanboys Anonymous

THE BATMAN: A KNIGHT-TIME STORY - 100 RECORDS FROM THE WAYNE FOUNDATION ARCHIVES tells the entire history of Bruce Wayne and the Batman character as part of THE BLUEPRINT PROJECT created by Anthony Mango.

The Batman Blueprint incorporates references, storylines, characters and interpretations from all previous versions of the Batman franchise to tell the most absolute complete version of this story possible. The goal is to create a gold standard bible for both diehard fans and casual audiences.

For this entry, Tony Mango presents a dramatic reading and pitch synopsis of the second chapter in this tale, called Big Chill. Picking up from Chapter 1 (Why Do We Fall?), Thomas and Martha Wayne have been killed by Joe Chill and Bruce Wayne and Alfred Pennyworth must deal with the fallout of the funeral and their new relationship as adopted son and father. Bruce's inability to cope with his new life causes concerns after his poor coping mechanisms and depression affect his schooling, causing him to get into fights. While he picks up some friends along the way like Harvey Dent, he is proving himself incapable of developing a romantic relationship and after becoming even more disillusioned about the state of crime in Gotham City, Bruce starts to go down a dark, vengeful path and almost makes the biggest mistake of his life.
