He also visits the LEGO games, recently LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes appeared. Originally, the superhero comes from comics, of course, and there are hundreds of these. One of these comics is Batman: The Dark Knight Returns and this one is definitely worth reading!
Batman: The Dark Knight Returns consists of four different stories: The Dark Knight Returns, The Dark Knight Triumphant, Hunt The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Falls. However, the different parts do follow each other, so that there is an overarching story. Bruce Wayne has grown into an old man and has retired from fighting crime for some time. Due to his absence, the Mutants have taken over the streets.
After coming into contact with these thugs, Wayne decides it’s time to fight the injustice, especially the Mutants. In the fights against them, he saves, among others, Carrie Kelly, who presents himself as the new Robin. Someone who can use Batman well, because his body does not always cooperate well due to his age.
During the battle with the Mutants, a new problem arises. The Joker, Batman’s nemesis, has devised a new master plan to commit a massive massacre. Of course it’s up to The Dark Knight to stop him from doing this, with Robin also having to lend him a helping hand.
In the last part of the book, Superman also appears on the scene. The US government has asked him to stop Batman from his violent fight against crime. Now Batman of course does not just let this happen, which results in a real battle of the titans.
