Batman: Year One

Taking the bat crashing through his window as a sign, Bruce Wayne fashions a suit of armor in the likeness of a bat. Taking his war to the streets, the Batman quickly becomes an enemy of the Gotham City Police Department, but young James Gordon has a feeling about the Batman, as he poses less of a threat to the city than the GCPD itself.
