A Death in the Family (Batman)

With his new political position granting him diplomatic immunity, there is nothing that Batman can do to bring Joker to justice legally. Seeking out vengeance in his own way, Batman hunts for a way to stop the Joker. Can Superman talk some sense into Batman before he commits the same crime as the Joker did, thus lowering himself to that level?
