After the tragic murder of Batman at the hands of his foes, his ward Dick Grayson seeks to avenge the death of his mentor, despite attempts by Superman, Wonder Woman and others to stop him.
One of the most appreciated fan films isn’t even a film at all; though it boasts a budget that some independent features would be envious of.
With nothing more than the aid of Commissioner Gordon (Mark Brodkin), Dick begins re-training his body to take up the fight his mentor had left behind. And much to the dismay of his wife, and former Batgirl, Barbara (Gloria Payne), he assumes the mantle of Robin once more to uncover the truth behind Batman’s death; a truth everyone from the Joker (Brian C. Bethel) and Catwoman (Kimberly Page) to Wonder Woman (Kate Clarke) and Green Lantern will fight to keep hidden.
At a time when the thought of seeing a collection of heroes in one piece was unfathomable, a good eight years prior to the release of “The Avengers,” to feature Superman, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern together with a respectable budget to back them up was just fantastic.
