Batman: Gotham by Gaslight

Synopsis: In an age of mystery and superstition, how would the people of Gotham react to a weird creature of the night, a bat-garbed vigilante feared by the guilty and the innocent alike?

PRESENTER:
A woman?

Of course.

But, is she human?

Well, that's another story.

The Gotham Gaiety Girls

presents...

Ivy, the Plant Lady.

(MUSIC PLAYING)

But, be warned, fellas.

This ivy is poison.

Dare you taste

her forbidden fruit?

(CHUCKLES)

MAN:
Ah.

MAN 2:
Ooh.

Disarm them all already.

Let's see those leaves fall.

(GASPS)

You gave me a start.

I thought for a minute...

Well, you're clearly

a real gentleman.

You lonely?

I hate to see a man lonely.

I got a generous nature.

And I'm sure

you're generous too.

Ain't ya, mister?

My room's not far.

Or maybe you

don't want to wait.

No. No!

No!

BOY:
You took the shortcut

through outsider's territory.

You gotta pay the tariff.

Ain't that right, Dickie?

Name's Jason. 'Member?

DICKIE:
We don't

say our names.

Oh, let's go back

to the flop, fellas.

It's getting awful late.

Don't go yellow on me, boy,

or you know what you'll get.

Don't you worry, Bill.

We're on the job.

What are you scared

of the dark, Little Tim?

Nah, it's just...

After what happened

to Johnny Gobbs, I...

That ain't real, Timmy.

He's like Santa Claus.

DICKIE:
Just a story they tell

to keep young turfs like us

from making an honest living.

Oh, he's real, all right.

That's why you gotta pay us.

JASON:
For protecting you

from monsters.

Now pay up.

(STAMMERING)

(IMITATES STAMMER)

I think we might have

broke 'em, boys.

- B-bat!

- (GASPING)

Holy shit!

Stick 'im, boys.

(GRUNTS)

(YELLING)

You're the galumph who's been

making a nuisance of yourself

all over Gotham, ain't ya?

Well, now you're

in Big Bill Dust's territory,

interfering with my amiable

Cock Robins.

You're bad for business.

Bad all 'round.

- Too bad for you.

- (CRACKING KNUCKLES)

(GRUNTING)

Aah!

(GRUNTS)

(GROANS)

Go home.

Am home.

Home to mommy.

He ain't got one.

None of us do.

Or we run off from something

even worse than this.

This is our family now.

Making something here.

Taking something back

from Gotham.

Make something else.

Something better.

We got no choice.

He'll just chase us down,

find us again.

- (CRACKS)

- (SCREAMS)

He won't be chasing anyone

for a long time.

Go to St. Caduales,

ask for Sister Leslie.

She'll help you.

(WOMAN SCREAMS)

Get off the street, now!

(WOMAN CONTINUES SCREAMING)

(GASPING)

(EXHALES SLOWLY)

MAN:
Blood, sweat and tears.

That's what turned this dream into

a magnificent reality, gentlemen.

That and Bruce Wayne's money.

(ALL LAUGHING)

(CHUCKLES)

Spoken like a true,

county prosecutor, Mr. Dent.

Money always helps.

But it is the ingenuity of the

city's captains of industry

that provided these marvels.

MAN:
And may you select few truly

enjoy this special preview

of the Gotham World's Fair.

(SWEEPING MUSIC PLAYING)

(ENGINE ROARING)

The stairway to heaven.

MAYOR:
A fully electronical lantern,

bright enough to illuminate

the very celestial

firmament above.

Higher even than

the police department's

new lighter-than-air

patrol craft.

Let's see it.

The light tends to show off a bit

better in the night time, Ambrose.

But here's a sight you needn't

wait to marvel at.

Gotham's own answer

to the Eiffel Tower.

The fox wheel will elevate you

two hundred and fifty feet

into the sky,

at the astonishing rate

of 15 miles an hour.

Heavens! Can the human body even

survive that kind of motion?

Most certainly, ma'am.
