Ye Olde Gentlemen of the Major Spoilers Podcast are embarking upon the classic tale of The Batman set during the Victorian era.Â Put on your best Steampunk costume and join the trio in this week’s discussion.
It is 1889. Bruce Wayne returns from a visit to Europe back to Gotham, as does his old family friend Jacob Packer. Shortly after arriving, Bruce takes up the mantle of Batman, fighting off criminals on the street, using his friend Lieutenant Gordon’s knowledge of criminal gangs currently operating to know when to strike. Gordon also shows Bruce the case of a man who killed his wife with poison, he then tried to kill himself with the poison but left him alive with a permanent grin. At the same time it appears that Jack the Ripper has come to Gotham city, as a murder in Gotham seems to resemble the Ripper murders. After Wayne Manor is searched, a bloody knife is found under Bruce’s bed and Bruce is convicted of being the Ripper and sentenced to be hanged for his crimes.
Or will he?
