Gotham City is terrorized not only by recent escapees Joker and Penguin but by the original creature of the night, Dracula! Can Batman stop the ruthless vampire before he turns everyone in the city, including The Caped Crusader, Joker, and Penguin, into his mindless minions? The vampire hatches a plot to enslave Batman, the Joker, the Penguin, and the rest of Gotham City. One night, Batman witnesses a vampire attack but decides to put the incident at the back of his mind and, as Bruce Wayne, proceeds to host a corporate party at his manor. Dracula arrives, disguised as cultural anthropologist Dr. “Alucard”, claiming to be visiting to study the Batman (believing his legacy had an influence on Batman’s existence), and takes an interest in Vicki Vale, a reporter who is interviewing and dating Bruce.
