Spawned from the animated series and hailed by critics and fans alike as the best Batman movie of all time, Batman: Mask of the Phantasm sheds new light on Bruce Wayne's past just before donning the cape and cowl for the first time.

It seems as though Gotham City mobsters are being murdered one by one, and Batman is to blame! But just as Batman starts putting the pieces together to this bizarre mystery, a past love ironically returns to Gotham City.

And let's not forget about the Joker's part in the film, but that's covered in the Batman: The Animated Series guide!
