The Reign of Emperor Joker

Part 1 of The Reign of Emperor Joker.

Superman and the others infiltrate Joker City (once Gotham City) in order to find Batman, and to confront Emperor Joker.

Plot (Spoilers):

Superman, Lois, Steel, Supergirl, and Superboy attempt to infiltrate Gotham City - now known as Joker City, home of Joker's throne room. They are attacked by Joker fish, but Aquaman makes a quick appearance to help them out. Superboy voices his mistrust of Lois but is dismissed by Superman.

Steel and Lois go off to distract the Joker while Mr. Mxyzptlk conserves his power. The rest go off to try to find Batman and are attacked by Bounty. Although they dispatch him, Ignition appears and knocks out Superboy and Supergirl. Ignition is about to kill Superman when Bizarro interferes, claiming Superman for his own, but Superman breaks his spirit and is left alone.

Meanwhile Lois and Steel reach the Joker's throne room, but Lois treacherously gives an unconscious Steel to the Joker. Intrigued, he listens to her business proposal.

Superman hears the nightly cry of pain again, and follows it to GCPD headquarters where he finds Batman, dead.
