The chaos and battle after Gotham City's 200th Anniversary Parade.


Vicki Vale approached the Batwing, but was captured by The Joker, who then lead her to the top of the Gotham Cathedral. Dazed, but not finished, Batman pursued them. At the top of the Cathedral, Batman discovered one of Vicki's slippers, that lead him to the Bell Tower. Batman went to the Bell Tower and heard Joker's voice. After Batman defeated three of Joker`s Goons, the two adversaries finally confronted each other in single combat.

In a moment of opportunity, the Joker pulled Batman and Vicki off the belfry, where they clung to the ledge for their lives. As the Joker began to mock them, his Helicopter appeared, he grabbed a hold of a dangling rope ladder, and was about to escape. Batman shot a wire around the Joker's leg, which connected it to a stone gargoyle on the ledge. As the Joker was lifted away, the wire pulled the gargoyle loose, Joker relinquished his grip on the ladder, and fell to his death.
