Batman: The Dark Knight Returns Part 2 picks up where Part 1 left off.  Batman’s return to an exorbitantly crime-ridden Gotham has been felt across the city – he’s wanted by the cops, the citizens are divided on the idea of a man who takes the law into his own hands and the mutants, having watched their leader get his ass handed back to him by the Batman, have splintered off, some becoming “Sons of Batman,” a violent vigilante group.  Meanwhile, the Joker, free of the catatonic state he resided in during Part 1, is poised to wreak deadly havoc.  And finally, on the brink of nuclear war with the Soviet Union, the President of the United States has enlisted Superman as his own personal boyscout/henchman to keep the peace.
