Visit Elseworlds: where familiar characters appear in unfamiliar situations, their appearance or natures subtly altered or changed dramatically, where a tiny difference in what we know as the DC Universe can result in amazing new realities...In a 1950's noir-styled Gotham City, Selina Kyle, the "Cat-Woman", is dead. The list of suspects is huge - arrogant millionaire playboy Bruce Wayne; small-time card-sharp Jack "Joker" Napier; vicious, disfigured killer "Clayface" Hagen; timid bank clerk Edward "Riddler" Nygma; crime lord Oswald "Penguin" Cobblepot; the "Bat-Man" who is beginning to plague Gotham's criminal underworld - even a nameless "Alligator Man" who appears to live in Gotham's sewers. Can Dick Grayson, ex-cop turned "Boy Wonder" private eye, find the killer and solve the mystery of Kyle's murder? Or will he, too, find that even nine lives can run out?
