In his quest to elucidate himself in the ways of the criminal mind, Bruce is mentored by a mysterious man called Ducard in the mastery of the physical and mental disciplines that will empower him to fight the evil he has vowed to destroy. He soon finds himself the target of recruiting efforts by the League of Shadows, a powerful, subversive vigilante group headed by enigmatic leader Ra''s al Ghul. Bruce returns to Gotham to find the city devoured by rampant crime and corruption. Wayne Enterprises, his family''s former bastion of philanthropic business ideals, now rests in the hands of CEO Richard Earle, a man more concerned with taking the company public than serving the public good. Meanwhile, Bruce''s close childhood friend Rachel Dawes, now an Assistant District Attorney, can''t secure a conviction of the city''s most notorious criminals because the justice system has been so deeply polluted by scum like crime boss Carmine Falcone. It doesn''t help that prominent Gotham psychiatrist Dr. Jonathan Crane bolsters insanity defenses for Falcone''s thugs in exchange for nefarious favors that serve his own devious agenda.
