The Insanity of the Dark Knight alternate universe takes place in an universe where Batman goes completely insane after the death of Jason Todd, eventually he becomes about as bad as some of his enemies and became locked up in Arkham.


After the Joker brutally murders Jason Todd, Batman begins to lose his sanity over what happened to him and how he could not rescue him in time. During this time, Bruce Wayne would begin to drink. This did not help. This made Bruce lose his sanity even quicker, and he did not want the Joker to get away with his next plan after this. When Batman found the Joker, who had murdered everyone in a Chinese restaurant, Batman grabbed one of the knives that was around and stabbed the Joker to death with it. When the police arrived, Batman carried the Joker's corpse outside and dropped it onto the ground for the police to see what he had done. Commissioner Jim Gordon asked Batman what had happened, but after asking him that, he left the scene of the crime. People all around Gotham were shocked when they had learned that Batman had broken his number one rule and that he had killed the Joker. After this happened, Batman killed other wanted criminals in Gotham, such as the Penguin by drowning him and Scarecrow by leaving him in a burning building paralyzed so he could not escape the own disaster he created. After a while, Commissioner Jim Gordon asked Batman to stop this much more sinister behavior, however, almost right after he asked him that, Batman strangled Jim Gordon to death. Unaware that Nightwing was around, Batman was taken down by him and taken into custody, eventually having his own identity exposed to the public. Shortly after his arrest, Alfred Pennyworth commited suicide right in front of the graves of Thomas and Martha Wayne. That was not the only thing that happened however, since later that week, Harvey Dent was declared sane and has now gotten out of custody, returning to his job as an attorney, however, he would have mental therapy done just to help him recover a little more. After spending a year or two in Arkham, Bruce Wayne became paranoid by the memory of strangling Jim Gordon to death and killing the Joker. Sometimes, Bruce was reported of having strange visions of the Joker taunting him while strangling Jim Gordon. Whenever this would happen, it seemed that Bruce would chuckle to himself. After being in Arkham for nine years, Bruce was going to be sent to be executed. When the security guards got to Bruce's cell, they were both attacked and killed by Bruce Wayne. Bruce would then escape Arkham while laughing crazily. Bruce would find himself back at a now abandoned Wayne Manner where he would sneak in and find a knife in the bathroom drawer. He would then crave a smile on his own face. After this, Bruce would reveal him to the public as the new Joker. Bruce would continue a new murder spree after that, and even burn down Arkham. After a while, Bruce would completely forget who he once was...
