Synopsis for "Batman: The Doom That Came to Gotham (Movie)"

Set in the 1920s, Bruce Wayne travels abroad for twenty years following the murder of his parents in his search for answers behind the criminal mind. But while investigating the disappearance of an expedition crew under Oswald Cobblepot's command, Bruce subdues an undead crewman named Gredon who was freeing an otherworldly creature encased in ice. Bruce and his crew (consisting of Kai Li Cain, Dick Grayson, Sanjay “Jay” Tawde, and butler Alfred Pennyworth) retrieve Gredon, and depart back to Gotham City, unaware that Gredon was infected with one of the entity's parasites.

Arriving at the Wayne Manor, Bruce and his group are shocked to find a clawed corpse in the library, as Bruce hallucinates a demon speaking through it and calling himself Langstrom. After disposing of the corpse, Bruce is visited by Jason Blood, the host of the demon Etrigan who informs Bruce of a ritual which must be performed with his death, and the destruction of Gotham.

Bruce, Kai Li, and Dick are later invited for a dinner at hunter Oliver Queen's mansion. They also meet Harvey Dent, who tells about Langstrom's obsession with the bats he had been studying.

Donning a bat-themed suit of his making, Bruce (under the alias of Batman) investigates Langstrom's work at Robin's Row, which is related to the Cult of Ghul, a group of worshippers of an ancient demonic deity with the Testament of Ghul being the tool required for the ritual. Seeking the Testament, he stumbles upon cult member Talia and her familiar Daitya. Despite Etrigan's aid in defeating Daitya, Batman fails to stop Talia, who escapes with the Testament.

Meanwhile, Grendon manifests ice abilities, and escapes, killing Jay, while Dick is killed by a crocodilian mutant.
