You know at the end of the day, when you close the door and you're all alone... And you strip off your armor and lower your guard and peel away the mask... When there's nobody watching and nothing to hide... And you no longer need to be strong or clever or pretty or brave... There's just you. That's it. That's the soul.

Now I might get some backlash from this cause a lot of people tend to react badly to Batgirl getting given darker storylines, but I really wanted to explore a fan theory that inspired me to create this cover, and I felt this angle was the best to go down. Basically, in case anybody hasn’t heard the theory, (I’m sure most have, but anyway) it goes along the terms of Jared Leto’s Joker not being the original Joker in this universe, and his Joker is in fact a turned Jason Todd.

Personally I thought this was fascinating and a little too clever. But none the less I wanted to explore it. I followed the quote “20 years in Gotham. How many good guys left? How many stayed that way?” And looked to explore the events of Jason (Red Hood at the time) being turned by the present (first) Joker, from the point of view of Batgirl (Barbara Gordon), who is very often on the darker and controversial end of the Joker’s antics. The story line I have in my head is we see Batman and Jason facing off against Joker in an intense battle. And Joker wins. He beats the caped crusader to the edge of death while in a mad fit of laughter. He locks Bruce in a cage, and begins to experiment on Jason forcing Bruce to watch. The story would explore Bruce fighting to keep his sanity while watching as Jason loses his. Joker beats Jason, violently tattoos him, and exposes him to high concentrations of his laughing gas.

Eventually Jason’s mind gives away. Finally the Joker has puppet to play with, in which he’s expecting to be his final days, he wants to push The Bat Family to the very edge and make them turn on everything they believe no matter how far he goes. We would follow Batgirl striving to find where Bruce is and save him, while Jason donned in his Red Hood gear causes mayhem across an ever horrifying Gotham.

Barbara is struggling to keep it together as the city tears itself apart and comprehend what has happened to Jason, why he’s acting like this. And where is Batman? Can she save him? We see some awesome and gritty fight scenes, some typical Joker and Batman interaction and Batgirl throwing most of her morals out of the window just to survive over the course of the movie, the climax would end up with Batgirl tracking down Joker and his hideout. After a very brutal and bloody fight scene Batgirl overcomes Joker significantly and clearly damaging his body, Bruce has to tell her to stop. Then Jason walks in, without his gear on, showing his new Joker like appearance. The room is surrounded in maniacal laughter from both Jason and The Joker. Then we hear the ear shattering sound of a gunshot and only one Joker continues to laugh.

Nice job on this, while I don't think it is your best, this is still pretty good. I would comment on the text on the back not being very easy to read but as you said it's updating and I can't see that yet.

atheistically it looks cool, got a good style. but damn in full view i just find it a little to hectic especially around the text which i found a bit headache inducing, it's a cool premise though, i like the front alot keeps to the gritty batman feel really well.

I realised this as soon as I posted, I'm trying to update the text to be less bold. Thanks for the comment.

It's currently updating with some text changes, if the uploader is compliant they should go into effect soon. Otherwise the full updated image is available in the link provided. I've also gone more minimalistic on the back, cutting the boring legal stuff to clean it up a bit.
