GO TO... EXT. A DISPLAY

GO TO... EXT. A DISPLAY WINDOW--EARLY EVENING OF THE CURRENT ERA A Batman logo fills the frame with a portentous soundtrack boom. A playful salvo of snowballs reverberates against this image as the logo is revealed to be a hanging center- piece in the display window of a store that sells Batman sleds, lunch boxes, T-shirts, and ticking-to-twenty- before-Seven clocks. EXT. GOTHAM PLAZA--EARLY EVENING Bathed in pristine snow and packed with ELATED SHOPPERS, POINSETTIA GRASPING LOVERS, BLESSED CAROLERS, and an overwhelming array of Christmas decoration, the intimate Plaza center of Gotham City has been dragged kicking and screaming into a state of beauty and happiness. An ALL-AMERICAN DAD holds up a bowed Batman sled to an ALL-AMERICAN MOM. An ALL-AMERICAN SON rushes up causing All-American Dad to exaggeratedly hide the present behind his back. Just behind them, an ADORABLE LITTLE GIRL takes a dollar from her precious little purse and gives it to a SALVATION ARMY SANTA. A sweet, microphoned voice wafts out over the Plaza. SWEET MICROPHONED VOICE (O.S.) Could I have your attention, Gotham City? EXT. FROM AN ELEVATED STAGE AT THE CENTER OF THE PLAZA--EVENING A dewy-eyed young lovely, wearing a snow bunny fur, a tiara, and a banner streamed across her chest that reads ICE PRINCESS, continues into her mike.

down. This causes a mammoth Christmas Tree to light up. The crowd erupts in aahs and oohs. INT. A VERTICAL SEWER GRATE--EVENING Through a grand, vertical half-circle sewer grate, an older pair of strange eyes peer. Taking the point of view of the eyes through the grate slats, one sees the blazing Christmas Tree, just as one did through the Playpen bars. EXT. OUTSIDE THE SEWER GRATE--EVENING A pair of black webbed hands -- flippers, really -- curl out around the grate bars. Eerily poking out next is a twisted bird-like nose and a creepy pair of barely audible lips. THE CREEPY LIPS "I know when you are sleeping, I know when you're awake." The world's most beloved butler, ALFRED, marches past the sewer grate, past a PAPERBOY who bustles up, holding a newspaper headlined "PENGUIN -- MAN OR MYTH OR SOMETHING WORSE?" PAPERBOY Read about the latest sighting of the Penguin creature! He was seen torching a homeless shelter, robbing a blind -- ALFRED Dear Boy! Sometimes it is a diversion to read such piffle. Most times it is a waste of time. Alfred suddenly feels a chill from behind, and below him. He turns to the sewer grate just as the slimy flippers disappear into the darkness. EXT. THE TOP OF THE SHRECK BUILDING--NIGHT The viewer goes from Gotham's bowels to its summit. The top floor of the building housing the department store is a tower of Ivory with a large, friendly sentinel of
