The world of Batman: White Knight expands with this standalone tale! On the night of Bruce Wayne's traumatic birth- Victor Fries must intervene to save the lives of Martha Wayne and the future Batman. As the evening unfolds- Victor distracts Thomas with the incredible tale of his own father figures-one a Nazi- the other a Jew-and their complex connection to Wayne Laboratories. As the Third Reich roars into power- the deep friendship and working relationship between the Baron von Fries and his research partner- Jacob Smithstein- is in crisis. Ordered by Himmler to speed development of their cryotechnology in service of world domination- Smithstein is forced to go into hiding and compromise his moral code in order to save his wife and infant daughter- Nora- from persecution and certain death. When the S.S. ramps up surveillance over the project- young Victor begins to question his father's true allegiance. Both families are driven toward an impossible choice and a sinister standoff- and Victor makes a pact with Smithstein that will ripple through generations.
