Batman, with his new powers, continues to fight for Gotham. However, he begins to feel bloodlust and struggles with refraining from drinking anyone's blood. Cue SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker who steps in to boss Dracula's remaining {{mooks}} around. He begins a spree of killing Gotham's wealthier criminals and taking their belongings. Selina Kyle makes an appearance as a normal person, but is bitten and becomes a WereCat. She meets Batman and provides her company, which curbs his bloodlust. In a later fight with the Joker, she is killed, infuriating Batman. He succumbs to his bloodlust and sucks the Joker dry. Horrified by what he has done, Batman orders Gordon and Alfred to stake him.

Added DiffLines:

* AxCrazy: By the time of ''Crimson Mist'', Batman has devolved into little more than a bloodthirsty monster who eagerly beheads his victims and drains them of blood. By the end of the story, he states that perhaps he's become an even bigger monster than ''Dracula himself''.

* TheBadGuyWins: In Bloodstorm, Batman considers this the case after he [[spoiler: succumbs to his bloodlust and kills the Joker, reflecting that the Joker has finally turned Batman into a killer like himself]].



* EvilCannotComprehendGood: As Batman becomes increasingly corrupted, he reflects that while once saw Tanya and Selina's [[HeroicSacrifice heroic sacrifices]] as noble, he now sees them as foolish.

Added DiffLines:

* EvilerThanThou: Invoked. At the end of Crimson Mist, Batman remarks that he's become worse than criminals like Two-Face, perhaps even worse than Dracula himself.


Added DiffLines:

* GodzillaThreshold: Several during Crimson Mist:
** With crime running rampant throughout Gotham since Batman's staking, Alfred becomes so desperate to give the city a savior again that he removes the stake from Bats' body, reviving him. Sadly, Batman has been driven completely insane by his bloodlust and his body's decay, and embarks on a rampage, killing nearly all of Gotham's villains.
** After Batman kills most of his RoguesGallery, including the inmates of Arkham Asylum, Gordon agrees to an EnemyMine with Two-Face and Killer Croc to stop him.
* GoneHorriblyRight: Alfred revived Batman in Crimson Mist to give Gotham a savior and put an end to the crime wave. Batman does so... by killing all of Gotham's villains and draining them of their blood.


Added DiffLines:

* WalkingWasteland: Only shown once, but in Crimson Mist, when Batman attacks Poison Ivy, his mere presence causes her plants to wither and die.

* AndIMustScream: Batman's fate in-between Bloodstorm and Crimson Mist. As Batman was not [[OffWithHisHead decapitated]] after he was staked, he was only kept in a death-like state, fully conscious and aware of his body's decay and his bloodlust and ''unable to do anything about it.'' Is it any wonder why he goes nuts?

* AlternateUniverse: Before ''CrisisOnInfiniteEarths'', this world was listed as Earth-1191. Following ''InfiniteCrisis'' it's been designated as Earth-43.

* DarkerAndEdgier: Invoked and Lampshaded with the Riddler, who has gone from extortion and robbery to drug trafficking and murder, combining the two by using a murder victim's body to store heroin. Within the work itself, both Bloodstorm and Crimson Mist are much darker than Red Rain, both ending on near-complete downers compared to Red Rain's BittersweetEnding.
