Following a failed attempt to poison the street parade with his noxious gas, The Joker takes Vicky Vale up to the top of Gotham Cathedral. Batman follows, but for added dramatic tension, has to fight his way through a few of The Joker's henchmen in order to get to the big showdown.
We then have a "you created me", "no, you created me" moment, before Batman repeatedly punches The Joker in the face, each punch sending him reeling closer to the edge of the cathedral. A final punch from Batman sends The Joker flying over, supposedly to his death.
Batman and Vale both lean over to see, but have their hands grabbed by The Joker, who drags them over the ledge. Our hero and his eye candy are now left dangling precariously below The Joker, who is climbing up a rope ladder attached to his helicopter.
Batman does have one more useful device on his utility belt though, and fires a harpoon at The Joker. The harpoon wraps itself around The Joker's leg and, rather unbelievably, the other end of the rope manages to wrap itself around a rather weighty stone gargoyle.
Batman's utility belt comes to the rescue once again...
The gargoyle breaks off from the cathedral and the weight slowly, rung by rung, drags The Joker back down the ladder.
We get a moment of desperation as he tries to hold on to the last rung, before finally he loses his grip and plunges into the darkness below.
