An Evil BATMAN Squadron Descends On The DC Comics Universe This Fall

Forget Owlman - an evil hybrid of Batman and Doomsday is the stuff of nightmares. But there will be six other "corrupted" versions of The Dark Knight menacing the DC Universe as well!

These corrupted versions of Batman hailing from the Dark Universe apparently manipulate various Gotham City villains towards accomplishing some mysterious diabolical plot.  DC obviously (and understandably) can't give away any details on their plan at this early juncture.

The story of the villains and heroes that band together to oppose them will play out in Teen Titans #12 (September 13), Nightwing #29 (September 20), Suicide Squad #26 (September 27) and Green Arrow #32 (October 4). These four issues will comprise a miniseries titled Gotham Resistance.

Dark Nights: Metal #1 kicks things off on August 16.  For a peek at more teaser artwork, head over to the official DC Comics blog
