Spinning out from the pages of Batman/Superman comes the “First Look” at just how dangerously diabolical the Batman Who Laughs really is when he takes on corrupting one of DC Comics most beloved characters!
Is nothing sacred anymore? Not if you’re the Batman Who Laughs and you’ve unleashed a terrible scheme to destroy the Caped Crusader and Man of Steel once and for all by taking on their allies and infecting the heroes with a virus that will turn them all into the worst examples of themselves! A plan that has begun to spiral into effect in the premiere arc of the new series Batman/Superman. And who was Batman’s evil doppelgänger’s first victim — Spoiler Alert — none other than Earth’s Mightiest Mortal: Shazam!
Poor Billy Batson! He’s always tried to do the right thing, and since inheriting the mystical might of his namesake he’s been doing everything he can to live up to the ideals of Shazam! But when the Batman Who Laughs continues on his vendetta to destroy Batman and turn his world upside, he turns his talents of torture, guile, and manipulation to those that the Dark Knight Detective loves most. None of the Justice League are safe! This is the first spotlight issue and a prelude to the upcoming Year of the Villain: Hell Arisen! an event that will conclude this epic arc.
