Batman/Superman: Dark Shazam Has a Weapon with the Man of Steel's Name On It

With The Batman Who Laughs having finally come to an end and the titular villain's first victim revealed, a new preview for writer Joshua Williamson and artist David Marquez's Batman/Superman #1 is here, and it teases the showdown between Shazam and the two titular heroes.

The preview sees the currently twisted Shazam facing off against Superman, with the former wielding an Nth metal-infused Batarang that also bears the Man of Steel's insignia, cast by the Dark Multiverse's most dangerous Batman. But before he can take Superman out, Shazam is interrupted by our Dark Knight, who stabs Shazam with one of the hellish weapons, though his bears his foe's lightning bolt.

It's unclear just what these weapons do at this time, but the fact that they were created by the Batman Who Laughs, and bear specific heroes' insignias doesn't bode well.
