Batman: The Devastator Takes on Superman in DC First Look

Batman: The Devastator by Jason Fabok

Two pages from the upcoming Batman: The Devastator #1 one-shot were revealed today at a panel at New York Comic Con. The comic is just one of seven one-shot issues that tie into the Dark Nights: Metal series. Each issue will focus on another corrupted Batman recruited by the bat-demon Barbatos to invade the world of DC Comics. The Devastator is one such evil Batman.

The unholy union of Batman and one of Superman’s greatest foes, Doomsday, the Devastator is a hulking monstrosity made of spikes, teeth and fury. According to the new art, the Devastator will be following in Doomsday’s footsteps, as the creature can be seen going toe-to-toe with Superman.

While the exact narrative depicted in the panels isn’t 100% clear, it would appear as though the Devastator has a human form. The first page sees a wounded Batman crawling towards a spear. Superman easily knocks the spear away with a quick laser blast, but the Batman activates something on his utility belt that triggers a transformation into the Devastator.

What was once a bloody stump of an arm quickly regenerates and Superman is knocked back by the newly-formed creature’s inhuman strength. The inclusion of a transformation element to the Devastator is reminiscent of another Batman foe, Bane, whose strength and dexterity is aided by a drug called Venom.
