A new teaser for Joshua Williamson and David Marquez's Batman/Superman #1 demands to know which DC Universe heroes have been infected. The Year of the Villain teaser from Nick Bradshaw, Cully Hamner and Hi-Fi includes dozens of recognizable DC heroes, such as Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Martian Manhunter and more.
According to the official description,
The first arc of Batman/Superman will follow the two titular heroes as they hunt down six infected heroes in the DCU—people revealed to be infected by the Batman Who Laughs with a deadly pathogen that violently transforms them into the evilest versions of themselves. The Dark Knight and the Man of Steel must journey into the depths of Gotham City to learn which of their fellow heroes has been transformed into the horrifying horseman of their most dangerous and deranged foe ever.
But who are the Infected? Fans have already been shown a sneak preview of Batman/Superman #1, revealing that The Batman Who Laughs’ plot is bigger than either the Caped Crusader or the Man of Steel realized and showing the devious killer’s first sentinel: a jacked-up, Dark Multiverse-infected Shazam! Who else has been targeted for similar transformations?
DC's Year Of The Villain #1 kicked off with a 32-page one-shot, which is available digitally for free. It leads into to some of the biggest story arcs that make up Year of the Villain, with stories by Scott Snyder, James Tynion IV, Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev, plus details on Snyder’s The Batman Who Laughs, Tom King’s "City of Bane" story arc in Batman and the recently announced Batman/Superman by Joshua Williamson and David Marquez.
Joshua Williamson and David Marquez's Batman/Superman #1 goes on sale August 28. The full teaser appears below.
