After revealing the six heroes turned into Dark Multiverse storm troopers for The Batman Who Laughs, DC has announced Donna Troy will star in a Year of the Villain December one-shot.
Donna Troy will headline The Infected: Deathbringer #1, by writer Zoë Quinn (Goddess Mode) and artist Ben Oliver (Detective Comics, Vigilante), which arrives in stores Dec. 4.
The description of The Infected: Deathbringer #1 calls it "a story of a hero who is done with bringing peace to a world that cannot be trusted with it; a woman whose newly awakened dark side is ready to burn it all down and forge a new destiny."
The Infected have also been dubbed the Secret Six, with five of the heroes -- Jim Gordon, Shazam, Supergirl, Blue Beetle and Hawkman -- revealed through preview pages for Batman/Superman, covers for The Infected and the final issue of The Batman Who Laughs miniseries. That left the final member of the Secret Six a mystery, but as it turns out, DC spoiled Donna Troy's infection weeks ago in an animated video on Twitter.
Donna Troy, aka Deathbringer, will join The Batman Who Laughs' twisted Justice League as they prepare to do battle with Apex Lex Luthor in a conclusion to the events of both Justice League's "Justice/Doom War" arc and Batman/Superman's "Infected" arc.
The Infected: Deathbringer #1, by Zoë Quinn and Ben Oliver with a cover by Viktor Bogdanovic, goes on sale Dec. 4.
