EXCLUSIVE: The Batman Who Laughs Returns in Justice League #13

Readers have known for months that Lex Luthor is holding a maniacal prisoner in the bowels of the Legion of Doom's headquarters, but why he has The Batman Who Laughs chained up has remained relatively unclear. This week, in Justice League #13, the answer to that mystery will be revealed, and CBR has an exclusive first look at how it all goes down.

Not only will the Joker confront Lex, expressing his displeasure with the leader of the Legion, the issue will set the stage for Scott Snyder and Jock's upcoming Batman Who Laughs, a miniseries starring the Dark Nights: Metal villain which is slated to debut later this month.
